The 2018 Singapore Grand Prix took place over the weekend at the Marina Bay Street Circuit with Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton winning the race on Sunday night (Sept 16) after starting in pole position.

There were various ways of catching the action – some bought tickets that allowed them to walk on the outside of the track, while others chose seats at different sections. But the best way to watch the F1 is at the various hospitality suites where the price of a ticket includes the best food you’d find and an open bar.

In addition to refreshing its luxurious Sky Suite, organiser Singapore GP also rolled out the new Twenty3 hospitality package – priced at S$955 (+GST) per person for the practice session on Friday and S$5,565 (+GST) for all three days.

Ticket-holders got to try food from famous restaurants which don’t operate in Singapore and were only specially set up for the weekend. Here’s a look at what Twenty3 looked like when we dropped in on Saturday.


You can choose to dine at three restaurants, all serving different cuisines. This one called Five Light Pavilion is a collaboration between Singapore’s Blue Lotus Chinese Grill House and Tokyo’s China Blue restaurant.

You can also watch the race from the restaurants while tucking into a meal. The view you get is of Turn 23 – which the hospitality package is named after.

It was cosy inside and there was a giant screen to watch the race. If you prefer to catch the action ‘live’, just head to the rooftop viewing gallery to hear the roar of the engines.
