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!

Host to another FIRST!

F1 Singapore 2008 saw a whole number of firsts. It was the FIRST Formula One race ever to be held in Singapore plus Singapore was home to Asia’s FIRST street race! Now come on that can’t be all, now can it? To add to its list of firsts, Singapore took it a couple of notches higher, or should I say a couple of VOLTAGES higher and F1 Singapore 2008 saw the FIRST night race in the history of Formula One racing.

So it is easy to say that whoever made it to last year’s Singapore Grand Prix sure was a part of history in the making! But wait, don’t lose heart if you weren’t there, 2009 has a whole new FIRST of its kind.

Having dominated the F1 frenzy with all its firsts in 2008, Singapore Grand Prix 2009 is going all out to dominate the entertainment quotient of this season! Another FIRST for the sport is Singapore’s line up of artists from around the world.

The world’s only night race is where every racing fan wants to be. And I guess it’s exactly where the who’s who of entertainment want to be too. Beyonce, The Black Eyed Peas, Travis, N*E*R*D, Simple Minds are just the tip of the iceberg. With 4 days packed with entertainment around the circuit, Singapore has gone that extra mile to give every ticket holder his entire money’s worth.

So there’s the world’s only night race, I’m sorry, make that the world’s only NIGHT STREET RACE, and this incredible line up of chart toppers and there’s the fact that Singapore is just 4.5 hours away, I don’t see why it’s not worth it.
