Sep.22 (GMM) There is "no chance" the Singapore grand prix will be called off due to poor visibility, race organisers said on Thursday.
It is a cloudy and humid day in the city-state, with weather forecasts predicting possible rain throughout the race weekend.Additionally, forest fires in nearby Indonesia have cast a haze over the skies, with the pollutant standards index recording a mere "moderate" air quality according to the Straits Times Indonesia.Together with the risk of rain in the artificial light, there have been suggestions the race could be called off."There's a regulation that says that if we can't see a certain distance, then we don't race," confirmed McLaren driver Jenson Button.But race organiser Singapore GP's technical director Lawrence Foo said visibility is not a major concern."I (have) noticed it, but out in the open, it's not too bad. We don't expect any problems", he said.
