Singapore Airlines Extends Title Sponsorship for Formula1(R) Singapore Grand Prix

September 23, 2019 Sports No Comments Email Email

Singapore Airlines (SIA) will continue to be the Title Sponsor of the FORMULA 1 SINGAPORE AIRLINES SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX for two more years, until 2021.

The Singapore Grand Prix is one of Formula 1’s premier racing events as drivers race through the Marina Bay Circuit, a street track against the city’s famous skyline as its spectacular backdrop.

SIA first signed as Title Sponsor in 2014 for four years and subsequently extended it for two years, through the 2019 race. The agreement to extend the sponsorship for two more years was announced today by SIA CEO Goh Choon Phong and Formula 1 Chairman and CEO Chase Carey.

“The Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix is a major event in Singapore’s sporting calendar, drawing huge crowds to view the exhilarating Night Race and associated entertainment line-ups. We are pleased to be continuing as title sponsor, and helping to further enhance both sports and tourism for the benefit of Singaporeans and visitors alike,” said Mr Goh.

Added Mr Carey: “We are very pleased that Singapore Airlines will continue to be the title sponsor for the Singapore Grand Prix until 2021. Singapore Airlines has been working closely with Formula 1 at the Marina Bay Circuit since 2014 and during that time we have seen brilliant races under the lights of an amazing circuit. As one of the premier events on the race calendar, loved by the fans and drivers, it is a perfect fit for us to work alongside the national airline of Singapore. We are looking forward to this year’s race that should, if the past eleven years is anything to go by, provide an amazing spectacle and a physically demanding race for the drivers.”

The Marina Bay Circuit spans 5.063km with 23 corners, a bumpy street surface, tight corners and humid conditions. The circuit also boasts some of the most unique features of any track on the F1 calendar, including Turn 18, which sees the drivers pass underneath a grandstand.
