Why Singapore’s 2023 F1 track changes should hurt Red Bull

OPINION: The 2023 Singapore Grand Prix is the 15th anniversary of Formula 1’s first night race joining the calendar. Since 2008, many other races have copied Singapore’s successful blueprint, but for now this event is introducing a major track change. And it’s one that has Red Bull’s drivers vocally worried…

The Singapore Grand Prix has reached another milestone: it’s 15 years since the Marina Bay event, Formula 1’s original night race, held its first race. 

Since that inaugural event back in 2008, the F1 calendar has been rather moulded by Singapore. The 2008 race might be in many minds thanks to Felipe Massa’s ongoing legal wranglings over its outcome and that of that year’s world title battle with Lewis Hamilton, but in many other ways this event’s influence and success can be seen in so many other parts of the championship’s current look and feel.
