Williams preview the Singapore GP

Williams preview the Singapore GP

Williams will introduce an upgraded diffuser and new front wing in Singapore, as the team looks to bounce back...

Rubens Barrichello: "I love Singapore and I think the night race has been a great success. I don't really have a favourite corner as all of them are very challenging. Turn 4, for example, is a medium speed corner with some bumps on the way in that makes you double your attention but you can gain a lot of time there. As it is a long lap you need to keep the car and tyres in good shape as the last corner is a high speed one that determines your speed onto the straight. Williams has always done well there and I hope this time it is no different."

Pastor Maldonado: "Marina Bay is a new track for me so I will need to work hard to learn it ready for qualifying. It will be my first time in Singapore and my first time racing at night as well. Everyone has told me it is the most beautiful place so I'm looking forward to getting there. I really like street circuits so I think I can be quick there. We have some upgrades for this race that we hope will be a big improvement and help us better our last result. It has been nice to be back in Venezuela since racing in Italy, especially visiting Canaima National Park last week as it was a great experience. I'm now feeling very relaxed and ready to get back to work in Singapore."

Sam Michael, Technical Director: "Singapore has all the challenges, for both the drivers and engineers, of a classic street race, but with the addition of it also being held at night. There is a large improvement in track grip as the race weekend progresses. There are also more bumps and kerbs to deal with compared to normal and downforce is set to a maximum. Good traction with minimal understeer are always the focus of the car set-up here. We have an upgraded diffuser and a new front wing assembly for the first of the flyaways. We'll test both of them on Friday."
