F1 Party coming to Singapore!

Finally its confirmed, the biggest party is coming to Singapore. F1 circus will be down here in October next year, plus its going to be the biggest spectacle the world has ever seen in formula 1. Its going to be a night race. The drivers are worried, but the government in Singapore is confident that they can do it, and I am confident that the government will do it if they say so. This is what I like about this place, they always keep challenging themselves, and succeed. But still the safety issues are not mitigated. Fernando Alonso has been most vocal against the concept of a night race. This is a question I want to throw to all the readers. Can we make it? Will Singapore succeed in hosting the first ever Night F1 Grand Prix?

    i only wonder what the ever-confident government will do when a car crash into one of the buildings in shenton way and makes a big dent

    WEll I am sure they will have a back up plan, but the interesting thing I would like to know your opinion on is that whether spending about $500 million dollars justified, or they will recover the money from the extra taxes planned on the hotels around Raffles?

    It will be a rough gamble, but they should be relatively confident of generating returns.

    Traffic will be horrid though.

    With the government’s pragmatic stance towards most issues, I’m quite confident that profits should have been calculated and guranteed for this event to have been approved.

    What I’m worried about are the other intangible costs that may arise from this project : pollution, gambling(perhaps?)
