Watch this talking bird predict the winner of F1's Singapore GP

At any sporting event, there's no shortage of know-it-all buffoons. What there is a shortage of, is know-it-all buffoons that happen to be birds.

2012 Singapore Grand Prix lights up the night [spoilers]

Though you might call the Singapore Grand Prix one of the newer expansion races on the Formula One calendar, its roots actually trace back to 1966 when it was run as part of the (long since defunct) Formula Libre.

BREAKING: Renault F1 placed on suspended two-year, Briatore banned indefinitely?

The World Motor Sports Council took only 90 minutes to reach a verdict in the case of Crashgate – wherein former driver Nelson Piquet, Jr. intentionally chucked his car into the wall at last year's Singapore GP to hand the win to Renault teammate Fernando Alonso.

BREAKING: Flavio Briatore and Pat Symonds leave Renault F1

Flavio Briatore might have wished that he had been a little kinder to client and former Renault F1 driver Nelson Piquet. After Piquet was sacked for non-performance following the Hungarian Grand Prix this year, he sought revenge by saying that Briatore and team engineering director Pat Symonds instructed him to crash during last year's Singapore GP.

Sixty-eight miles of power cable will provide juice to 1,500 light projectors mounted on 240 pylons around the track. What does that mean? It means three billion watts of power -- about four times brighter than a sports stadium. And that might make it the only night time race that requires sunglasses.
