F1 has moved out of Europe and is back in Asia for the Singapore Grand Prix, this season's second night race following the introduction of Bahrain.

The Mercedes boys are back in form and took a comfortable one-two finish at Monza in the last race. But this race could see them face competition from Red Bull, as the street circuit will put less emphasis on the more powerful Mercedes engines and more on the down force and traction of the car.

Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel will be keen to add to Red Bull's three race victories this season.

Drivers' Championship Review

Lewis Hamilton has closed the gap to team-mate Nico Rosberg, who is in first place following victory at Monza. Despite his victory he only managed to cover up seven points owing to Rosberg's second place finish.

With the double points rule this season, we can expect the battle to go right down to the last race of the season. Daniel Ricciardo seems comfortable in third place, just waiting to pounce on any mistakes by the Mercedes duo.

But the fight for fourth, fifth and sixth will be a close one between Valterri Bottas, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel, with the Finn leading the Spaniard by just a solitary point in fourth.

Constructors' Championship Review

When it comes to the Constructors' Championship, there is no battle. The superior performance of the Mercedes team sees them way ahead of the pack, with second placed Red Bull a whopping 182 points behind the leaders.

However, the battle for third and fourth is a close one between Williams and Ferrari, with the former leading by just 15 points.
