The Singapore Grand Prix is a night Formula One race held at Marina Bay Street Circuit.  Bet on it!Location and Circuit Details:

During the 1960s and 1970s, the Singapore Grand Prix was held at Thomson Road. However, since 2008, the Prix has regularly been held at Marina Bay Street Circuit. The circuit is a tricky and twisty one, with close proximity to the walls forcing the drivers to be more cautious. The top speeds are the highest at the end of the first circuit, thus making it the right portion of the track for overtaking the opponents. With 90 degree turns and high variability, the track is a great test of a driver's experience and skill set.

Spanish driver Carlos Sainz won the event. This is a first Ferrari victory this year and it ended the Max Verstappen's 10 race winning streak. Verstappen ended up coming in fifth. Lando Norris, driving for McLaren finished second while Lewis Hamilton, driving for Mercedes, finished 3rd.
