Massa: Overtaking will be difficult at Singapore track

Ferrari driver Felipe Massa believes that qualifying will be critical to this weekend’s racing as he does not believe the Singapore track is conducive to overtaking.

“Saturday will be very important, for sure,” he told the Straits Times. “I’ve never driven on the Singapore track but it will be even more difficult to overtake compared to Valencia because the straights are even shorter.”

Red Bull’s David Coulthard concurs with Massa. “It appears to be less flowing than Valencia and more of a classic street track with lots of 90 degree block changes, albeit a relatively wide one in most parts.”
