14-16 September - How will the weather affect this year's Singapore Grand Prix?

The Singapore Grand Prix 2018 is the most anticipated motor race appearing on the FIA Formula One World Championship calendar. This happens annually, taking place under the city lights of the beautiful Marina Bay Street Circuit. This Marine Bay Singapore race has brought together crowds far and wide ever since it was founded back in 1961. Formally known as Orient Year Grand Prix, it had gone through a few reforms.

The race was briefly discontinued in 1973 for numerous reasons including its high danger risks and even an increase of fatal accidents. Later the race was included in a five-year agreement with Singapore GP Pte Ltd, Bernie Ecclestone, and the Singapore Tourism Board. Since then, the Singapore Grand Prix has become the home of the best racers – even for GP Singapore.

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
