From I.Z.:

In Feb­ru­ary, Today news­pa­per held its Name That Turn con­test and invited every­one to come up with unique names for turns 1, 7 and 10 of For­mula 1’s his­toric night race in the heart of the Lion City! Today, I can pro­vide you with this exclu­sive, direct from the folks from Today news­pa­per and the Sin­ga­pore Grand Prix organ­is­ers. They have decided to name all 24 turns after local bloggers!

Leonard Thomas who is one of the judges says, “Ini­tially we called for sug­ges­tions to name only three of the turns but we were over­whelmed by the response so we thought we should name all 24 turns instead. One of the sug­ges­tions was to name them after local blog­gers. We thought it’s a great idea and decided to scrap the con­test all together and we will name the turns after these blog­gers our­selves. I can reveal to you three of the turns will be named after I.Z. Reloaded, Mr Brown and Miyagi. We will announce other names soon.”

F1 Supremo Bernie Eccle­stone says, “Nam­ing all the turns and cor­ners at the Marina Bay cir­cuit after these pop­u­lar Sin­ga­pore blog­gers is good for the Sin­ga­pore Grand Prix and the world­wide tele­vi­sion audi­ence. Peo­ple like to iden­tify excit­ing cor­ners and we are extremely happy with these name choices.”
