He also produced a spirited performance past year as he raced from the back of the grid to finish at the fifth spot.

The pair were fourth and sixth, respectively, in the evening.

Despite Hamilton's strong form in the second half of the season - winning in Belgium and Italy respectively - Mercedes remain fearful of the more reliable Ferrari engine's history in the Far East, seeing his rival Sebastian Vettel re-taking the lead this weekend.

It was not just the qualifying but throughout the weekend Ferrari and Red Bull outpaced Mercedez who were literally flying earlier in the season. "For some reason Ferrari are slower, I don't know why".

He then made a decision to focus on long-run race simulations.

McLaren and power-unit supplier Honda confirmed their split ahead of the session, ending Formula One's long-running engine saga and allowing the spotlight to return to the on-track action.

Tomorrow's race in the city-state would otherwise have been the last.

"In 2015, Singapore provided us with one of the most painful experiences in recent seasons, so we rolled up the sleeves, learned from it and managed to bounce back with a great win a year ago". It has also contributed S$1.4bn in tourism receipts to Singapore over the past decade and drawn over 450,000 global visitors, including projected arrivals for this year's race. "Singapore continues to command a certain differential position, and that has been one of the key considerations that has informed our own decision about extending the term of the contract". Some 780 million viewers worldwide have tuned in over the years to watch the street race, and with it glimpsed spectacular views of the nation's distinctive skyline. For instance, headliners at this year's race weekend include Calvin Harris and Ariana Grande.

It's no secret that Formula One has the highest level of technology in racing.
