After the rather embarrassing list of penalties that hit the grid for the Italian Grand Prix, things have gone back to normal for Singapore. Just one driver has a penalty to take for the race, with Marcus Ericsson earning himself a five place grid drop for a gearbox change on his Sauber. Ericsson crashed the car during Friday practice, causing a red flag, but the team have patched up the damage and got him ready to race.

Out front, there's no change with Sebastian Vettel holding on to a somewhat surprising pole position, with two Red Bull drivers behind him and the Mercedes pair further down the top ten.
