Last quote about Singapore

Martina Hingis
Personally and professionally, but I believe the time has come for me to retire. Looking back now, it's hard to believe that almost exactly 23 years ago I made my professional debut. The years that followed have been some of the most rewarding years of my life, both personally and professionally, but I believe the time has come for me to retire, which I will be doing after my last match here in Singapore. Tennis has always been my passion and I am extremely thankful for all the challenges, opportunities, partnerships and friendships it's given me.feedback

“My thought process is that I'm really happy with my performance, personally my performance and how I executed the race I feel really happy with it. There are definitely positives in terms of the results we got, but if those guys hadn't taken each other [in Singapore] out I think we could have still won the race because we had good pace in the wet with the characteristics of our car.” said Lewis Hamilton speaking about Singapore.

All quotes about Singapore

Lee Hsien Loong

We are hoping to sign an agreement between SIA and Boeing to buy new airplanes. I think that's a done deal.feedback

Lee Hsien Loong

You have here to deal in a very tangible and concrete way with individual industries, individual firms, and not just in a stratospheric, macro, philosophical approach. You need to have a specific sense for each industry - what are the skills which are needed, what are the market areas which can be exploited, what are the changes which the companies need to make, how can we help the companies to achieve these changes. We miss him, we think of him often, we read his old speeches and we say, Well, that is still relevant to us today. The way he puts it still has a ring to it.feedback

Lee Hsien Loong

Well, it's never easy to be a small country next to a big neighbor. If you have one big neighbor only, that's not easy to manage. If you have two big neighbors, well in some ways you have more friends, but in other ways you have to make more difficult choices.feedback

Lee Hsien Loong

If there are tensions between America and China, we will be asked to pick a side. It may not be directly, but you will get the message that: 'We would like you to be with us, and are you with us? If not, does that mean you're against us?' And that's to put it gently.feedback

Lee Hsien Loong

No government prospers by saying, I don't need to do anything. Just by being there, we have made the country thrive.' You have to have an idea of what you need to do, what needs to be fixed, what can be improved, what we should now imagine together which we didn't previously imagine. And having thought of it, decide to go it. And that's the government's role.feedback

Lee Hsien Loong

Well if you asked a Singaporean, on the one hand they'll say, Let us do our own things.' On the other hand, when an issue comes out, they'll ask, What is the government doing about it?' And they have very high expectations of what the government should be doing, which is right because they've voted for the government and they expect the government to be able to perform. So we have to keep that balance.feedback

Caroline Garcia

So much happened this season. I went through basically all the different states of mind, all the different emotions. The beginning of the season was really complicated because I had some real back problems and that really damaged my confidence in my body and my game.feedback

Kristina Mladenovic

She didn't have the courage to even to tell me to my face.feedback

Chris Evert

I always felt like Caroline would be a late bloomer because she has an all-court game. But I always saw fear in her eyes. Mentally she didn't deal with pressure I think as well as the other players, and when I would watch her play, I would wonder about her shot selection.feedback

Caroline Garcia

LOL. I'm not going to Singapore to celebrate. I'm going to try to keep playing the way I've been playing the last few weeks.feedback

Caroline Garcia

Look, we don't want to prove anything to anyone or cry from the rooftops that we were right. But we thought it was the right decision. We just didn't know if it was going to work short-term to this degree.feedback

Caroline Garcia

No backhand down the line, no Singapore. It's true that in tennis sometimes the margins are very thin.feedback

Brian Schatz

Judge Watson's ruling makes clear that we are a nation of laws, no matter what this administration may try to do. There is a place here for peaceful immigrants from every corner of the world: Spain, Syria, Sudan, or Singapore. There is no place here for discrimination or xenophobia.feedback

Toto Wolff - Mercedes

We had this situation internally in the team and you can say that it's easier to manage because the team knew it was going to win but you've got to remember when Nico broke down in Singapore [in 2014] that meant the end of the championship or was a big blow to his chances in so far that we can relate to it.feedback

Luke Whearty

The idea of closed loop for me is an ingredient that doesn't just have a beginning and an end. If one element of an ingredient is used for a drink, we'll use a different element for something else, kind of like how a chef works with prime cuts and uses secondary cuts for another dish.feedback

Abdul Gafoor - RSM Chio Lim

We are still in the process of evaluating claims against the company and by the company, and cannot comment further.feedback

Luke Whearty

We're essentially closing the loop in terms of waste ... I'm a big believer that if you can make a small difference, you should. It's quite a defeatist attitude to say the problem is too big. Sometimes, a humble vegetable is just as flavorsome and can be as extravagant as imported luxury items.feedback

Hock Chua

In addition to our current offices, we will expand our presence to other SEA cities in the near future to better access local opportunities.feedback

Jolyon Palmer

The Japanese Grand Prix will be my last race for Renault. It's been an extremely challenging season and I've been through a lot in the last three years, but it's been a tremendous journey overall with the team. I can look back proudly at the performance in the second half of last season, my first point in Malaysia and of course reaching a career high of sixth place in Singapore this year. I wish the team all the best for the future. My immediate focus is now on achieving the best possible result in the Japanese GP, and then I can assess my options for the future.feedback

Mattia Binotto - Ferrari

Qualifying is the best way to understand that and we had the pole position in Singapore but not on pole in Malaysia. So I think there has been good progress this season. Battling for pole or being on pole was harder for us at the start of the season compared to today so overall our package has improved but it is never enough. Being fast is not sufficient, what counts is winning the race.feedback

Philip Malone

For a tour like this you look at a range of options and we decided to go with Singapore and Malaysia. These visits are planned over a number of months, preparations are made and you get to the point, working with Scott and his team here, where we decide on the ones that we will pursue for the visit.feedback

Scott Furssedonn-Wood

Their royal highnesses are delighted to be returning to India, and to be visiting Singapore and Malaysia for the first time together.feedback

Philip Malone

We looked at a range of options in the region and, as we're announcing today, we're going ahead with the visit to Singapore and Malaysia.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

My thought process is that I'm really happy with my performance, personally my performance and how I executed the race I feel really happy with it. There are definitely positives in terms of the results we got, but if those guys hadn't taken each other [in Singapore] out I think we could have still won the race because we had good pace in the wet with the characteristics of our car.feedback

Michael S. Barr

It seems to be highly likely that if one could examine the Singapore health system from the inside, one would find a fairly ordinary health system with some strong points and many weaknesses – much like health systems all over the developed world.feedback

Yusuke Hasegawa - Honda

The Malaysian Grand Prix proved to be another positive result for the team. Stoffel maintained his momentum from Singapore and brought home more precious points, and the result was even more impressive when you consider that this is a tough, power-hungry circuit. I think today we were able to prove the progress of both our car and power unit.feedback

Caroline Wozniacki

I have such great memories of the tournament, especially from 2010, and I can't wait to get to back to Singapore and play my best tennis in front of the amazing fans there.feedback

Pierre Poignant - Lazada

One of the reasons why we acquired RedMart is that groceries is a very specific set of skills that you need to develop. We have the ambition to develop this category across the region.feedback

Pierre Poignant - Lazada

When it comes to logistics we are developing a distinct competitive advantage. We are the only ones to have this open network approach -- combining our own infrastructure and partners. Setting up a logistics network is a complex, long process.feedback

Pierre Poignant - Lazada

Logistics in Southeast Asia is going to look very different from the rest of the world. It is hard to believe one player can do everything. The distance from Aceh to Papua (in Indonesia) is bigger than the distance from Miami to Seattle. People don't realise.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

The way Singapore happened you can look at it again and again; it doesn't matter. We have to go here, and that's the good thing about racing, the part that I enjoy. That's what you fight for, you fight for every centimetre, every tenth that you can find somewhere, over a lot of laps in the race or over one lap in qualifying, to make the difference. I'm sure that, as a team, we can make that difference.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I don't know. I've not really reflected too much on the last race. It was obviously an unusual one and I did go into that race that morning knowing about the difficulty of overtaking at that circuit but then knowing that things do happen at that race.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

He's a four-time world champion, so it's difficult to really know how he's going to react. Firstly, I don't know how he's taken it, the mistake at the last race, and I don't know how he has reflected on it, but greats generally bounce back so I have to anticipate that this weekend he will bounce back strong. I don't remember the last time he faltered under pressure, so I don't know how he will react and if he feels pressure. Time will tell.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I was really thinking that I would come out of that race having lost a good chunk of 10 or 15 points to Sebastian, so for it then to come out the other way round was a real surprise. But again, I've not really thought about it. My state of mind is exactly the same as it was going into it and I just have to make sure I perform as I have been until the job is done.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

Of course it is part of a turning point in the season when you all of a suddenly go from being behind all season long to being in the lead of the championship. But there are lots of turning points within a year and I'm trying to make sure that is the last one.feedback

Fernando Alonso

Yeah definitely it was another frustrating time. Sometimes we are slow and we are uncompetitive and we can't do anything like Spa and Monza.feedback

Fernando Alonso

That podium could have been one of the biggest things of my career and we missed it. Then we wait for these couple of circuits that we know that we are competitive, plus we had the rain, plus we were second or third in that moment in the corner so I think a podium was guaranteed in Singapore and a podium would probably have been the biggest achievement of the last decade for me! So we missed that but I tend to think positively always and if that had to happen this year it's because destiny wanted that and is taking care of our luck for better opportunities.feedback

Fernando Alonso

Yes, still there! Frustration, because when I saw the replay and I saw Vettel spinning out of Turn 3, we were just behind Lewis [Hamilton] and we were with the right tyre at that moment so we could have even tried to overtake him when the moment arrived, and then probably we would lose one position or two position but no more because it's a street circuit and nobody will overtake you.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

Looking at it now there has been one race where we didn't finish, and certainly it didn't help that it was the one race where Lewis scored a lot of points, but that's the way it goes. Certainly all three of us would have loved to have a different race -- championship yes or no -- but first we want to race and that's what we set out to do in Singapore, unfortunately all three of us didn't get very far.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I don't think it's necessary to discuss. We will see, I have a lot of races left and I'm not too fussed about the amount of points. Obviously it's never good to be behind and we would like to be in front, but we are not so we have got to take it from there.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I don't think we do because we have a lot of races left, I think we have a strong car.feedback

Daniel Hannan

I'm looking at [the] high commissioner of Singapore [in the front row]. They have gone from being half as rich as us to twice as rich as us. What was the magic formula? Just do it. They dropped their barriers.feedback

Kim Kardashian

I just felt this energy… that's exactly what I want my perfume energy to be like. So the bottle is this gorgeous crystal that looks like a piece of art just sitting on your countertop, that matches with anyone's room.feedback

Kim Kardashian

It's been such a fun journey to figure out how our kids like to dress and how to make cool clothes for kids. We've always been tailoring things and cutting things up, or taking dresses of mine and cutting them down to North's size.feedback

Guenther Steiner

Singapore was one of the worst tracks for us, including Hungary. We knew we'd be weak on those tracks, and we were. We got away with two points, so we got away better than we expected to. Hopefully, at the other tracks, we won't be this far behind the midfield. In the midfield, anything and everything can happen. It's up and down all the time. Regardless, we'll work hard to achieve seventh.feedback

Guenther Steiner

We decided a long time ago that we would start focusing full-time on the 2018 car in August, and we started partially on our 2018 car in March. You have to plan it well because it's so complex, but everyone else is working on their 2018 car as well. If you were to develop something at this point for the current car and you put it into production, when it comes out it would be too late. If you develop something now, you won't get it to the racetrack for this year. We still want to achieve seventh, or the best result we can. We haven't given up.feedback

Yvonne Zhang

A lot of the shortfall in trade finance is from the Asia Pacific. There's no shortage of money here – but a lot of it is trapped within local currencies in the region.feedback

Yvonne Zhang

The smaller guys tend to get put into a corner ... yet they are overcharged for what financing they can get.feedback

Seamus Donoghue - Asian Development Bank

The plan is to work with people that want to build the markets that suit them, or we'll build them into our own marketplace.feedback

Eric Boullier

We will of course be pushing for Q3 on Saturday - as we have done over the past couple of races - but this circuit is unlikely to be as kind to us as Singapore in terms of outright lap-times. As ever, reliability will be key in these tough conditions, as points are only ever possible with a reliable car, as will avoiding any first-lap chaos, which is always easier said than done.feedback

Yusuke Hasegawa - Honda

Regarding Fernando's Singapore power unit, we were concerned that it may have been irreparably damaged, but fortunately after a thorough check back at the Sakura factory we can confirm it is okay to be re-used.feedback

Niki Lauda

If I'm leading in the world championship, I wouldn't take such a risk in the first turn. Especially not on a race or a circuit where I was starting as the favourite. This is my clear analysis.feedback

Niki Lauda

Lewis is driving at a very high performance level and you can't take this advantage away from him. My wish is that it stays like that and to be honest, I am convinced of that -- he makes no mistakes. Let me say it clearly, Lewis drove perfectly while Sebastian gave away valuable points.feedback

Niki Lauda

Officially, after the race, the stewards called it a racing incident. To be honest, that surprised me a little bit.feedback

Niki Lauda

The accident was triggered by Sebastian's movement to the left, of course you can call this a racing incident, but in this case it was Sebastian's fault.feedback

Niki Lauda

The stewards' statement was very detailed as to which driver or which car was at which point at which time -- who was half a metre in front or to the side or behind in comparison to the other cars. For me it was quite obvious that Sebastian went left after the start to defend from Max Verstappen who was driving in the middle, but at the same time he didn't seem to be aware that this was a very risky manoeuvre in front of an entire field of drivers. I think Sebastian should have anticipated that his teammate Kimi could be driving to the left of Verstappen.feedback

Jolyon Palmer

I've got a car that can score points and I am focused on doing the best job that I can. I would have loved it if the team had signed me for next year but with the way that the season has gone it is understandable that it has not happened. It has been a tough year all round. I want to go out with my head held high and prove I can do the job. At the end of the day the decision has been made so I've got six races to do what I can and I've got the kit to do the job.feedback

Lynette Leong

Market statistics have shown that Singapore's office market rents have reached a trough; hence, the acquisition will position CCT to benefit from the expected market uptick in Grade A office rents.feedback

Jeremy Lake - Cbre

(The deal) provides another pricing benchmark which reconfirms that the recovery in office rents and prices is well underway.feedback

Lynette Leong

Market statistics have shown that Singapore's office market rents have reached a trough, hence the acquisition will position CCT to benefit from the expected market uptick in Grade A office rents. Post-acquisition, CCT's portfolio value will increase from S$8.0 billion to S$10.1 billion. The contribution from Grade A buildings will significantly increase from S$4.9 billion to S$7.0 billion and augment the quality of our portfolio for long term growth.feedback

Jeremy Lake - Cbre

The deal provides another pricing benchmark which reconfirms that the recovery in office rents and prices is well underway in Singapore.feedback

Li Mingjiang

Their differences are manageable. Singapore and China have no territorial dispute, no maritime dispute. Singapore doesn't pose any threat to China's core national interest.feedback

Michael Descheneaux - Silicon Valley Bank

Start-up companies are full of amazing minds and (they are) developing their products, but as you can imagine, not everybody's equipped on governing a company.feedback

Michael Descheneaux - Silicon Valley Bank

A lot of the times, it's not just about the money. It's about networking, it's about the know-how, making connections, and making introductions and finding people for you.feedback

Han Verstraete

We are debating, as part of the community, ways of significantly improving the actual model. If you're going to offering securities through an ICO, do it perhaps in a number of successive capped rounds that are somehow linked or triggered by milestones that you commit to.feedback

Taavet Hinrikus - TransferWise

In addition to keeping a balance, which you can do in 27 currencies, you will also get local account numbers in U.S., in U.K., in Europe. You can do business like a local person while based in Singapore.feedback

Max Verstappen

Vettel is fighting for the championship, so you don't need to take so much risk if you know that Hamilton starts fifth. If this would have been with Hamilton then it would have been a completely different story. From his [Vettel's] side, I don't understand that something like this happens.feedback

Neil Golightly

If we assume Brazilian football's home is Rio, they have in recent years played friendlies (as the notional home team) against Argentina in Melbourne (13,221 km) and Japan in Singapore (15,743 km) but the furthest flung appears to be the 15 October 2013 game between Brazil and Zambia in Beijing, 17,343km from Rio. The furthest possible point on Earth from Rio is 20,020km away but since that's somewhere in the middle of the Philippine Sea it's unlikely the Seleção will be playing there any time soon.feedback

JP Lee - SoftBank

We used to cover only Korea, but now we look at every early-stage company all across the world. We have investment portfolio companies in Southeast Asia, we have dozens of them in Singapore, Indonesia, we have investments in the U.S. and also we cover Israel.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

I think we can be podium cars, probably Malaysia, Japan, Austin. But yeah, we might need some alternate conditions to really give us raw pace to fight for a win.feedback

Grace Sai - The Hub Singapore

What is lacking in Singapore is what we call the audacity of purpose. Having the next generation of entrepreneurs who think big enough and who are motivated to solve meaningful problems rather than just creating the next food delivery app.feedback

Toto Wolff - Mercedes

On a difficult day you would like Lewis in the car. Singapore was a good example of that, where there was more chance of making a mistake than driving it home.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

Coming here, I really felt the package we were coming with (a win) was a realistic goal of ours that we thought we could achieve. (I'm) A little bit disappointed to miss out on a win, but I've still got to be pretty grateful and happy with another podium. But yeah, we might need some alternate conditions to really give us raw pace to fight for a win.feedback

Niki Lauda

If he (Vettel) would not have moved (across) he could have won the race, there's no question about it.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

He unfortunately ended up retiring as the result of somebody else's accident.feedback

Stoffel Vandoorne

That was definitely an eventful race! To race under the rain at the beginning was definitely not easy, so my main focus was just to stay out of trouble, which we managed to do. From that point on, I just managed my own race. I think seventh place was really the best it was going to get for me today. Sixth was perhaps on the cards at one point, but it didn't work out at my second pit-stop. After that, i just focused on getting everything I could from the car and maximising the performance. Getting a couple of points means we finish our weekend on a high.feedback

Felipe Massa

They were saying that maybe the track would dry. I was at the back so it was my only chance in the race. In the end, I stayed out. I was so slow and my race was finished. I'm disappointed for my race but not for the team because Lance managed to score points. At the end, it could have been worse, looking at where we started the race, so not bad for the team but a disaster for me.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

Then in the first few laps I felt we were okay in the wet but then I felt we were a bit harsh on the tyres. Even when we pitted and had fresher tyres, we couldn't really make an impact on Lewis. The team was asking me to manage the gears through the race and after I learned we had a leak and were losing oil pressure in the gearbox from early on. Of course I came here to win and really wanted it, but second place is great and I'm not going to complain about it.feedback

Felipe Massa

I'm disappointed with my race. First of all, I started on the wrong tyres which was my decision, but I think in that moment you never know what is going to happen. Many cars decided the same as me, some others different, it was my mistake. Then I was nowhere on the track, I was very slow. When the safety car was out I asked to stop but the team decided to stay out.feedback

Bob Fernley

We made the most of an incident-filled race to score points with both cars. We started on the full wet tyres, which were the correct tyres for the early laps, but the rain eased off sooner than expected and the track came towards the cars on intermediates. We had to react quickly to the various safety car periods and the pit wall made the right calls to ensure we were always on the right tyres for the conditions.feedback

Fernando Alonso

At the end, we had some electrical problems and we had to stop. These things sometimes happen in motor racing and unfortunately it happened to us today. We had so much hope for this race, and in wet conditions we are very strong so the disappointment is even bigger. Despite my disappointment this evening, it's actually been a positive and fun weekend - the team has done an outstanding job and I'll be hoping for better luck in Sepang in a fortnight's time.feedback

Max Verstappen

The rear wheels are wider than the front so I was locked in the sandwich with no way out, even when I braked. If I made a mistake myself I would be upset or angry but there was nothing I could do today. We all lost out in the end so we all experienced some pain rather than someone making a mistake and then being able to carry on. We have to take the positives from the weekend, we were quick in qualifying and the practice sessions with good potential going into the race, we can hold onto this and move on to the next race.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I had an average start and then I moved slightly to the left trying to defend my position from Max. Then I got bumped on one side as Kimi's car hit me. I'm not sure what happened. I span at turn 3, but that's because the car was damaged already. Today we were on the wrong side of the track, which doesn't help. But there is nothing we can do now and for sure it is bitter, and it's a pity we couldn't show our pace today; but we have other races ahead of us and I am sure there will be more opportunities for us.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

The rain made it all pretty hectic today. Everyone was in the same boat though and we hadn't driven in the wet here before so it's all about switching on early, being aware of the situation and trying to adapt as quick as you can. My start was quite slow off the line. In hindsight probably a good thing, because it allowed the chaos to unfold in front of me.feedback

Paddy Lowe - Hamilton

After a poor qualifying it's great to come out of another race with some points on the board. It was looking like it would be an interesting race as soon as the rain came in. We have never had rain for the race in Singapore and it was remarkably persistent. Lance chose to start on the intermediate tyre in P18 with Felipe opting for the extreme wet in P17. Unfortunately, along with a few other drivers, the full wet turned out to be the wrong choice.feedback

Max Verstappen

My start was a little bit better than Seb and I think he saw that so he tried to move to the left to squeeze me out of the line a bit but he did not know Kimi was on my other side. I think it wasn't the smartest move and you can't make excuses for it when you are fighting for a world championship. Kimi had a great start and was alongside me very quickly, I didn't try and defend that as I knew it would be a long race, he then started to squeeze me also, at which point there wasn't a lot I could do.feedback

Paddy Lowe - Hamilton

We hoped to jump straight from the full wet to the dry tyre, which is why we tried to stay out longer in the first stint, but we missed that window by a few laps and he had to make an extra stop for intermediates, which really ruined his race. Nevertheless, it was a good drive from P17 to P11, to finish just outside the points. Congratulations to the team as well, to bring two cars home is a really important achievement in a race of such high attrition. Our reliability was good and we collected some valuable points in the Championship.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

At the start I had a very good jump, then I got hit; that was the end of our race. I don't think I could have really done anything differently to avoid it, apart from doing a bad start and not being there. It's a pity, one of those things you pay a big price for. Whatever the cause or the issue, it doesn't change the end result unfortunately. We go to the next races ready to fight and do our best.feedback

Bob Fernley

We lost out during the second safety car period, which cost both drivers track position -- Esteban more so than Sergio. From there both drivers recovered ground, but it wasn't easy to overtake. Sergio had a long battle with Sainz and Esteban was fighting with Magnussen and Grosjean. Considering where we started the race, to come away with eleven points is a very satisfactory end to the weekend.feedback

Christian Horner

It was enormously frustrating to lose Max at the start of the race, in an incident that quite clearly had nothing to do with him. Sebastian moving to the left, Kimi moving to the right sandwiched Max and there was nowhere for him to go. Then, after the re-start, Daniel started to lose an awful lot of gearbox oil, which created a lot of problems with oil pressure, and we were feeling that it was looking unlikely that Daniel would get to the end of the race.feedback

Christian Horner

However he managed to nurse the gearbox of the car incredibly well for three-quarters of the grand prix, and though able to hold off any threat from behind from Valtteri, unfortunately he could not attack Lewis ahead. So it has been another second place for us in Singapore, but a strong podium to take away considering how things were looking after the first 15 laps.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

What a day -- I can't believe it, I'm so happy! I came in today and I saw that I was raining and I knew that this balances everything out. I love racing in the rain, then everything unfolded in the beginning. Starting on the Intermediates I thought it was going to be much closer pace-wise. These conditions give you the opportunity to really make a difference with your driving. It was the first time for all of us driving here in the rain, so it was a massive challenge.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

I made a good start and I got hit and obviously there was nothing I could do after that. That was the end of the race so now we see what happens.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

The fact is we cannot change it that we're no longer in the race -- that's really the bad part. The painful part for us is that both our cars were out of the race after the first few hundred metres -- it's far from what we would have hoped for.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

It was one of those things and it was obviously bad for our race. Far from ideal, but it is what it is. You probably saw it better than me, but we got hit and taken out; that was the end of our race. The are always different views from the people watching it, but I don't know. All I know is that I couldn't have done anything differently to avoid it.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

Blame? Today the end result is the same whichever way you look at it. That's really the only thing that maters now and whatever comes after that it still doesn't make any difference.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

I got hit. I don't know about Max, you have to ask him. It was one of those things and you pay a big price for it. But I don't think I could have done anything different from what I did to avoid it. It's a shame but that's it. I had a good first 100 metres but then the race ended there. We're out and it's far from ideal. The fact is we cannot change it that we're no longer in the race -- that's really the bad part. The painful part for us is that both our cars were out of the race after the first few hundred metres -- it's far from what we would have hoped for.feedback

Fernando Alonso

Unfortunately this race we had a lot of hopes. These things sometimes happen in racing and unfortunately it happened to us today.feedback

Fernando Alonso

The car was amazing today at the start. We did an amazing launch and I was in front of Hamilton in Turn 1. After that we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was only Vettel, Kimi and Verstappen that hit me so arguably we could be in P1 now.feedback

Maurizio Arrivabene - Ferrari

That was very disappointing and it was definitely not the result we were expecting. But it doesn't mean that the battle is all over, just that it has become more difficult. We are very disappointed for our fans, but we will be back. We proved that we have an excellent car and two great drivers. All of us, those here in Singapore today and those working back in Maranello, we all have the Prancing Horse stamped on our hearts and we guarantee that we will be fighting right to the final corner of the very last Grand Prix of the year.feedback

Christian Horner

Anybody that tries to apportion any blame on Verstappen needs their eyes testing.feedback

Max Verstappen

I think mainly Sebastian. He started squeezing me. Maybe he didn't see Kimi on the left but that's not an excuse I think if you are fighting for the world championship, you shouldn't take those risks and really like squeeze someone that much. You can see what happens, Lewis is leading the race and the three of us are out. I tried to back out of it because I could see it coming but the rear tyres are wider than the front so I couldn't back out of it. Suspension damage. Into the first corner those things can happen because Kimi had only two tyres left.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I'm happy that we got the car where it deserved to be and then we'll take it from there. Tomorrow's a long race. These Red Bull guys are very, very quick. We had a difficult night yesterday, a better night today and I'm sure the car will be like today tomorrow, so it should be better but it will be a very close race.feedback

Valtteri Bottas

I think it's our yearly wake-up call. I actually think, and this might sound overly-optimistic and I'm not, that what we've seen today is the pace of the car around Singapore.feedback

Valtteri Bottas

That's been really the thing for me the whole weekend and the harder I tried the more I struggled. So I needed to control the slides and the wheel slips more than I would want to and the pace is just slow. And if I tried to push harder than it would get even worse, so it's been a little bit of a confusing weekend so far for me.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

It's something I have been moving towards. First I stopped eating red meat, then chicken. After seeing a few documentaries, I realised that the cruelty we show towards animals was something I didn't want to support. Plus, I want to lead a healthy life. A lot of friends I have met along the way say that they have gone vegan and that it is the best decision they ever made. When I see how some meat clogs up your arteries, there's no way I'm putting myself through it. I have had heart disease and cancer in my family and I don't want to go down the same route.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

We knew that today would be tough. We definitely didn't anticipate Ferrari would be as strong as they were. We thought Red Bull would be as quick as they were. I got everything I could out of the car, I gave it everything, everything and more. I squeezed every single bit out of it. I was holding on to the reins for dear life. I didn't think I'd be this far off. It's strange from race to race, it's a little bit different between us. But I hope that at the races coming up we'll be really strong.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I don't know where Ferrari has picked up that pace. It's strange, from race to race it's a little bit different between us. But the races coming up I think we'll be strong.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I don't know [where I found that time] and I struggled also this afternoon. I shouted as loud as them [the crowd] -- it was unbelievable. I'm still full of adrenaline so maybe whatever I say doesn't make any sense but I love this track. The car was tricky but it came alive and it got better and better as the night progressed, so really happy we got it done.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I tried a fast lap, I just didn't finish it. Today is not a problem, it's Friday and you are here to try -- it's free practice, so it's for free! Not ideal but overall I think important to get the feel for the car, that's more important. We're still not where we want to be so a lot of work ahead.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

Oh I don't know. Priority is to go as fast as we can and then we'll see where that takes us. It's not the first Friday they've been competitive so I don't know what they did. I'm sure it will be close tomorrow but how it will be exactly I don't know.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

Red Bull were rapid so we have just got to accept that they are super fast and I don't know if we'll be able to beat them in qualifying. We gave it everything we could and we're still not anywhere near Red Bulls they just seemed to be a little bit further ahead today. We're going to look at all of the options. Some fundamental things with our car may stop us from getting much quicker but we're going to push as hard as we can and do work overnight and see if we can improve the car.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I think we are relatively close to Ferrari so hopefully we can fight them which is a good thing.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

A dominant weekend is what I'm after. I want to continue like that for tomorrow and Sunday and I think we can. On these types of circuits we know we have a good chance, so I came here very committed and determined to do what we have done today. We will potentially be stronger than Ferrari and Mercedes [tomorrow and Sunday].feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

We made some progress from this morning, even if we were quickest. I was still wanting more from the car and we found another step.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I think we're relatively close to Ferrari, so that's how it is. We target to win races. But of course we want to make sure I'm ahead of Sebastian so that's my goal.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

It was not ideal, I didn't mean to go off. I was very lucky I could continue. It was a tricky session for us. The balance wasn't quite there. But I think it's in the car. We tried a couple of things. I'm not sure they are the right things to do. Now we see what we can do tomorrow. It's not the first Friday we've struggled. I'm pretty sure we'll be close tomorrow.feedback

S Iswaran

I'm very glad that all the parties concerned have been able to agree on commercial terms for an extension as Formula One and, I believe, Singapore have been good for each other. Over the past decade the Singapore race has introduced many innovative elements and become an iconic and highly anticipated event on the F1 calendar.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

We've come here now 10 times and I think it's like a real classic race already. It belongs in the calendar. It looks cool from the outside to see the cars at night, it's a cool race, it's a big city, so it's fun to drive.feedback

Calvin Harris

We are very pleased that it will continue to feature on the calendar for a further four years.feedback

Steve O'Neil

We've done several megawatts-scale installations. We have floating solar here in Singapore, in Thailand and Japan.feedback

Elena Chatzikonstantinou

The Singapore Grand Prix is one-of-a-kind and exciting. It might sound ideal to some to throw a Monaco-style F1 party with champagne and bikinis yacht-side, cheering with F1 cars on the background. Perfect shots for Instagram stories. However, I have been approached multiple times and called to examine the probability of holding the Code 20 events in Singapore, and every time I have decided that it is not a good idea.feedback

Elena Chatzikonstantinou

The teams in Singapore work until 3 or 4 in the morning, sometimes even until 5 or 6 a.m. Why party?feedback

Romain Grosjean

Every time we run maximum downforce, the car seems to work better. We've got a better efficiency between drag and downforce, so that's good. The key for us in Singapore will be to get into the tire window. If we do so, we'll be in a good place. But again, that's not easy to achieve.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

I believe we can win another [race]. We've certainly got stronger and stronger and I think at the high down force circuits this year we've been pretty good and getting better. At the last race, on the low down force circuit, we had really good pace on the Sunday which was a little surprising. So with that, and coming here with a few updates, we should be there.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

It doesn't seem like these sort of circuits, this year, is a strength of Mercedes. I think it can bring Ferrari and us right into that battle.feedback

Thibaut Courtois

Rudiger joined us in Singapore so he learned very well how the manager wants us to play. Bakayoko was injured for a while, but he trained with us for a while before he played his first game. But Zappacosta has only trained for a few days, he came in against Leicester [as a substitute] and did well. Then last night he played a good game and scored a brilliant goal and a good assist.feedback

Chase Carey - News Corporation

It's certainly a spectacular setting with the city lit up, racing through the streets, a race we are proud of. In many ways it's a race that anchors our Asian strategy. Still early days for us growing in Asia. But certainly a signature race for Asia, a signature race for us globally and it's great to be here.feedback

Zennon Kapron

The only way you can really stop bitcoin in China completely is if you shut down the internet. So the regulators are really focused on the points where bitcoin hits fiat currency. The current regulation that's being talked about is banning bitcoin exchanges, which would cut out a lot of the trade flows we're seeing in China right now and the exchanges around bitcoin. So we'll likely see them focused around those activities where there is an entity or person or some kind of connection to the traditional financial system that they can control.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

We already see elements of ISIS in the Philippines, as you're aware, gaining a foothold. Some of these fighters have gone to the Philippines from Syria and Iraq. We are in conversations with the Philippine government, with Indonesia, with Malaysia, with Singapore, with Australia, as partners to recognize this threat, try to get ahead of this threat.feedback

Eugene Tan

There is a groundswell of strong views online. But more at the electoral process and the government, which is seen as exclusive and disenfranchising.feedback

Halimah Yacob

I promise to do the best that I can to serve the people of Singapore, and that doesn't change whether there is an election or no election. My passion and commitment to serve the people of Singapore remain the same.feedback

Cyril Abiteboul - Renault

Williams sits just 21 points ahead of us in fifth place in the constructors' championship and, with seven races to go, it's very much in our capability to chase that down by the end of the season. We need to create some momentum and string together some consistent results with both cars inside the top ten. Singapore [this weekend] will be vital to kick start this effort.feedback

Madison Keys

I think you take a lot of pressure off of yourself. I know for me last year, my only focus was to get to Singapore. I kind of lost sight of how much I actually loved the game because it was just every week, it was just chasing points. That's all I could focus on.feedback

John Cryan - Deutsche Bank

There is only one European city which can fulfil these requirements and that city is Frankfurt. It's not about a choice between Dublin, Paris or Frankfurt – it's about a choice between New York, Singapore or Frankfurt. Brexit could become a large stimulus package for Frankfurt's economy.feedback

Craig Reedie - World Anti-Doping Agency

Seb and I agreed right at the start that it was going to be done properly, because if anything was even remotely improper it would kill the whole image of the Olympic movement in this country and besides, we didn't have any money anyway. I'm surprised at Nuzman's links to everything that's going on in Brazil, My wife and I took him and his wife out to dinner in Singapore but that is it. I was never approached with any inducements and to my knowledge neither were Seb or Keith. I'm as close to certain as possible that London was a clean bid.feedback

Paul Brough

We have approached them for a further extension so that we can complete the oil liquids sale on a stable basis. I am hoping that we can also speak to our RCF (revolving credit facility) lenders about further forbearance from them.feedback

Zennon Kapron

Regulators globally are struggling to understand what ICOs are, what the risks are, and how to ring-fence and regulate them. China, in many ways, is no different than the U.S. or Singapore in saying, ok, we need to push back on these for now until we figure out how to deal with them... I think it will be slightly a temporary measure.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I'm sure there is more we have learned to put us in a better position next time out in Singapore. I still expect Ferrari to be better there in the slow and medium-speed corners but I'm going there with the attitude that we will be trying to win.feedback

Valtteri Bottas

Singapore will be a completely different another story there, but we were the quickest here, had the perfect result for us as a team, congratulations to Lewis for his win and with me second it was perfect for us, but we need to learn the lessons from today to be strong again in Singapore. The was tricky but I needed to keep my head down and get the places step by step. The car was so strong today, like I said on the team radio it was amazing how quick we were, it was pure joy today. I enjoyed it and it was the perfect result for us as a team, so thank you team. No dramas today.feedback

Valtteri Bottas

I actually had three cars to pass in the beginning as the start was quite poor, with a lot of wheel spin one Ferrari got past, so I had to get him first. That was going to be the most difficult and most important part for us, but I managed to get him really quickly and then I was quickly up to P2. The car was so well balanced today, so strong, for sure we're quick in the straights but this weekend we were also quick in every single corner, we found a stability this weekend we never had before, but this is a unique track, we can't rely on that to think we're quickest -- that's not the case.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

We always say Monza is a weak circuit, but we tend to have really good races here. If we are having a rebirth, Singapore will be a big action for us, hopefully we have a big baby there in terms of a trophy.feedback

Ole Hansen - Saxo Bank

Tony Nunan - Mitsubishi

With crack spreads blowing out, the U.S. is going to need products ... so Asian and other refiners are going to have to ramp up runs.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

Started off on the front foot, getting the podium in Spa, but at the end there I was pushing like hell there to keep Kimi behind me, but Lewis was pushing like hell to keep Seb behind him. So we were all attacking, we weren't saving tyres, and we were still a second a lap -- at least I was -- than Lewis and Seb. So we've still got some ground to make up. I think the next update we have is in Singapore, and that will be not only a circuit that suits us but with the upgrade will give us a realistic change of fighting for another win.feedback

Hua Chunying

The Japanese side, in disregard of China's stern stance, goes so far as to follow some countries to impose unilateral sanctions on the Chinese enterprises and individuals. We are strongly dissatisfied with and firmly opposed to this. The past has proven that pressure and sanction only will not fundamentally settle the issue. We believe that only by addressing the legitimate security concerns of all parties in a balanced way can the intricate and complicated Peninsula issue be peacefully resolved and the vicious cycle of more sanctions followed by more missile tests be fundamentally cut off.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

It's going to take everything from every single one of us to finish these next eight races and come out on top which is how a championship should be. But the following races where we have to apply downforce is going to be tough. When we got to Singapore, yeah, their car is very good in those conditions.feedback

Scott Swift

In the wake of two tragic collisions, our hearts may be broken but our will remains strong. The Pacific Fleet has faced adversity before in our history, and no matter the challenge, we have overcome it.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

While we've had a very solid season and a well put together weekend [in Spa], it was only just enough to stay ahead. The next race may be the same, or who knows, maybe our gap will be bigger or they'll be ahead again. I can't predict it, but the following races where we have to apply downforce will be tough -- when we go to Singapore, their car is very good in those conditions.feedback

Tan Dan Feng

Singapore used to be like a linguistic tropical rain forest – overgrown, and a bit chaotic but very vibrant and thriving. Now, after decades of pruning and cutting, it's a garden focused on cash crops: learn English or Mandarin to get ahead and the rest is useless, so we cut it down.feedback

Bryan McGrath

It raises questions about the readiness of those ships and whether or not they are navigating prudently in very crowded waters.

There's still many track to come that requires a lot of downforce. Spa is mainly about efficiency, Monza is very low downforce but then Singapore you need the downforce again.
