Diary: 'Unhealthy' haze hangs over Singapore, then disappears

The Formula One paddock is a busy place that hosts a lot of serious business over a race weekend, but here we try to bring you some of the news stories you might otherwise miss ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix.

The organisers of the Singapore Grand Prix have stocked up on face masks to protect attendees against the haze enveloping the area. On Wednesday the city's Pollutant Standard Index (PSI) peaked at over 170 (anything between 101-200 is considered unhealthy and over 201 is very unhealthy) but has since dipped back under 100. Some PSI forecasts have predicted levels of over 200 for the weekend and the race organisers have stocked up on masks in order to distribute them to those most at risk, such as the elderly, children and pregnant women. If the PSI rating goes above 151, the masks will also be available for purchase by anyone within the circuit at a price of $2.
