BBC F1 pit lane reporter Tom Clarkson speaks to McLaren's physiotherapist, Mikey Collier, about how drivers prepared for the extreme heat and humidity of the Singapore Grand Prix.

Jenson Button retired on lap 53 having made his way up to seventh, while team-mate Kevin Magnussen finished tenth despite complaining that his drinking water had become so hot it was burning his mouth.
