Singapore Grand Prix: Circuit to host race until at least 2021

A man walks near decorations for the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix in Singapore on Wednesday

ESPN looks at all of the stats that you will need ahead of the crucial race weekend.

Who has won the most Singapore Grand Prix races?

Only four drivers have ever taken top spot on the podium - all of them drivers who were, or went on to be, world champions.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo topped the timesheets in both sessions, and teammate Max Verstappen was never far behind. It remains the only circuit on the calendar to have featured a safety vehicle in all of its races, and the humid conditions in Singapore―as well as the lack of natural light―only add to the challenge.

Safety cars often contribute to the length of the Singapore Grand Prix - there still has not been a Grand Prix in Singapore where the safety vehicle has not had to emerge from the pits.

Vettel has been able to dominate this race, winning four times in his career. Vettel has four wins this year with five runner-up finishes.

FX said he normally charges eight dollars per lawn (about £5.90) but made a decision to mow the White House lawn free of charge. Frank's request became reality when he was invited to the White House to mow the Rose Garden lawn and meet the president.

As the race is held on a street circuit, it could be properly illuminated during the evening, with demand for tickets remaining high.

The data from the control units are sent in real-time to the track-side, pit lane and worldwide factories, where mission control departments will utilize the information to help race teams improve performance and strategy, Rhodes said.

Aside from the data experiment, which is aimed at enhancing the human ability to make better decisions, aerodynamic designs and the relationship between software efficiency and a car's cooling systems are some of F1's other technological advancements, Rhodes said. He is now sixth in the point standings and been retired in six different races this year.

Ricciardo finished second in this race the last two years.
