It’s like no other F1 grand prix i’ve been to!

In response to the blog posts that have been up, there was a response from a fellow blogger who is an ardent traveller and was at the Singapore Grand Prix last year. So I asked him a couple of questions, and this is what he had to say:

1. How did you capture the essence of F1 Singapore?

As a photographer I’m always taking photos! The grand prix is a great challenge as they’re moving so fast! The Singapore grand prix is such a beautiful sight too with the lighting. I also was able to make a short movie of the race telling the full story of the race in 7 minutes. from our view and the TV broadcast. It should help jog a few people’s memories!

2. Why did you decide to go? Why did you choose Singapore?

After visiting Singapore for the first tim in 2005 my wife and I were instantly hooked on the city. It’s culture, tidy streets, friendly people. When we heard they would not only have a street race but a night race the chance to come back was too great! It’s a very safe and happy city.

3. Would you like to go to Singapore again to watch the race?

We would happy come back to Singapore ever year to watch the race. It’s like no other F1 grand prix i’ve been to. Mingling with the drivers pre-race in the Swiss hotel, walking along the flood-lit track after qualifying. It’s just a spectacular event in a very spectacular city.

4. Would you recommend Singapore to everyone? Or would it just be to watch F1 live?

I’d definitely recommend visiting Singapore any time of year. The weather is consistently hot, there’s so many great districts to visit, the food is amazing and the night life is fantastic. It’s got it all.

5. 1 heart-stopping moment. (If there are more, please tell us!)

Watching Lewis Hamilton overtaking David Coulthard right in front of us was pretty special. Seeing Fellipe Massa driving off with his fuel hose is definitely another. Dancing like crazy to DJ Carl Cox after qualifying was also amazing. We met so many great people and even made new friends.

So, you heard him. Singapore is THE place to be to watch any F1 race. With all its brilliance in 2008, we’ll have to wait and watch what’s in store this year. Or better still BE THERE to see what happens!

Will he or will he not, that is the question?

It is barely the second day after his unexpected podium finish, and Fisichella has a lot of questions coming his way. With Ferrari having to choose from Schumacher and Badoer and now Fisichella, it seems like 2009 has as much action off the track as on the track.

If you ask me, it would be pretty unfair for Fisichella to take this opportunity to make his debut in Ferrari. But then again, it is FERRARI we are talking about. I mean it is every racer’s dream team! But then again, if Fisichella does stay with Force India and brings home more Podium finishes, he definitely will place himself as a brilliant racer!

Dr. Vijay Mallya and Fisichella

Force India - Dr. Vijay Mallya and Fisichella

With Force India’s director of business affairs going on record to say that Force India does not have a choice but to let Fisichella go, I guess only time will tell us what we are in for. We have to keep in mind our very own Dr. Vijay Mallya who is not going to let go without a fight. So, if Fisichella leaves, will Force India ever see the light of a podium finish again?

Also, if you are wondering who is going to step in for Fisichella, the team has already dropped a name. If Fisichella moves, Force India’s test driver Vitantonio Luizzi, is said to step in his seat.

Whoever, said the circuits were where all the action happens, sure did not think of 2009 and all that the season has brought along with it. Is it soon going to be time for another blog on THE NEW RECRUIT? I hope not!

It was a fabulous experience!

When it comes to a travel agency putting together my package, I only want the best deals. The last few blogs have been about the best deals to watch the Formula One race in Singapore. I thought it best to put up a video testimonial of someone who was at the race last year.

The video talks about his experience with Travel Tours and the great job that they did and what a thrilling experience it is to be in Singapore for the f1 season!

So I delivered as promised. I guess it would be best that you watch this space for more action on F1 Singapore 2009.

India on the F1 map

Fisichella

Fisichella

It all began with pole position on Saturday. Little did anyone expect Saturday’s results let alone Sunday’s! With Fisichella winning pole position on Saturday, it was still not obvious that he would deliver on Sunday. But what a race!

The first couple of minutes at Spa were just a preview to the action that was to follow. With Romain Grosjean coming in the way of Button’s race and with Hamilton and Jaime Alguersuari bearing the consequences of the crash, the race was all about the action right from the start.

Force India, for 2 years now had placed itself at the tail end of every standing. As if to say ‘enough is enough’ Fisichella put on a show that is bound to go down in history.

If you ask me, Fisichella had a real chance to stand on the podium. Raikonnen’s comfort with the Belgian circuit and KERS put him at an undeniable advantage. As for Fisichella’s win, Force India proved a lot of people wrong on Sunday and I have a feeling this is just the beginning!

For the Ferrari fans, it was just wonderful to see the red car up ahead for the first time this season.

2009 definitely has been a season of so many things unexpected. I can only imagine what the last couple of races have in store. As always I am still excited about what Singapore is going to unfold!

Fisichella wins Force India’s first Pole Position of the season!

In a remarkable turn of events, Fisichella pulls the tri-coloured car to pole position today! When stalwarts like Hamilton and Alonso not even on the starting grid tomorrow’s race in Spa is going to be uber exciting! Jarno Trulli was second for Toyota, from BMW Sauber’s Nick Heidfeld and Brawn GP’s Rubens Barrichello. The Red Bulls of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will start eighth and ninth.

With a lot of rather well-humoured jokes about Force India and its propensity to lead from the back. This is a happy surprise! Clocking speeds of 1:46:308 he got to the top by a difference of 87 secs! This is a surprise as McLaren’s Hamilton was at his speedy best in the afternoon with the weather being warm and pleasant.

While there have been races where the pole hasn’t guaranteed the podium, it will still be exciting to see India up in front. I can only imagine the pressure the team is under to perform.

Tomorrow I’m going to be glued to the screen! You?
