Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix Preview: Tyres, DRS, Weather and Session Times

The Formula One Singapore Grand Prix will take place on Sunday at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. First held in 2008, this is F1's only night race, taking place under 1,600 light projectors which line the entire course.

Their combined energy usage is 3,180,000 watts and the circuit is illuminated four times brighter than an average sports stadium under floodlights.

Maybe Greenpeace should have turned up here instead of Spa?

Every driver to have won the race is still in F1 today. Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel have two wins apiece, while Lewis Hamilton has a single victory to his name.

The humidity and constant stream of corners makes this one of the most challenging races of the year for the drivers, and the circuit itself isn't the most thrilling on the calendar.

But one rarely reads a negative review written by a fan who has attended the event. The spectacle is probably matched only by Monaco.

Just make sure you have a good exit strategy after the race if you're going. There's a Justin Bieber concert starting not long after the podium celebration.

Read on for a track guide, tyre and DRS information and the all-important weather forecast.
