Lol, As much as I would like to it won't be possible due to the nature of the business being conducted/discussed. :(

I haven't bought tix myself, but a friend of mine has gotten pit invitations from Lotus in all 3 years (first the green one, then the black one last year and this year) went with him in 2010, but seeing if he can bring me along again this year

I think Mclaren will be strong here. What about Lotus and there device, is it worth a lot round here? Could be in for a shout if they get it working...

As far as I've been able to gather, it's benefit comes mostly in the form of extra speed on the straights. Not many of them at Marina Bay...

Yes - the real benefits will come at tracks which favour downforce efficiency. A track like Suzuka or Korea - where you need downforce, but also have straights (Spa would've been good too)

My predictions:

Qualifying:
1. Vettel
2. Hamilton
3. Button
4. Schumacher
5. Alonso
6. Webber
7. Grosjean
8. Rosberg
9. Raikkonen
10. Massa

Race:
1. Vettel
2. Raikkonen
3. Hamilton
4. Button
5. Grosjean
6. Alonso (yes, I'm fully aware that his Lonso-ness has never been off the podium except for last year, where he was still 4th)
7. Webber
8. Massa
9. Senna
10. Vergne

I got a feeling McLaren will be stronger then Red bull. Hungary also was a typical Red Bull circuit last year, but that changed too. It also seems that the last couple of upgrade put McLaren with head and shoulders above everybody else

Judging by Monaco, McLaren don't stand a chance of having a good package around here.

Webber has not been strong in the final sector here - he was challenging for pole last year up until S3 and he lost a lot of time there in 2010 if memory serves me.

Could Mercedes be strong here? They have good traction and the lower track temperatures should suit them ? Or does Singapore still have hot track temp despite being at night?

Well, they (Hamilton) were about 2-3 tenths off the qualy pace at Monaco, and Singapore isn't completely like Monaco either; there is alot more space to take corners wider and thus carry more speed through it, so the balance shifts a little bit back to McLaren.

McLaren will bring new updates to Singapore, Sam Michael said that earlier this season.
