Haze situation not stopping Singapore GP yet


Formula 1 2015 Singapore grand prix is going ahead, despite the haze situation in the skies above the popular floodlight street circuit.

Authorities on Tuesday declared that the air quality in the city-state due to Indonesian forest fires remains “unhealthy”, and “may deteriorate” further on Wednesday.

So as international coverage of the haze situation increases in the days leading up to F1 action, organisers of the grand prix issued a statement on Tuesday.

“Based on the current PSI (pollution) levels, there are no plans to amend the published racing and entertainment programme,” it read.

“The haze situation is highly changeable not only from day to day, but from hour to hour. Therefore, it is currently not possible to reliably predict what the PSI level might be over the race weekend.”

The organisers said face masks will be sold to patrons at the circuit at cost price, and 24 first aid posts “have been placed on standby”. (GMM)
