Sergio Perez is confident Sauber can produce the goods at the Marina Bay circuit, a track that should suit their C31.

The 22-year-old is riding a wave of confidence heading to Singapore, having achieved his third podium finish of this campaign last time out in Monza.

It was a sensational Sunday afternoon for the Sauber driver, who raced from 12th to second having made the most of his late one-stop strategy.

Perez, though, is now looking ahead to the next outing, the Singapore GP, where he hopes to secure another good result for himself and Sauber.

“The Singapore Grand Prix is a very special race on an extraordinary track with an unique schedule,” said the Mexican driver. “You race at night and you live at night.

“Also it will be the first round back in Asia after quite a while. The amount of travelling is increasing a lot now.

“I generally like street circuits and the one in Singapore is physically quite demanding, but I feel prepared for that.

“Also for our car it should be an okay track to race on.

“I am very much looking forward to it and I want to get in another good result for the team at that very prestigious race.”
