D ie Europe- Season is over. Now there are still seven races on the program for which the logisticians have to plan particularly well. The first stop on the year-end spurt is Singapore. The first freight boxes arrived at the pit facility at the beginning of the week. And since then the teams have been stowing all the material in the garages.

New paddock, shorter route

auto motor und sport arrived in the paddock on Wednesday. On the first walk through the paddock, the eye immediately fell on the new team pavilions. Instead of individual one-story huts, a huge two-story building stretches almost completely from one end of the paddock to the other. This means that the teams finally have a little more space for hospitality.

Course can even be moved slightly due to construction work. The lap length has therefore shrunk from 5,065 meters to 5,063 meters.

Mechanics work up a sweat

After all, with 61 racing laps this means that the drivers will have to cover 122 meters less on Sunday. Nevertheless, the Grand Prix will surely scratch the 2-hour limit again. And if one or the other safety car comes onto the track every year, as has been the case before, race director Charlie Whiting could call the Grand Prix a little earlier than planned.

As far as the weather is concerned, there aren't any big surprises await. As always near the equator, it is hot and humid. As if the teams weren't sweating enough in the heat of the European summer. And we actually had enough rain in the last few races. If it rains Singapore once, then it does so properly.

In the gallery we show you the pictures of the last preparations and the new buildings in the paddock.
