Need to qualify better in Singapore: Sutil

Sep 17 2013, 9:54am CDT | by IANS

Singapore, Sep 17 (IANS) Force India driver Adrian Sutil said Tuesday that they need to qualify well at the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix to be held Sunday to have a better chance of bagging points.

Singapore, Sep 17 — Force India driver Adrian Sutil said Tuesday that they need to qualify well at the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix to be held Sunday to have a better chance of bagging points.

"We've got to qualify well to give ourselves the best chance of scoring points. We are still close to McLaren in the championship and we need to make sure we keep a healthy margin ahead of Toro Rosso and Sauber," said Sutil, who will race in his fifth Singapore GP.

Not his favourite hunting ground, but the German has begun to like the Marina Bay Street Circuit over the years.

"It's not my favourite track but it's one of those places that I've come to like more and more. There are some nice sections and it's quite wide for a street circuit, which helps with overtaking. I always enjoy street races and the city is amazing. The atmosphere means it's definitely one of the best races of the year," added the 30-year-old, who finished eighth the last time he raced here in 2011.

Sutil's teammate Paul di Resta had a fantastic outing last year when he finished fourth. However, the Briton believes it is going to be tough to repeat that performance.

"Given our form lately it's difficult to know what to expect. We had a great result last year with fourth place. It would be great to try and repeat that but it's going to be tough given how competitive the grid is at the moment," the 27-year-old said.

"There's no doubt that the tyre change had an impact on things. Plus, a lot of the teams have caught up with us for whatever reason, whether it's updates or the nature of the tracks. All we can do is keep working away to try and find some more performance," added the Scot.

Si le circuit de Marina Bay ne sollicite pas particulièrement les moteurs, nombre d’écuries ont cependant remplacé divers composants des propulseurs à la veille du Grand Prix de Singapour. Chez Ferrari, alors qu’on avait déjà à remplacer le V6 thermique sur les bolides de Fernando Alonso et Kimi Räikkönen, plusieurs changements ont eu lieu. L’Espagnol, qui avait abandonné à Monza sur panne d’ERS, a reçu un cinquième V6, u ...

2014 Belgian Grand Prix Fastest Lap Shows New-Generation F1 Cars Getting Quicker

They came close in Bahrain. Lewis Hamilton or Nico Rosberg might have done it in Canada, but for Mercedes reliability issues. Then, it finally happened last weekend in Belgium—the fastest race lap, set by Rosberg, was quicker than the fastest lap at the 2013 Belgian Grand Prix. At the beginning of the season, all the talk was about how quiet and efficient the new Formula One power units were. Lost among the lack-of-noise complaint ...

Kimi Räikkönen, vainqueur à quatre reprises sur le toboggan des Ardennes, partage l’opinion d’Adrian Sutil et pense que l’Eau Rouge pourrait ne plus se prendre pied au plancher cette saison. "Spa est probablement mon circuit favori du calendrier car c’est un tracé à l’ancienne qui est constitué de montées et de descentes en plein milieu de la forêt et j’aime le fait qu’il soit rapide et fluide", indique Iceman. "Je pense que cela reste un circuit ...

Sutil : "Je passe la moitié de mon temps sur ma Playstation !"

Adrian Sutil regrette qu’il n’y ait pas davantage d’essais privés dans le courant de la saison afin de permettre aux pilotes, surtout les plus jeunes, de progresser. Cette année, pour la première fois depuis fin 2008, la F1 a assoupli le bannissement des essais en cours de saison, avec la tenue de quatre fois deux journées de tests. Mais pour des raisons budgétaires, cet assouplissement sera réduit de moitié l’an prochain. "Nous passons plus de temps dans le simulateur. Enf ...
