The race weekend
2011 Singapore Grand Prix preview – Alonso out to postpone Vettel?óÔé¼Ôäós championship party
How Vettel can win the title in Singapore – A top-three finish could see Vettel claim the title with five rounds to spare.
2011 F1 championship points – Full drivers and teams points standings heading into this weekend’s race.
The following changes to the usual driver line-up will be made for first practice only:
Narain Karthikeyan will drive Vitantonio Liuzzi’s car at HRT.
Pirelli are bringing the soft (yellow colouring) and super-soft (red colouring) for this weekend’s race.
Three-times F1 race winner Heinz-Harald Frentzen if the drivers’ advisor to the stewards this weekend.
He joins Gert Ennser, a member of Germany’s motor sports body, and world motor sport council member Radovan Novak on the stewards’ panel.
The Marina Bay circuit is hosting the Singapore Grand Prix for the fourth time this year.
The track introduced night racing to Formula 1, but its first race in 2008 will forever be tainted by memories of the notorious race-fixing perpetuated by Renault to ease Fernando Alonso’s path to victory.
He made amends for it last year with a top-draw performance to win again. Lewis Hamilton is the only other driver to have tasted success here, winning for McLaren in 2009.
The circuit is long, punctuated by frequent braking zones for seemingly never-ending sequences of corners. The hot, tough race takes nigh on two hours to complete.
