I guess that Kimi and Heikki have a little advantage. At December, there's 24h darkness here :)
Vijay (Mallya) has lived in Singapore and he says, that there rains all the time...

BTW: Awesome taxis tho:

Am I in the minority in wanting a dry race? I want to see an even run in to the season,and also another wet race would be too much of a good thing.Wehn you get days off school because of snow,your happy because its a day off and its a very rare occurence.Too many wet races and the novelty will wear off.

yeah, i wanna dry race because in the wet itll be dangerous and may not run and a freak shower will just make it a lottery and still dangerous. I hope Practice will be dry and maybe wet, because then if its wet we get a good indication of what "night (four times the brightness of a Premier League floodlighted pitch) +rain =

After looking at the pics on f1.com as well, the track has definte potential for accidents at least. Some corners are very tight on the exit and there looks a interesting section where (the only way I can describe it) is its like a very short straight with 2 triangular curbs either side of the track which could possibly if hit wrong throw the car wide.

I'd like to see a wet farce, strange as it sounds. One that comes up with a shock winner, but maybe isn't a good race, as such. Fuji 2007 was a bit extreme to me, which is why I would rate, say Belgium 2008 or Monaco 2008 higher, because they were proper wet races - there was excitement, overtaking, and shock, but a load of crazy stuff didn't happen. At turn 1 of Fuji, I think Nick Heidfeld Alex Wurz and Felipe Massa all had an accident together on the straight, immediately after the SC pulled in. On the run up to the first turn. With no serious steering having yet been done. That was crazy.

Therefore, a crazy race, red-flagged or farcical, would not necessarily be the most entertaining race (although Fuji was), but certainly a memorable one, which would defeat the problem of too many good wet races in a row.. Follow me? :) Probably no-one else wants a farce. But I'd love to see Nick or Seb (V) or JT or even Naka pull off a surprise win.

Last night Singapore track was much busier than 2 days ago, no busier in sense of more people, but the activities from the team has increase. Ferrari and Bmw are actually working on normal singapore time (at 6pm they were already out of the track), rather than all the other team are working on european time (meaning they finish at the track around 2 or 3 am), lots of team did inspection of the track. which is completed, but very dirty. Friday timing will not relevant at all (maybe only last part of second session), so dirty is the track. I joint for 2 inspection lap renault team and red bull. they agree that if no rain overtake is difficult. More i met Jenson on pitlane, which i exchange few word. he is hoping in rain. Regarding this today here there is no sign of rain, is sunny and hot at the moment, but basically means nothing it can change so fast here. Sunday there was rain and sun about 4 time (UNPREDICTABLE). More Alonso, Coulthard, Webber, and many other did lap on the track walking, running or cycling. Who didn't KIMI, Felipe, Lewis, Heikki. They are expected to do it today.

P.s: For the administartor, is it possible to post some picture? if yes, How? < THANKS >
