The McLaren team is currently in 2nd place for Constructors’ Championships, whether will they overtake Red Bull-Renault and win the championship remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, Alonso is determined to “put out a perfect display right to the end” for Singapore, putting the Ferrari team in a good contending position to overtake McLaren’s 2nd placing in the Constructors’ Championships. The Spaniard who has currently been conservative in the past few races vows to drive more offensively and extend his lead over Hamilton and Raikkonen. On top of that, the sheer combined challenge of a night AND street circuit makes the Singapore leg of the F1 World Championships an exciting race that simply cannot be missed.
