The track

Marina Bay, 2011 Singapore Grand Prix
Marina Bay, 2011 Singapore Grand Prix

The Marina Bay circuit is hosting the Singapore Grand Prix for the fourth time this year.

The track introduced night racing to Formula 1, but its first race in 2008 will forever be tainted by memories of the notorious race-fixing perpetuated by Renault to ease Fernando Alonso’s path to victory.

He made amends for it last year with a top-draw performance to win again. Lewis Hamilton is the only other driver to have tasted success here, winning for McLaren in 2009.

The circuit is long, punctuated by frequent braking zones for seemingly never-ending sequences of corners. The hot, tough race takes nigh on two hours to complete.

2010 Singapore Grand Prix highlights

Pole position, fastest lap and leading every lap: no, this wasn’t another of Sebastian Vettel’s routs, it was Fernando Alonso who dominated last year’s Singapore Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton retired after tangling with Mark Webber, who made it to the end of the race despite wheel damage on his Red Bull.

2010 Singapore Grand Prix – Alonso holds back Vettel for close win

Hamilton: Webber was “in my blind spot” – Hamilton said “I didn?t even know he was still there.”

  1. Can’t wait for this, first time I’ll be able to watch the race live (I was working in Germany during last year’s race). :)

    Also, if anybody feels like winning a Singapore GP poster I’m giving one away on my blog :)

  2. If HRT are dropping Liuzzi here for P1.Then you’d have to think he’ll be the one missing out on the Indian GP?

    1. I wouldn’t necessarily read that into it. Depriving Ricciardo of the seat time on a demanding track he hasn’t driven on would be a poor decision.

      HRT haven’t confirmed yet which driver will be out for India.

      1. Yet, their decision for FP1 makes me worry.

    2. Liuzzi has experience of the circuit from past two years (although not much from the 2010 race) while Ricciardo hasn’t any so it’s logical that Ricciardo can drive both Friday FPs.

    3. Who knows, it might be a trade off. After all Liuzzi knows the track, Ricciardo doesn’t.
      So they can give Karthikeyan a bit of practice before inda without hampering the drivers to much.
      Liuzzi gives up some time here, Ricciardo gives up more time (a whole race weekend) in India.

  3. us tv times (eastern):

    practice 1: friday, 6:00 am, speed.com
    practice 2: friday, 9:30 am, speed tv

    1. wow time difference between this side & that side is 12 hours.

  4. Those Pirelli videos really do give you an appreciation of just how technical even the tyres need to be for Formula 1.
