Warm nights, racing under lights, trackside parties galore, the hottest acts on stage, all against the backdrop of one of the world’s great cities – it could only be the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix.
This year’s 11th edition was one of the best yet, with now five-time F1 World Champion, Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, taking his fourth win at Marina Bay, as the fireworks erupted down the main straight and the crowds went wild. Australian Daniel Ricciardo started and finished sixth for Red Bull Racing, a tough race in his last season with the team before joining Renault next year.
On-track, fans were treated to stunning night racing – with F1, as well as competitive sportscar series Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific and Porsche Carrera Cup Asia. Off-track, we saw epic live performances from 27 acts, featuring headliners Martin Garrix, The Killers, Liam Gallagher, Jay Chou, Dua Lipa, and Simply Red.
Of course, plans for F1’s original night race in 2019 are already underway – with more to see and do around Circuit Park – while changes to the F1 cars are expected to make the competition even closer, with an intense three-way battle at the front expected between top teams Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull.
Naturally, you can expect 2019’s entertainment line-up to make news when it’s released, with past headline acts at the event including Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Kylie Minogue, The Killers, Robbie Williams, Bon Jovi, Linkin Park, and Jennifer Lopez. There’s something for everyone.
And it’s an easy event for Australians, with just a short flight from all major capital cities – making it easy on annual leave for a quick getaway with the lot, including unlimited dining, shopping and relaxation options just beyond Circuit Park. Plus, you can enjoy up to 33 per cent in savings if you buy Super Early Bird tickets before November 15, 2018.
The Formula 1 2019 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix will be held from September 20–22, with tickets available at singaporegp.sg.
