Sauber have consolidated their sixth-place position but Sahara Force India have not given up hope and feel they can still beat the Swiss team in the constructors’ championship of Formula One. Force India (63) trail Sauber (100) by 37 points but team principal Vijay Mallya has not lost hopes of retaining their sixth place.

“There have been various moments where they’ve drawn away and we seemingly can’t catch them,but all it takes is a podium finish that brings in a lot of points,and if we get a couple of them,we could still chase them down,” Mallya said as his team prepares for Sunday’s Singapore Grand Prix. Force India lead Williams by just nine points but Mallya said,”Two years ago Williams got us by one point in Brazil,so every point does matter.”

Nico Hulkenberg said racing on a street circuit under lights would be challenging in Singapore. “For me Singapore is the toughest race of the year — physically and mentally. I think it’s because there are 23 corners on the track and it’s one of the longest races of the year — always close to the two hour limit. So you certainly feel it after the race because of the high temperatures and humidity,” he said.
