In the first provisional draft of the 2018 Formula 1 calendar that came out last month, the Singapore Grand Prix along with China was marked provisional and a deal is yet to be reached to extend and secure its existence on the F1 calendar.
However, there is potentially good news incoming.
Promoters of the Singapore GP were present at the recently concluded British GP to meet with the new owners of F1 Liberty Media.
“It’s a work in progress”, said the deputy chairman of the Singapore GP organisation Syn. “It’s a serious matter, so we’re being very careful. Everything we do has to be together.”
“It’s very close and we’re very hopeful”, he said giving very little away about the deal. “We can only hope. We’re just looking at a good deal.”
