Singapore Grand Prix gets new four-year F1 deal

A technical, bumpy and unforgiving circuit, the Marina Bay track has played host to several spectacular races in the past few years.

"Singapore is new territory for me, but I don't mind that at all", he says in Williams' race preview.

France has enshrined in law that big sporting events must be free-to-air, so the French Grand Prix fits into that category.

Vettel has been able to dominate this race, winning four times in his career. He has claimed victory under the lights four times in nine races and with the Singapore street circuit being a high downforce track, Vettel is going to have a big advantage over Hamilton, whose Mercedes team are anticipating a hard weekend.

The main reason for holding the Singapore Grand Prix at night was so an Asian race could be broadcast at lunchtime in the UK.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel arrives for practice at the Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore this week.

"The Singapore Grand Prix is a signature Formula 1 race and therefore we are very pleased that it will continue to feature on the calendar for a further four years", said F1 CEO Chase Carey. Hamilton has won three of the last four races.

Sergio Perez is another driver to look out for - he has finished in the points on each of his six visits to Singapore.

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

With this year's race taking place on Sunday, the event could have received no better boost than confirmation it will continue until at least 2021.
