well i think the initial novelty and unknown of a night race will make for a spectacular and exciting build-up if not an intresting race...

i dont think it will make any difference to the racing, maybe make it easier for drivers in terms of heat and air density giving higher downforces.

theres now gona be night races with moto gp too, which i think will be coming around the same time. lets wait and see what happens!

I have a couple of friends living in Singapore, and one of them lives on the proposed F1 track, so I think I might just be there for the race!

I think it will be very interesting. I already saw some Nascar night races and I liked it very much.

the motogp night race in qatar will give some indication of what can be expected.
wud really love to see how drivers react to sudden events or debris on the track.

I'm kind of sad that we have a night race. This series is slowly turning into IRL.

I watched a 3D onboard lap of the track (i'll post link if i can find it again) and it seems alright. Tight though, so i'd expect a lot of wall to chassis contact.

the artificial lighting factor was not so important in yesterday's race. It was an interesting and exciting one, but this was not due to the artificial lights.

Im hoping that the difference in temperatures will make the track colder than usual, as it will be intresting to see how the drivers handle the lack of grip on a tight circuit.

I think the night race is too expensive and Ecclestone is stupiod if he want a lot of night races.

I think night race is something what can attract more attention to F1,
it's absolutely necessary to move on and to use some extra ways to make races more interesting
