Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone has cast doubt over the future of the sport in Southeast Asia by telling a German magazine that Singapore no longer wants to host a Grand Prix after its current deal expires next year.The Singapore race costs some 150 million Singapore dollar ($105.04 million) to put on every year, 60 percent of which is funded by the government.Crowds, which topped 100,000 on all three days in the first year, have declined, however, with this year's race averaging 73,000 spectators for each day, down from 87,000 in 2015 .In the first eight months of 2016, before the F1 race, the number of visitors was up 10.3 percent from the same period of 2015, at 11.3 million.
