Yes, its a big race involving multi-million dollar machines and drivers with serious skills. But Singapore’s Formula One Grand Prix is also about the enormous buzz of entertainment and parties that take place over the entire week.
Marina Bay Sands is in the thick of the action hosting an array of events and dedicated F1 celebrations ranging from world class entertainers, specially developed menus and race happy hours.
