  • Singapore to host F1 World Championship until 2021

"The Singapore race is clearly a signature race... it's also our gateway into Asia which is important for our future and our growth", Carey said on Friday.

Here are some glimpses of the most spectacular Grand Prix.

"We wanted to thoroughly evaluate the medium-term prospects for F1 and the value a term extension could bring to Singapore", said Iswaran.

That makes the Marina Bay Street Circuit the most physically demanding race of the season.

Singapore is new territory for me, but I don't mind that at all.

Maroon 5 to Perform at Rock in Rio Festival
Rock in Rio, which starts Friday, is to feature Maroon 5, Fergie, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Guns N' Roses. The pain is typically accompanied by extreme fatigue, mood, memory and sleep problems. "It's hard", Gaga reportedly said .


Speaking at the event, he said: "We haven't concluded a deal yet, but we're having positive discussions and it is certainly our goal to try and reach a deal that works for both of us". In next three to four years, we can take the sport to a place that is good for all our partners and really adds new level of excitement and dimension to the sport.

With this year being the tenth straight F1 Night Race in Singapore, it has been a landmark event in the country every year - with its races, parties and grand music performances.

Singapore has considerable appeal as a popular tourist destination, with about "40 to 50 percent of visitors (to the race) from overseas", said Lionel Yeo, the chief executive of Singapore's tourism board.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel arrives for practice at the Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore this week. The kerbs are high and harsh, the road is extremely bumpy in certain locations, and despite the race taking place at night, heat can play a huge role.
