Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton has insisted he will come back stronger after being forced to retire from the Singapore Grand Prix.

Hamilton accepted that his team had failed as a unit, but pledged to do all he could moving forward.

"It's still a long way to go. I know I lost some points today," he said.

"But I was fast and on form and I will make sure I bring that to Suzuka next weekend to fight back."


Across to boxing and Amir Khan has confirmed talks with Manny Pacquiao’s camp regarding a potential fight in the near future.

Khan said that Al Haymon, his adviser, is working on getting the bout made and talked up the chances of it happening.

"A fight against Manny Pacquiao would be a great event and a fight I would really want," said Khan.

"Al Haymon, who advises me and looks after my interests, also likes the fight and hopes the fight can be made. We are in negotiations with Manny's team to try to make the fight a reality."


Lastly, Andy Murray has confirmed he may miss the World Tour Finals if Belgium opt to hold the Davis Cup final on clay.

Murray spoke over the demands a clay appearance could have, and questioned whether he would make the World Finals as a result.

"The O2 would obviously be a question mark for me if we were playing on the clay," Murray told the BBC.

"I would go and train and prepare on the clay to get ready for the final."
