Singapore to continue hosting Formula 1 Grand Prix until 2021

Share

Formula 1 season moves to Asia pacific leg of the calendar and this weekend we will have much celebrated Singapore Grand Prix from 15th September to 17th September at the Marin Bay Circuit.

"It is a circuit that we have found hard to master".

Sebastian Vettel heads to the Marina Bay street circuit this weekend as favourite to bounce back from a crushing Monza defeat with victory under the lights in Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix. "Asia and the Americas are truly unique opportunities for us".

Nether-the-less, Vandoorne is hoping the safety vehicle, which has made an appearance in all of the previous nine Singapore Grand Prix, can aid their chances of advancing their positions, but he feels the team can secure what would only be their second two-car points finish of 2017. Yes, Formula One is in Singapore and at the Marina Bay circuit for the 14th race of the 2017 season.

It is also because the Republic is keen to see where the sport will go after the expiry of a Concorde Agreement in 2020.

"India is a country that certainly has great potential and as we go forward, we will continue to study".

But the Red Bulls, like Ferrari, have been doing very well on the low-speed circuits demanding maximum downforce so we have priced the Red Bulls drivers accordingly.

A key player in that equation could be team-mate Valtteri Bottas. The 30-year-old dropped to three points behind Hamilton with seven of the 20 races still to run but can regain the lead on Sunday. Verstappen has just one top-3 finish on the year.

As we have seen throughout this calendar, there can be no questions over the Finn's commitment to the cause, whereas across the paddock, Kimi Raikkonen has shown signs of frustration in being forced to tow the party line.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo topped the timesheets in both sessions, and teammate Max Verstappen was never far behind.

Mercedes AMG Petronas and Scuderia Ferrari have been the two dominant teams in Formula One (F1) so far this season and they are expected to battle it out again at the annual night race this weekend.

First practice takes place at 8.30am (UK time) on Friday, with the second practice at 1.30pm the same day.

F1 chief Chase Carey, who described the Singapore night race as a signature event, said: "In the next three to four years, we can really take F1 to a place that is good for all our partners and add a new level of excitement and new dimensions to the sport".
