Singapore announces track changes ahead of Grand Prix


As a result of changes to Singapore’s Civic District, there will be some alterations made to the Marina Bay Street Circuit ahead of this year’s Singapore Grand Prix on September 20.

Turns 11 through 13 have been modified. Turn 11 will kink out slightly left before coming back right, which will open the cars up for Turn 12, to release them out faster into Turn 13, another left-hander.

The goal is to create another potential passing opportunity for the drivers on what is traditionally one of the toughest tracks to pass.
