We wish all F1™ teams and drivers a great Singapore Grand Prix™ weekend. F1™ has escaped the European fall and started the overseas countdown towards the championship final with eight races left.

The inaugural Singapore Grand Prix ™, held in 2008, was the first night race and first Asian street race in Formula One™ history. Temperatures around 33° Celsius and humidity around 85% make it a challenge for everyone.

Due to the night schedule, teams and drivers don’t even change their watches to local time (6 hours ahead of “Neuschwansteiner-time”), everyone works at night and sleeps during the day. Hotels have learned since 2008, and now most rooms have darkening curtains or blinds and restaurants are now open at night as well, so the F1™ fraternity and 80,000 spectators alike can still enjoy the fabulous varieties of Singapore’s cuisine after the on-track-sessions.

Of course Singapore also has a great nightlife, crowned during the GP-week with the best F1™ parties. We wish our friend Sonia Irvine and her entire team from Amber Lounge a very successful and fabulous week! They start with exciting news and their incredible Fashion Show with F1™ drivers, including our friend, the beautiful and fast Carmen Jorda.

Miss Universe Singapore will be unveiled for the first time ever at the Amber Lounge Fashion Show.
