2017 Singapore GP Pre-Race Stats

The night race is here! The tenth Singapore GP, a race that has always had at least one safety car every year.

Marina Bay Street Circuit is a 5.065km long lap, with 61 laps in the race. The total race distance is 308.965km, the third longest race, this combined with the slow speed makes it the longest running race, occasionally running over the allowed two hours.

An incredible seven (77.78%) of the nine races in Singapore have been won from pole position, but it has never been won from second on the grid. The two non-pole wins were from 15th in 2008 from Fernando Alonso (thanks to some cheating from his teammate) and from third in 2012 from Sebastian Vettel.

Unsurprisingly the 77.78% win from pole percentage is the highest of any track on the calendar. Only four drivers have won the Singapore GP, with Vettel having won the most races with four. Alonso and Hamilton both have two wins each and then Rosberg has one. Red Bull are the team with the most wins here with three, Ferrari and Mercedes each have two.

The Silly Stats

Seeing as everyone always talks about lights when it comes to the Singapore GP. The time it would take for a light to lap around the circuit through a fibre optic cable? 0.016922 milliseconds.

You would need 3.2 million 250g jars of Marmite to cover the track with 1cm of Marmite. 6 million slices of bread would also cover the track, about 300,000 loaves of bread.
