AS LONG AS THEY CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE THE RACING MORE INTERESTING TO WATCH I DON'T CARE WHEN THE RACE IS HELD

I think that if they manage it well, with safety and good conditions for everybody (tv, pilots, audience) - there´s nothing wrong, and it surely would be a different show.

than we will see (won't see) the biggest crash of the century....but that's a 0.0001% to happen...because there are alot of generators, and so on...


And for a night race, i can't wait, to see all the sponsor logos flashes, and so on, i for one will think it's an awsome idee....and i don't care if someone can or can't sleep, because it will be held in singapore, and i don't care!!!! i wish it was near me, cuz i for one, love f1 engine sounds

Yeah. That what I think is the really dangerous part of the idea of night races. Although lots of other series like the IRL and NASCAR do night racing without too much problems.

That will be very exciting. SO far there aren't any in F1. However safety issues have to be taken into consideration first. Plus it's a street race. ANd street races are always unpredictable and tougher on the drivers than track races.

I'm sure the authorities in charge will prepare all the necessary to ensure that it will be a very exciting and fantastic race for both the fans and drivers

I would like a night race just to see what it is like and i'm sure if it doesn't work out they won't be long taking it off the F1 calender

It would be interesting to see, simply because of the advertising flashing around and other things, it'll look like Las Vegas or something like that...

night race? why not?
but be sure that it's safe. not only driver but marshals and spectators too. remember the most recent death was a marshal.
especially since it's street race. when i see monaco race i always thought one of the marshals is gonna got smashed. they dont deserved that. they are the one who take care of the safety.

They could paint the cars and the track lines neon and use blacklights... it would look like Tron.

They could blast dance music and call it a Ravetrack!!

Are y'all ready for this?
thump, thump, thump,
thump-thump-thump,
thump, thump....


Pump up the jam pump it up,
while Massa is a winnin', Jean Todt keeps grinnin'
oh pump it up... a little more
Hamilton is killin' Alonso!
kimi got to put that pedal to the floor.
'cuz Schumi don't race no mo'.
His new Ferrari got a stereo
So what the hell Kimi waitin' fo'!?
Gotta lay of them cheese tacos!
blablablabla


Stressful day today you can tell... ;)
