The Singapore F1 race continues to be a strong focal point for tourists, global events and business meetings.

We have decided to continue hosting the F1 race for another seven years, after thoroughly evaluating the long-term benefits that a term extension could bring to Singapore.

The joint statement also stressed that the stakeholders would work with the various government agencies to ensure the health and safety of all participants, staff, local and overseas fans and the community.

Overseas visitors generally comprise 40% of race-goers here and the race weekend contributes about $130-M annually in tourism receipts. against an estimated $100-M in cost annually.
