None of those things have anything to do with the actual racing though.
The stop start nature of the Singapore circuit layout has been pretty crappy for producing any close racing so far (the only memorable moments have been crashes), at best i'd describe it as a night time Valencia.....
Aye, but between a poor race in the middle of nowhere, and a poor one that is well supported and has some local character, the latter is at least something to cheer about. We don't get much of that in modern Formula One!
With the street races like Singapore and Valencia, I have wondered if there's any desire to modify the layout. The contract for the race is presumably signed between Bernie and the city, rather than a promoter tied to any individual circuit, so it should be possible. They're limited to what they can design around the streets of Singapore, and moving to another part of the city would require a new pits/paddock area, and the FIA would have to approve a new layout of course. It just needs the willpower and a bit of extra funding.
I understand that, I just do not consider this a Grand Prix which should be run where it is, at the time it is. I have no issue in Singapore getting a Grand Prix, should be on a race track and run at 02:00PM local time.
Is there actually a race track in Singapore? Or room to build one? Genuine question, I'm intrigued.
I think you're fighting a valiant battle against decades of commercialism. I don't think there are any sports nowadays that don't change their start times to suit the television audience.
