Red Bull has been completely dominating the 2023 season, and until the Singapore Grand Prix, they had won every single race.
In Singapore, however, they were not the dominant force, not in qualifying, nor in the race itself.
At the post Singapore Grand Prix press conference, Lewis Hamilton tried to guess why that is.
“I wasn’t really watching much of others this weekend so I don’t really know why they’re off pace-wise,” the Briton said.
“But I think it’s great to see that others are… McLarens have picked up huge amount of pace, it’s great to see that Ferrari have really stepped it up and I think it’s a positive.

“I think, probably if you think about it, they haven’t been developing. Obviously McLaren brought an upgrade here.
“Others are bringing upgrades, they’re working on next year’s car. They have less wind tunnel time so then they’re probably using some of this year’s on to next year’s.
“They would have definitely migrated before us. So no, I think it’s just one of those things.
“They are so clear ahead that maybe they’re developing their car less and we are still pushing to develop our current one.
“But time will tell,” Hamilton concluded.
