Eh? Do you think so? Just look at Singapore. It is small, overcrowded and the streets are narrow. Worst of all, they are not meant for racing. They have never been designed for fast moving vehicles to travel on and when we are talking about the GP, we are talking about super fast vehicles. Even those road legal super cars are considered slow when we are comparing them against those vehicles meant for the tracks. So now, they come up with an brilliant idea to host the F1 show in Singapore at night. Yes, it is a night race. Again, imagine driving a super fast vehicle at night when there will be at least a little less visibility. Sure you will have flood lights but are they really that good for drivers? I am sure that there are a number of drivers who will still find problems driving at night.
How about the racing fans? People come to F1 shows to watch fast moving racing cars. They want excitement. They want speed. They want all the fancy vehicles. But the show is at night. And due to the road conditions and the visibility of the area, I am sure that the drivers will be driving slower than what they usually do if it was held in the day. Oh, and how about the road? Are they used to the narrow, winding roads in Singapore? After driving in big open spaces in real race tracks in other countries, we would want them to drive their vehicles on roads surrounded by buildings, malls, overheard bridges and big circular things called the Flyer? I think even those drivers used to street circuits will find Singapore streets rather different from what they have driven on before. And this will definitely impact on the excitement in the show.
Well, let’s hope for the best. We have 4 more years to go. If this time the show isn’t exciting enough, perhaps our million dollar ministers can think up of better ideas to make the show more exciting next year. I am sure that they are definitely free enough to think of such things, considering that they don’t do much after all. And they are the best talent money can buy. Now if they can’t think of brilliant ideas to help Singapore succeed, nobody can.
