Singapore Grand Prix: How will haze affect the drivers and fans?

Formula 1 returns to the streets of Singapore this weekend – but the race coincides with the city’s worst air quality in three years.
“It’s not just a safety consideration for the drivers,” meteorology expert Professor Koh Tieh Yong of the Singapore University of Social Sciences told the BBC.
During the race weekend, city authorities and race organisers will monitor haze levels and “respond accordingly” Jean Ng, executive director with the Singapore Tourism Board, told the BBC.
But – even though F1 fans and drivers may be uncomfortable – the situation is far worse in neighbouring Malaysia and especially Indonesia, where haze levels are significantly higher.
