Singapore F1 Grand Prix 2017

With this year being the tenth straight F1 Night Race in Singapore, it has been a landmark event in the country every year - with its races, parties and grand music performances.

Who has won the most Singapore Grand Prix races?

Singapore joined the schedule in 2008 as the sport's inaugural night race, and in 2012 penned an extension through to 2017.

Ticket sales fell past year to around 73,000 for each of the three days of the race weekend.

France has enshrined in law that big sporting events must be free-to-air, so the French Grand Prix fits into that category.

What time does the race start?

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel arrives for practice at the Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore this week.

As the race is held on a street circuit, it could be properly illuminated during the evening, with demand for tickets remaining high.

But Vettel won't have things all his own way this weekend - the track will also suit Red Bull, and Daniel Ricciardo is also a specialist of Singapore.

The data from the control units are sent in real-time to the track-side, pit lane and worldwide factories, where mission control departments will utilize the information to help race teams improve performance and strategy, Rhodes said.

Sergio Perez is another driver to look out for - he has finished in the points on each of his six visits to Singapore.

"Maybe we don't have the best package for this weekend, but we still have a great vehicle".

Ricciardo finished second in this race the last two years. He is now sixth in the point standings and been retired in six different races this year.
