Alex Palmer Writes

Most of the social media heading towards the race this weekend has been photos of various Singapore landmarks obscured (or partially obscured) by fog. And that's real fog, not the smoke from Renault engines as they give up the fight. It's also interesting that most weather forecasts for the weekend show rain (or at least 'heavy showers') for Sunday. Could this actually be an entertaining race this year??

Also worth noting a driver change for Manor F1 this weekend (and for most of the rest of the season), with Roberto Merhi making way for Alexander Rossi - much to the delight of the US media and fans who will now have a home driver racing at Austin next month. Hopefully this gives the Austin round a boost in terms of ticket sales given the Mexican F1 GP will surely have an impact on the number of Mexican fans who would have otherwise come to Austin. It's also worth considering whether Ferrari may have bankrolled this move, as a way of giving Rossi the race experience that Haas F1 (a Ferrari powered team) have been publicly saying they want in a race driver. Be that as it may, my favourite take on the situation came from one twitter wag who noted "There's just been an announcement that a different driver will be finishing last for the rest of the season". Harsh, but true.....

There's a few F1infocentre alumni on the ground in Singapore, I'm sure it will be a good weekend regardless of the weather or the smog - but I guess I'm most interested to see whether any of them make it onto the TV coverage (bonus points if anyone can get on TV wearing the dust mask!)
