Rediff says it's raining heavily in Singapore. Considering it's the first night GP, I think it could be dangerous and we might see some spectacular accidents.
Heavy rains lash Singapore
Go Vettel!

Come on, guys...we have had enough of wet races in the recent past! I am dying to see a fast dry race.

Apparently, Singapore doesn't have too many overtaking opportunities. I hope this is untrue, but if it is, why does Bernie approve all these new tracks with zero overtaking? The new Spanish GP was horrible!

Statements rolling in that the teams are running high on downforce. As high as Monaco

Absolutely! Too much of rain. I feel Singapore is going Monaco and Valencia way. Boring!!
I hope its not.

@ Spanish GP - I dont remember ever falling asleep while watching race in past 10 years!!

Did anyone watch the practice session yesterday?
The pit exit is really narrow, and the cars exit the pits on the racing line. It will be interesting to see what happens if a Ferrari exits the pits at the same time as when Hamilton is about to take turn 1

Is it the same everywhere?

Yup, they are going to show qualifying at around 9 - 9:30 on star sports.

Whats funny is that the football match is being aired on 2 diff channels. Y can't they show it on ESPN and air F1 on Star Sports? Afterall qualifying is live as well.

you can follow some commentary at BBC sports. but its all very Hamilton focussed. football has a 15 minutes break now - so may be they will show some of Q3. else I can post updates here - i am getting it live here
