Calling all F1 enthusiasts! The Singapore leg of the Formula 1 World Championships will be held at the Marina Bay Street Circuit on September 21-23, 2012. The entire Singapore Marina Bay Area is brimming with activity right now as this city-state prepares itself for one of the biggest sporting events of the year. Here’s a quick guide to this year’s Singapore Grand Prix Weekend.
Drivers Rankings and Race Highlights
This year, crowd favourites Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen are currently ranked overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively after last week’s Italian Grand Prix. Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber from Red Bull-Renault occupy 4th and 5th positions, with their team currently in the 1st place for the Constructors’ Championship.
The McLaren team is currently in 2nd place for Constructors’ Championships, whether will they overtake Red Bull-Renault and win the championship remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, Alonso is determined to “put out a perfect display right to the end” for Singapore, putting the Ferrari team in a good contending position to overtake McLaren’s 2nd placing in the Constructors’ Championships. The Spaniard who has currently been conservative in the past few races vows to drive more offensively and extend his lead over Hamilton and Raikkonen. On top of that, the sheer combined challenge of a night AND street circuit makes the Singapore leg of the F1 World Championships an exciting race that simply cannot be missed.
