Singapore GP

14 Sep 2018 - 16 Sep 2018

The Singapore Grand Prix is one of the newer races of the Formula 1 calendar, which made its debut in 2008 and is the first night Grand Prix of Formula 1.

The Track – Marina Bay Street Circuit

The street circuit is best known for its similarities with the Valencia Street Circuit and the iconic Circuit de Monaco. The track has undergone only minor changes since 2008, and the current version came into existence in 2015. The street circuit features 23 turns and with his tight racing lines, one could wheel-to-wheel racing, at least at the start of the Grand Prix.

Interestingly, the 5.065 km long track holds a unique record of featuring a safety car in every race since its debut in 2008.

First Winner

Fernando Alonso won the inaugural Grand Prix in 2008. However, that win was marred by controversy concerning the purposeful crash of Nelson Piquet Jr.

Drivers from Singapore

The current grid does not feature any driver from the island country.

Most successful drivers

Since 2008, only four drivers hold victories at the Singapore Grand Prix. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel is the most successful driver with four wins at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. Lewi’s Hamilton follows him in second with three wins while McLaren’s Fernando Alonso has two wins to his name.

Latest from the Singapore Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton won the last two races at Belgium and Italy and would want to make that three in a row at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. Furthermore, the Briton won the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix and is a strong favourite to repeat the feat once again with the Silver Arrows.

Sebastian Vettel finished fourth at the Italian Grand Prix and would be looking to bounce back and continue his charge towards the top the table. The German is the most successful driver here, and would be hoping to take the top step of the podium; a feat he had previously achieved in 2015 with Ferrari.

Red Bull and Mercedes are the most successful teams at this circuit and would be hoping that the 2018 Grand Prix would be their year once again.
