  • Australian F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo arrives at the paddock ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix

'Nevertheless we learned a lot from our struggles in Monaco, raised our level of performance significantly in Hungary and we have made good progress in understanding what we need to do in order to get the most from the chassis'. "Whatever happens along the way happens".

"I am going there with a positive approach expecting to fight for the win, but if we can't, we take it at face value and damage limitation".

According to Wolff, the Singapore Grand Prix is tough on the whole team, whether that be handling the heat, the strategy calls, or the physical and mental demands of driving the auto, everyone has to be on song, for the weekend to be a success.

"It is a circuit that we have found hard to master", he said.

Unlike the flat-out blasts of Italy's Monza, which were tailor-made for Mercedes, the tight twists of the Singapore track, which has the most corners of any circuit on the calendar, should play to Ferrari's strengths. Hamilton has six wins, Vettel four How does Jack Nicholls prepare for the Singapore GP?

Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo of Australia snacks in his team garage between laps during the second practice session at the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix on the Marina Bay City Circuit Singapore, Friday, Sept. 15, 2017.

But Singapore is probably the track that most closely fits that bill, even if the headline results in that period aren't almost as bad as you might expect.

"We have worked as hard as we can to understand the vehicle and we come here with a full attack". But the reigning champions endured an uncharacteristically off-colour weekend in 2015, when Vettel won for Ferrari instead.

McLaren have endured a miserable year, and are last but one in the constructors' championship.

Daniel Ricciardo was the man who went fastest in Singapore in both of the Friday sessions.

The British team have run out of patience with the Japanese manufacturer following three years plagued by an under-performing and unreliable engine, and are poised to be powered by Renault next term.

Kimi Räikkönen was seventh, while Fernando Alonso was eighth; when informed of his time, Alonso replied: "For info, we could be P1", with an announcement on McLaren's 2018 engine deal due imminently.

Sainz's heavily-mooted move from Toro Rosso to Renault would see him replace Englishman Jolyon Palmer, with reports indicating that the switch could be triggered in time for the Malaysian Grand Prix. Speaking to reporters on Thursday before confirmation of the split, though, the Spaniard remained tight-lipped on his future.

"Do I want to win with them?"

"In theory it should be a bit better here than Monza but I think it will be close", Vettel told reporters.

"I understand that Mercedes keeps its options open", Bottas said in Singapore. "We will be potentially be stronger than Ferrari and Mercedes, but I am confident that we can stay there".
