Singapore Grand Prix’s roots go as far back as 1961, when it was known as the Orient Year Grand Prix. A year later, it was named Malaysia Grand Prix, before being changed to Singapore Grand Prix in 1965 when the republic gained its independence. It was however discontinued from 1973 for a variety of reasons. 

In November 2007, the Singapore telecommunications company, SingTel, announced its sponsorship of the event, leading to the first Formula One SingTel Singapore Grand Prix in 2008, resurrected after more than 30 decades of absence in the international motorsports arena.

Marina Bay Street Circuit - The Heart of The F1 Action

Also known as the Singapore Street Circuit, the Marina Bay Street Circuit is Singapore’s street-based F1 circuit around the city state's Marina Bay. Measuring 5.1km long with 23 turns, its harbourside picturesque location has been compared to the likes of Monaco’s and Valencia’s circuits. One of the few anti-clockwise circuits in F1, the whole circuit is brilliantly illuminated using 108 power cables connecting 12 twin-power generators to 1600 light projectors.

The track starts from an empty plot of land just off Republic Boulevard, and runs underneath the Benjamin Sheares Bridge right through to Republic Boulevard and on to Raffles Boulevard. It then proceeds along Nicoll Highway, Stamford Road, Saint Andrew’s Road, and on to the Anderson Bridge, before turning left into Esplanade Drive right through to the starting point via the Singapore Flyer. The track is unique in the sense that between turns number 18 and 19, the racing track goes underneath a section of the grandstand at The Float.
