Singapore Grand Prix: Circuit to host race until at least 2021

Ahead of this year's event, which will begin with free practice on Friday afternoon, a new four-year deal has been reached, keeping the iconic race on the calendar until 2021.

Liberty Media had taken complete control of F1 in January, ending Bernie Ecclestones 40-year reign at the helm of affairs.

"We're in the early days of the plans we have for the future", Carey said.

Momentum is certainly with the Silver Arrows after the Italian Grand Prix, but given the tricky nature of the Marina Bay circuit and the many incidents we can expect, Hamilton and Company cannot afford to lose focus or rest easy.

"We are looking forward to offering our continued support to make the next four years even more spectacular and exciting". The Formula One Group have agreed a deal with French television channel TF1 to show four full races exclusively free-to-air, with the rest of the 2018 season continuing as highlights. Besides India, Korea is another country that could not survive in F1 for long.

LONDON MARKET EARLY CALL: Higher Call As Hurricane Irma Downgraded
Royal Caribbean Cruises jumped $3.88, or 3.3 percent, to $121.33 and American Airlines gained $1.27, or 2.9 percent, to $44.87. Both Paris and Frankfurt were both up 1.1 percent in afternoon trading, while London stocks trailed with a 0.2 percent gain.

"We are incredibly happy to announce this extension and very proud of our partnership", F1 chief executive Chase Carey said at a news conference at the racetrack. But Asia in general is tremendously important.

Carry said the sports revamp has already started.

Jake Michaels is a multi-sport journalist but his heart belongs truly to motorsport, particularly Formula 1.

"We're proud of the race, we have a good relationship and our goal is to get to a place where we build on that partnership long-term". We can still do potentially better strategies.
