Ocon expects “difficult” Singapore GP

Esteban Ocon believes that this year’s Singapore GP will be one of the most challenging races for the new generation of F1 cars.

Formula 1 will race in Singapore for the first time since 2019 as the 2020 and 2021 events did not take place because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The race at the Marina Bay Street Circuit is considered one of the toughest physically on the calendar because of the high humidity and heat.

Ocon believes that the bumps and curbs will make the race challenging for the 2022 F1 cars.

When asked what kind of a weekend he is expecting, Ocon replied: “Difficult.

“It’s going to be very bumpy. A big challenge for us, very physical. I love Singapore, but the track itself is not my favorite, I have to say.

“[The cars] are [like] go-karts on curbs, so it’s going to be a tricky one.

“I think Canada was pretty bad, but [Singapore] probably will be one of the worst [for the 2022 cars].

“It’s not going to be fun, but we’re up for the challenge.

“It’s going to be interesting to see who chooses what in terms of set-up, if you go for the car that rides well, or if you go for the car that needs grip. It’s a trade-off.”
