Team and drivers review the first day of the 2013 Singapore Grand Prix weekend at Marina Bay Circuit, Round 13 of the 2013 Formula 1 World Championship.

Sebastian Vettel:

  • First Practice Session: Position: 3, Best Time: 1:47.885, Laps: 19
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 1, Best Time: 1:44.249, Laps: 34

“It was quite busy; it’s pretty hot out there, good fun and a nice place, but for all of us it’s quite hard work. The time we set was a surprise today, I got a good lap in, but I don’t think it’s completely representative. We seem to be quick, but I think Mercedes will be very strong in qualifying tomorrow. I think Turn 10 is the best solution we have with the space that’s available.”

Mark Webber:

  • First Practice Session: Position: 2, Best Time: 1:47.420, Laps: 20
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 2, Best Time: 1:44.853, Laps: 30

“We got most of the work done today that we planned to. It’s an easy venue to not get what you want, but in the end I think we’ve got a reasonable set-up. We’ve got work to do on the long run and also on the short run, you can’t neglect that. We won’t count our chickens yet, but it was a smooth day. Turn 10 is better now I think.” (Red Bull F1)
