Looking ahead to tomorrow, Vettel thinks it’ll be interesting to see how teams cope with the length of the race and how it affects tyre management, with the Singapore GP set to hit two hours in length.
“It will certainly feel different tomorrow than it did today,” he added.
“Overall, it should be a good race, so lets see what the tyres will do - if we can push for the full two hours or have to manage.”
