Aside from the data experiment, which is aimed at enhancing the human ability to make better decisions, aerodynamic designs and the relationship between software efficiency and a car's cooling systems are some of F1's other technological advancements, Rhodes said.

A fortnight on from Lewis Hamilton's dominant win at the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, the Briton will look to maintain his slender points advantage in the Drivers' Championship, as the Formula 1 circuit rolls into Singapore for the first of three races in Asia.

"The first ever night race in this sport is one of the most thrilling events of the year, taking place against the stunning backdrop of Marina Bay".

A downpour hit the track just four hours before the F1 race, delaying the start of the Porsche Supercup support race because track conditions were so bad.

Nether-the-less, Vandoorne is hoping the safety vehicle, which has made an appearance in all of the previous nine Singapore Grand Prix, can aid their chances of advancing their positions, but he feels the team can secure what would only be their second two-car points finish of 2017.

The on-off engine saga between McLaren and Honda has come to an end, with the Woking-based team officially announcing a new deal with Renault.

Speaking to Formula1.com, chairman and CEO Chase Carey said he was pleased with the final outcome. "We have so far not got a chance to engage in depth yet, it has only been a little over half a year since the complete change in ownership", said Carey in response to a PTI query.

Carlos Sainz will join Renault next season on a loan deal from Red Bull. Sainz, who has driven for Toro Rosso for three years, will replace Jolyon Palmer as Nico Hulkenberg's team-mate at Renault. "We head to Asia with the expectation that we have a big challenge ahead of us".

F1 drivers have been issued a warning about "heat shock" at this weekend's Singapore GP.

"We have interest from many countries around the world for races in the future".

When asked if it would be possible to race at night in the rain, the Haas driver said: "I've got no idea - and that is the concern I've always had with this race. The key is to drink throughout the race, even though it isn't easy". "He and Lewis were the fastest I raced against".
