Should we can the Singapore Grand Prix?

I don’t follow motor-racing, and I think I had to ask several people on Sunday night who won this year’s big race, and it was several minutes again before I realized Vettel was a person and not a brand of bottled water.

The taxi driver whose cab I rode in on Sunday night was sheepish at first when he didn’t know who won, then he seemed pleased that I shared his indifference at the world’s only night Formula One race.

The conversation turned to other things and cabbie witticisms soon took over the tone of the ride:

“Singapore night life very active. Got Night Race, got Night Safari and got Night Bird Park”.

“Night Bird Park? Got meh?”

“Got! Geylang lor!”
