The contract for F1's highly popular night race on the streets of the Asian city-state is set to expire, with Singapore officials and Bernie Ecclestone reportedly clashing over the sanctioning fee.

"All of us hope that it will be renewed because it's such an important race on the calendar," said Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg.

Coulthard, a former McLaren and Red Bull driver and now a commentator for British television, sounded confident F1's chief executive would renew the deal.

"Bernie knows how important (Singapore) is," he is quoted by the Straits Times.
