The Singapore Grand Prix will once again brighten the night sky in 2021 for another running of the Marina Bay Street Circuit. The first track to host a night-race, the 2021 season will see it joined by the Bahrain Grand Prix and the new Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2021

A physically demanding track, the Marina Bay Circuit forces drivers to test their limits across 5.063km of bumpy street surface coupled with humid conditions. Initially planned out by Herman Tilke and since refined by KBR Inc, the event has become a standout on the F1 calendar thanks to drivers having to navigate slower sections and long straights in a harbourside location similar to the Monaco Grand Prix.

The first race to be run entirely at night under floodlights in 2008 in order to allow the European audience to watch at a suitable hour, the track was initially criticized by drivers for being too bumpy and too physically demanding, as they lost as much as 3kg over the course of a race.

Since then minor changes have been made in 2009, while 2013 saw the Singapore Sling chicane replaced with a conventional left-hander. Turn 18, which sees drivers pass underneath a grandstand, remains untouched while still delivering one of the most unique experiences in modern day F1.

The Singapore Grand Prix 2020

Unfortunately the race was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2019 event saw Sebastian Vettel claim his 14th and final victory with Ferrari. The German started behind Charles Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton but passed both of his rivals via the undercut after an earlier pitstop.

Leclerc finished the race second, making it the first time a team has finished 1-2 at Singapore since the race was introduced in 2008. Max Verstappen rounded out the podium as Hamilton pitted later than his rivals, resulting in a fourth place finish.

When is the 2021 Singapore Grand Prix on the F1 calendar?
The Singapore Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on the weekend of October 1-3 and is provisionally set to be the 16th race of the Formula 1 season. The first two free practice sessions will take place on October 1 with qualifying on Saturday October 2 at 15:00 CET.

What time does the Singapore Grand Prix start?
The Singapore Grand Prix starts on Sunday October 3, 2021 at 14:00 CET. The race can be followed live on RacingNews365’s live blog and via television on Fox Sports Channels.
