Singapore Grand Prix gets new four-year F1 deal

Singapore is new territory for me, but I don't mind that at all. "We've certainly got stronger and stronger and I think at the high down force circuits this year we've been pretty good and getting better".

Singapore will host a grand prix until at least 2021 after signing a new contract with Formula 1.

The German equaled that rather unfortunate record last time out at Monza, so failure to land a podium in Singapore would mean that Hulkenberg will have made his 129th Grand Prix start without a single podium to his name.

Essential to building the world's fastest vehicles, Formula One technology has been sought-after by various global industries and is closely monitored by racing fans who attend the annual Singapore event, which was Asia's first-ever street circuit.

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.

"The first ever night race in this sport is one of the most thrilling events of the year, taking place against the stunning backdrop of Marina Bay".

"We are looking forward to offering our continued support to make the next four years even more spectacular and exciting". Vettel has four wins this year with five runner-up finishes. The Formula One Group have agreed a deal with French television channel TF1 to show four full races exclusively free-to-air, with the rest of the 2018 season continuing as highlights.
