"Maybe we deserve it at the end of Singapore," he said. "I'm looking forward to going there and to fight for the top position with all the other good drivers here, and I hope to stay with them."
The only man who can stop him is Luiz Razia, and the Brazilian admits that he's up against it this weekend.
"I didn't foresee that the championship situation would become so difficult," he conceded. "It is what it is, though.
"It's time to forget about Monza and concentrate on Singapore," he continued. "The title battle isn't yet over and I will give it my best shot – as I have done throughout the season."
Although this weekend's F1 Grand Prix of Singapore is a night race, the timings for the F1 and GP2 sessions will remain mostly close to their normal slots for European audiences.
Practice is on Friday at 4.45pm local time (9.45am BST), while qualifying will take place at 8pm local time (1pm BST). The 34-lap feature race is the biggest switch of the weekend's schedule, taking place on Saturday at 4pm local time (9am BST) instead of following the later F1 qualifying session.
The 24-lap sprint race on Sunday is at 4.10pm local time (9.10am BST.) All sessions are due to be carried live in the UK on Sky Sports F1
