The Indian Grand Prix went off the calendar after three editions from 2011, largely due to the serious financial problems faced by promoter Jaypee Group and the red tape around the event. Other short odds to win are Lewis Hamilton (+162), Daniel Ricciardo (+700) and Max Verstappen (+700). Barring a spectacular performance, he will be the sole owner of the unenviable record of being the driver with the most grand prix starts without a podium.

More than 350,000 worldwide visitors have visited the country over the past nine races, generating an average of about S$150 million incremental tourism receipts each year, with foreign visitors making up more than 40 per cent of the unique spectators.

Romain Grosjean has concerns about visibility should the Singapore Grand Prix be held in wet conditions under the floodlights at the Marina Bay Street Circuit.

"Singapore is a signature race", Carey added.

"We look forward to the continued support of all Singaporeans as we work with Formula 1, Singapore GP, and all stakeholders, to ensure the F1 Singapore Grand Prix remains an event that we can all be proud of".

The lights are on and the cars are gleaming as the night draws nearer. Hamilton has won three of the last four races.

The future of the race on the island nation was hotly contested over the past year amid declining attendance rates, but officials recently announced a four-year extension. Mercedes now lead Ferrari by 62 points - and this weekend represents a great chance for Ferrari, who undoubtedly hold the upper hand in Singapore - to close the gap on the Silver Arrows. He is now sixth in the point standings and been retired in six different races this year.
