Excitement builds for Lewis
Championship leader expecting exciting times in Singapore

Lewis Hamilton expects an exciting race as Formula One goes under lights for the first time in Singapore - and he insists he will be going all-out for the win as the title race really starts to hot up.

23-year-old Hamilton is facing another tense title battle in just his second season in Formula One, as the McLaren man leads the way by just a single point heading to Singapore.

History will be made with the first Grand Prix to be staged at night in Singapore and Hamilton expects it to be an exciting occasion.

"I think the race will be very exciting," he said. "I think it could be even more exciting than some of the others we have had.

"As a night race everyone is in the unknown and don't know what to expect."

Hamilton has spent hours in the simulator trying to get accustomed to the new street circuit, but he admits nothing can prepare him for tackling it for the first time proper.

The Stevenage-born driver says he will have to learn as he goes when he makes his way out onto the track for the first time.

"We have spent time in the simulator which is about as accurate as it can be as it gives us a good idea of the circuit," added Hamilton.

"Learning a new circuit is always tough. Simulations can give you an indication of where the first corner is but otherwise you have to learn it when you race.

"The team have done a lot of analysis and we are trying to find out as much as we can.

"But really when we get out on the track it will be a completely new experience."


Hamilton came in seventh in Monza in the driving rain last time out, and he admits that the Italian GP was the first time he started to feel the nerves.

"The last race was probably the first time I have ever felt any kind of nerves," he said.

"Going down the straight at the beginning of the race I couldn't see a thing because of the rain.

"But generally I find it is just exciting. You are always calculating things, where the car needs to be, where I am going to be breaking, how much I break.

"I never approach a race saying I am aiming for fourth place. I always plan to win as scoring points is what is important.
