Singapore GP: preview vid

All the F1 drivers will no doubt have spent many hours on their teams’ simulators running up to this weekend’s first ever night race, the Singapore GP.

Very rarely do we ever get to see this in action as they’re usually kept behind closed doors, but if you go to the Williams site you’ll be able to see Nico Rosberg completing his first laps of the new track. Interesting stuff.

Wow, that was pretty cool! This track looks rather difficult with a lot of tricky corners, although there should be overtaking possibilites. It will be a very exciting race I think. Especially if those rain showers they’re worried about rolls in and spices things up. We’d better not have any aggressive passing moves though as the FIA will surely strike down hard.

Cool video, i’d love one of those in my house (wouldn’t we all)

Yeah loads of slow speed corners but with the straights before and after them it should make for some entertainment. Would love the showers to come just to make it a bit more exciting.

Think this track will swim, unlike Valencia which categorically sank!!

P.S. who designed this track??

I think the race should be exciting enough without rain. If it does start to pour, I can’t see any way around red flagging sessions. Visibility is poor at best during daytime races, I can’t imagine what it would be like at night.

Anyway, should be interesting nonetheless.

Will be an interesting race even if it’s a procession. Sundays forecast is currently: 31c A shower or thunderstorm around in the evening; otherwise, mostly cloudy

Simulator has moved on a lot since I last saw one. Very interesting.

Living in Singapore myself, the skies have been looking rather overcast these past few days. There really is a high chance that it will rain – and rain hard – this weekend.

One of my suggestions over on 606 was to do away with the floodlights and put some headlights on the cars :) hehe

despite another dud circuit, there should be a proper deluge to liven things up.
