Bob Fernley

We made the most of an incident-filled race to score points with both cars. We started on the full wet tyres, which were the correct tyres for the early laps, but the rain eased off sooner than expected and the track came towards the cars on intermediates. We had to react quickly to the various safety car periods and the pit wall made the right calls to ensure we were always on the right tyres for the conditions.feedback

Fernando Alonso

At the end, we had some electrical problems and we had to stop. These things sometimes happen in motor racing and unfortunately it happened to us today. We had so much hope for this race, and in wet conditions we are very strong so the disappointment is even bigger. Despite my disappointment this evening, it's actually been a positive and fun weekend - the team has done an outstanding job and I'll be hoping for better luck in Sepang in a fortnight's time.feedback

Max Verstappen

The rear wheels are wider than the front so I was locked in the sandwich with no way out, even when I braked. If I made a mistake myself I would be upset or angry but there was nothing I could do today. We all lost out in the end so we all experienced some pain rather than someone making a mistake and then being able to carry on. We have to take the positives from the weekend, we were quick in qualifying and the practice sessions with good potential going into the race, we can hold onto this and move on to the next race.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I had an average start and then I moved slightly to the left trying to defend my position from Max. Then I got bumped on one side as Kimi's car hit me. I'm not sure what happened. I span at turn 3, but that's because the car was damaged already. Today we were on the wrong side of the track, which doesn't help. But there is nothing we can do now and for sure it is bitter, and it's a pity we couldn't show our pace today; but we have other races ahead of us and I am sure there will be more opportunities for us.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

The rain made it all pretty hectic today. Everyone was in the same boat though and we hadn't driven in the wet here before so it's all about switching on early, being aware of the situation and trying to adapt as quick as you can. My start was quite slow off the line. In hindsight probably a good thing, because it allowed the chaos to unfold in front of me.feedback

Paddy Lowe - Hamilton

After a poor qualifying it's great to come out of another race with some points on the board. It was looking like it would be an interesting race as soon as the rain came in. We have never had rain for the race in Singapore and it was remarkably persistent. Lance chose to start on the intermediate tyre in P18 with Felipe opting for the extreme wet in P17. Unfortunately, along with a few other drivers, the full wet turned out to be the wrong choice.feedback

Max Verstappen

My start was a little bit better than Seb and I think he saw that so he tried to move to the left to squeeze me out of the line a bit but he did not know Kimi was on my other side. I think it wasn't the smartest move and you can't make excuses for it when you are fighting for a world championship. Kimi had a great start and was alongside me very quickly, I didn't try and defend that as I knew it would be a long race, he then started to squeeze me also, at which point there wasn't a lot I could do.feedback

Paddy Lowe - Hamilton

We hoped to jump straight from the full wet to the dry tyre, which is why we tried to stay out longer in the first stint, but we missed that window by a few laps and he had to make an extra stop for intermediates, which really ruined his race. Nevertheless, it was a good drive from P17 to P11, to finish just outside the points. Congratulations to the team as well, to bring two cars home is a really important achievement in a race of such high attrition. Our reliability was good and we collected some valuable points in the Championship.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

At the start I had a very good jump, then I got hit; that was the end of our race. I don't think I could have really done anything differently to avoid it, apart from doing a bad start and not being there. It's a pity, one of those things you pay a big price for. Whatever the cause or the issue, it doesn't change the end result unfortunately. We go to the next races ready to fight and do our best.feedback

Bob Fernley

We lost out during the second safety car period, which cost both drivers track position -- Esteban more so than Sergio. From there both drivers recovered ground, but it wasn't easy to overtake. Sergio had a long battle with Sainz and Esteban was fighting with Magnussen and Grosjean. Considering where we started the race, to come away with eleven points is a very satisfactory end to the weekend.feedback

Christian Horner

It was enormously frustrating to lose Max at the start of the race, in an incident that quite clearly had nothing to do with him. Sebastian moving to the left, Kimi moving to the right sandwiched Max and there was nowhere for him to go. Then, after the re-start, Daniel started to lose an awful lot of gearbox oil, which created a lot of problems with oil pressure, and we were feeling that it was looking unlikely that Daniel would get to the end of the race.feedback

Christian Horner

However he managed to nurse the gearbox of the car incredibly well for three-quarters of the grand prix, and though able to hold off any threat from behind from Valtteri, unfortunately he could not attack Lewis ahead. So it has been another second place for us in Singapore, but a strong podium to take away considering how things were looking after the first 15 laps.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

What a day -- I can't believe it, I'm so happy! I came in today and I saw that I was raining and I knew that this balances everything out. I love racing in the rain, then everything unfolded in the beginning. Starting on the Intermediates I thought it was going to be much closer pace-wise. These conditions give you the opportunity to really make a difference with your driving. It was the first time for all of us driving here in the rain, so it was a massive challenge.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

I made a good start and I got hit and obviously there was nothing I could do after that. That was the end of the race so now we see what happens.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

The fact is we cannot change it that we're no longer in the race -- that's really the bad part. The painful part for us is that both our cars were out of the race after the first few hundred metres -- it's far from what we would have hoped for.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

It was one of those things and it was obviously bad for our race. Far from ideal, but it is what it is. You probably saw it better than me, but we got hit and taken out; that was the end of our race. The are always different views from the people watching it, but I don't know. All I know is that I couldn't have done anything differently to avoid it.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

Blame? Today the end result is the same whichever way you look at it. That's really the only thing that maters now and whatever comes after that it still doesn't make any difference.feedback

Kimi Raikkonen

I got hit. I don't know about Max, you have to ask him. It was one of those things and you pay a big price for it. But I don't think I could have done anything different from what I did to avoid it. It's a shame but that's it. I had a good first 100 metres but then the race ended there. We're out and it's far from ideal. The fact is we cannot change it that we're no longer in the race -- that's really the bad part. The painful part for us is that both our cars were out of the race after the first few hundred metres -- it's far from what we would have hoped for.feedback

Fernando Alonso

Unfortunately this race we had a lot of hopes. These things sometimes happen in racing and unfortunately it happened to us today.feedback

Fernando Alonso

The car was amazing today at the start. We did an amazing launch and I was in front of Hamilton in Turn 1. After that we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was only Vettel, Kimi and Verstappen that hit me so arguably we could be in P1 now.feedback

Maurizio Arrivabene - Ferrari

That was very disappointing and it was definitely not the result we were expecting. But it doesn't mean that the battle is all over, just that it has become more difficult. We are very disappointed for our fans, but we will be back. We proved that we have an excellent car and two great drivers. All of us, those here in Singapore today and those working back in Maranello, we all have the Prancing Horse stamped on our hearts and we guarantee that we will be fighting right to the final corner of the very last Grand Prix of the year.feedback

Christian Horner

Anybody that tries to apportion any blame on Verstappen needs their eyes testing.feedback

Max Verstappen

I think mainly Sebastian. He started squeezing me. Maybe he didn't see Kimi on the left but that's not an excuse I think if you are fighting for the world championship, you shouldn't take those risks and really like squeeze someone that much. You can see what happens, Lewis is leading the race and the three of us are out. I tried to back out of it because I could see it coming but the rear tyres are wider than the front so I couldn't back out of it. Suspension damage. Into the first corner those things can happen because Kimi had only two tyres left.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I'm happy that we got the car where it deserved to be and then we'll take it from there. Tomorrow's a long race. These Red Bull guys are very, very quick. We had a difficult night yesterday, a better night today and I'm sure the car will be like today tomorrow, so it should be better but it will be a very close race.feedback

Valtteri Bottas

I think it's our yearly wake-up call. I actually think, and this might sound overly-optimistic and I'm not, that what we've seen today is the pace of the car around Singapore.feedback

Valtteri Bottas

That's been really the thing for me the whole weekend and the harder I tried the more I struggled. So I needed to control the slides and the wheel slips more than I would want to and the pace is just slow. And if I tried to push harder than it would get even worse, so it's been a little bit of a confusing weekend so far for me.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

It's something I have been moving towards. First I stopped eating red meat, then chicken. After seeing a few documentaries, I realised that the cruelty we show towards animals was something I didn't want to support. Plus, I want to lead a healthy life. A lot of friends I have met along the way say that they have gone vegan and that it is the best decision they ever made. When I see how some meat clogs up your arteries, there's no way I'm putting myself through it. I have had heart disease and cancer in my family and I don't want to go down the same route.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

We knew that today would be tough. We definitely didn't anticipate Ferrari would be as strong as they were. We thought Red Bull would be as quick as they were. I got everything I could out of the car, I gave it everything, everything and more. I squeezed every single bit out of it. I was holding on to the reins for dear life. I didn't think I'd be this far off. It's strange from race to race, it's a little bit different between us. But I hope that at the races coming up we'll be really strong.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I don't know where Ferrari has picked up that pace. It's strange, from race to race it's a little bit different between us. But the races coming up I think we'll be strong.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I don't know [where I found that time] and I struggled also this afternoon. I shouted as loud as them [the crowd] -- it was unbelievable. I'm still full of adrenaline so maybe whatever I say doesn't make any sense but I love this track. The car was tricky but it came alive and it got better and better as the night progressed, so really happy we got it done.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I tried a fast lap, I just didn't finish it. Today is not a problem, it's Friday and you are here to try -- it's free practice, so it's for free! Not ideal but overall I think important to get the feel for the car, that's more important. We're still not where we want to be so a lot of work ahead.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

Oh I don't know. Priority is to go as fast as we can and then we'll see where that takes us. It's not the first Friday they've been competitive so I don't know what they did. I'm sure it will be close tomorrow but how it will be exactly I don't know.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

Red Bull were rapid so we have just got to accept that they are super fast and I don't know if we'll be able to beat them in qualifying. We gave it everything we could and we're still not anywhere near Red Bulls they just seemed to be a little bit further ahead today. We're going to look at all of the options. Some fundamental things with our car may stop us from getting much quicker but we're going to push as hard as we can and do work overnight and see if we can improve the car.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I think we are relatively close to Ferrari so hopefully we can fight them which is a good thing.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

A dominant weekend is what I'm after. I want to continue like that for tomorrow and Sunday and I think we can. On these types of circuits we know we have a good chance, so I came here very committed and determined to do what we have done today. We will potentially be stronger than Ferrari and Mercedes [tomorrow and Sunday].feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

We made some progress from this morning, even if we were quickest. I was still wanting more from the car and we found another step.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I think we're relatively close to Ferrari, so that's how it is. We target to win races. But of course we want to make sure I'm ahead of Sebastian so that's my goal.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

It was not ideal, I didn't mean to go off. I was very lucky I could continue. It was a tricky session for us. The balance wasn't quite there. But I think it's in the car. We tried a couple of things. I'm not sure they are the right things to do. Now we see what we can do tomorrow. It's not the first Friday we've struggled. I'm pretty sure we'll be close tomorrow.feedback

S Iswaran

I'm very glad that all the parties concerned have been able to agree on commercial terms for an extension as Formula One and, I believe, Singapore have been good for each other. Over the past decade the Singapore race has introduced many innovative elements and become an iconic and highly anticipated event on the F1 calendar.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

We've come here now 10 times and I think it's like a real classic race already. It belongs in the calendar. It looks cool from the outside to see the cars at night, it's a cool race, it's a big city, so it's fun to drive.feedback

Calvin Harris

We are very pleased that it will continue to feature on the calendar for a further four years.feedback

Steve O'Neil

We've done several megawatts-scale installations. We have floating solar here in Singapore, in Thailand and Japan.feedback

Elena Chatzikonstantinou

The Singapore Grand Prix is one-of-a-kind and exciting. It might sound ideal to some to throw a Monaco-style F1 party with champagne and bikinis yacht-side, cheering with F1 cars on the background. Perfect shots for Instagram stories. However, I have been approached multiple times and called to examine the probability of holding the Code 20 events in Singapore, and every time I have decided that it is not a good idea.feedback

Elena Chatzikonstantinou

The teams in Singapore work until 3 or 4 in the morning, sometimes even until 5 or 6 a.m. Why party?feedback

Romain Grosjean

Every time we run maximum downforce, the car seems to work better. We've got a better efficiency between drag and downforce, so that's good. The key for us in Singapore will be to get into the tire window. If we do so, we'll be in a good place. But again, that's not easy to achieve.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

I believe we can win another [race]. We've certainly got stronger and stronger and I think at the high down force circuits this year we've been pretty good and getting better. At the last race, on the low down force circuit, we had really good pace on the Sunday which was a little surprising. So with that, and coming here with a few updates, we should be there.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

It doesn't seem like these sort of circuits, this year, is a strength of Mercedes. I think it can bring Ferrari and us right into that battle.feedback

Thibaut Courtois

Rudiger joined us in Singapore so he learned very well how the manager wants us to play. Bakayoko was injured for a while, but he trained with us for a while before he played his first game. But Zappacosta has only trained for a few days, he came in against Leicester [as a substitute] and did well. Then last night he played a good game and scored a brilliant goal and a good assist.feedback

Chase Carey - News Corporation

It's certainly a spectacular setting with the city lit up, racing through the streets, a race we are proud of. In many ways it's a race that anchors our Asian strategy. Still early days for us growing in Asia. But certainly a signature race for Asia, a signature race for us globally and it's great to be here.feedback

Zennon Kapron

The only way you can really stop bitcoin in China completely is if you shut down the internet. So the regulators are really focused on the points where bitcoin hits fiat currency. The current regulation that's being talked about is banning bitcoin exchanges, which would cut out a lot of the trade flows we're seeing in China right now and the exchanges around bitcoin. So we'll likely see them focused around those activities where there is an entity or person or some kind of connection to the traditional financial system that they can control.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

We already see elements of ISIS in the Philippines, as you're aware, gaining a foothold. Some of these fighters have gone to the Philippines from Syria and Iraq. We are in conversations with the Philippine government, with Indonesia, with Malaysia, with Singapore, with Australia, as partners to recognize this threat, try to get ahead of this threat.feedback

Eugene Tan

There is a groundswell of strong views online. But more at the electoral process and the government, which is seen as exclusive and disenfranchising.feedback

Halimah Yacob

I promise to do the best that I can to serve the people of Singapore, and that doesn't change whether there is an election or no election. My passion and commitment to serve the people of Singapore remain the same.feedback

Cyril Abiteboul - Renault

Williams sits just 21 points ahead of us in fifth place in the constructors' championship and, with seven races to go, it's very much in our capability to chase that down by the end of the season. We need to create some momentum and string together some consistent results with both cars inside the top ten. Singapore [this weekend] will be vital to kick start this effort.feedback

Madison Keys

I think you take a lot of pressure off of yourself. I know for me last year, my only focus was to get to Singapore. I kind of lost sight of how much I actually loved the game because it was just every week, it was just chasing points. That's all I could focus on.feedback

John Cryan - Deutsche Bank

There is only one European city which can fulfil these requirements and that city is Frankfurt. It's not about a choice between Dublin, Paris or Frankfurt – it's about a choice between New York, Singapore or Frankfurt. Brexit could become a large stimulus package for Frankfurt's economy.feedback

Craig Reedie - World Anti-Doping Agency

Seb and I agreed right at the start that it was going to be done properly, because if anything was even remotely improper it would kill the whole image of the Olympic movement in this country and besides, we didn't have any money anyway. I'm surprised at Nuzman's links to everything that's going on in Brazil, My wife and I took him and his wife out to dinner in Singapore but that is it. I was never approached with any inducements and to my knowledge neither were Seb or Keith. I'm as close to certain as possible that London was a clean bid.feedback

Paul Brough

We have approached them for a further extension so that we can complete the oil liquids sale on a stable basis. I am hoping that we can also speak to our RCF (revolving credit facility) lenders about further forbearance from them.feedback

Zennon Kapron

Regulators globally are struggling to understand what ICOs are, what the risks are, and how to ring-fence and regulate them. China, in many ways, is no different than the U.S. or Singapore in saying, ok, we need to push back on these for now until we figure out how to deal with them... I think it will be slightly a temporary measure.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

I'm sure there is more we have learned to put us in a better position next time out in Singapore. I still expect Ferrari to be better there in the slow and medium-speed corners but I'm going there with the attitude that we will be trying to win.feedback

Valtteri Bottas

Singapore will be a completely different another story there, but we were the quickest here, had the perfect result for us as a team, congratulations to Lewis for his win and with me second it was perfect for us, but we need to learn the lessons from today to be strong again in Singapore. The was tricky but I needed to keep my head down and get the places step by step. The car was so strong today, like I said on the team radio it was amazing how quick we were, it was pure joy today. I enjoyed it and it was the perfect result for us as a team, so thank you team. No dramas today.feedback

Valtteri Bottas

I actually had three cars to pass in the beginning as the start was quite poor, with a lot of wheel spin one Ferrari got past, so I had to get him first. That was going to be the most difficult and most important part for us, but I managed to get him really quickly and then I was quickly up to P2. The car was so well balanced today, so strong, for sure we're quick in the straights but this weekend we were also quick in every single corner, we found a stability this weekend we never had before, but this is a unique track, we can't rely on that to think we're quickest -- that's not the case.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

We always say Monza is a weak circuit, but we tend to have really good races here. If we are having a rebirth, Singapore will be a big action for us, hopefully we have a big baby there in terms of a trophy.feedback

Ole Hansen - Saxo Bank

The price (for fuels) will continue to be supported until flows are reinstated or imports from Europe and elsewhere pick up.feedback

Tony Nunan - Mitsubishi

With crack spreads blowing out, the U.S. is going to need products ... so Asian and other refiners are going to have to ramp up runs.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

Started off on the front foot, getting the podium in Spa, but at the end there I was pushing like hell there to keep Kimi behind me, but Lewis was pushing like hell to keep Seb behind him. So we were all attacking, we weren't saving tyres, and we were still a second a lap -- at least I was -- than Lewis and Seb. So we've still got some ground to make up. I think the next update we have is in Singapore, and that will be not only a circuit that suits us but with the upgrade will give us a realistic change of fighting for another win.feedback

Hua Chunying

The Japanese side, in disregard of China's stern stance, goes so far as to follow some countries to impose unilateral sanctions on the Chinese enterprises and individuals. We are strongly dissatisfied with and firmly opposed to this. The past has proven that pressure and sanction only will not fundamentally settle the issue. We believe that only by addressing the legitimate security concerns of all parties in a balanced way can the intricate and complicated Peninsula issue be peacefully resolved and the vicious cycle of more sanctions followed by more missile tests be fundamentally cut off.feedback

Yossi Vardi

You always have to reach out outside of the boundaries of your five, six, seven or 20 people.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

It's going to take everything from every single one of us to finish these next eight races and come out on top which is how a championship should be. But the following races where we have to apply downforce is going to be tough. When we got to Singapore, yeah, their car is very good in those conditions.feedback

Scott Swift

In the wake of two tragic collisions, our hearts may be broken but our will remains strong. The Pacific Fleet has faced adversity before in our history, and no matter the challenge, we have overcome it.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

While we've had a very solid season and a well put together weekend [in Spa], it was only just enough to stay ahead. The next race may be the same, or who knows, maybe our gap will be bigger or they'll be ahead again. I can't predict it, but the following races where we have to apply downforce will be tough -- when we go to Singapore, their car is very good in those conditions.feedback

Tan Dan Feng

Singapore used to be like a linguistic tropical rain forest – overgrown, and a bit chaotic but very vibrant and thriving. Now, after decades of pruning and cutting, it's a garden focused on cash crops: learn English or Mandarin to get ahead and the rest is useless, so we cut it down.feedback

During my removal from Britain I was treated like a terrorist: I was restrained by the arms, my every word written down, and there were guards on the door when I went to the toilet. This happened in full view of the public in Edinburgh airport, and was deeply humiliating. They embarrass me in front of everybody, the only thing I did wrong was marry a British man and want to stay in the country with my kids and my husband.feedback

Mary Richardson

The idea was, we want to be up there. We want to be competing with Singapore and China. We need to extend the top end of the assessment so we can see how well we are competing.

I usually, because I'm dancing so much, I do have a little bit of playback, but there's a mixture of my voice and the playback.

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

The chief of naval operations' broader enquiry will look at all related accidents, incidents at sea, that sort of thing. He is going to look at all factors, not just the immediate one.feedback

Abu Bakar

I don't think we should … argue about whose waters, because I think the most important thing is to focus on the search and rescue effort. The assets on the ground also, they are talking to each other. One thing is very clear is that we do not want to have another collision between the assets on the ground.feedback

Bryan McGrath

It raises questions about the readiness of those ships and whether or not they are navigating prudently in very crowded waters. We've gone years since a collision [and] to have two, one after the other, is either a coincidence, which I'm willing to believe, or it's a sign of something deeper, which I'm also willing to believe.feedback

One of our strengths is that we can play very well with short passes, but we need to work on our finishing. There's no point of playing well if we can't find the back of the net. We have a lot to work on ahead of the match against Singapore this Wednesday.feedback

Valtteri Bottas

There's still many track to come that requires a lot of downforce. Spa is mainly about efficiency, Monza is very low downforce but then Singapore you need the downforce again. We are really working hard and trying to make the car better because if we don't make any progress it's going to be a tricky season.feedback

Steve Ingham

Comparison really is the thief of joy. I hear a lot of subtle comments like: 'Why didn't we have this for our wedding?' or 'Why didn't we have those types of chairs?' These aren't innocent conversations. There's animosity and tension, and I've seen that lead to arguments.feedback

Mike Garlick

I have an office in Singapore. I was out there a couple of years ago. I walked along a street full of bars, and they were all showing Burnley. From 7,000 miles away. Burnley. The Premier League puts us – places like us – on the map. And that has got to be a good thing.feedback

It's completely crazy. He would have to first make that request through us, which he has not, and that event conflicts with F1 in Singapore. It's fake news.feedback

Rachel Chua - Moody's

Most of the smaller guys operate warehouses, logistics properties and factories where the occupancy has been declining and the challenges will continue easily over six-nine months before we see any recovery.feedback

Nicholas Teo

For retail investors and swing traders, this is an easy course of action. For institutional money, however, this could be a tougher call especially when there is a lack of viable replacement (for their holdings in the banks).feedback

Samuel Tsien

Being stable is not adequate for loans to be paid off as scheduled because you need to have continued strong cash flow to pay off those debts. We need the oil and gas sector to improve before the whole situation can be classified as recovering.feedback

Andrea Radrizzani

After a couple of weeks, I called [previous owner, Massimo] Cellino pretending to have an interest from a potential investor in Asia. I was based in Singapore. Cellino opened up completely saying that he was ready to sell, that he was a bit desperate because he was alone and his family were in London and he was in Leeds all the time and so he would welcome a potential investor.feedback

Li Shengwu

It is not my intent to attack the Singapore judiciary or to undermine public confidence in the administration of justice. Any criticism I made is of the Singapore government's litigious nature, and its use of legal rules and actions to stifle the free press.feedback

Li Shengwu

I intended to convey that the international media were restricted in their ability to report on the recent crisis, due to the litigious nature of the Singapore government. The government makes use of these legal rules to restrict unfavorable reporting.feedback

This transaction brings tremendous value to our business, our employees and our customers. Over the past few years, Conergy has built leading positions in the Asia Pacific market, creating a formidable and highly competitive organization with excellent growth prospects. TCP's and GSBD's extensive experience and access to capital will strengthen Conergy's financial position, enhance our capabilities, and allow us to pursue new business opportunities in the region and execute our plans for growth in Australia, the emerging markets of Southeast Asia and Japan.feedback

China is putting a lot of pressure on the traditional export hubs of Taiwan, Korea and Singapore to capture the market share within Southeast Asia and Australia.feedback

I went to see England but it wasn't there/ I think I lost it down the back of my chair/ I think I'm losing my imagination/ I'm tired of talking about immigration. Had a girl in Lisbon, a girl in Rome/ Now I'll have to stay at home/ So lock the shutters, bolt the doors/London's gonna be like Singapore.feedback

Robert Mugabe

I thank God for having lived to this day. I thank God for the good life. I have an ailment here and there (but) my organs ... my heart and liver are very firm. Recently, doctors were actually surprised by the strength of my bones.feedback

Robert Mugabe

There is the issue that the president is going. I am not going. The president is dying. I am not dying. I will have an ailment here and there but body-wise, all my internal organs ... very firm, very strong.feedback

The market concern has been that the rate hikes in the U.S. have little or no impact on the Singapore interest rates environment. Nonetheless, we are gradually seeing some pass-through.feedback

Jeremy Teong - Phillip Securities

Given the significant weight of [the housing loans] segment, the Singapore banks will benefit from a stronger Singapore mortgage system loans growth.feedback

Jeremy Teong - Phillip Securities

The lumpy write-offs have been made last year, but there is still stress in the sector due to weak charter rates and lower drilling activities ... banks may need to pad up provisions as they face lower collateral values in these offshore marine vessels.feedback

James Rodriguez

I don't really know what the future will be. For the time being, I just want to be focused on Bayern Munich. The idea is to play as much as I can, win as many titles as I can. When the time comes, I will see what will happen.feedback

Agatha Yap

The 'Nasi Lemak' burger has proven to be one of our most successful promotions in recent years. We've seen tremendously overwhelming demand – in fact, double that of our expectations.feedback

Antonio Conte

I will give him the chance to play some of the game. Not from the start, though. He's just started to work but I want to give him part of the game.feedback

Antonio Conte

For sure, the Premier League is a different league. It is very tough, physically very strong, but he's ready to have a good impact.feedback

Antonio Conte

I speak about Morata... Morata is a young player but I think he has a lot of experience. He has played for two big teams, Juventus and Real Madrid, and he won the Champions League (with Real) last year. I think he can have a good impact in the Premier League.feedback

Antonio Conte

He understands his mistake and he's sorry. To play these type of games is very good.feedback

Antonio Conte

He should be okay. He stays here and if the situation is okay he will come tomorrow to Singapore. These games are important because you understand your level. We must be happy for the commitment of players and with our football.feedback

Carl Grivner - Colt Technology

We don't think the market is saturated at all. It's growing. Singapore was the first market outside of Europe that we wanted to build in. In Singapore the market is expected to grow 5 percent a year over the next four years, so we think it's a great time to come to Singapore.feedback

Osman Sulaiman

The recent case between Lee Hsien Loong and his siblings is not just a matter of Lee Kuan Yew's will. There's an allegation of abuse of power. And this allegation doesn't come from any Tom, Dick or Harry. It came from the prime minister's siblings, who are privy to information that is not available publicly.feedback

Ngee Huat

P. J. Thum

If you look at Singapore today, we're far from where we were 20 or 30 years ago. People are seizing more agency for themselves and the government is yielding.feedback

Sonny Liew

I'm trying to make history more inclusive rather than championing a competing version. The Singapore Story is part of the truth, but if you leave out the alternative histories it's a less accurate picture.feedback

Sonny Liew

When people ask me about Singapore and politics, I tell them I'm just a cartoonist. My book is meant to offer a more inclusive vision of Singapore's history, one that encourages readers to look at all narratives with a critical eye.feedback

Stephen Constantine

We are a fairly young team and a new team. We've lost one and won one against Singapore. We will probably be the underdogs going into the tournament, but the boys are fighters.feedback

Aimone Ripa di Meana - Lazada Group

We feel very confident about what we've built so far – we have a very unique approach to business. Having built teams that have been with us for a long time that function in a very organic way that know the markets, know the complexities that are in each market, which can't easily be replicated. I don't think knowing how to do (business in) Singapore is in any way relevant to how you build your business in the Philippines or Indonesia.feedback

Jonathan Larsen - Ping An

The primary rationale for the fund is strategic...to find capabilities, ideas, business models and technologies that can be valuable to Ping An.feedback

Jonathan Larsen - Ping An

We are at a point where we can very selectively contemplate international opportunities. And the fund could play a role in that mostly through partnerships.feedback

Lim Chow Kiat

Compared to last year, the world has become more uncertain ... but the market seems quite happy. I hope the market is right, but we are cautious. We are prepared for a period of protracted uncertainty and low returns.feedback

Jeffrey Jaensubhakij

Two years ago, we said the market would return x over the next 10 years. We would argue half of the x was returned in the first year, year and a half. Now there is only half an x over the next eight and a half years.feedback

Much of the research is not based on really good evidence. I think it's much more about the experiences that led you to have a specific mindset. They see it as a marathon not a sprint - it's much more about where that job can take you in the future.feedback

There's no specific agenda. It's really going to be whatever the president wants to talk about.feedback

Lee Hsien Loong

I agree with them. This is not a soap opera. We must all get back to work. Come together, tackle the challenges before us. My team and I will do our best to continue building this Singapore, keeping it safe, and making it prosper.feedback

Ernesto Abella

With the Supreme Court decision, the whole government now stands together as one against a common enemy. We ask the public to give their full support and cooperation to local authorities. After all, securing communities is a responsibility that must be shared by everyone.feedback

Pasquale Terracciano

There's a danger in fact. We are concerned because having an easy and relatively cheap access to market capitals here in London is very important for our industry at large. We'd not like seeing all the activities shifting from Europe to New York or Singapore. We'd all lose out in this case.feedback

Ernest Kan

We are expecting a strong pipeline of blockbuster listings in the second half of 2017 and coupled with the strong post-IPO performance of the companies listed in the first half, Singapore's IPO market is certainly buzzing with excitement.feedback

Tan Chuan Jin

This is a personal family issue, and it shouldn't be brought to the national level because it might create a bad impression around the world.feedback

Kirsten Han

These are allegations of abuse of power, subversion of due process, cronyism and nepotism. If true, they upend Singapore's carefully cultivated, squeaky-clean, corruption-free image. And, more important for the people of Singapore, they reveal that the 'A Team,' who have for decades presented themselves as the best option for the country, are actually using the power the electorate has bestowed upon them for their own personal goals.feedback

Eugene Tan

Ultimately, Prime Minister Lee and the government have to prevail in the court of public opinion. They have their work cut out for them, and how they do so matters immensely to Singapore and Singaporeans.feedback

Lee Hsien Yang

Regarding the house, and how its continued existence enhances my aura as PM, if I needed such magic properties to bolster my authority even after being your PM for 13 years, I must be in a pretty sad state.feedback

Lee Hsien Loong

In Singapore, everyone is equal before the law. Mr Lee (Kuan Yew) understood this most of all. When the dust has settled on this unhappy episode, people must know that the government operates transparently, impartially, and properly. That in Singapore, even Mr Lee's house and his wishes are subject to the rule of law.feedback

Lee Hsien Loong

It would also drag out the process for years, and cause more distraction and distress to Singaporeans. Therefore, fighting this out in court cannot be my preferred choice.feedback

Lee Hsien Loong

Their allegations are entirely baseless, but they have already damaged Singapore's reputation. Unrebutted, they can affect Singaporeans' confidence in the government. As your prime minister, I deeply regret that this has happened and apologize to Singaporeans for this. As a son, I am pained at the anguish this strife would have caused my parents if they were still alive.feedback

Ravi Menon - Frost & Sullivan

The rise in rates is itself a response to strengthening economic activity. But vigilance is still called for. Economies and markets ... could be thrown off balance if rates rise faster than expected.feedback

Ravi Menon - Frost & Sullivan

The calibrated adjustments by the government earlier this year do not signal the start of an unwinding of the property cooling measures as some commentators have suggested. Regional property markets have been buoyant and their respective authorities in the past months introduced further property cooling measures. Easing the measures will now send wrong signals.feedback

Ravi Menon - Frost & Sullivan

The property market has substantially stabilized over the last three years. The risk of a renewed unsustainable surge in property prices is not trivial.feedback

Ravi Menon - Frost & Sullivan

Darren Ho

No system will replace imports, we are here to make us more food resilient.feedback

Britney Spears

I'm glad you're addressing this question because it's really funny – a lot of people think that I don't sing live. I usually, because I'm dancing so much, I do have a little bit of playback. It really pi**es me off because I am busting my ass out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever really gives me credit for it, you know? In that situation, when you're not in control, you become less excited, and there's less passion when it comes to music.feedback

Matt Smith

None of those three are showing signs of a materially tightening market. I think the global market is showing signs of strain simply because you've got floating storage off Singapore and Malaysia close to the highest levels of the year. They're not dropping. In fact, they're tipping higher.feedback

Ahmed Zulkamal

The market keeps getting more diverse, the offerings are more varied every year. People always want to try the 'in' thing.feedback

Michael Buchanan - Western Asset Management

It's not the households. It's not the government, at least at the starting point, that has a lot of the debt. It's the corporate sector. So you look at the corporate sector and look at the interest bill versus earnings and if that gets too scary, then you're going to have concerns over the banks, and then you get deposit flight and then the government has to make some serious choices about currency stability versus tighter domestic liquidity.feedback

Michael Buchanan - Western Asset Management

If you're using the metrics from the Asia crisis, you're going to get the wrong answer. No one was saying to Thailand back in 1996, when it was running a 7.7-7.8 percent current account deficit, massively overvalued currency and no reserves, you need to consume more. The capital stock has not necessarily been overbuilt.feedback

Michael Buchanan - Western Asset Management

The efficiency of investment of investment might not be great, but there's no return on consumption. It's a little bit inconsistent to say, Gee you built the schools in a really inefficient way. I wish you'd bought donuts,' which is what a lot of people have been saying about China.feedback

Todd Schubert - Bank of Singapore

We believe that the company is in dire need of a transformational transaction such as a strategic partner or sale of a significant portion of its assets to arrest the negative feedback loop.feedback

Gloria Tsuen - Moody's Investors Service

Although the extension of the maturity on the secured credit facility temporarily alleviates the significant pressure on Noble's liquidity, we expect the company's liquidity risk to remain elevated given its large debt maturities over the next 12 months. We also expect its cash flow to remain weak over the next 12 months, given its deteriorating operating performance and working capital constraints.feedback

Mustafa Izzuddin

The PM had to do something about this amid fears it could impact investor confidence and the economy.feedback

Floyd Pinto

[Singapore] are miles apart [from Saudi Arabia in terms of quality] but hopefully we can control the game in the second half. We can be much more effective in the final third and score more goals. We usually don't concede more than two goals against any side. So that's something we can work on.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

In Singapore it was a bit more of an unknown what happened there. I definitely came away still not fully understanding why we were in the position we were in. This one, the team worked, the engineering was so much better, we really understood what went wrong, we really understood where the car was, why we couldn't activate the tyres, we came to Canada with actual real knowledge rather than an idea of what potentially might have been the case -- we came with real know-how.feedback

Lee Hsien Yang

Lee Kuan Yew's final will was simply Lee Kuan Yew's first will of 20 Aug 2011 re-executed on his instruction.feedback

Sam Leith

When I asked a spokesman for Singapore Airlines, he confessed that even the company's CEO had been baffled as to what they were doing there.feedback

Selena Ling - OCBC Bank

The two straight months of NODX declines is not a cause for concern at this juncture amid the healthy electronics momentum and resilience in key NODX markets. NODX growth is coming off a very strong first quarter and January-May NODX growth was already 8.8 percent year-on-year. So some normalization is to be anticipated, but electronics exports remains the key to watch going ahead.feedback

Ku Swee Yong

You can't build 20 storeys on it, so that puts a cap on the land value. Depending on how you design the two-floor mixed-landed project the land value could be worth a little bit more, so let's say S$25 million.feedback

Winston Lee - PropertyGuru

Usually in a property cycle, in a down-cycle, the indicator of a bounce back does not start with price. It actually starts with the volume. So that volume bounce back sent a certain signal and also gives a confidence booster to the property developers that the market in Singapore might have a bottomed out.feedback

Lee Hsien Yang

I have no desire to leave. Hsien Loong is the only reason for my departure.feedback

Lee Kuan Yew

I've seen other houses, Nehru's, Shakespeare's. They become a shambles after a while. People trudge through. Because of my house, the neighbouring houses cannot build high. Now demolish my house and change the planning rules, go up, the land value will go up.feedback

Lee Kuan Yew

I don't think my daughter or my wife or I, who lived in it, or my sons who grew up in it will bemoan its loss. They have old photos to remind them of the past.feedback

Lee Hsien Yang

If Hsien Loong is prepared to act thus against us, both contributing members of Singapore's establishment, to advance his personal agenda, we worry for Singapore.feedback

Wei Ling
Lee Hsien Yang

Since the passing of LKY, we have felt threatened by Hsien Loong's misuse of his position and influence over the Singapore government and its agencies to drive his personal agenda.feedback

Lee Hsien Yang

I am very disappointed that my siblings have chosen to issue a statement publicizing private family matters. Since my father's passing in March 2015, as the eldest son I have tried my best to resolve the issues among us within the family, out of respect for our parents.feedback

Catherine Lim

This new, very acrimonious development of the feud, is likely to unfold further, and probably in unexpected ways, over the coming months.feedback

Lee Hsien Yang

We are concerned that the system has few checks and balances to prevent the abuse of government. We feel big brother omnipresent. We feel hugely uncomfortable and closely monitored in our own country.feedback

Jorge Sampaoli

There's the possibility that there's two central defenders with one back up. The defence of the team are the 10 players, just as the match against Brazil showed. The variety of attackers lets us experiment with the varieties against Singapore. We have many offensive players and we will have to see how they play with the defensive part of the team.feedback

Ilian Mihov

We are a bit afraid that if we set up a campus in China, it will be very Chinese. Certainly, it's under threat ... and I think right now we have to watch what happens with Brexit ... we have to watch what happens between China and the Unite States.feedback

Ilian Mihov

The interesting thing is that it's a global increasing demand for our MBA here because many of the Americans, Europeans, Latin Americans ... they want exposure to Asia. It is quite possible that within the next 10 years, Asia will be 50 percent of our revenues of what we do in terms of executive education (and) MBAs. And probably will grow further.feedback

Jorge Sampaoli

It's important to know how enthusiastic they are at trying to win the ball back when we lose possession. It's all about the development of our ideas for every position in the future.feedback

Jorge Sampaoli

They were carrying over a lot of games (from the season just ended), so I think it was the right decision to let them go. It would have been very risky to let them play now.feedback

Yu Xin

No one really rode bicycles in Singapore, but the government wanted to encourage cycling to reduce congestion and promote healthier living.feedback

Dan McFarland

It's a good challenge. It is exciting from my point of view, a first Test match as a coach, so my expectations of intensity are pretty high.feedback

Dan McFarland

As far as the game itself is concerned, Italy have shown the kind of rugby they can play. The have not always got the results their ability has merited, we expect them to be playing at a high level so we will have to play at a higher level to beat it.feedback

Dan McFarland

You want to put yourself under pressure, you want to do something different. In the same way that guys who like to climb mountains don't just want to climb Ben Nevis every day, they are going to test themselves on something else, something more difficult; they don't whinge when Mount Everest is put in front of them. The bigger the challenge, the bigger the story afterwards. You can see in the players that feeling of anticipation that comes from representing your country.feedback

William Lee

It's not the type of culture you want to create. You want to create a culture that's much more enhancing, where people are able to talk on the way to the office, on the way to the meetings. So the tall buildings and the elevators, socially you're supposed to be pretty silent. People don't want to walk beyond four stories.feedback

William Lee

Half the leaders believe that the campus needs to be much more open to the community for the company to survive for the next 50-100 years. There's another thought where tech companies have a lot of intellectual property and therefore, to protect that, you can't have a free-flowing campus. A lot of the Microsoft campuses have a strong balance of both.feedback

Robin Hu - Temasek Holdings

If you are sitting on the board, whether as a director or an independent director, you must be caring about not just profit, but also the community that you belong to. You can not be a sustainable business if you are doing harm to the world around you. Sustainability is not a cost. It's actually a growth driver.feedback

Scott Pruitt

It was not a political decision. It was a right for this country, Chuck. This is a decision that was right for this country from a jobs perspective, an economy perspective, and an environmental perspective. But not Paris. Paris represents a bad deal for this country. It "contributes to climate change.feedback
