Williams preview the Singapore GP

With the Marina Bay Street Circuit having similar aerodynamics characteristics to Barcelona - a track where Pastor Maldonado won - Williams feel they should do well in Singapore.

Pastor Maldonado: "This is my second time at Singapore which is a great city with a great atmosphere. The race is unique because it takes place at night and you have to adapt to the temperature change and of course the time difference because we stay on European time all week. The track requires high downforce which is good for us and it's similar to Barcelona in terms of aerodynamics so this should be a track where we can show the potential of our car."

Bruno Senna: "Singapore should suit our car because it's a high downforce and load circuit and that's where the car feels at home the most. Of course it's hard to judge where we will be as others teams are improving all the time, but if we can score points in Monza then we should be looking to get further into the top ten in Singapore. I had a good performance there last year as well so that always gives you a boost before a race."

Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer: "The night race through the streets of Singapore is a special event and one that the team looks forward to. It's a long and physically demanding race for both driver and car. As overtaking is difficult qualifying position becomes even more important. With the longest pitlane of the season, which is taken at 60kph, as opposed to the normal 100kph, one tends to perform the least pitstops possible. Pirelli are bringing the soft and super-soft tyres to this race, a combination that was last used in both Monaco and Canada. The circuit is extremely severe on brakes and due to the hot ambient temperatures we will be required to open the bodywork for engine cooling. Aero wise we run near the maximum down-force level and from a set-up perspective you have to be mindful of the harsh kerbs. Finally the weather is difficult to track in Singapore and heavy rain is always a possibility."
