Sebastian Vettel hopes to bounce back at Singapore this weekend

Sebastian Vettel is hoping that he can put the disappointment of Monza behind him with a podium finish at Singapore this weekend. Last time out Vettel span off the track and collided with Lance Stroll leading to the stewards giving him a 10-second penalty. Vettel is now only 3 points away from a race ban so will want a clean race as well as getting back to the top. 

“After Spa-Francorchamps and Monza, we are going to a very different circuit: Singapore, which is one I really enjoy. It´s a street circuit, bumpy and with no room for errors and it’s one of the few races run under lights," Vettel said.

"We stay on European time, which is a bit strange because we leave the circuit when the locals are getting up with a six hour-time difference."

The track is very physical and required a lot from both the driver and the car. 

"We need maximum downforce and have the three softest tyre compounds. We have seen before that anything can happen in this race, so the final result is hard to predict.

"Off the track, there will also be a lot of pressure on the teams as this race is back to back with Russia.”

The Ferrari's have been looking fast after the summer break and will hope to keep up their winning streak.
