Singapore a real test, says Senna
19 September 2011 – Bruno Senna is aware of the challenge this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix will present, with a particularly long race distance and humid conditions just two of the confrontations added to the fact that the race is staged until lights from 8pm.
“Singapore will be a real test,” says the Renault driver, who scored for the first time in Italy. “It’s a fairly recent addition to the calendar in F1 terms and it will be quite a novelty for me. It will be quite demanding to extract everything I can from the car, but I am enthusiastic about what awaits and hope I can reward the team with more points.
“I will approach the weekend in a similar vein to Monza by completing as many laps as possible in the practice sessions, which will hopefully help me reach Q3 in qualifying.
“As with the Malaysian Grand Prix, Singapore requires you to arrive at the track a little earlier to help acclimatise. Having said that, the team will also remain on their British Summer Time body clocks because of the weekend’s timetable! I’m looking forward to a fun and different type of race weekend.”
