Vettel says Ferrari need maximum downforce to get a result in Singapore

Sebastian Vettel says that if Ferrari are to get a positive result in Singapore they will need to have the "maximum downforce" possible on their car.

Vettel has struggled in the last few races despite teammate Charles Leclerc's consecutive victories in Belgium and Italy, the first of his career and the first of Ferrari's season.

However, Ferrari are expected to struggle in Singapore, but Vettel is still wanting to have a good go at one of his favourite tracks.

He said in Ferrari's press release: “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.

"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. 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.”
