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!

Action packed F1 racing!

There are about 18 days to go for the Singapore Grand Prix. The only Night Race in the world is back and is bringing with a whole lot of action.

Was the Singapore Grand Prix a real challenge last year? What better way than to hear what the drivers had to say.

Lewis Hamilton, ‘A positive end to a difficult weekend at this fantastic new venue. Also, this is not a track where overtaking is easy. The first night race in Formula 1 history was great fun.’

Timo Glock, ‘It was quite tough out there in these conditions and with such a bumpy track the car was not very comfortable to drive; I am sure I will feel the effects tomorrow.’

Sebastian Vettel, ‘ The hardest elements in the race were dealing with the heat and concentrating not to make any mistakes, as it could be very easy to clip a kerb. It was one of the toughest races of the season.’

Robert Kubica, ‘ The race was physically very hard. There are so many bumps, I hope the organisers will work on the surface for next year. On top of that, the visibility was getting worse and worse as I was getting tired.’

Hmmm . . . with the best in the biz finding Singapore rather challenging, can you imagine the treat that is in store for the spectators?

Singapore sure has the makings for a perfect F1 experience. It gives you a Night Race, a Street Race, loads of entertainment and so much more action on the track!

Just before I sign off, I thought it would be best that I quote Force India’s new driver’s take on the Singapore Grand Prix.

Vitantonio Liuzzi, ‘Singapore would have been tougher, because I don’t know the circuit, and everyone complained last year that it was very physical.’

F1 Singapore 2008!

Just to give you a better idea of how BIG the Singapore Grand Prix is, I have put together another interview by someone who was actually there at the first ever Formula One night race! Tilak, an architect based in Bangalore vows that is an experience of a life time and he will not hesitate to go again and again – it’s an unbeatable formula, he says!

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

F1 and holiday with friends what a combo… I chose  to go coz it was the only night race in the world, can u imagine, shutting out the streets of ur city and having a race… wow..

2. Did you use the internet at all for tickets and accomodation?

Yeah…generally about the F1 , the routes, info on how they went about planning the race..general stuff..

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

I would love to.. so much fun.. 

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

Yes of course! The pulse of that place by itself is amazing for a holiday… coupled with F1, it  couldn’t get better… the whole country revolves around F1 for theses three days… Singapore becomes one big party place… spend a couple of days before and after the race to look around also… in my opinion.. 5-6 days of holiday..brilliant… I’ll give u a better way to explain it to us as Indians… the tension and pulse of watching a cricket match at home on tv, and watching it in the stadium… they are two different things…both can be enjoyable in different ways, but being there is a once in a lifetime experience..must do…

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

The Renault driver Nelson Piquet Jr, his car crashed in right in  front of us, and then we could see how the car was lifted up taken out… woooooohhh…. we just saw this car coming into our turn and then crash…really heart stopping…

Do you really need any more reasons to be in Singapore this September?

Mallya loses Fisichella to Ferrari!

With the announcement of Fisichella’s move to Ferrari, come a lot of mixed emotions. While there are those who say it was totally expected, there are those who believe he should have stayed on with Force India.

However, one who is grabbing a lot of the spotlight is Dr. Vijay Mallya. Now, he claims there was no exchange of money, YA RIGHT! For the businessman he is known to be, Mr Mallya seems to have put no thought into that statement he made. Does he really expect us to believe the fact that he just let Fisichella go?

Anyway, for more on circuit news, Vitantonio Liuzzi, Force India’s test driver is currently the top contender as Fisichella’s replacement. Although, Dr. Mallya has gone on to say that he will be testing a couple of racers for the vacant seat.

With Ferrari saying Fisichella can make a significant contribution this season in terms of points, it is most certain that he is getting all the attention he needs from the team. What a dream come true for the Italian!
Another question that comes to mind amidst all of this talk of patriotism is, how long will it be before we see an Indian in a Force India car?

Also let us not forget, we’re soon going to have to review yet another new recruit’s performance!

Ya right!!

With Fisichella’s win, there were reports of how there was no reason for India to rejoice considering the fact that apart from Dr. Mallya there was nothing Indian about it. And then there’s the Sports Minister’s comment of Formula 1 not being a sport.

So I ask you, with this being the sports ministry’s take on Formula 1, are we ever going to see an INDIAN in a Formula One car? I think not. However, F1 Supremo Bernie Ecclestone has gone on to say that India will see its very own F1 circuit in 2011. It would be a sight would it not, for India to have a circuit of its own but no driver!

In his latest concepts of having 30 race circuits, Bernie Ecclestone is said to be giving importance to any track ready to pay $30,000,000 in sanctioning fees. Meaning any track can be replaced by those willing to pay! There are some concerns with the fact that the new tracks don’t have as much character as the old ones like Silverstone and Spa. However new tracks have more than their fair share of excitement going by the excitement generated about the track in Singapore. So there is some gain and some loss. And for us Indians it will be nice to be known for a sport other than cricket!

Now, for news that could get you to smile, Fisichella has said that he is concentrating on racing in Monza for Force India. Phew! It is about time we heard news like that don’t you think?
