Revised Formula 1 circuit layout from 2023, track to no longer include Bay Grandstand

SINGAPORE — The Marina Bay Street Circuit will look a little different next year when Formula 1 returns to Singapore. 

The 2022 edition of the race was won by Mexican Sergio Perez, after a slow burner, rain-delayed race interrupted by two safety cars and five virtual safety car periods. The race was called at its two-hour time limit after 59 of 61 laps.

Tickets for the event sold out, with about 302,000 fans attending the three-day event. It marked the largest attendance since the first night race in 2008 where 300,000 were in attendance.

The last edition of the race, held in 2019, drew 268,000 spectators.

The Singapore Grand Prix was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

A contract was signed in January 2022 for Singapore to host the F1 Grand Prix for another seven years — the longest extension for the race to date.

Tickets for the 2023 edition of the Singapore Grand Prix are available at the race organiser’s website and authorised ticketing agents.

The tickets include various grandstand offerings, priced from S$298 to S$1,788, as well as combination packages that range from S$798 to S$1,088. CNA
