A special feature of each Formula One season since 2008 has been the Singapore Night Race. The Singapore Grand Prix was first held on the 28 September 2008 on the Marina Bay Street Circuit specially constructed for this purpose.


The race is run in an anticlockwise direction and encompasses a circuit length of 5.067 km. 70 % of the circuit is on public streets and roads. The race starts at 8:00 p.m. local time, and numerous spotlights fitted at a height of 10 m illuminate the course. The permanent sections of the circuit are of German design.


Winners of the Grand Prix have been Sebastian Vettel on three occasions (2011 to 2013) and two wins each for Fernando Alonso (2008, 2010) and Lewis Hamilton (2009, 2014).


Formula Libra was already held on a street circuit within Singapore from 1966 to 1973. This motorsport event was known as the Malaysian Grand Prix until Singapore became independent in 1965. The race was ultimately discontinued at this time for safety reasons.
