Sergey Sirotkin admits that this weekend’s race around the Marina Bay Street Circuit is one of the races he has been looking forward to the most during his rookie campaign.

The Williams Martini Racing driver will head to Singapore on the back of his maiden top ten finish in Formula 1 after taking tenth place in the Italian Grand Prix, although that is subject to an appeal from the Haas F1 Team after Romain Grosjean was disqualified from sixth place for an illegal floor.

Sirotkin says he has been enjoying the races in Europe but he is looking forward to racing again in Asia and finding out about new tracks, starting with Marina Bay this weekend, with the Russian hoping the circuit offers the team an opportunity to score what would only be their fourth top ten finish of the season.

“Singapore is one of the races I’m looking forward to the most,” said Sirotkin.  “It’s been really nice to race at some well-known European tracks, but I also feel like now is a good time to start doing some flyaway races again, and to see some new tracks.

“Singapore is somewhere everyone wants to race at. It’s a very challenging track which could potentially give us a lot of hopes, so I’m looking forward to it a lot. I’ve been there before but there’s not much I can say until I drive the track.

“It’s a special weekend with it being a night race, and the schedule being on European time.”
