Describe your first full Singapore GP?
Bruno Senna: It was a tough race. My first lap was very good, but we then suffered from some very high tyre degradation. I was pushing hard to complete good lap times but we had to adjust the brake balance a lot to try and compensate for the rear tyre wear. When we put the soft tyres on they didn’t have quite the same bite as the super softs. Then, when I came into the hairpin which is the slowest corner of the track, my wheels locked up and I hit the wall. This made my race very, very complicated firstly because of the time lost there and secondly because of the extra pit stop.
Did you come off the track feeling disappointed?
BS: Well, it could have been a much better race for us, but we did what we could and we will now start to think about Japan, where hopefully we can bring out more of the potential of the R31.
Looking to Japan – the R31 and the Suzuka track are more natural bedfellows than the the R31 and Singapore…
BS: Yes, they should be. Suzuka is a faster track than Singapore. We’ve said on numerous occasions over the past few days that it looked like Singapore was going to do similar damage to us as Monaco and Hungary. Suzuka, on the other hand, should suit us better. It’s one of my favourite tracks so I’m looking forward to it.
