This year lap times at the Singapore circuit will be faster than ever before after changes were made to Turn 10.
Ahead of next weekend's night race, race organisers opted to make changes to the circuit by removing the chicane at Turn 10.
Instead a single-apex left-hand bend has been laid down, which means drivers could head in about 40 km/h faster than before.
Speaking about the change, Fernando Alonso Tweeted: "These days working in the simulator. New turn 10 in Singapore this year, without the chicane of before. The lap is around 1sec faster..."
Meanwhile, the official F1 website reports other changes in that track has been resurfaced at Turns 1 to 3 and also Turns 5, 8 and between 13 and 14. The pit lane has also been resurfaced.
