    It's the Formula 1 season yet again at the only night race on the F1 calender. F1 comes to town to Singapore for hte 4th time since 2008 at the Marina Bay street circuit. With only a few races remaining, Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull Racing team has the chance to be crowned the world champion if he wins the race and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso doesn't finish better than 5th. Here's a short quite to shutter bugs on the corners which they can grab good angles of the million dollar cars speeding around the Singapore street circuit. The above image is at turn 13, where cars passes the Anderson bridge before making a left turn onto Esplanade bridge.
