Singapore's Grand Prix event is notable for being the only night races in the Formula One calendar.
Like the races in Monaco, this Grand Prix will be held on the streets, specifically in the Marina Bay area. By scheduling the races after dark, though, the F1 in Singapore really makes history.
The organizers hired lighting company Valerio Maioli to create a cutting-edge illumination system that replicates daylight conditions.
The Marina Bay circuit is 3.14 miles in length – the circuit’s 61 laps add up to an overall race length of 192 miles. The circuit has 14 left-hand turns and 10-right hand turns, with overtaking opportunities at the Raffles Boulevard turn and the Esplanade Drive turn.
The circuit’s pit area stands on a lot just off Republic Boulevard. The circuit then proceeds over the Benjamin Sheares Bridge to Republic Boulevard, turning through Raffles Boulevard and powering through Nicoll Highway, Stamford Road and St. Andrew's Road past the Padang and City Hall.
The circuit then proceeds up the Anderson Bridge, passing the Fullerton Hotel to make a tight left turn towards Esplanade Drive.
It will proceed to Raffles Avenue, turning right after the Esplanade, zooming to the Marina Bay Floating Stadium to complete the circuit.
The circuit takes the drivers through some of Singapore’s best tourist spots: shopping malls at Marina Bay, historic landmarks like City Hall, and entertainment venues like the Esplanade.
