2006 330i  [4.67]
2013 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix

Now all the European races concluded. We're back on flyaway series.
First stop - Singapore in the dark.

Seems that Red Bull is sailing away with their fourth consecutive championship. But not without some worries. In Monza we saw some gear box issues to nurse, and that same gearbox will have to race in Singapore. Which is the slowest race of the season with the most corners, and also number of gear changes.

Then the track itself. Turn 10 has been said to change to a medium speed corner instead of the triple chicane we used to since 2008. This should help the flow of the track and improve the track time.
http://www.formula1.com/news/headlin...3/9/14975.html

Also this season we will also two DRS zones, one at the straight between turn 5 and 7, and the other located at the pit straight.

Tyre wise, we will have a gap between the prime and option compound. Supersoft and Medium. This should be interesting with the strategy and in lap times. By the way, we've never had a race in night time with rain. Will we see it this weekend?

While everyone still lives in European time, which team will triumph on this humid track?

The only concern I have for RBR is their gear box now. They will use the same one that had problems in Monza. Which they can only do certain repairs but not overhaul without taking a grid penalty.

Hamilton is saying he will do very well at a high downforce track like this upcoming one.

It almost seems as though most teams have ceded drivers/constructors to RBR at this point and are just focusing on their '14 cars..

Fingers crossed for a Seb "Ka-blammo" and a Kimi win...

It means that instead of finishing P8 because "for sure, I was helping the team", he'll be finishing P8 because that's all he's capable of.

I like Massa, but after he got whacked by that heave spring, he's never been the same.

It also means that if he keeps talking shit he will be dropped for remainder of season. He was lucky to be there so long. Ungrateful...

Or no one will remember he ever existed if he didn't "talk".
