Am I the only one the images from the track look incredibly boring?
Except for the shots from the helicopters, alls you see is gray concrete, black asphalt, gray fences and everything outside the track is covered in darkness.
That's what I'm thinking too and F1 needs more tracks like that. All these new circuits are way too forgiving and lead to the glorified parades we've been seeing for years. Someone can make a big mistake and just follow the runoff and get back to where they were like nothing happened. At Singapore it seems that the smallest mistake will lead to race ending damage which should keep the drivers on their toes.It will reward to precise driver, and destroy the careless. Interesting race on Sunday, but I agree - qualifying will be everything.
F1 drivers raise concerns over Singapore street circuit
27 September 2008
Formula 1 drivers finished a one hour meeting on Friday evening with race director Charlie Whiting to request a number of improvements to the race track in Singapore . The drivers complained about the lighting at some parts of the tracks, the pitlane entry and bumps.
While most drivers were very positive after Friday's two free rpatice session there are still some concerns in the brand-new street circuit. Some drivers expressed their concerns about the lighting quality at some parts of the track.
Fernando Alonso said about the lighting: " I was really impressed with the track here in Singapore when I walked the track. But behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car at 300 km/h some parts of the track are still a bit dark."
A number of drivers also pointed out that Turn 10's kerbs are still too high. "We've seen a few drivers already having incidents there at Turn 10 and I'm sure we'll see more of the same story during the weekend if it can't be changed," Coulthard said.
