Marussia seeking to build on Monaco result

Marussia team principal John Booth says that the squad's ninth-place finish in May's Monaco Grand Prix is their inspiration ahead of this weekend's Singapore Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton says he is hopeful of reversing his fortune at next weekend's Singapore Grand Prix.

Wolff: Radio rule needs clarification

Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff says that the FIA's decision to clamp down on radio messages between drivers and the pit wall needs clarification ahead of next weekend's Singapore Grand Prix.

The rule change has been implemented through strict enforcement of Article 20.1 of the 2014 sporting regulations, which states that a driver must act 'alone and unaided.' […]

But the outfit is optimistic that the Marina Bay circuit will suit the C33, which will feature an aerodynamic update package, a new engine cover and a modified front wing. "In terms of track layout, I think the […]
