This year's Singapore Grand Prix will feature F1 Masters on the race programme for the first time.

The FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship and Masters HGP will combine to showcase a grid of Formula One cars from 1966 – 1985 for an F1 Masters race, taking place over the grand prix weekend of September 19-21. Ron Maydon, the President and Founder of Masters, said it was important to be able to take historic cars to modern F1 venues.

“We will bring 20 of the most iconic North American and European cars from Formula One history,” Maydon said. “It will be the first time that the motor-racing fans in Singapore will see such classic cars race in action. We are confident that they will enjoy the sights and sounds of a super-fast history lesson just as much as watching their current Formula One heroes.”

Colin Syn, Deputy Chairman, Singapore GP Pte Ltd said the inclusion of the Masters would help increase the variety of content on offer during the race weekend.

“The Masters are a great addition to our support track action,” Syn said. “We are delighted to select the best of the best historic Formula One cars to race under Singapore's lights just like their modern counterparts at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. Fans can look forward to the thrilling spectacle of racing history set against the stunning Singapore skyline.”

Whenever I hear "F1 Masters" I imagine something completely different. It would be heaps good if they had another racing series for retired F1 drivers, give them all the same car with basic setup changes of course, and just have a short fun race when F1 isn't using the main track. Imagine the likes of Hakkinen, Coulthard, Barrichello, and Montoya racing each other around for fun!
