Button expects Singapore to hold many answers

Reigning world champion Jenson Button is expecting next weekend's Singapore Grand Prix to cast more light on the destination of this year's crown, as the sport hits Asia for the first of five fly-away races to end the year. Singapore marks the first low-speed circuit since the Hungarian Grand Prix in early August and Button expects the challenging layout to answer a lot of questions about the 2010 title challengers.

"The Singapore Grand Prix will be a very interesting weekend because I think it'll give us a clearer idea of the destiny of the world championship," Button said. "The last time we were at a low-speed, high-downforce track was in Hungary back at the start of August; our car wasn't particularly competitive there, and maybe we haven't had a properly representative view of the top teams' relative pace because we've just visited two high-speed circuits."
