F1 in Singapore?

I was watching practice for the Malaysian GP (yes, I DVRed F1 practice, I'm a loser) and was thinking about how much I like the Sepang circuit. It's one of my favorite tracks, though Monaco is miles ahead of the rest of the pack. I've often wished that there were more true street courses in F1. A few minutes later, the announcing crew mentioned that on Monday, Bernie Ecclestone is supposed to announce whether or not Singapore will get an F1 race. The current thought is that they would use a city street circuit and run it as a night race. I just about had to change my pants. How cool would that be? It would be like something out of Gran Turismo.

There's a map of the course available here. Make sure you click satellite to see all the buildings around the track. I'm sure Formula 1 will find a way to screw this up, but it would really be awesome if they pull it off.

I'll have a wrap-up of the Malaysian GP sometime early next week, with the race on Easter, I'm not sure when I'll be able to watch it.
