Singapore GP

This weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix has become a popular stop for the Formula One paddock. It’s a modern-day classic despite its unusual timings as a night race.

Due to the high humidity the drivers lose up to three kilos in sweat during the race, so preparation is vital to maintain concentration amidst the looming street circuit barriers. The race’s susceptibility for safety cars also makes it one of the longest of the season, and it often finishes close to the FIA’s two hour time limit.

Good traction and car stability are vital for a good laptime due to the bumpy nature of the circuit but unlike other street circuits, overtaking is possible.
