In a year of many firsts, Jules Bianchi expects his debut Singapore GP will be "one of the highlights" of his season.
The Frenchman is in the midst of a solid debut campaign with Marussia and is responsible for the team's position of 10th in the Championship.
Although he has yet to score a single point, his P13 at the Malaysian Grand Prix has placed his team ahead of Caterham in the race to be the best of the newcomers.
And although points are very unlikely at this weekend's Singapore GP, the 24-year-old is relishing the opportunity to experience his first night race.
"The Singapore Grand Prix will be a totally new experience for me as my first night race," Bianchi stated.
"In my debut season, where everything is new, it is certainly one of the highlights of the calendar for me and I can't wait for next weekend.
"Having been to the race previously I know that there are so many different aspects to the weekend - staying on European hours, going to bed when I should be getting up and eating breakfast in the middle of the afternoon.
"I've driven the track on the simulator and it looks like a lot of fun, although it will be pretty hot in the cockpit."
He added: "The next part of the season is going to be quite a challenge for everyone, but the team is pushing so hard to maintain 10th place in the Championship and I really hope that is going to be possible for us."
