A Battle for the Ages, and the Return of the Honey Badger at the Hungaroring

The Singapore Grand Prix is one of the most famous races on the calendar, for several reasons:

  1. It’s one of the most challenging street races 
  2. It takes place under the lights of the Marina Bay Street Circuit
  3. The race weekend concerts are EVERYTHING. This year’s lineup includes Post Malone, Robbie Williams, Kings of Leon, and more!
  4. Sebastian Vettel won his last ever race here in 2019

The Singapore Grand Prix offers a tight and twisty layout, with extremely tight corners and fast straights. The humid climate makes it even more challenging for drivers. The circuit demands precision and skill in a way that very few circuits do. With the added bonus of the stunning Singapore skyline. 

Going into this race, Max is 145 points ahead of his teammate in the Drivers’ Championship, and Red Bull Racing is a whopping 310 points ahead of Mercedes in the Constructors’ Championship. While Ferrari has finally taken over Aston Martin for P3 in the standings, will they make it stick? Or will Ferrari’s strategy be the cause of their downfall, again? 

Among all this, no positive news yet on Daniel Ricciardo’s return as he recovers from a hand injury. Hopefully, we’ll hear soon. But all eyes on the Red Bull garage this time, to see what they have up their sleeve.

About the Track

The Marina Bay Street Circuit’s bumpy street surface is not easy to drive on (as we’ve established before) and is extremely physically demanding. While the 2023 layout has 19 corners instead of 23, the drivers still have to work the wheel a fair bit and stand to lose as much as 3 kgs over the course of the race. 

Most drivers often look forward to the race as it is a challenge they relish. High-track temperatures, fast corners, and a beautiful skyline — what’s not to like? Ready to watch the magic unfold?

With the track bringing in lots of excitement at Singapore and being one of the night races EVERYONE looks forward to, there’s lots to do and lots more to look forward to. Like the fact that if Max Verstappen wins this race, he could win the championship as early as Suzuka. For real! 

Off the Track

If you’re here for more than just the race, you pick the right one. The Singapore GP is known for being a proper party with the best line-up of entertainment. This year is no different with Post Malone, Robbie Williams, Boy George, Kings of Leon, The Kooks, Groove Armada and 88rising all set to take center stage. 

Make sure you check the schedule as there are performances across the three days, before and after the on-track action. 

See you at the races!
