'a certain moderator'
The island state hosts Formula One's first night race, with the circuit taking in a number of famous landmarks such as Raffles Boulevard, Anderson Bridge and the Singapore Flyer ferris wheel.
But it is the timing of the event that is all the talk, with the two practice sessions on Friday starting at 7pm and 9.30pm local time.
The qualifying session on Saturday gets under way at 10pm, whilst the race begins at 8pm, all under the most sophisticated lightning system ever produced for a sports event.
There will be almost 110,000 metres of power cables, 240 steel pylons and around 1,500 light projectors, creating illumination four times brighter than anything used at sports stadia.
For the drivers, the unusual timings mean an entirely different approach to the weekend is required, and for current championship leader Hamilton he has put his faith in team doctor Aki Hintsa.
"Singapore is going to be a unique challenge for every member of the team," said Hamilton.
"Our doctor has prepared a very precise schedule for the drivers to stick to because all the sessions are so late in the day.
"Essentially we must not acclimatise to the local time, which is totally different to how we normally operate.
"Our training programmes ensure that over a race weekend we are at peak performance during the afternoons and as a result we are going to be staying in European time so this doesn't get disrupted.
"Apparently not acclimatising is much harder than adapting, because your body naturally wants to change.
"For the drivers, our meal, waking and sleeping rhythms will all be in European time.
"For example we will get up early afternoon for breakfast, have supper at 1am and go to bed at around 3am.
