Singapore Grand Prix: Circuit to host race until at least 2021

Lewis Hamilton has been breaking records during the last few grands prix, but breaking a record is the last thing Renault's Nico Hulkenberg will want to do this weekend.

"The Singapore race is clearly a signature race.it's also our gateway into Asia which is important for our future and our growth", F1 chief Chase Carey told reporters.

The motorsport series came under new ownership this year when the US sports and entertainment firm Liberty Media bought out investment fund CVC Capital Partners, and Carey ended Bernie Ecclestone's reign lasting almost 40 years.

It will be extremely tough for India to find a way back on the ever-crowded F1 calendar with more countries showing interest in hosting the high-profile race.

A heavy downpour hit the circuit with four hours before the scheduled start of the Grand Prix, with the rain delaying the supporting Porsche Supercup race due to track conditions being unsuitable for racing.

"Maybe we don't have the best package for this weekend, but we still have a great vehicle".

"Our focus as of today is making sure that the 21 races next year is everything as it can be". The only night race on the calendar will continue until 2021. We pushed pretty hard but, unfortunately, we don't have much balance here.

"We're in the early days of the plans we have for the future", Carey said. But Asian in general is tremendously important.

In the past, F1 has been criticised for striking one side deals heavily in their favour with local race promoters not getting enough out of the millions of dollars they cough up as hosting fees. "We're all looking forward to working together with all the teams and manufacturers to make our sport more exciting and spectacular for the fans all over the world".
