Calling out to F1 fans - Been to Singapore GP? Give us your fan experience feedback

In a recent post about the future of F1 we mentioned the Singapore GP and why it has become one of the most important races on the F1 calendar.

The organisers have reached out to us to ask for feedback from the many JA on F1 readers who have no doubt been to the Marina Bay Circuit since the inaugural race in 2008. Our 2015 reader survey came back with interesting data that 30% of the JA on F1 audience attends one or two Grands Prix a year and that 39% of the audience is planning to attend a race in 2016.

So with 100 days to go until this year's Singapore GP, we thought it would be interesting to hear from readers who have attended the Singapore event; what was the experience like, where did you sit, what happened and what did you like/dislike about the event?

Leave your feedback in the Comments Section below - thanks for taking the time.

* Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen fans may be interested to learn that there is a seat at this year's Singapore GP called the Red Bull Turbo Seat - It's a seat in the main pit grandstand opposite the Red Bull garage, but this package also gives fans a chance to get closer to the action; anyone with one of these seats will get to rub shoulders with Red Bull Racing drivers Ricciardo and Verstappen as well as Team Principal Christian Horner at an exclusive Red Bull Racing event held in the Singapore Formula One Paddock Club on Thursday evening (15 September). We've not seen this tried before and it will be interesting to see what the take up is like.

Ricciardo qualified and finished second last year. And after his recent pole position but ultimate race disappointment in Monaco, he's targeted Singapore as a winnable race.
