No F1 in Singapore

18 04 2005 – Every day updated Formula One news! (For Formula 1 news, results, photos and more!)

Don’t believe everything you read, warned the man supposedly at the helm of a ‘Singapore grand prix.’ Matthew Lee, president of the Motor Sport Association there, said recent media articles left him ‘surprised.’

Contradicting supposed statements, Lee said he hasn’t met with the Tourism Board since 2003. “We could hold a grand prix,” he conceded, “but whether we’d get permission is something else. And the SMSA is too small to be a F1 promoter.”

Meanwhile, Singapore prime minister until 1990, Lee Kuan Yew, said he regretted not building a grand prix F1 track. “F1 makes no sense to me,” he said at a business forum, “but I am sure it would have made Singapore buzz.”

No F1 in Singapore… So SAD!
