The Singapore Grand Prix is a motor racing event which forms part of the Formula One World Championship. The event takes place at the Marina Bay Street Circuit and was the inaugural night race and first street circuit in Asia designed for Formula One races. The original Singapore Grand Prix was held at Thomson Road from 1966 to 1973, before returning to the calendar in 2008 at Marina Bay. Fernando Alonso won the inaugural Formula One edition of the renewed Grand Prix, driving for the Renault team. First organized in 1961, the race was initially known as the Orient Year Grand Prix, located at the Thomson Road Grand Prix circuit. It was renamed to the Singapore Grand Prix in 1966, shortly after Singapore became a sovereign country in 1965. 

The event was discontinued after 1973 and a variety of reasons have been suggested, including an increase in traffic, the very high danger and unsuitability of the track for racing, the inconvenience of having to close roads for the event and fatal accidents during the 1972 and 1973 races.Since its inception, Marina Bay has been known for featuring at least one safety car in every race edition, with a total of 21 safety car deployments as of 2019. The Singapore Grand Prix has been considered to be one of the most challenging and unique tracks on the Formula One calendar. In 2022, a contract extension was announced which will put the race on the Formula One calendar until at least 2028.


The Formula One Singapore Grand Prix weekend starts on Friday September 30th with two practice sessions for the drivers FP1 starts at 15:30 pm IST and FP2 starts at 18:30 pm IST. The next day starts with free practice 3 at 15:30 pm IST and is followed by the qualifying.
