(PRWEB UK) 14 September 2013
The Marina Bay Street Circuit like Monaco and Valencia, is one of the handful of harbourside tracks to feature in the Formula 1 Grand Prix season. The circuit is a modification of a proposal by the famous Grand Prix circuit architect, Herman Tilke and was famously stated to be twice as difficult as Monaco by Lewis Hamilton. Lewis will be going into the Grand Prix needing to qualify well as street circuits are notoriously difficult to overtake safely on. Whilst having a blip at Monza in his qualification, Hamilton has been the king of qualification this season and certainly needs to return to form.
Hamilton said: "It was a very difficult weekend. Ninth. I should have been much further ahead and I am very disappointed with myself. I blew it in qualifying and it was impossible to make up the places.
"Overall, it has been a nightmare, a disaster of a weekend.
"Of course, I will keep on pushing and give it my best and try to win some races and take some points here and there but in that car he (Vettel) is so fast."
DSG are looking at providing unparalleled coverage of this crucial Grand Prix with in-depth analysis, stats and video interviews and analysis of all the action from testing, qualification and race-day.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say, “Vettel has been in the habbit of winning and its difficult to see any car competing with the Red Bull, it’s literally streets ahead. Where the season is very interesting is in the chasing pack of Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen. All eyes will probably be on Kimi Raikkonen who goes into the race knowing that he will be partnering Fernando Alonso at Ferrari next season and taking the place of Massa. Raikkonen himself made way at Ferrari for Fernando Alonso and you have to wonder where that leaves both Lotus and Massa? Hamilton could certainly do with another Pole and another win and Motosport.co.uk will be there to follow the Grand Prix and ask questions.”
Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG says that motorsport will not be short content, “We will be putting the fan into the action of the circuit with news, stats, features interviews and video on motorsport.co.uk.”
