Cape Town - Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel will edge his Mercedes title rival Lewis Hamilton to the chequered flag in Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix, if bookmakers are to be believed...

Vettel, who trails Hamilton by three points in this year's drivers' standings, has enjoyed tremendous success on the Marina Bay street circuit and will be looking for a fifth victory in what will be the 10th running of the race.

Meanwhile, Hamilton, a three-time F1 world champion and two-time winner in Singapore, will be looking for a 60th race victory of his career.

The Singapore GP is the 14th stop on the 20-race 2017 calendar.

According to leading SA bookies Sportingbet, Vettel can be backed at 6/4 while Hamilton is on offer at 9/5.

Red Bull duo Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen are both available at 7/1, while Hamilton's team-mate Valtteri Bottas, who penned a new contract at Mercedes this week, can be backed at 17/2.

Defending Singapore GP winner Nico Rosberg retired after winning last year's drivers title.

The race is scheduled to roar into action at 14:00 (SA time) on Sunday.
