Singaporeans want F1 race to stay
LONDON: Formula One fans in Singapore are keen for the race to remain there, despite negotiations between organisers and F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone seemingly stalled, according to a survey conducted by British research firm YouGov. The contract for the Singapore race expires this year and Ecclestone and organisers are still in negotiations about extending beyond 2017, though he suggested last November that talks were not progressing well. The future of the race, however, was a concern for the 1002 Singaporean respondents to the survey, with 57 percent keen for it to continue beyond this year. About 70 percent also felt the race had been a net positive for the country.
