Singapore Airlines will continue to act as the title sponsor for the Singapore Grand Prix for the next two years after confirming a contract extension with Formula 1 officials earlier this week.

Singapore Airlines first became the title sponsor for the night race at the Marina Bay Street Circuit in 2014 on a two-year deal, before signing an extension for a further two years that expired after last September's race.

An extended deal was announced on Wednesday, stretching to the 2019 race, with the existing contract for Singapore to remain on the F1 calendar running until 2021.

"The night race is the highlight of Singapore's sporting calendar and we are thrilled to continue as its title sponsor," Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Choon Phong said.

"We look forward to showcasing this event to the world and enhancing both tourism and sports for the benefit of Singaporeans and visitors alike."

F1 CEO Chase Carey added: "The strength of Singapore as a destination is an example of the excitement F1 is creating around the globe and having prestigious partners such as SIA shows our ambitious vision is shared by the market-leading companies around the world."

The 2018 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix will take place on September 16.
