Round thirteenth of the season takes us to the Marina Bay in the city state of Singapore. The circuit winds its way through the streets and through the lights. The street are wide and unlike some street circuits over taking is possible and easier. The circuit runs alongside the harbour which is lit up with fireworks after the race.
The circuit is fast and winds its way through the city. There are many spots where overtaking is easier however it can be a challenge because of the barriers lining the circuit. This year the race looks to be in favour of Mercedes.
