“I’m happy that this is out of the way because Singapore has been good to F1 and the night race has also been equally good for Singapore.”

“It has always been my intention to see that this race in Singapore continues beyond our current deal. Now that the negotiations are finally over, I am looking forward to go to Singapore for this year’s event because I’ve always enjoyed it.” Ecclestone added.

Todayonline reports that – the initial Grand Prix in 2008 on Marina Bay street circuit, the rights fee to stage the Singapore Grand Prix is believed to have cost Singapore organizers US$35 million initially, and following yearly increases, peaked at about US$42 million last year. It cost another S$150 million to prepare for each race, and 60 per cent – or S$90 million – of that amount is footed by the Singapore Government.

A feasibility study to review the benefits of continuing with the race here beyond the first agreement was conducted by authorities after the 2010 edition.
