For those who aren’t fans of the sport, there are also other exciting activities lined up.

Here are five things to do this weekend (Sep 30 to Oct 2):

1. Pose with life-sized figurines of your favourite F1 drivers



For those heading to the races, there’s an exclusive pop-up booth at the F1 event ground showcasing Mighty Jaxx’s Mighty AllStars Collection, which includes the life-sized figurines of the season’s top drivers – Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.

You can also purchase the limited edition 8” premium vinyl collectibles of the current 2022 grid of drivers such as Charles Leclerc, Sebastian Vettel and Lando Norris.

2. Take a seat in a McLaren F1 race car



Besides life-sized figurines of F1 drivers, there’s also a life-sized LEGO McLaren Race Car “parked” right in front of Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza where you can sit in the driver’s seat for a photo. You can even have the photo printed out at the LEGO Photo Print for free.

Part of the LEGO Technic McLaren F1 Pop-Up Experience, the pop-up has other activities such as challenges to build a half-assembled 42141 LEGO Technic McLaren F1 Race Car set and a memory game to learn more about the functions of the many buttons on the steering wheel.

It runs till Oct 2 and is open from 11am to 9.30pm.

3. Check out a photographic exhibition documenting the Singapore Grand Prix
