Four races free-to-air in new French F1 deal

The race is organised by the government together with Singapore GP.

Back in November 2016, then F1 boss Bernie Eccelestone, said that Singapore was no longer interested in hosting the annual race as it has become a destination hotspot, achieving its original goal. A chance for Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen or Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas, fresh from signing a new contract this week, to seal their future place in history?

Following the demise of the Malaysian Grand Prix, which will be held for the last time on 1 October, it will be the only race in the region. Hamilton has won three of the last four races.

Safety cars often contribute to the length of the Singapore Grand Prix - there still has not been a Grand Prix in Singapore where the safety vehicle has not had to emerge from the pits.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel arrives for practice at the Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore this week. So far the only night race I have done was in Bahrain, but this will obviously be very different as it is on a street circuit. In the three races he's had with the team at the circuit, he has always been on the podium.

It is also a pivotal weekend in the constructor's championship at Marina Bay.

Aside from the data experiment, which is aimed at enhancing the human ability to make better decisions, aerodynamic designs and the relationship between software efficiency and a car's cooling systems are some of F1's other technological advancements, Rhodes said.

“Our focus as of today is making sure that the 21 races next year is everything as it can be. He is now sixth in the point standings and been retired in six different races this year.
