Who has won the most Singapore Grand Prix races?
"It is particularly important that Honda, one of the main manufacturers in the motor industry and a company that has played an important role in the history of motorsport, will still be in Formula 1 for years to come".
This weekend Lewis Hamilton and Sebastien Vettel duke it out in Marina Bay for the Singapore Grand Prix.
The Indian Grand Prix went off the calendar after three editions from 2011, largely due to the serious financial problems faced by promoter Jaypee Group and the red tape around the event.
"The Singapore Grand Prix is a signature Formula 1 race and therefore we are very pleased that it will continue to feature on the calendar for a further four years".
The night race around the streets of the south-east Asian city state made its debut in 2008 and has become one of the blue riband events of the season. I am looking forward to the race, although I know it will be very hot and humid, which makes it one of the most hard tracks. Aside from being a street race, the Singapore GP is also known for holding a strong line-up of concerts as well as other entertainment shows.
"With its global viewership and media coverage, the race has reinforced Singapore's image as a vibrant and innovative city to a wide worldwide audience".
Singapore has considerable appeal as a popular tourist destination, with about "40 to 50 percent of visitors (to the race) from overseas", said Lionel Yeo, the chief executive of Singapore's tourism board.
