The Singapore Grand Prix venue has won the award for Motor Sport Facility of the Year. The award was announced November 11 at the annual Motor Sport World awards in Cologne, Germany.

Fernando Alonso won the event for Renault, Rosberg obtained a rare podium finish in 2nd for Williams, and eventual World-Champion Lewis Hamiliton took 3rd for McLaren.
