Monza!!

A track with a long history, it is easily one of the most prestigious tracks of the circuit. Those streets have many a story to tell. Its curves being rather dangerous some of the most tragic F1 accidents have taken place on this circuit.

1. 1928 – the death of driver Emilio Materassi and 27 spectators. After which the races were moved to the high-speed track and modifications were made. The races resumed in 1932.

2. In 1933 3 drivers were killed and some major modifications of chicanes and straights were implemented.

3. 1961 Death of driver Wolfgang Von Trips and 14 spectators!

4. There have been constant modifications to the circuit ever since, although drivers still complain that there aren’t enough run-off areas.

It just goes to show, F1 is such a dynamic sport and one must stay on their toes to be up to speed.

Singapore is doing an admirable job as well, to smooth out complaints of the roads being too bumpy and some chicanes being too narrow.

You can actually be up close and personal to all the F1 action at Singapore with the best deals starting from Rs.46,660 and attractive EMI schemes.  So what are you waiting for? Wake up and smell the burning rubber at Singapore!

Lights… camera… Renault!

It is almost time for the Singapore Grand Prix and the latest buzz is around Renault and their stellar performance at Singapore Grand Prix 2008.

Just to refresh your memory, Alonso won the Singapore Grand Prix 2008. Renault celebrated the victory without much attention to fellow racer, Piquet’s crash. Questions of Alonso’s early pit stop and Piquet’s crash being pre-meditated did go around the rumour mill, but nothing nailed the coffin shut.

2009 saw Piquet being sacked from the team and predictably, a few weeks later came his accusations of Renault’s ‘dirty plan’ at the Singapore GP. Piquet went on record to say that Alonso was given way more attention by the team and his manager Briatore was his worst enemy.

Now, the latest gossip in Formula 1 fraternity is that Piquet has officially declared Alonso’s win last year was a set up. His latest allegations include Renault’s strategy of an early pit stop for Alonso and the team asking Piquet to crash so as to give team mate Alonso an added advantage over the rest during the safety lap.

With Renault being called in for a hearing on the matter, the team faces the risk of being disqualified from the rest of the season.

So, is Piquet just playing spoil sport or is Renault really in for it?

I’ve been saying it all this while, and I’m going to say it again, at the world’s only night race, anything can happen. And don’t tell me you don’t want to be a part of all the drama, STAGED or NOT!
