Singapore F1 Grand Prix Renewed For Seven Years

Formula One (F1) has announced a partnership extension with the Singapore GP Pte Ltd and the Singapore Tourism Board, seeing the Singapore Grand Prix remain in the city for a further seven years.

The partnership extension will see the event held at the Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore until at least 2028, after first being held in the city in 2008, with the 2022 edition to begin on 2 October.

Announcing the partnership extension, F1 said in a statement the partnership will have a heavy focus on sustainability with the increase of recycling efforts and using sustainable materials to reduce the carbon footprint of the event.

Formula One president and CEO, Stefano Domenicali, said he is excited to see the partnership reach 20 years, despite the event not being hosted for the past two F1 seasons due to COVID-19.

“I am delighted that Formula One will continue to race in Singapore for another seven years,” Domenicali said.

“The Marina Bay Street Circuit hosted the first night race in F1 history in 2008, and Singapore has continued to thrill fans, teams, and drivers ever since.

“Singapore holds a special place on the F1 calendar, and this extension is part of our long-term commitment to continue to grow the sport in Asia.

“The plans that are in place to reduce the carbon footprint of the event are impressive and align with our plans to be Net Zero Carbon as a sport by 2030 and I look forward to continuing our successful relationship with Singapore GP and the Singapore Tourism Board as Formula One returns to this incredible city,” he said.

Singapore GP chairman, Ong Beng Seng, said: “We are very pleased that the night race will continue for seven more years.”

“After more than a decade of celebrating this spectacular event on the racing calendar, we are looking forward to building on its success and working with Formula One as well as its partners to take the night race to greater heights.

“We are delighted that this marquee event will demonstrate how Singapore is open for business.

“We look forward to welcoming both local and overseas fans and visitors to the Marina Bay Street Circuit once again,” Ong Beng Seng said.
