Singapore Grand Prix – Racing Track History

Formula 1 Singapore

The Singapore Grand Prix is an action-filled series of races. In case you have had any questions about the race, we have compiled a few frequently asked ones for your information. We hope that this helps you to understand better the F1 Singapore races.

Where is the Singapore Grand Prix located?

The Marina Bay Street Circuit, or the Singapore Street Circuit, is located all across the Singapore Marina Bay. The track is 5.075 kilometers long in a harbor side location – very similar to the Valencia Street Circuit and the Monaco Grand Prix. The design bears the KBR Inc. name, being a slight modification of the original one proposed by Tilke Herman.

When was the Marina Bay Street Circuit built?

Marine Bay Singapore race was first founded in 1961, but the present-day racetrack dates back to 2007, a year before the inclusion of the Singapore Grand Prix into the Formula One World Championship. The first race organized in Singapore was initially known as the Orient Year Grand Prix, being renamed in 1962 in the Malaysian Grand Prix. Singapore attained its well-sought independence three years later and it finally got its present-day name.

The year 1973 marked the cancellation of the event due to a number of reasons, including the very high danger of the track and its unsuitability, the increase in traffic and the inconvenience of having to close all roads for the event.

How long did it take to construct Marina Bay circuit?
Grand Prix Singapore track

The Marina Bay Street Circuit for formula 1 Singapore had become notorious for including dangerous corners and bumpy roads. In response to this, in the year 2009 the Marina Bay Circuit had undergone changes. By the following year, the chicane was removed and replaced to ensure a smoother driving experience.

Kerbs were lowered in order to preserve the security of Formula One Singapore drivers. The entrance of the pit lane was also modified as well as Turn 1, 7, and 10. These turns were given specific names such as Benjamin Henry Sheares, Memorial, and Singapore Sling. Names were given to provide warning of the dangerous road conditions.

The Singapore Grand Prix will take place at the Marina Bay street circuit at least until 2018, when the F1 validation expires.

This Year’s Formula 1 Singapore And Winning Chances

This year’s 2018 Singapore Grand Prix will be taking place in Singapore City on the Marina Bay Circuit. The dates for these action-packed races are Friday, September 14th till Sunday, September 16th. The main competitors for the 2018 race are Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, and Lewis Hamilton.

While all drivers are excellent competing forces, Singapore Grand Prix results can be predicted. There is a great chance that Sebastian Vettel may walk away as the Singapore Grand Prix winner. This is predicted because of his consistent track record of consecutive wins dating back to 2011. Since Vettel joined the Ferrari team, there has been an increase of recorded wins.

We believe that there will be a close tie between Hamilton and Vettel, although the former has dominated the Singapore event in recent years. Our bet is on Lewis Hamilton this year, but you will get better odds on Vettel.
