“It’s not the standard that it should be, but there’s not much we can do now,” Webber said. “We know it [the bump] is there, but it’s pretty special. I’m sure they’ll improve it if we ever come back here again.”

Following the last race at Singapore, Webber received a 10-place grid drop penalty for Singapore dramatic taxi driving.

“The balance is not great,” he said. “It’s more about understanding the tyres again. That’s the biggest thing and it’s about getting them working.”
