Singapore Grand Prix – The Singapore night

The championship bids farewell to Europe

Maranello, 15 September –Formula 1 now leaves Europe to tackle the final seven races of the season. The first of these takes place at night through the city streets of Singapore. Alberto Antonini, head of Scuderia Ferrari’s press office explains the main characteristics of this track to “The Singapore Grand Prix is very demanding: the average speed is very low and usually the race runs close to the two hour time limit and simply finishing is no mean feat. The track places heavy demands on the braking system and managing traction is also important. The latter involves taking into consideration the many slow 90 degree turns, which also give the brakes a hard time. Given the twisty nature of the layout, there’s not enough time to cool the discs or the calipers, an aspect the teams have to keep in mind while setting up the car. The Singapore event runs to a different timetable, effectively taking place on European time, so that the personnel arrive at the track around lunchtime, working into the early hours of the following morning. For us, it’s just one more race on the calendar, to be tackled with the same attitude as usual, with our heads down and our feet firmly on the ground. What we can definitely promise our fans is that we will be giving it our best shot.”
