Kid friendly F1 weekend
The F1 weekend is finally here. We share with you the top 5 things you can do with the kids to maximise their F1 experience!
Road closures, bright lights and screeching brakes signal the start of the Singapore Grand Prix. We understand that the races might not be kid-friendly with the high speed chases and jarring noise. So here are 5 things you can do with family this weekend without burning a hole in your pocket and eardrums.
Get your Ferrari on
The Marina Bay Sands will be the backdrop of the night race and to celebrate the 5th Singapore Grand Prix, Ferrari is hosting an exhibition tracing its history from 1929 to the elite super cars of today. The exhibition is currently on till the 24th of September and as a special treat, you can get a glimpse of the F12berlinetta, the latest in Ferrari’s line of V12s and the fastest, most powerful Ferrari road car ever built!
Marina Bay Sands is located at 10 Bayfront Avenue.
Shop the races
Head to the Puma Motorsport Red Cube where you can check out the latest kit for Mercedes AMG and Scuderia Ferrari teams as well as experience what it’s like behind the wheel in an F1 car.
This special pop up store that opened its doors on September 11 is kitted out with an F1 simulator that allows you to relive the excitement of racing a F1 car. You also get a chance to meet F1 driver Nico Rosberg when a minimum purchase of SGD100 from the motorsport range is made.
Puma Motorsport Red Cube is located outside Raffles City Shopping Centre at 252 North Bridge Road.
Race to your party
Skip those racing parties at the bars and clubs and throw your own party. Invite your friends, cater food, and decorate the house with pictures of your favourite drivers and cars.
To keep the kids and adults entertained, have a special area where you can set up your game console with games such as Mario Kart and the new F1 Race Stars.
Go for an F1 themed brunch
Take your kids to La Villa to indulge in some F1 mania as they serve brunch with a side of mini race cars and bouncy castle.
While your little ones race and bounce around, channeling their favourite racer, you can kick back and relax with La Villa’s popular Prosecco Brunch.
You can pretend you are in Italy, hometown of Ferrari, as you sip the Italian wine and indulge in their authentic Italian spread which include salami and funghi pizza as well as antipasti and Italian cheeses.
La Villa is located at 341 River Valley Road, #01-03 Singapore 238372 and this special brunch is served from 11.30am - 2.30pm on 22nd and 23rd of September only.

Ready, Set, Go!
Of course, we can’t have a list on the F1 weekend without including the races itself. So if you have older kids who love cars and races, this is the perfect opportunity to bond and soak up the F1 atmosphere in all it’s speed and ferocity.
You have the option of buying a 1/2/3 day pass. We recommend getting the walkabout ticket as it allows you to move around the designated areas freely. Passholders also get special privileges such as unlimited free rides on the Singapore Flyer, discounts at participating shops around the Marina Bay belt and catching international acts live in concert. Oh and don’t forget those earplugs!
