Future Tense[edit]

Much of this artile is written in the future tense. When the Grand Prix takes place it will need to be completely rewritten. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Frank.corr (talkcontribs) 07:13, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, but we can't write it now in the past tense as it wouldn't be correct! Readro (talk) 20:56, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

The Singapore Street Circuit article should be merged into this article. - 218.186.9.1 12:59, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

The event and the circuit are two different things. Please see 2008 Formula One season and see how every other article is organised.--Huaiwei 13:27, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Box Brackets[edit]

Can someone remove the block brackets from "Last race ([[ Singapore Grand Prix|]]):". - Adenau 18:54, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

I've avoided the brackets by setting "Current_year" to 2008. Now there's a redlink to 2008 Singapore Grand Prix instead. The template was really designed to be used for races which have already been run at least once. (An alternative would be to set Current_year to 1973, i.e. the last running of the race, which would result in a redlink to 1973 Singapore Grand Prix, but then that wouldn't match the circuit configuration and length). -- DH85868993 02:20, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Copyright issue[edit]

The section Singapore_Grand_Prix#Pre_Formula_One_history is copied from [1]. --Vsion 23:46, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

I've reworded the paragraph to avoid the copyvio. DH85868993 03:30, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Circuit Map[edit]

The circuit map is incorrect. Firstly the circuit will go in the opposite direction to that shown, and since then, the design has altered. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.69.0.172 (talk) 16:24, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

done. i've updated the map - oahiyeel talk 19:44, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
no race has happened on this track, the wins stat are those of a different track in central singapore used during 1970s. they should be replace with N/A until the 1st race of the current track takes place this september. agree? Akinkhoo (talk) 14:40, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
agree - oahiyeel talk 10:22, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
But the article is about a race not just a track. 83.67.72.226 (talk) 18:08, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Street circuit not a novelty[edit]

I have removed the sentence which says that a street circuit would be "a relative novelty in the series" from the Economic benefits section. A street circuit is not "a relative novelty" in Formula One. Monaco is a street circuit, Melbourne and Montreal are street circuits, Adelaide, Montjuïc, Detroit, Long Beach, Dallas and Phoenix were street circuits, Spa-Francorchamps and the Nürburgring started out as street circuits, the new Valencia circuit will be a street circuit.

Some of them are from... Reuters? Chensiyuan (talk) 01:19, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Ok removed by commonsdelinker... Chensiyuan (talk) 15:29, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Reception[edit]

Shouldnt the reception section belong to the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix article? Chensiyuan (talk) 02:52, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree. Readro (talk) 09:44, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
Any objections? If not it'd be moved in a couple of days... Chensiyuan (talk) 11:27, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Chensiyuan (talk) 12:44, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Why is it called the Singapore Grand Prix rather than the Singaporean Grand Prix? Most Grands Prix use the adjectival form rather than the country name. --Jameboy (talk) 19:28, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

If you're asking why it's called the Singapore Grand Prix on Wikipedia, that's because that's the official name of the event - see http://www.singaporegp.sg/. If, however, you're asking why the organisers called it that, that's something you'd probably need to ask them. Although I do note that it's quite common for Singaporean events and institutions to be called "Singapore <blah>" rather than "Singaporean <blah>" - consider the Singapore International Film Festival, Singapore Open, Singapore Marathon and many others listed here.
