Business owner prays that #F1 #SingaporeGP will not be renewed. Agree?

After a few years of F1 races, the tourist receipts, revenue and spectators turn-out should be good indicators of whether there is increasing growth, popularity and zeal in this sport among locals and foreign visitors. It's the tourist figures that we are looking for and hence, the need to weigh the returns and the costs. If there is diminishing returns, it may need a serious look. To injest new life and more crowd into this event, organisers may consider hosting another mega-event together with F1 race, to pull in a new group of people who share similar enthusiasm in automobiles, such as the International Automobile Show. Car lovers who come to see the latest fanciful cars may stay to watch F1, and vice versa for F1 fans. It bundles two event in one locality and time. After all, is it also not STB's direction to make MBS and RWS world-class venues for MICE?
