As races go, this is the one to look forward to. You couldn't ask for more going into the inaugural Singapore Grand Prix.
It's a brand new street circuit, Formula One's first ever night race, and the sport's first foray into another new country. The title race is finely poised with tempers flared after Lewis Hamilton's appeal was rejected earlier this week, and it's possibly reigning champion Kimi Raikkonen's last chance to stay in the fight with all the talk at Ferrari turning to 'the good of the team'.
And Singapore comes on the back of a hugely popular maiden victory for Sebastian Vettel and Scuderia Toro Rosso last time out at Monza, which gave F1 back its much needed feel good factor after the bitter taste left with many by Spa.
