This new deal has come about thanks to the return of the French Grand Prix, with Paul Ricard set to host the race when it rejoins the calendar in 2018.

Formula 1 confirmed the deal on Friday (Sep 15), which comes after positive discussions between Formula 1 and Singapore Grand Prix organisers this month.

Iswaran said the decision by Malaysia, which will hold its last grand prix in two weeks' time, had no bearing on Singapore's move to stay in Formula One.

The rain has now stopped ahead of the driver parade, but the possibility of showers remain up to and during the race, and with no previous running under floodlights before in Singapore - this is the tenth Grand Prix in the country and all of the previous nine have been dry - Grosjean is anxious that the spray from the cars might make driving conditions near-on impossible.

It will be extremely tough for India to find a way back on the ever-crowded F1 calendar with more countries showing interest in hosting the high-profile race.

F1 chairman Chase Carey said he was thrilled about the new contract.

Liberty Media had taken complete control of F1 in January, ending Bernie Ecclestone's 40-year reign at the helm of affairs.

Carey has big plans to expand F1's reach, both in terms of adding more races and increasing its digital appeal, an area largely neglected by Ecclestone. We have talked about the opportunity to grow the sport in Asia as well as the Americas.

Officials said on Friday that the cost of hosting the race has been reduced to S$135 million ($100 million or 84 million euros).

Because it is a street circuit, like the iconic Monaco GP, the planning implications could be troublesome if any changes were made.
