    Amid reports that Valencia has signed a deal for a Mediterranean Grand Prix in 2009, it is now expected that Singapore could as early as Friday formally announce its inclusion on the formula one calendar of next year.

    On Thursday, the authoritative local newspaper Straits Times said the contract could be unveiled later this week, as Mark Webber prepares to jet into the Asian city-state to test drive the proposed layout for the street circuit.

    The announcement could, however, be delayed until next week, the newspaper added.


    The inaugural Singapore Grand Prix, likely to take place either in April or August next season, is to be the first confirmed night-time race for the sport, but nearby events in Melbourne and Malaysia are tipped to also take place under floodlights in 2008.

    An unnamed source close to the Singapore negotiations told the publication: "There are just a few loose ends left in the deal to tie up."

    The pitstop can't be around the Marina Square area. The permanent stands for the National Day parade are facing the other way (into the waterfront). There's no place to build a pitlane anymore.

    My guess is that the pitlane would either be one direction of the Esplanade bridge or by the side of the Padang.

    Although I like to watch F1 but I think F1 in our own backyard is a no no. They should try out other racing before going into F1(F3 or lower). Especially with so many tight corner, over taking are very risky and might result in some serious damage. Furthermore during the night, so dangerous too. Although it will bring in a lot of money, but will we benefit? (Lower tax, more rebates etc..???) Therefore, I think they need to plan it wisely before implement it else I forsee more problems.....

    A straight road race without overtaking and accidents is not a race..

    They might run A1GP also since we have a team.

    Some of the cornering too sharp, in my own view. Drift might be able to handle it be for a F1,
