Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg has vowed to attack the final seven races of the 2015 season as he has 'nothing to lose' in the championship run-in.
Rosberg retired from the Italian Grand Prix due to an engine failure and consequently slipped 53 points behind team-mate Lewis Hamilton.
Rosberg was unable to start last year's race in Singapore following a mechanical gremlin and the German driver is hopeful that he can have a clean run under the lights at Marina Bay this weekend.
"It was gutting to miss out on a good result so close to the end but now I approach the final seven races with the attitude that there's nothing to lose," he said.
"It's maximum attack and I won't be giving up the fight, no way. Singapore is one of my favourite races, so that's a good place to start.
"It's so tough on everyone - physically and mentally - and I love that challenge. I was only a few thousandths off pole last year and feeling good for the race until a problem with the steering wheel ended my weekend.
"I know I've got the pace to win there, so I'm hoping for a clean weekend."
