The ac­tion

F1 Racing - - RICCIARDO ON THE ROAD - Ad­ver­tis­ing fea­ture

thrilling con­clu­sion to the 2016 FOR­MULA 1 SIN­GA­PORE AIR­LINES SIN­GA­PORE GRAND PRIX. But while the wav­ing of the che­quered flag sig­nalled the end of the race, for many the ex­cite­ment was about to go up a notch.

Af­ter the race, the crowds flocked to the pos­trace con­certs, which have evolved from track­side en­ter­tain­ment into a beast of its own. The ninth edi­tion saw Aus­tralian song­bird Kylie Minogue daz­zling the crowds with her shim­mer­ing out­fits and elec­tri­fy­ing per­for­mance, while Queen + Adam Lam­bert shared the stage to bring the house down. Round­ing up the all-star line-up were other big names such as Imag­ine Dragons, Halsey and Pen­ta­tonix.

But the FOR­MULA 1 ex­pe­ri­ence in Sin­ga­pore has al­ways been much more than just the race it­self. It’s more than just the week­end of the race, too, be­cause Grand Prix Sea­son Sin­ga­pore this year ran from Septem­ber 9 to 18. The sea­son drew throngs of in­ter­na­tional and re­gional vis­i­tors to the is­land city for a piece of non-stop ac­tion — both on and off-cir­cuit.

With the en­tire city abuzz with ac­tiv­ity, it’s no won­der that the Sin­ga­pore race is of­ten re­ferred to as the crown jewel in the FOR­MULA 1 cir­cuit and con­tin­ues to gar­ner global at­ten­tion, seal­ing it as a high­light on many a trav­eller’s cal­en­dar.
