The action moves to our Marina Bay circuit from 25-27 Sep 09.

Will the Brawns continue their winning steak? Will we see another Piquet? How would the Driver's championship shape up? Let's discuss in this thread.

Latest news: Santander will continue to sponsor McLaren, despite signing up to sponsor Ferarri in 2010.

wahahaa.. exciting.. all the barriers are 95% up.

But don't expect free views. They put up these green canvas covers to act as shields.

Yeah, will terminate the sports package after the Abu Dhabi race. Need to do it 7 days before the next billing cycle.

Then take on again, for 2010 season. ;p

Saw somewhere that Nikon is sponsoring the "live" telecast? What was the arrangement last year?

I do hope that Brawn can continue their winning form. Strong team.

Another Piquet? Think you are referring to another incident like Piquet's ie crashing out to allow his team mate win. I think any crash in this circuit will raise suspicion of that. I am sure the drivers are trying hard not to crash out. But then in a night race I think there is a good chance of a crash.

Force India esp Sutil is strong. I do hope that he can be one of the front runners, maybe even a podium place.

As for McLiaren, they really have their ups and downs (mostly downs) this season. Lewis is not at all the top driver he is made out to be.

I think Brawn (Barichello and Button), Ferrari (Kimi), Force India (Sutil), Renault (Alonso) and McLaren (Lewis) will be likely contenders for podium in Singapore.

I don't think Sutil will be strong in Singapore. The main reason is because in Spa-Francorchamps and Monza, the track characteristics favoured engine power more than other circuits around the world, and Monza required you to run as low downforce as you could.

I expect Red Bull to struggle in Singapore again as this type of street track doesn't suit them well and plays into the hands of the KERS cars.

eh... but BMW Sauber found a buyer in the eleventh hour and managed to secure the entry as the 14th team. however, current regulations state that there should not be more than 13 teams on the grid.

hmmm... 1Malaysia F1 Team... interesting. everything will be based in Malaysia. cars will be made by Malaysians in Malaysia. probably they are getting those Proton mechanics to construct the car :bsmilie:

and since the car is gonna be built by Malaysians... confirm sure can get a lot of bodykit add-ons to the car :thumbsup:

we all see how they perform next year lah.

Ya. Hope they don't get last.. Like Alex Yoong, former Minardi F1 driver from Malaysia, who failed to qualify for 3 races in 2002 season because he was too slow in qualifying.

Starsports always praise him. They use the phrase above except for the last part...

Ya Star Sports employs Alex now so they are silent on his inadequacies. Alex should not be harsh on slow drivers.....he is probably even slower than any of them. Star Sports should try to get more creditable drivers to be in the commentary ... but then again they have this guy called Steve Slater... sigh. Sometimes he makes the most stupid comments. Tries too hard to be technical and tries to comment like he is in the driver seat.
