  • Singapore GP Press Release -'A PERFECT DAY AT THE OFFICE'
    drivers occupied the top five finishing positions Vettel had to react quickly in pit lane as he and Heikki Kovalainen s Lotus almost came together after their second tyre stops but the only time the leader looked less than in total command was in the final five laps when the leaders were on Pirelli s quicker Supersoft option tyre and Button reduced the gap to under four seconds Late race traffic especially a full lap spent behind Kamui Kobayashi s slower Sauber cost Button any chance of catching Vettel a task he admitted would have been beyond him anyway In the last stint I was able to drive as fast as I could it was like 10 12 qualifying laps I couldn t have gone any faster Button said after his first appearance on a Singapore podium It was the best we could have done today I feel that I got everything out of the car Webber once more fell victim to his start line gremlins losing second spot on the grid before the first corner as both Button and Alonso swept through then having to fight his way past the Ferrari driver in another of the spectacular duels that have been a feature of their 2011 season They re enjoyable but I m not keen to sign up for them all the time because it means I m with him when I probably shouldn t be Webber admitted Again it was a difficult start for me we need to work on this because it makes my race more difficult Ultimately we pretty much got what we deserved today The stewards of the meeting decided Hamilton deserved a drive through penalty for a 13th lap collision with Ferrari s Felipe Massa that left the Brazilian with a right rear puncture and the McLaren with a damaged front wing Hamilton winner here in 2009 fought back superbly to finish fifth as Massa came home in ninth There were five first timers in the race and the best of them was Scotland s Paul di Resta taking his own best F1 finish with a fine sixth place for Force India who also saw Adrian Sutil in the points in eight position Between them was Nico Rosberg whose Mercedes teammate Michael Schumacher gave the crowd its most heart stopping moment when an attempted passing manoeuvre at Turn 8 saw him climb over the back of Sergio Perez s Sauber and crashed into retirement fortunately without damage to himself The mid race incident brought out the Safety Car for its only appearance of the evening but Perez was able to continue and collect the final point for 10th place the Mexican rookie s third scoring finish of the season Sunday gave the Singapore crowd two other races to enjoy with Afiq Ikhwan Yazid making it a double for Meritus in the second JK Racing Asia Series 10 lap encounter ahead of Petronas Mofaz driver Nabil Jeffri and Duvashen Padayachee of Eurasia Motorsport Once again

  • Singapore GP Press Release -'ALL IN ALL A PERFECT SESSION'
    Webber also underlined the other drivers determination not to hand Vettel his second championship on a plate The racing this year has been great and I think we re going to have some more great races before the year s out he added Tomorrow will hopefully be another good one and I m planning to go forward if I can at some stage in the race which is one more position got to keep him honest as long as we can On a grid where each of the five front rows is occupied by a single team Jenson Button edged out his McLaren Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton to claim third spot but voiced concerns over his lack of running on a full fuel load after a disrupted opening practice day Hamilton recovered from a Q2 puncture and was in the top two early in the final session but a refuelling problem stopped the 2009 Singapore winner from making a final run Behind the McLarens come both Ferraris with Fernando Alonso just 0 063 of a second slower than Hamilton but almost a second faster than Felipe Massa in the sister car In a curious 10 minute final segment Mercedes Benz left it late to send out first Nico Rosberg then Michael Schumacher the younger German beating his illustrious compatriot by just over two tenths of a second while Force India content with getting both cars through to Q3 opted not to send either Adrian Sutil or Paul di Resta out again The evening s only casualty was Kamui Kobayashi whose Sauber Ferrari brought out the red flag early in Q2 when it was briefly airborne through the Singapore Sling at Turn 10 The car slithered into the barrier on the right hand side with no injury to the driver but terminal damage to his chances of reaching Q3 After a brief interruption the Japanese driver s team mate Sergio Perez almost made up for Kobayashi s mishap when he momentarily had the second Sauber in the top 10 only for fellow rookie Di Resta to demote him in the final seconds Neither of the Lotus Renaults made it into the top 10 with Vitaly Petrov again caught out on a circuit he has struggled with in the past His own team mate Bruno Senna relegated the Russian at the finish of Q1 but the Brazilian in turn could do no better than 15th in Q2 Vettel is within striking distance of Nigel Mansell s all time one season record of 14 poles set with Williams Renault in 1992 but refused to let that distract him from his main target Before the tense qualifying hour began about 40 000 fans flocked to the Padang for a power packed concert by Grammy Award winning Colombian superstar Shakira and after the race partied the night away with Mr Boombastic Shaggy himself Marina Bay fans earlier had two incident packed support races to enjoy Afik Ikhwan Yazid used his pole position perfectly to

    going all right said the Australian so I just need to find a bit more and get into it tomorrow Michael Schumacher who has finished fifth in his last two Grands Prix confirmed his resurgence with sixth fastest time for Mercedes I like the race here said the man who has won more races than any F1 driver in history It is a bit like the modern Monaco very exciting with more run off areas Hamilton had been quickest in an opening session shortened by half an hour to allow repairs to the kerbing at Turn 14 dislodged during the day s earlier support race practice and was briefly red flagged for further repairs after 50 minutes While Hamilton said the kerbs must be taking some serious damage from the cars Lawrence Foo Assistant Director of Technical Race Operations for Singapore GP said it was premature to speculate on the cause We have yet to carry out a full assessment on site Mr Foo explained We have had a preliminary meeting with FIA Race Director Charlie Whiting and we have identified the rectification measures required This work will be carried out overnight The second session got under way on schedule and it was Vettel who immediately went to the top His dominance was briefly challenged late in the session when the drivers switched to Pirelli s super soft tyre compound worth around a second a lap here and the Ferraris instantly benefited as first Massa then Alonso dislodged Vettel from first place With half an hour of the session remaining however Vettel winner on all three previous street circuits this season put in the lap that returned him to the top and kept him there The day s big loser was McLaren s Jenson Button who missed the right hander

  • Singapore GP Press Release -SWITCHED-ON SINGAPORE SET UP FOR STREET-SMART SEB
    race in 2008 winner for Ferrari last year third in 09 on pole last year two fastest laps No wonder F1 s most lion hearted driver has an ongoing love affair with the Lion City The Singapore circuit suits my driving style he says simply in the way of me being very aggressive going very close to the walls and trying to maximise the performance of the car in slow speed corners And you need to attack and be aggressive in the driving style so this is something that I love While Vettel chases Championship glory two time title winner Alonso is making history of his own His sole victory of 2011 so far in the British Grand Prix was the 27th of his career Should he win for a third time here then Fernando would go past Scotland s Sir Jackie Stewart into fifth place on the all time F1 winners list Only Michael Schumacher 91 Alain Prost 51 Ayrton Senna 41 and Nigel Mansell 31 would be ahead of the 30 year old Spaniard Thanks to the more generous points system introduced in 2010 that Silverstone victory also made Alonso only the second man in World Championship history after Schumacher to amass more than 1000 points 1001 so far to be precise but 252 last year and 172 so far in 2011 have skewed his record in comparison with previous greats of the sport Alarmingly for the rest of the field Vettel s personal assault on the record books continues apace At just 24 he has 18 wins and is in the top 14 already with 25 pole positions although none in Singapore so far he has only seven drivers ahead of him He has a chance to become the single season record holder if he can take pole in five of the last six races of the year he has 10 so far in 2011 and Nigel Mansell claimed 14 in 1992 Perhaps more tellingly Vettel s astonishing 2011 record of only one finish outside the top two in 13 races so far has helped him to a career figure of 51 points scoring results in 75 starts a 68 strike rate that already has him in the all time top three At the other end of the F1 spectrum Switzerland s Sébastien Buemi reaches his 50 race landmark in Singapore at the weekend while first timers on the Marina Bay streets are Pastor Maldonado of Williams Force India s Paul di Resta and Mexican Sergio Perez Like Singapore itself the Marina Bay circuit has many faces at least two of which are familiar to the only other driver to have won here Lewis Hamilton It s almost two tracks in one says the 2009 Singapore winner There are quite a few fast corners which require good set up and a bit of commitment but there are also lots of tighter 90 degree bends which are slower and more technical You ve got to keep it precise
