Surprisingly in qualifying, Martin Brundle stated that a source told him that the Bahrain Grand Prix would be a night race from next year.

Well, today's Bahrain GP was outstanding - so the event itself is exciting enough now with the Pirelli tyres.

As always, however, night racing is automatically more exciting than daytime racing. The show spices up at night, perhaps there might be more chances of a Safety Car period at night?

Various detailed studies have shown how much more exciting that night racing is than daytime racing - indications suggest that evening racing is 60 % more exciting than daytime racing.

Trouble is, once one does it, everyone wants to do it.

The USP of Singapore is that it's an 'exclusive' night race. If other races start going to the dark side tongue, then the idea starts losing its originality, and the next thing you know half the season will be under floodlights.

This would be the ideal outcome, all the Eastern races in particular need to be at night, and perhaps some European races too. More people watch TV at night than in the daytime.

The Singapore Grand Prix is certainly a pioneering event on the calendar. The 2008 Singapore Grand Prix saw much innovation, like Nelson Piquet Jr deliberately crashing to trigger a Safety Car period this was a great moment in F1 history.

The advert strapline should be: "Check out the unmissable scandal that breaks out on the streets at night - only one race to witness this excitement"

Personally I'm sold.

If we could also get some double-file restarts at night, the show would go through the roof.
