The Singapore Grand Prix will be on the Formula 1 calendar for at least 7 more years, announced on Thursday.

Though there were no races at the Marina Bay Street Circuit in the two previous seasons, Formula 1 is set to visit the streets of Singapore until 2028 after the contract has been extended.

The F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali reacted to the announcement: “I am delighted that Formula 1 will continue to race in Singapore for another seven years.

“The Marina Bay Street Circuit hosted the first night race in F1 history in 2008, and Singapore has continued to thrill fans, teams, and drivers ever since. Singapore holds a special place on the F1 calendar, and this extension is part of our long-term commitment to continue to grow the sport in Asia.

“The plans that are in place to reduce the carbon footprint of the event are impressive and align with our plans to be Net Zero Carbon as a sport by 2030 and I look forward to continuing our successful relationship with Singapore GP and the Singapore Tourism Board as Formula 1 returns to this incredible city.”

The Singapore GP chairman¬†Mr. Ong Beng Seng also shared his thoughts: “We are very pleased that the night race will continue for seven more years. After more than a decade of celebrating this spectacular event on the racing calendar, we are looking forward to building on its success and working with Formula 1 as well as its partners to take the night race to greater heights. We are delighted that this marquee event will demonstrate how Singapore is open for business.

“We look forward to welcoming both local and overseas fans and visitors to the Marina Bay Street Circuit once again.”
