"Difficult" and "challenging" are two of the most common words used by the drivers to describe the night race.

Singapore joined the schedule in 2008 as the sport's inaugural night race, and in 2012 penned an extension through to 2017.

Last year, Massa finished in a disappointing twelfth place, a lap down, and out of the points, after opting to run a three-stop strategy that did not work in his favour.

17 percent of Manatee County waiting for power after Irma
More than 3 million people in Florida and Georgia remain without power days after Hurricane Irma unleashed its fury on the states. FPL said on Tuesday it planned to restore power to eastern Florida by this weekend and to western Florida by September 22.

With ideal timing, the medium-term future of the popular night race has been secured, with a contract being signed for at least four more editions of the Marina Bay Street Circuit race.

This weekend, Massa will want to ensure he and Williams gets things right on the strategy front, and maximise any opportunity that comes their way, to bring home some solid points for the team.

Chase Carey, the chairman and CEO of Formula One, said the race was "a signature" of the World Championship calendar - and one of its most "thrilling events".

5 dead after Irma knocks out air conditioning at Florida nursing home
In Hollywood , the Rehabilitation Center said the hurricane had knocked out a transformer that powered the air conditioning . Broward officials said that the nursing home was in compliance with state and federal rules that require an evacuation plan.

SINGAPORE has secured a deal with Formula One to keep its grand prix on the calendar until 2021. That said, considering the financial problems faced in the past with the Jaypee Group that owns the Buddh International Circuit and the red tape that surrounded the event with regards to high taxation, it will be an uphill battle for the Grand Prix to make a successful return.

Here are some glimpses of the most spectacular Grand Prix.

Sebastian Vettel is the dominant driver in Singapore, having won it four times.
