Singapore Grand Prix gets new four-year F1 deal

Formula One: Vettel on pole in Singapore, Hamilton fifth

Despite the Marina Bay circuit being one of the most hard tracks, Williams head to Singapore hoping for a "good result" under the lights.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo holds the single lap record in-race in Singapore and was a standout on the first day of practice.

Qualifying will be on Saturday, Sept. 16, and motorsports fans in the United States can watch it live on CNBC at 9 a.m. ET.

After a three-race points scoring stint which started at his home race in Montreal, Stroll's efforts were fruitless in Great-Britain, Hungary and Belgium. The Australian has never won the race, however, with Nico Rosberg, Sebastian Vettel and Hamilton splitting the last three editions. We can still be in the mix. We want to make sure we are delivering better and bigger events, ” he added.

However, he wasn't the only royal entering reception with Maud Windsor joining her distant cousin at Thomas's School in Battersea. And fortunately for Kate, there will be plenty more school runs to do - and, of course, plenty more first days of school.

"We are incredibly happy to announce this extension and very proud of our partnership", F1 chief executive Chase Carey said at a news conference at the racetrack.

"But it is a very challenging circuit here, getting the set-up right, getting the timing right, understanding the tyres".

The fact Mercedes have struggled on high down force circuits this year gives him even more confidence heading into the weekend.

The Formula One circus is heading east after the end of the season's European leg. Lewis Hamilton takes the championship lead into a race for the first time this season as the drivers do battle under the lights of Marina Bay as the Singapore Grand Prix celebrates its tenth anniversary.
