There were a few surprises on the track during practice at the Singapore Airlines Formula One Grand Prix in Singapore.  A surprise showing by the Ferrari team gave fans a reason to sit up and take notice. At the end of the first practice session, the fastest man on the track was Fernando Alonso.  MercedesAMG driver, Lewis Hamilton, was second fastest, followed by his teammate, Nico Rosberg.

Four-time champion Red Bull Sebastian Vettel seems to be improving and had the fourth fastest car.  Lotus driver Pastor Maldonado did not disappoint when he ended his practice session, after hitting the side of the wall at a turn known as, ‘the Singapore Sling’.  Rosberg had to cut short his second lap, when Maldonado hit the wall. Prior to Maldonado’s crash, Rosberg was fastest on the track, so Hamilton must not under-estimate him at qualifying.  By the end of practice 2,  fastest on the track was Hamilton, Alonso, Daniel Ricciardo, Kimi Raikkonen then Sebastian Vettel.

The weekend entertainment during the Singapore Grand Prix features, family friendly entertainment, and late night performances for the mature party set.
