Circuit Length: 4.928 km
Race Distance: 310.464 km
The Marina Bay Street Circuit first hosted the Singapore Grand Prix in 2018, which was the first night race in the history of the sporting event. The circuit is known to have one of the longest pit lanes and slowest speeds, which along with the humid climate, makes it one of the toughest races in the F1 calendar.
The 2023 Singapore GP is set to race on a modified track with fewer turns and a longer straight, making it a whole new racing experience. Book your Singapore GP 2023 tickets now to be the first to witness this edge-of-the-seat racing event on the new track!
Singapore Grand Prix 2023 Seating Plan
Catch most of the Singapore GP’s racing action from the Pit Grandstand which has views to the main straight as well as the pit lanes. These are also one of the best seats to enjoy the pre-race and post-race events.
What to Expect:
• Truly spectacular views of pitlane activities
• View of the long main straight can get somewhat boring after a bit
Super Pit Grandstand
Enjoy the panaromic views of the race from the Super Pit Grandstand, located on the higher rows of the Pit Grandstand. Placed right across the team garages, the grandstand brings you some of the best parts of the race including the starting grid, the pit stops, and the finish line.
What to Expect:
• Similar views of the race as from the Pit Grandstand, minus the having-to-crane-your-neck to observe off-track action
• Easy access to the exciting post-race track invasion
Turn 1 Grandstand
Watch all the action that happens at the first few turns of every lap from the Turn 1 Grandstand, with direct views to turns 1, 2, and 3.
What to Expect:
• Some great action of the first turns of the race
• Somewhat unidirectional view of the approaching cars as they navigate the turns
Turn 2 Grandstand
Get a close watch on the start and finish of every lap and some of the pit action from the Turn 2 Grandstand. From here you will get to see the cars approaching turn 1 and a glimpse of turns 2 and 3.
What to Expect:
• Similar to the views from the Turn 1 Grandstand, with the added bonus of watching the start/finish clearly with the cars approaching directly (as well as some pit action)
• Not the clearest views of Turns 2 and 3
Grab a view of the Nicoll Highway straight and a 90-degree turn at either end, within a pocket-friendly budget at the Stamford Grandstand.
What to Expect:
• A far yet clear view of the cars navigating some tricky 90-degree turns
• Not the greatest choice for weekend tickets as the view can get monotonous after a bit
Get some of the best high-speed racing and braking action along the Esplanade Drive and the tighter turn at T14 while seated at the Connaught Grandstand.
What to Expect:
• Awesome speeding and braking action
• Not a ton of overtaking action, however, despite the speeding
The North Beach grandstand offers a view of the vehicles exiting Turn 11 and entering Turn 12. Over the course of the weekend, concerts by well-known performers will also be shown on the video screens at Hard Rock Beach Club.
What to Expect:
• Great and easy access to the post-race concerts that the Singapore GP is known for
• Once again, great on-track views of speeding and braking
Watch the cars as they speed up from T11 and get cornered at T12, right in front of the Empress Grandstand at the Marina Bay Street Circuit.
What to Expect:
• The cars speeding and maneouvering tight corners
• Well-rounded views at a super budget-friendly price
Zone 4 Walkabout
Zone 4 of the Singapore F1 GP is one of the most popular (and budget-friendly!) sections for race fans, thanks to its Walkabout seating that offers a unique viewing experience. Located just outside Turn 13, this area provides thrill seekers with not only an up-close look at some of the fastest cars in racing but also a chance to see all of the action on the main straight.
What to Expect:
• Possibility of overtakes with close-up views of cars heading right at you
• Having to do some searching to find the perfect spot at the walkabout for you, as views are drastically different here
Which Grandstand Should You Go For?
1. For an Awesome View of the First Lap
Turn 2 Grandstand: Turn 1 is a sharp right-hander, immediately followed by a left-hand hairpin at Turn 2. This makes it one of the most challenging sections of the track, with the potential for plenty of overtaking and incidents.
2. For the Best Overtaking Spot
Zone 4 Walkabout: The straight in Zone 4 is also a designated DRS zone, which means that drivers can activate their car's DRS to increase their top speed and make overtaking easier. This adds an extra element of excitement to the overtaking battles in this area.
3. For a Budget Buy
Empress Grandstand: The Empress Grandstand at the Singapore Grand Prix is often considered a good budget buy because it offers a good view of the track at a more affordable price than some of the other grandstands.
4. For the Best View of the Final Stretch
Turn 2 Grandstand: Turn 23 is the final corner of the track before the start-finish straight, and the Turn 2 Grandstand offers a great view of this corner. This is a crucial point in the race, as drivers will be pushing hard to get a good run onto the straight and try to make a pass on their rivals.
5. For a Hair's Breadth Distance from the Track
General Admission: General admission areas typically offer a range of different vantage points, including standing areas and elevated viewing platforms. This can allow fans to see the cars from a variety of angles and get a better sense of the speed and power of the cars.
6. For the Picture-Perfect Shot
Pit Grandstand: The Pit Grandstand is located just opposite the pit lane, which means that you'll be incredibly close to the cars as they enter and exit the pits. This can provide some great photo opportunities, especially if you have a good camera with a zoom lens.

Unforgettable Singapore GP Moments
Alonso Being a Good Samaritan
Webber's car had already retired from the race, but he wanted to make it back to the pits to participate in the post-race podium ceremony. Alonso, who was in second place at the time, noticed Webber and offered him a lift on his car.
Massa's Unfortunate Pit Stop Error
Massa was leading the race and had a comfortable margin over his closest rival, Lewis Hamilton, when he came into the pits for a routine stop. However, as he left the pit lane, the fuel hose was still attached to his car and he dragged it down the pit lane, causing fuel to spill out onto the track. The Ferrari mechanics were frantically trying to detach the hose, but they were unable to do so before Massa had already driven away.
Vettel's Unlikely Victory
Sebastian Vettel managed to secure an impressive victory despite not starting from pole position. The Ferrari driver was able to clinch the win after his closest rival, Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes, suffered an unexpected setback during the race.
The Controversial Crashgate
Alonso, a two-time Formula One World Champion, was involved in the infamous "crashgate" scandal during the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix. The incident occurred when Alonso's teammate Nelson Piquet Jr. was instructed by Renault team management to deliberately crash his car in order to bring out a safety car, which allowed Alonso to gain an advantage on the rest of the field by making an early pit stop.
