What does this mean?

Here we were waiting for Renault’s hearing on Monday. Little did we think there would be so much drama way before the hearing even! The team is not going to be disputing the allegations made by Piquet Jr. But the juiciest bit of it all is the bit on the resignations.

Renault’s managing director, Flavio Briatore and its executive director of engineering, Pat Symonds have reportedly left the team.

Renault's masterminds!

After a prolonged denial of the accusations made against the team, by Piquet Jr. and his father, the team released the following press release,

“The ING Renault F1 Team will not dispute the recent allegations made by the FIA concerning the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix. It also wishes to state that its managing director, Flavio Briatore and its executive director of engineering, Pat Symonds, have left the team. Before attending the hearing before the FIA World Motor Sport Council in Paris on 21 September 2009, the team will not make any further comment.”

So was Alonso’s win at Singapore last year really a fluke?

WOW! It is almost time for round 2 of the Singapore Grand Prix and last year’s race is back in the spotlight! I guess it is definitely safe to say that this is another first at the Singapore Grand Prix!

Who will it be?

Force India’s, Vijay Mallya says that the team is now ready to use McLaren’s simulator to test Indian racer Karan Chandok for the role of the team’s test driver. But that is not all. Dr. Mallya went on to say that Karan would have to prove his capability.

The 25 year old from Chennai is currently racing in the GP2 Series and is said to be a strong contender for the role as test driver after Liuzzi’s switch to the race car.

Ex-test driver, Neel Jani is also in the running for Force India’s test driver. With experience of testing for Sauber, Red Bull and Toro Rosso, he might just be too tough a competition.

Since, the test drivers are being chosen for the team’s 2010 line up, I guess there is time and we will have to wait and watch.

For more action in this season, you can be as close to all the action as Force India is to the podium. With package deals to Singapore starting at Rs.46,660, Travel Tours is making sure you can be in Singapore for all the action.

Force India – unexpected and brilliant!

It is as if he was unsure of what the car was really capable of until Fisichella broke Force India’s record of staying behind the pack. Right from the practice sessions at Monza, Adrian Sutil surprised us all with his performance. And to top it all off he went on to finish 4th. Woah!

 

Sutil did us proud!

When it was time for Vitantonio Liuzzi to get in the car to replace Fisichella, I had my doubts, but I guess he just proved me and a lot of others wrong! Liuzzi went out on to the tracks and drove like he owned it and all I can say is, wow! What a way to make everything of an opportunity!

Whatever the reason be, it sure is good to see Force India making a mark in F1 racing! All in all, Sutil and Liuzzi are definitely going all out and I guess we are just going to have to wait watch what the 2 racers have in store for India and the world!

Singapore just seems to be getting more exciting with every race. The world’s only night race coupled with the best deals that start at Rs.46,660, Singapore gets so much more enticing!

Are you serious?

Rs. 46,660* that is all it costs. Yes, you can be at the Singapore Grand Prix, with the best view of the race, top notch travel and high-end accommodation.

If you are someone who says,’ I just want to go for the race and I’m really not bothered about where I stay’, you should be warned. Singapore will be completely SOLD OUT by the time the race begins. Be wise and make your reservations now. And come on if it costs you only Rs.46,000* for a plush 4star accommodation, your visa, your travel and your F1 tickets, why not?

The package deal that comes closest to this one that Travel tours is offering is the one that Kuoni has. So their package starts at Rs.47,000 that includes only your stay and a walk about pass. This package does not even include your airfare!

Now if you really are confused about your options to go to the Singapore Grand Prix you could go through the comparative prices in my previous blogs Interesting!! Best deals to F1 Singapore 2009  and The BEST deal by far!
