SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) looks set to take over as the title sponsor of Singapore's Formula One night race.

SIA took two full-page advertisements in Tuesday's Straits Times -- the first stating that there will be a new name on the track this year, and the second announcing the 2014 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix.

SingTel has been the title sponsor since the inaugural race in 2008.

A SingTel spokeswoman referred queries to SIA, while SIA spokesman Nicholas Ionides said the Singapore flag carrier will hold a briefing later on Tuesday morning. - CNA/ac
