Carlos Sainz was quickest of all on Friday in Singapore Grand Prix second practice ahead of Formula 1's return to Marina Bay.

He posted a 1:42.857 lap on the Soft tyres to pip teammate Charles Leclerc to the top spot, although it was a disrupted session for the #16 Ferrari.

The Mercedes duo of George Russell and Lewis Hamilton – fastest in FP1 – didn't get clean laps in either, while championship leader Max Verstappen also had a disrupted session on his way to fourth, putting in just two flying laps.

It means everything is building nicely ahead of qualifying this afternoon – but when does it actually get underway?

The F1 paddock stays on European time for the Singapore Grand Prix due to the event being a night race. It means the timings for Saturday are in line with traditional European times.

Qualifying is due to go green at 2pm BST in the UK, which is 9pm local time in Singapore.
