The 2008 Singapore Grand Prix was the 15th round of the 2008 Formula One Season. It hosted as the inaugural Singapore Grand Prix and also Formula One's first ever race to be held at night.

Ferrari's Felipe Massa qualified pole position ahead of title rival Lewis Hamilton, but he failed to win when during his first pit stop, he was prematurely released with the fuel hose still attached to his car, prompting Ferrari mechanics to travel down the pit lane to remove it.

Renault's Fernando Alonso was the race's winner, having started from 15th on the grid. Williams's Nico Rosberg finished second while Hamilton came in third on the podium, extending his championship lead ahead of Massa. Alonso's victory would come into controversy the next year as it was revealed that his team mate Nelson Piquet Jr was ordered to crash to benefit Alonso from winning.
