The Formula 1 circus is leaving the European tracks behind as it embarks on an exhilarating Asian double-header, commencing with the Singapore Grand Prix. The anticipation is high, especially after Max Verstappen’s historic achievement of securing his 10th consecutive F1 victory in the previous race in Italy.
However, there’s a unique challenge awaiting Verstappen at the Marina Bay Street circuit in Singapore.
