Marcus Ericsson is looking to make it four point-scoring races in a row next weekend in Singapore.

The ever-improving Swede will be relying on a few aerodynamic tweaks Sauber will be bringing to Marina Bay, and aiming for nothing less than a top-ten finish.

"The Singapore Grand Prix offers spectators a great backdrop," said Ericsson. "It is always a very special race that I like a lot."

While Ericsson's 2015 season got off to a rather auspicious in Melbourne where he finished 8th, his performance level then appeared to trail off a bit compared to that of his Sauber team mate Felipe Nasr.

But a regain in form in the latter part of the summer marked by a series of consistent runs in Hungary, Belgium and Italy has enabled Ericsson to vie for a top-ten finish on his own merit.

“I can hardly wait to get to Singapore, as this street circuit is one of my favourite tracks. The fact that the race is held at night brings a unique atmosphere with the city being under floodlights. For me it is definitely one of the highlights of the season.

“I am also looking forward to the Singapore Grand Prix because of our aero-update. Our goal is to get the maximum out of this innovation.”
