[SPONSORED VIDEO] Jenson Button’s relentless drive to succeed

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

The Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix is undoubtedly one of the toughest races on the calendar.


Each time the drivers are in town, they say the same thing – that the Marina Bay street circuit is a really challenging one.

It is the longest race of the season (two hours), with tricky turns, limited overtaking opportunities because of the tight and narrow track.

The unforgiving nature of the circuit leaves little room for error from the drivers and the humid weather increases the challenge.

Over the five editions of the Singapore Grand Prix that we have witnessed, there was never one race without the need for a safety car due to an incident on the track.

As a result, winning the Singapore Grand Prix is not easy and it brings great satisfaction to the drivers after completing such a long and hot race.

In this video, Johnnie Walker and F1 world champions Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton share how the spirit of Singapore drives them to succeed.

Hamilton won in Singapore in 2009 and qualified at the recent one two weeks ago. Button on the other hand, finished second last year and this year.

Hear what they have to say:
