Welcome to Singapore and here’s a little tip to help you enjoy the Singapore Grand Prix more.
1) In the short stretch between Turn 19 and 20, you can see the cars exit from under the Bay grandstand. Itself a a novel sight. But what’s better is the sight of the cars slipping and sliding precariously by the wall as the drivers step on the power on corner exit but struggling for grip.
2) The back straight between Turn 6 and 7 is the fastest part of the circuit. It’s a non-fan, non-ticketed area so the track is boarded up. But try to find somewhere to climb up (a tree?) to see the cars speed past with sparks trailing. At this place, you will be right by the track (I really mean RIGHT BY the track). You will FEEL the cars via your feet and you will ‘hear’ the cars with your heart. You have to be there to know what I mean. I imagine it is just like being at the Monaco tunnel.
3) Most of the overtaking takes place at Turn 7 so that’s where the action is.
Lastly, a thumbs up to the FIA for finally removing the Mickey Mouse chicane at Turn 10.
