More night practice for Singapore GP confirmed

(GMM) The timetable of the first ever formula one night race in Singapore later this month has changed, in order to give teams and drivers more practice under the lights.

Concerns had been raised that only 90 minutes of floodlit practice were allocated before qualifying takes place after sunset on Saturday.

Initial Friday practice, for instance, was until now scheduled to take place in daylight (4pm), and – similarly – pre-qualifying practice on Saturday was scheduled for 5pm.

The major changes are to the initial Friday and Saturday practice sessions, which will both now begin at 7pm local.

Second Friday practice is now to begin at 9.30.

Sunday's race start time of 8pm remains the same, but qualifying will now begin at 10pm rather than earlier in the evening as previously scheduled.
