Singapore to continue hosting Formula 1 Grand Prix until 2021

Sunday, 17 Sep, 2017

Yes, Formula One is in Singapore and at the Marina Bay circuit for the 14th race of the 2017 season.

The 10th installment of the Singapore Grand Prix has begun, and it looks like Red Bull Racing may have the edge over their rivals.

McLaren's Fernando Alonso on Thursday said he wanted to win with whichever Formula 1 team he races for in 2018.

As per the strategic goal of holding a race in Asia at a time that suits European markets, the Singapore Grand Prix will begin at 1pm on Sunday, September 17.

Meanwhile, Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton will enter the race this Sunday with a slim three-point lead over Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, but he thinks he's going to have a "difficult weekend".

Safety cars often contribute to the length of the Singapore Grand Prix - there still has not been a Grand Prix in Singapore where the safety auto has not had to emerge from the pits. So far the only night race I have done was in Bahrain, but this will obviously be very different as it is on a street circuit.

The data from the control units are sent in real-time to the track-side, pit lane and worldwide factories, where mission control departments will utilize the information to help race teams improve performance and strategy, Rhodes said.

"Maybe we don't have the best package for this weekend, but we still have a great vehicle".

“Our focus as of today is making sure that the 21 races next year is everything as it can be.

It will not be easy to take maximum points this weekend though - no team has ever taken a one-two in Singapore, and Kimi Raikkonen is now on a barren run of 88 races without a victory.
