Mark Webber:
Q: What are the first three things that come to mind when you think of the Singapore GP?
Hot, night and bumpy!

Q: Toughest bit of the track to get right?
The last sector is probably the toughest to get right, it's a very demanding last sector and the rhythm is very important over the bumps and the curves. You need to get the last sector correct.

Q: Tell us your best racing moment here?
I think being on the podium is my best moment, after a long and hot race it's a pretty good reward. I finished on the podium in 2010 and 2011, so both of those were special moments for me.

Q: Finally, have you ever had a Singapore Sling? If so, when and how did you rate it?
Very good! I had one with my mother on Monday after the race, she bought it for me so I had a Singapore Sling, in Raffles - it was good and I liked it so I had another one!

Sebastian Vettel:
Q: Is it a myth about drivers staying on European time for Singapore? Can you really stop yourself adjusting? Do you try?
It sounds unusual but because the race starts at 8pm we have to try and stay on European time as much as possible, to make sure we're alert later into the night. I get up at about lunchtime and have breakfast at about 2pm because that's 8am in Switzerland. It is a bit weird to have lunch in the evening and go to bed in the early hours of the morning. But we've done it for a few years now so it feels more normal than it did the first time.

Q: Best place to overtake here and how?
You tend to see the most passes into Turn 8, and then next common is using DRS into Turn 7.

Q: Tell us your best racing moment here?
My wins in 2011 and 2012 were the best because I think it's one of the toughest races of the year to be honest, so to win is an amazing moment and you feel you deserve the champagne! It's a very long race; the full two hours so the race just seems to go on forever. The circuit itself is a killer because there are so many bumps, there's no room for mistakes.

Felipe Nasr and Valtteri Bottas head out to begin the fourth and final day
