Formula 1 moves to Asia for the world famous and first ever night race!

The Singtel Singapore Grand Prix
24, 25, 26 September 2010

http://www.singaporegp.sg/index.php

Circuit park and race track map
http://www.singaporegp.sg/ticket/pdf/2010_circuit_park_map.pdf

Track lighting will be provided by Valerio Maioli S.p.a.from Italy as every year from 2008

On board with Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel (2009)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ox3nMIpgWGk

10 categories of tickets are already fully sold out.

This race might be a turning point in the 2010 World Driver Championship after Fernando Alonso and Ferrari's win at Monza and Mark Webber being ahead of Lewis Hamilton for the title by 5 points, Alonso being right behind followed by Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel.

1 Mark Webber Aus Red Bull-Renault 187
2 Lewis Hamilton GB McLaren-Mercedes 182

Will Jenson and Lewis be able to make up points and be ahead by making a 1-2 in Singapore?

Hamilton said: "We head into the weekend with renewed confidence following some positive tests and some developments in the wind tunnel."
Let's hope he is right!



This will be a great race on a fantastic track, street racing at its best, though a lot less fast than Monza.
I wish I could be there in person rather than having to watch it on a screen. It makes a world of difference being there.

Night view from my room at the Fairmont (only at the wrong time) with the track below my balcony.



Go Singapore!!!!!!

Thanks for opening the thread.

I really like the track itself, but I don't really see the need to drive it during night though. Too much hype around it.

I reckon we will see RBR back in front as their package should suit this track like a glove. Mclaren will do their best to ruin RBR's plans.
I think Ferrari got a huge boost at Monza which will see Alonso being pretty agressive this weekend to make sure he will be able to close the gap to the front even more. Alonso has the will and experience to do it as well.

Heidfeld back in business on his favourite track, so lets see what he's able to deliver. Good luck to him.

Our friends from Oz will be happy going forward as they don't need to walk around like zombies at work the coming monday's.  



When in doubt, flat out!

Actually this race is at a worse time than all the European races. Unless you're on the west coast of Australia then the race won't start till midnight on the east cost as we're 2 hours ahead of Singapore. Thankfully for me, it's a public holiday on Monday so I can stay up and watch it.

Here's a list of how many engines each driver has used. Of all the championship runners, Webber has only used 6 engines putting him in the best place to avoid a penalty over the remaining races.

Ferrari drivers have already used all their engines. It will be interesting to see if they can hold until the end of the season with their 8th ones! If not, then a 10-place penalty on the grid might have an impact on the championship battle.

They won't last. Alonso will have to take a grid penalty before the season is out. I suspect Ferrari will take a tactical decision on it and would expect it to come around Korea. But it would all depend on results.

F1 2010 the game = Awesome.

Like "Yay I'm playing a game!" awesome or "This must be exactly what it's like to drive an F1 minus the g-force" awesome? I recently got the Ferrari Virtual Academy game, it's just a simple pack with the current F10 and the Fiorano track, but the graphics, car and track model, physics, and sound are amazing. They had benchmark laps set by Massa and Alonso in the game and a contest where the 5 fastest drivers overall in the game will get a free trip to the Ferrari driving experience at the real Fiorano, so I thought I could compete but despite many laps I'm still about 7 tenths slower than Massa's record which is a full second slower than the top times by other people  . Even when the game is as realistic as it is, there are still little loopholes to exploit in the physics for better lap times like hooking the inside tire over a curb to get a little more speed in a corner without getting a flat or spinning as you would in real life or throwing the car into a 4 wheel drift under braking with rear biased brakes so that you can get a better corner entry angle.

Anyway, this race is going to be fascinating. At this point my greatest wish for the season is that it keeps getting closer and closer, as I like the teams and drivers involved so really it doesn't matter who wins (with the big exception of Vettel, I'd be fine with him retiring from the next 5 races). IIRC, we've had 3 drivers capable of winning the title going into the last race several times in the past (2007 and 1986 come to mind) but have we ever had 4 or even 5 drivers within a race win of the points lead going into the final event? It would be spectacular if that were to happen, especially if we have some good on track battles in the next 5 rounds. The last race at Monza was the perfect result for the title chase with the 2 guys at the bottom of the 5 contenders finishing 1-2, so I'd like to see more success from Alonso and Jenson this weekend, along with Mark handing Seb his immature butt on a plate so he can be the definitive team leader.

A final note- I dug up an old copy of Enzo Ferrari's autobiography, published in 1963, and there was a very interesting section about team orders that provides perspective on what took place with his team in Germany this year, clearly the old man was rolling in his grave at that race and at the Austrian GP in 2002, and clearly there was a lot more honor involved in the sport in the dangerous days of the 1950s and early 1960s-

"One can give one's drivers an idea as to how the team should work together, above all one can make suggestions, but I have never believed it possible to give actual orders, because I have raced myself and have never forgotten that my greatest ambition- one that prompted me to take risks up to the point of foolhardiness- was to catch up or even overtake one of my own teammates and thus appear as the best, the most willing, and most deserving driver in the eyes of my employer. It is ridiculous to think it possible to arrange the order of the finish beforehand, just as the stories about this or that manufacturer having done so are all rubbish. There may be an occasional instance in which this is possible, but it must be rare... I should consider it almost humiliating to have to restrict a driver to a specific place in the classification only because the so-called team leader has to earn a certain number of points. I consider all drivers are team leaders, that the team leader changes with every weekend's racing. Whoever wins, whether through luck or skill, I consider as the team's number one man for that day. I have never looked with favor on any member of my team considering himself above the others, and I simply cannot allow any acknowledgment of such superiority. There are moments, of course, when the World Championship is at stake; but even then I do not really bother much about an order of finish that would ensure points for my driver who is in the best position. Instead, what I do is to try to get my men to reason and appreciate how pernicious the effects on all of us would be of an internal rivalry, which might well destroy all the work we had done together throughout the season."

Latest news:

Race promoter Singapore GP is delighted to announce that the 2010 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX is a sell-out.
All released tickets were sold out late on Thursday afternoon and the online ticketing service was shut down, although a few hundred tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis at selected gates around the Marina Bay Street Circuit on Friday morning.
The number of tickets available for each of the three days of the event was 81,350 per day, or approximately 244,000 over the race weekend.

The drivers will be racing to a full house.

I wonder how much longer Interlagos has left, the facilities are worse than what Silverstone had before it's upgrade, I'm sure Bernie is gunning for it to be either renovated or dumped for another venue. It's a shame really because all these new Tilke tracks are as boring, nothing interesting or capitvating about them at all. His butchery of the Österreichring should have sounded alarm bells.

well... I listen to a Buenos Aires public radio station via the internet every day. In the news there is frequent talk about a possible upcoming of a Grand Prix in a place named San Luis.

this is a relevant link in English. I am sure our friend EZEIZA will give us more details on this.

Maybe they will keep both Interlagos and Argentina races. I am not sure how they will fit in all these new races now we have a GP in Korea and maybe other new ones coming up in the future.

I am all for reopening San Marino as it is easily accessible from here! Ah the good old days!!!

Come on, Bernie give us back Imola!!!!!

I haven't read through the entire thread, but I highly doubt F1 will be back in the near future, and even if it did, I can't see it anywhere but in Buenos Aires. Not because of the track itslef, but because in order to move the entire circus you need much better infrastructure, more hotels, better transposrtation, etc. , something only Buenos Aires could (barely) handle right now.

I am confident though that some day the Argentina GP will be back, and if it's not in Buenos Aires, even better, so I'll have to do some travelling to go to the track 

About Singapore, I guess that we'll start seeing the first candidates lose most chances here. One DNF of any of the top 5 and their WDC is pretty much over. And statistically, at least one of them will have trouble. However, I thought Alonso's chances were over ages ago, and yet everything happened in order for him to be still up there, so predicting too much at this stage is useless!

is this race at the normal Eurpean time?
