After the European season concluded with the Italian Grand Prix last time out, Formula 1 moves to Asia for the Singapore Grand Prix.

A dramatic qualifying session saw Charles Leclerc take pole position by just 0.022s on a drying track, ahead of Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton.

Max Verstappen can seal his second World Championship on Sunday if results go his way, but the Dutchman will have to work his way up from eighth on the grid, after he was forced to abort his final flying lap owing to a lack of fuel.

The Singapore Grand Prix runs to 61 laps of the Marina Bay Street Circuit, and with the tight confines resulting in low average speeds, the race is expected to run close to the two-hour time limit.

F1's original night race begins at 20:00 local time, meaning a 13:00 start for viewers in the UK, and 14:00 for those on Central European Time.

Viewers in the United States' east coast can take in the race over breakfast at 08:00, while west coast dwellers will have to set their alarm clocks for a 05:00 start.

For viewers in Japan, the race starts at 21:00, while those on Australia's east coast will have to wait until 23:00 for lights out.
