2017 Singapore GP: The social red carpet

Timothy Wee Timothy Wee

With the 2017 Singapore GP just days away, Singapore plays host to the who’s who in the F1 world. We bring you the best of what they have been up to in Singapore thus far.

Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo tried their hands at tackling the local king of fruits – durian!

Though not entirely sold on the pungent fruit, Ricciardo did go on to try another quintessential local dish…

In the meantime, McLaren-Honda Belgian driver Stoffel Vandoore brought out our #FOMO by teasing us in his baller room, complete with a view to die for.

Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas decided to keep things cool and simple with his night view of the Singapore city skyline.

While Haas F1 driver Kevin Magnussen chose to busk in the Singapore sun,  schooling us on how to stay ‘cool’ in the Singapore heat.

The 24-year-old Dane can’t seem to wait for this weekend, sharing his favourite bits of the Marina Bay Street Circuit.

But the drivers weren’t the only ones taking in the local pre-race festivities. Singaporean celebrities, desperate to get in on the fun, partied it up Heineken Sustainability Fashion Collection Party at Lau Pa Sat yesterday.

Local musician Aarika Lee, part of this year’s F1 entertainment line-up, assembled her very own #GirlSquad consisting of fashion designer Elyn Wong, actresses Anita Kapoor and Janice Koh.

And lastly, and this is a good one, American pop singer Ariana Grande was out exploring the town. The #onelovemanchester concert organiser/performancer was taking in the sights at Gardens By The Bay and the nightly light show, Garden Rhapsody.

The 24-year-old performer, one of the musical acts slotted for Saturday night F1 concert, was having such a good time that she broke out in karaoke!

Just a little taste of what we can expect on Saturday, we guess. Oh Ariana, you tease.
