Formula One Singapore Brings $70,000 Tables to Nightclubs

The most grueling F1 race in the calendar offers fans glamour unabated—concerts, parties, VIP suites, and luxury dining. Here’s how to make the most of the Singapore Grand Prix.

Formula One leaders Max Verstappen, Charles LeClerc, and Sergio Perez will have their work cut out for them when they return to the Singapore Grand Prix Oct. 2 for the first time since 2019. 

The bumpy F1 circuit is especially punishing because it follows a route that swirls through Singapore’s city streets. This will be the first road-going course race drivers encounter since the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in June. What’s more, Singapore’s GP will run 61 laps over that uneven asphalt and through 23 slow corners at night, making it even more precarious for the ultra-stiff suspensions of Formula One race cars.
