A technical, bumpy and unforgiving circuit, the Marina Bay track has played host to several spectacular races in the past few years.

Carey said India should have a Grand Prix considering its rapid growth as a nation.

The 10th installment of the Singapore Grand Prix has begun, and it looks like Red Bull Racing may have the edge over their rivals. Both Ricciardo and teammate Max Verstappen took engine penalties at the beginning of the weekend but rain in qualifying meant they were able to qualify in the top three. There was just the one safety vehicle last season, with Hulkenburg crashing nearly immediately after lights out, but multiple safety auto periods combined with the possibility of rain this time around could mean that the race is timed out.

Since the first race in 2008, four drivers have won the Singapore Grand Prix - Sebastian Vettel (four times), Fernando Alonso (twice), Lewis Hamilton (twice) and Nico Rosberg (once).
