Singapore Grand Prix

The Singapore Grand Prix 2019 marks only night race in the Formula One calendar. As always, the race will be held at the Marina Bay street circuit. The Singapore Grand Prix was first introduced to the F1 calendar in 2008. Since then, it has been a regular feature in the Formula One World Championship.

Controversy

The very first race itself was mired in controversy, courtesy Renault. Apparently, Nelson Piquet Jr was told to crash his car deliberately to bring out the safety car.

Meanwhile, his teammate Fernando Alonso had already pitted for fresh tyres and fuel. So he benefitted handsomely when the rest of the pack pitted under the safety car, vaulting him up the order to an unlikely win.

However, months later, the FIA smelt a rat and investigated the incident. Then Piquet Jr squealed, revealing that his crash was a ploy to let Alonso win. As a result, team principal Flavio Briatore was banned and Nelson Piquet Jr’s career was practically thrown away
