"Singapore really is an entirely different kettle of fish"

Kimi Räikkönen feels he still has something to prove at the flood-lit Marina Bay Circuit in Singapore and after a strong run to fifth place in Monza, the Flying Finn moved into third position in the Drivers’ Championship, just one point off second spot.

The final two European races of the season have been tough going for Lotus F1 Team, with one car exiting the Belgian Grand Prix in an incident which left Romain Grosjean banned for the subsequent race in Italy; a race where the team weren’t able to display the pace they hitherto have done so this season.  Spa may not have delivered the performance that the team wanted, and the characteristics of Monza may have made it unlikely for Lotus F1 Team to be seen fighting at the front, but Singapore is rather different and should play back into the hands of the E20.

After a weekend on the sidelines in Italy, Romain is back in the hot seat for the Singapore Grand Prix and keen to put his learning experience from Monza into practice.
