Singapore Grand Prix: Circuit to host race until at least 2021

In 2015, the average was 87,000 and the highest was 100,000 in 2008 when the first Singapore Grand Prix was hosted.

"We look forward to the continued support of all Singaporeans as we work with Formula 1, Singapore GP, and all stakeholders, to ensure the F1 Singapore Grand Prix remains an event that we can all be proud of", said the Minister.

Liberty Media had taken complete control of F1 in January, ending Bernie Ecclestone's 40-year reign at the helm of affairs.

McLaren's Fernando Alonso on Thursday said he wanted to win with whichever Formula 1 team he races for in 2018. Besides India, Korea is another country that could not survive in F1 for long.


The future of the race on the island nation was hotly contested over the past year amid declining attendance rates, but officials recently announced a four-year extension. We are pretty full schedule right now. "It is truly a unique opportunity for us to reach out to new fans around the world", said Carey.

Formula One chiefs are in Singapore for Sunday's grand prix - the 10th edition of the night race through the city-state's streets.

Carry said the sport's revamp has already started.

"It is particularly important that Honda, one of the main manufacturers in the motor industry and a company that has played an important role in the history of motorsport, will still be in Formula 1 for years to come". It is still early days. "As always, I am hoping we can have a good result". "We want to make sure we are delivering better and bigger events", he added.
