Derivative in infinite polynomial ring

I am defining my ring as R.<x>=InfinitePolynomialRing(QQ), and this should give me ring with variables x[1],x[2],... etc. right? Now I want to differentiate a polynomial with respect to x[1] variable. So I defined f=x[1]^3 (for example). I am trying f.derivative(x[1]) but that does not work. It shows " 'typeerror': argument 'var' has incorrect type (expected sage.rings.polynomial.multi_polynomial_libsingular.MPolynomial_libsingular, got InfinitePolynomial_dense)." Can someone please explain what is wrong and what I should do to fix it?
