Southwater GP2 racer Jolyon Palmer admits he will be taking a step into the unknown when the Formula 1 feeder series reaches its climax at Singapore this weekend.

The final rounds of the series are held on the Marina Bay Street Circuit, and after a podium in the last round at Monza, Palmer is eager for the new challenge.

“I can’t wait for Singapore,” he said. “The track is new for everyone and so getting up to speed quickly will be crucial. I have been quick on street circuits this year so hopefully that will translate into good results this weekend but it is an unknown for everybody. The race will be tough as humidity and temperatures will both be high and unlike F1, we are racing in the heat of the day but I am looking forward to the challenge.”
