F1: Kimi Raikkonen likes ''not getting up early'' for the Singapore Grand Prix

By ,

Kimi Raikkonen, the 33-year-old world champion form Finland, is currently fourth in the championship standings, and coming off two consecutive finishes outside the points.

The return to a high downforce track at the Singapore Grand Prix should help him score a good result.

"After these two weekends with zero points it’s nice to get back to a circuit we expect to be more suited to our car," he is quoted saying on Formula1.com.

But the layout of the Singapore street circuit is not the only reason why Raikkonen is looking forward to next weekend. Indeed, racing in Singapore also means racing at night, and not getting up so early, which is a good point for the inimitable Finn who likes to speak his mind.

"I really like going to Singapore. It’s a great place to be, I love the local food, and I don’t mind the unusual times we run in the car as it means I don’t have to get up so early. "
