The long-awaited Singapore Grand Prix is only a few days away and the fans can’t wait to see more action on the track unfold. With the Singapore GP in just a few days, we should have a look into its history and creation. The Marina Bay street circuit was built in 2008 and its first grand Prix was hosted in the same year as well.
The track was designed by Herman Tilke and was later refined by KBR Inc. The track’s unique quality is that it uses the astonishing famous skyline of the city as its backdrop making it a beautiful track and a gem in the F1 calendar.
The fans cannot wait for the Singapore Grand Prix and are counting down the days until the race, which will probably seal Max Verstappen’s second world title in his career. However, the sport of F1 is unpredictable, there could be an upset this time as well and there could be a possibility that Max will have to race all the remaining 6 races to claim the championship.
