Singapore landmark for Formula One

The first night race in Formula One (F1) history will take place in Singapore from September 26th – 28th.

It is also one of only three races to be run anti-clockwise this season, as drivers speed their way around 61 laps of the 24-turn circuit in the city”s Marina Bay.

Drivers have had their practice schedule specially extended for the night event to allow the teams extra time to adjust to the new conditions.

The Singapore Grand Prix is also the ever first race to be held on a street circuit in Asia, alongside old favourite Monaco and this year”s European Grand Prix in Valencia, Spain.

At last week”s dramatic Italian Grand Prix at Monza, the Championship really heated up, with British driver Lewis Hamilton seeing his lead trimmed to just a single point.

However, the real story was Toro Rosso”s Sebastian Vettel becoming F1”s youngest ever winner, giving his team its first victory with a faultless performance.

Current world champion Kimi Raikkonen says "it will take a miracle" to retain his title, but commentators suggest this year”s Ferrari car might be suited to the heat and humidity of Singapore.

"The atmosphere will be very exciting", said the Finn.
