After long negotiations throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, the FIA agreed in principal to the first ever night race to be held in Singapore in 2007. The first race took place in 2008, using a bespoke, state-of-the-art lighting system to light up the 5.065km of Marina Bay Circuit.
The Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix was the first street race in Asia and the first ever Formula 1 night race.
Set against the backdrop of downtown Singapore, drivers and spectators alike will get a glimpse of the exotic garden city as the circuit winds past an intriguing blend of historic landmarks such as the City Hall and modern-day buildings such as the iconic Esplanade.
All eyes will be on the technically challenging circuit that will test drivers and their cars as they are likely to reach a maximum speed in excess of 300 km per hour.
A new 1.2km road that forms eastern section of the circuit was constructed alongside the pit building.
With strategically located grandstands and hospitality suites, spectators will be assured of a great view of the action and an unforgettable F1 experience.
