Nico Hulkenberg believes Force India can set its sights on tackling Williams in the Singapore Grand Prix, but believes it will be embroiled in another tight mid-field battle.

Having returned to the top ten with a seventh place finish in the Italian Grand Prix, Hulkenberg comes to Singapore with a minor update for his B-specification Force India VJM08 which he believes will keep it well in the hunt around the street circuit.

Indeed, though Hulkenberg anticipates Red Bull will be a stronger contender than usual this weekend, he is confident Force India will have the measure of Williams.

"I see Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull at the front and hard to beat, but behind that it is us battling with Lotus, Toro Rosso and maybe McLaren. I think it will be close behind those three teams."
