Here’s how the best weekend of your life will pan out (don’t expect to get much sleep)…
FRIDAY 14 SEPTEMBER
Formula 1® Practice. During the two sessions of Free Practice, the teams check out the track and evaluate how their cars behave in current set-up. Strategy for the race will be planned based on the information gained, such as the settings for the aerodynamics, how long each type of tyre will last (teams have to use two different types of Pirelli tyre during a race – one harder than the other) and when to make their pit-stops.
Downtown: Sampa The Great
Padang Stage: Jay Chou
SATURDAY 15 SEPTEMBER
Formula 1® Qualifying. Qualifying is where the drivers try to set the fastest single lap time possible to determine in which position they will start the race. After the first 18-minute session, the slowest six drivers will be eliminated; they will start at the back of the grid in the order of their best lap time. The second 15-minute session will see the remaining 16 drivers reduced to 10, who will then go on to a 10-minute final ‘shoot out’ to determine their starting positions and, of course, decide who will secure the all-important Pole Position – especially valuable at narrow street circuits like this one, where overtaking is harder than anywhere.
Sunset Stage: Sampa The Great
