2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix Break
Singapore has been a venue for many non-championship motor races since the 60s and 70s, but it wasn’t until 2008 that a World Championship Grand Prix Event was staged here. The Marina Bay Street Circuit had the privilege of hosting the first ever Formula 1 race to be held at night, with the city's famous skyline providing a spetacular backdrop to a truly magnificent circuit. This created an amazing experience for those in attendance but more importantly mean't that the event could be broadcast at a more convenient time for European Television audiences. The inaugural night race instantly established itself as one of the most dramatic and atmospheric races on the calender following the never to be forgotten controversy which saw Nelson Piquet Jr. deliberately crash to allow teammate Fernando Alonso to win the race. 2015 saw Sebastian Vettel win the Singapore Grand Prix for the fourth time to help secure Ferrari’s first double-podium of the season. Vettel led from start to finish and showed expert professionalism dealing with the safety cars as the field bunched. What happened behind him was much more interesting with Lewis Hamilton being one of six casualties, which also numbered Button, Alonso, Hulkenburg, Grosjean and Massa.
Despite only being part of the F1 schedule for the last 7 years, the Singapore Grand Prix is a date fixed firmly in the calendar of many F1 fans. With the race being held at night, this city track uses more than 1,500 light projectors each with 2,000-watt white metal halide lamps, giving it luminosity of over four times that of a football stadium. The 5.065km race track will see drivers tackling the likes of the Singapore Sling and Memorial Corner. Whilst the drivers concentrate on the track, spectators can enjoy the sight of the cars flying past the city’s landmarks, including City Hall and St. Andrews’ Cathedral. With the track being based right in the city, it offers the opportunity for F1 enthusiasts to really make the most of their time in Asia, by getting out an exploring all Singapore has to offer.
