For years, Spa-Francorchamps was the circuit F1 drivers take longest to complete a lap of. But changes to Singapore means it now takes a second longer than Spa for the F1 cars to lap.
The Singapore Grand Prix was short on action but big on spectacle. I particularly love this picture of Timo Glock flying through the air at the turn 10 chicane. See below for a hi res version of this picture and over 70 others from F1’s second night race at Singapore.
Lewis Hamilton took his second victory of 2009 in dominant fashion in the Singapore Grand Prix.
Earlier in the weekend Fernando Alonso was doing everything he could to rebuff questions about the scandal he and Renault were embroiled in.
