Dubbed as the original F1 night race, Singapore’s Grand Prix is Asia’s only street race on the Formula 1 calendar. The on-track street race action on the streets and backdrop of the picturesque Marina Bay Street Circuit sees over a quarter million spectators annually. It’s been watched by more than 930 million viewers worldwide since 2008.

This will be the last Singapore GP race that four-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel will compete in as he announced his retirement from Formula 1. Vettel won the SGP in 2019 racing for Ferrari, although this year he is racing under his current team Aston Martin.

Last January, it was announced that Singapore will continue to host the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix for another seven years. This would be the fourth contract renewal for Singapore, and the seven-year extension is the longest for the race to date in the F1 franchise’s recent history.
