The Course

Unlike most American auto races, where cars follow a circular track, Formula 1 courses vary from venue to venue. Singapore’s Grand Prix is especially interesting for two reasons: Like competitions in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi, the race is held at night; and, like the Monaco event, the race is held on city streets, earning it the designation of “the Monaco of the East.” The Marina Bay Street Circuit is also walking distance from top-tier hotels like the Pan Pacific (where Infiniti Red Bull Racing stays) and the Mandarin Oriental, which hosts F1 pool parties and other events throughout the weekend.
