F1 visits the Lion City for the fourth time, with Fernando Alonso the only man to have won twice there.
Red Bull has never won – nor has a Red Bull car been on pole position so they have work to do to maintain their 100% 2011 record.
McLaren’s Martin Whitmarsh says the addition of DRS will make for ‘electrifying racing’, with the DRS zone to be between Turns 5 and 7.
It’s the season’s toughest race for brakes and gearboxes with its 23 turns – 10 of them in the last 1500m of its 5.073km.
‘I hope to nail it this year,’ says Mark Webber, third last year but never totally at ease round Marina Bay.
And Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi sums it up beautifully: ‘Singapore is always very close to wall…’
