Marina Bay, Singapore
The Singapore Grand Prix is one of the highlights of the F1 calendar and the upcoming 10th edition will be no different when it returns in September 2018.
Since its debut in 2008, the Singapore Grand Prix has earned itself the title of ‘the jewel in the Formula One crown’ thanks to its combination of gripping race action and an all-day entertainment programme of concerts and lifestyle offerings.
The Singapore sporting fixture also stands out for its night-time race slot and its spectacular circuit, which winds around the Marina Bay. Such a setting provides a perfect opportunity for charterers to take in the thrilling event from the comfort of a luxury charter yacht.
Yacht-goers soaking up the on-shore happenings from this perspective are treated to the best views in the house as the world-class racers roar along the picturesque waterfront stretch.
At last year’s edition, Lewis Hamilton notched up his 60th Grand Prix win as he found himself leading from fifth on the grid after the two Ferraris tangled with Max Verstappen’s Red Bull on the sprint to Turn 1.
The contract for the Singapore leg of the F1 World Championship has now been extended for four more years, from 2018 to 2021. All eyes will be on the British driver to see if he can replicate his winning form at the upcoming meet and edge ever closer to Michael Schumacher's record 91 wins.
