The F1 world is back and descends on Singapore this weekend for the 2022 Singapore Grand Prix. It marks the first race in three weeks and the first trip to Singapore since 2019.

The race weekend gets started on Friday with two practices. That’s followed by a practice and qualifying on Saturday, and then the race on Sunday. All five events are taking place in the evening in Singapore, which is 12 hours ahead of ET in the US.

Singapore could have some rain coming in this weekend, which could make for a slick course for the race. Humidity will be north of 80% all three days and there’s a decent chance of rain in the forecast throughout the weekend. They miss the particularly rainy weather by a week, but it could still get wet.
