Felipe Massa takes Lewis Hamilton to School at Singapore

AnthonyCorrespondent ISeptember 28, 2008

Massa is 6/10th quicker than the rest of the field in Formula 1's first ever night race!

He was definitely the quickest, but with speed trap and sector speed data, his Ferrari must be a stealth jet fighter, because he only showed up in sector 3.

Just an interesting tidbit of info after looking at the sector speeds and speed trap data from Singapore.

The two McLarens were consistently the fastest cars on the track in P1, 2, and 3, and even in qualifying. Fernando Alonso and Nelson Piquet Jr. were also consistently fast.

However, the only time that Massa showed up was in sector 3 within a range of 250 KPH to 253 KPH in Q3, matching Kovalainen and beating Hamilton by just 1 KPH.

So, Massa's Ferrari is beating the McLarens out of the the corners, and I daresay that Kimi is as well, because he also flew under the radar all weekend.

The weather conditions seem to be in check and consistent with the weather that the drivers have experienced all weekend, with the humidity and ambient air pressure steadily rising; and it seems the wind speed is decreasing back to practice levels as I type.

I think Massa has got this one in the bag if Ferrari's strategy plays into Massa's favour and not McLaren's.

Hopefully, we will have a nice clean race today/tonight? I'll see you all at the TV set in a couple of hours!
