17 September 2023, Singapore – The Marina Bay Street Circuit welcomed 264,108 fans to the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2023 over the race weekend.
Despite the closure of the Bay Grandstand as part of the planned redevelopment of The Float at Marina Bay, which led to this year’s reduced attendance from 2022’s record capacity, six new grandstands as well as additional walkabout tickets were introduced to mitigate the loss of capacity, and these were all fully taken up due to very strong demand. This year’s turnout exceeds the previously announced anticipated attendance for 2023 of 250,000 over the three days.
In the last two days, the home of Formula 1 night racing has seen stunning action on track capped by a thrilling Qualifying session in which Carlos Sainz claimed Ferrari’s seventh Singapore pole ahead of Mercedes driver George Russell and Sainz’s teammate Charles Leclerc. Singapore now holds its collective breath in anticipation of what could possibly be a sixth different race-winner tonight.
Over the last two days, the Padang stage concerts headlined by Post Malone, Kings of Leon, as well as a line-up of artistes presented by 88rising including Jackson Wang, Niki, and Rich Brian have attracted tens of thousands of fans. Ticketholders can look forward to another amazing night of performances tonight with Robbie Williams and Groove Armada at the Zone 4 Padang stage, as well as the Kings of Leon and Madness at the Zone 1 Wharf Stage.
In a sign of continuing strong demand into 2024, the Super Early Bird tickets for next year’s race have also sold out having gone on sale only 72 hours ago. For the next ticketing phase selected tickets will now be available at Early Bird prices from 26 September via the official website www.singaporegp.sg.
