Singapore - Singapore hosted the 2010 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix – the world’s only night race for the third consecutive year from 24 to 26 September, welcoming visitors from all over the world during this exhilarating period.

As one of the Marina Bay race track hotels, Conrad Centennial Singapore was certainly in the centre of all the exciting action. The hotel had the privilege to host the McLaren team, including F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton and the talented Jenson Button; Formula One president and CEO, Bernie Ecclestone; F1 in Schools as well as the famous Amber Lounge party for the third consecutive year. Guests were also treated to a spectacular display of McLaren racing cars at the hotel lobby during the race period.

“It has certainly been an exciting F1 week for all of us here at the Conrad Centennial Singapore. We were privileged to have been able to welcome and host the McLaren team, F1 in Schools and some high profile personalities during the F1 season. I am also very proud of our team members, who not only displayed the true Conrad spirit during this highly demanding period but also their dedication and hard work for making the event a big success for the hotel and most importantly for making our guests feel right at home,” said Heinrich Grafe, general manager, Conrad Centennial Singapore.
