TV coverage is priceless, the international audience of F1 is a lot bigger than what most of us think.

this is just the beginning. there will be more motor race coming. imagine casinos and motorcar racing here in singapore. What i want to see is international motorcycle 500cc racing. I think there are more enthusiats in motorcycle racing in asia than F1. One beside changi airport where motorcycle can drag race against aircraft takeoff. We have plenty of new reclaim land.

I have friends who told me that watching F1 on TV was better as you get to see from different angles, and repeats of accidents etc.

What is wrong with spending that amount to hold the event? I think its a big step to our tourism image. The TV coverage for the event that is broadcast all over the world is simply priceless. Think of the chain of events that can happen.

Not that I'm a big supporter of F1. Heck I didn't even watch it on TV. But if this event can bring millions of dollars to SG, I don't see why not. The person don't see a bigger picture or just want SG to remain what is 10 years ago - a "fine" city? Cmon, its damn about time for a change.

Hey man, I don't blame the education system for not able to pay for my fees or blame the fact that I'm not rich or something, but there are scholarships out there right? Ever consider that?

I one of those who support the F1 to be held in Singapore. Yes, while the business benefit of the F1 maybe not as great as expect but I believe from a PR point of view, $90 Million to showcase and advertise Singapore to around the world is just priceless. While you guys may not watch F1, F1 rank just below Soccer in the no. of international audience. Is more than just inviting some EPL team to play again our Lions or hosting the Singapore Open (golf). F1 is a international sport, Singapore will be in the world map and such exposures is priceless.

I am quite sure, even without F1, our electricity bills will increase. Come on. Price increase is rather common here in Singapore. I mean like what else in Singapore doesn't increase. Water, Electricity, Transportation, GST...the government is trying to rip us of every cents.
