After announcing a new four year deal for Singapore, F1 CEO and chairman Carey reiterated that Asia is a "tremendously" important region for the sport and India figures in their scheme of things for the future, if not now, with the calendar already packed till next year.

Sebastian Vettel's pace in his Ferrari was astonishing on friday's practice sessions as well as the saturday FP3 and qualifying, It came as real surprise and even Vettel stated in post qualifying conference that he and his team are surprised with the results so far.

Romain Grosjean is anxious about poor visibility at the Marina Bay circuit, which has been hit with torrential rain showers on Sunday morning. The race is on Sunday, Sept. 17, at 8 a.m. ET, and NBCSN's pre-race live coverage will start at 7 a.m. ET.

So for the first time in 2017 F1 season, Sebastian Vettel will arrive on the race weekend not in lead of Championship as Lewis Hamilton won two back to back grand prixs to get ahead on points table. We can still be in the mix. "We haven't been good this weekend".

"We think agreements should always reflect ongoing fair value between two parties and we're happy to have to build this sport if we want to receive increased value over time, to make sure we're delivering better and better events".

"But it is a very challenging circuit here, getting the set-up right, getting the timing right, understanding the tyres".

Liberty Media chief Chase Carey, the man who replaced the great Bernie Ecclestone, has mentioned that the Indian market holds a great importance and the races might soon return, if everything goes as planned. The only night race on the calendar will continue until 2021.
