Furthermore, the event’s promoter has already warned that it is “not feasible to conduct the race behind closed doors”.
“The Formula 1 calendar for the 2020 season is currently being finalised and Singapore GP has been maintaining an open dialogue with Formula 1, the Singapore Government, and our stakeholders during this time, to assess different possibilities,” an event spokesperson said.
“Singapore GP is also working closely with the Singapore Tourism Board and various government agencies on the circuit setup timeline.
“As the street circuit requires considerable temporary infrastructure, sufficient lead time to complete the construction of the various components must be factored in.
“Works typically require three months to complete, and this will be predicated on whether such activities are permitted under the prevailing government regulations.
“We will continue to keep a close watch on developments. Our utmost priority remains the well-being and safety of our fans, staff, volunteers, and all Singaporeans.”
