Singapore Grand Prix 2023: What's The Hype?

The Night Race

The Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix, the first and most exciting night race on the Formula 1 calendar, is a truly unique experience. The race takes place under the lights of the Marina Bay Street Circuit, and it's an incredibly electric event. The whole city practically vibes to any F1 beats, and you’ll feel the thrill on the streets. The lights of the city skyline create a stunning backdrop for the race, and the atmosphere is electric. Given that it’s closer to the end of the season, the excitement builds further, though with Max Verstappen running away with the title, it’ll be all about the second spot this time!

In 2023, the lineup includes Post Malone, Robbie Williams, Boy George, Kings of Leon, The Kooks, Groove Armada, and 88rising.

The Food

Singapore is a foodie's paradise, and there's no better place to sample the city's culinary delights than at the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix. There are food stalls and restaurants all over the circuit, serving up everything from traditional Singaporean dishes to international cuisine. You can find everything from hawker food to Michelin-starred restaurants, so you're sure to find something to your taste. China Town, Little India, Arab Town are localities dominated by the eponymous ethnicities while Telok Ayer Street is a great place to try Peranakan food - a mix of Chinese and Malay. Head to Dempsey Hill and Ann Siang Hill, two adjacent neighborhoods in the heart of Singapore, for their trendy restaurants and bars.

The Atmosphere

The Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix is an incredibly exciting and vibrant event, and the atmosphere is electric. The fans are passionate and knowledgeable, and a melting pot of cultures. The stands are packed with fans, and the noise level is deafening. Almost more than the race cars! With food stalls, beer gardens and open air performances happening during the race too, it’s a carnival all weekend. If you don’t mind skipping the grandstands and walk-abouts for a practice session or the qualifiers, we highly recommend waiting in line, strategically, at the Singapore Flyer (Asia's largest giant Ferris wheel), to get a bird’s eye view of the part of the session. It is phenomenal. Not the race though, that is best from trackside!

The Location

Singapore is a beautiful city with a lot to offer visitors. There are plenty of things to see and do outside of the race, from exploring the city's many historical landmarks to relaxing on one of its many beaches. If you're looking for a city break with a difference, then Singapore is the perfect place for you. From Sentosa and Merlion to the aquarium and zoo, there’s lots for the whole family!

The Marina Bay Circuit is a street circuit that winds through the heart of Singapore's downtown area. The track offers a unique challenge to the drivers, with tight corners and fast straights. It's a demanding circuit that requires precision and skill to navigate. The circuit is also known for its stunning views of the city skyline, especially at night when the track is illuminated by thousands of lights.

How do I select the right seats?

Hungarian Grand Prix

The Marina Bay Street Circuit is divided into 4 zones; which essentially control your entry and movement around the track. The more expensive grandstand/premier walkabout tickets, offer access to all 4 zones; while the others limit your access to one/two zones only. Hence, picking the right zone is important!

If you want to save up on money, all the grandstands in Zone 4 are relatively cheaper, and won't leave you as broke 😛

The only permanent grandstand at the circuit, the Bay Grandstand is both: the biggest and the cheapest. This grandstand is colour-coded, and defies the general rule of; sit higher for a better view. Here, do not sit higher than row 30, that's the only rule.

If you sit in the Dark Blue Zone, you can see Turns 16-17 clearly, and if you sit in the Light/Dark Green Zone, you can see Turns 18-19 well. Pick your view.

This Grandstand has 7 sections, A1-A7, located between Turns 7 and 8. Turn 7 is one which provides a ton of overtaking opportunities, so a seat in the lower-numbered sections is guarenteed to get you a view of this. Sitting on the other end, and high up in the rows, will give you access to Turns 8 and 14 - even though just slightly. Choose your seats!

Located on the inside of the circuit between Turns 9 and 10, the best sections here are the ones closest to the corners. Which ones are these? Low-numbered A sections for Turn 9, and high-numbered sections for Turn 10. If you want watch hard-core racing, we wouldn't recommend this stand. Although, if you're here for the post-race concert, these are the best seats to be in!
