Singapore night Grand PrixFollowing his arrival in Singapore, a couple of days ahead of the inaugural 2008 Singapore Grand Prix to be hosted at night under artificial lighting, Ferrari’s Team Principal Stefano Domenicali, has reminded to Massa and Raikkonen that the Scuderia’s target, as usual, is to win both the Drivers’ and Constructors’ championships. “The fight for the two titles will be very close and, at the Maranello launch of the new California road car, Kimi and Felipe met President Montezemolo, who made it very clear that, as usual Ferrari’s simple target come the end of the season is to win both titles. Both drivers will be working towards this target over the remaining four races, knowing that, as always for the Scuderia, the good of the team comes first,” said Domenicali.

“We come to Singapore on the back of a profitable three day test which saw us make progress with the F2008 package that should ensure we are competitive at the highest level over the remaining four races,” he added.

Last week, both Ferrari’s drivers went to the Fiat Research Centre in Turin to experience the new Singapore circuit on the simulator. However, whereas for Valencia, the other new venue on this year’s calendar, there was some reference points, as other race series had run prior to the Grand Prix, in the case of Singapore there is only theoretical data to work with.

First impressions were of a street circuit that lies somewhere between Valencia and Monaco in terms of speed, while the track is much wider and indeed longer than the famous Principality track.
