Drivers appear at the Thursday press conference in Singapore to discuss their thoughts ahead of the race weekend. Daniel Ricciardo, Sergio Pérez, Timo Glock, Sébastien Buemi, Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg were all in attendance as the questions poured forth.

Both Pérez and Ricciardo face their first F1 weekend in Singapore, and Sergio was keen to do his homework: "Yesterday I went to walk the track even though it wasn’t completely finished. I think it is a very difficult circuit to learn. I am looking forward to driving at night. It will be my first experience doing a night race and it’s a street circuit and I always enjoy to drive on the streets."

Ricciardo added: "It is always nice to come to a new one. Lots of corners. It is going to be quite difficult to remember where it all goes, but I spent some time on the simulator so it should help me out."

Meanwhile, Sebastian Vettel is facing the prospect of winning the championship this weekend, if all went well for him and badly for his rivals. However, the German is not keen on thinking about it: "As you said would, could, should. So far we haven’t won anything. We are in a good position but still some way to go. We have to race and do our normal job and try to achieve our best. It is one of the most difficult tracks for the car, for the drivers. It is a long, long way to the chequered flag.|
