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!

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!

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!

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?

The BEST deal by far!

In my previous blog on the deals available for the Singapore Formula 1 race, I put down a couple of package options. But guess what, the packages just got better.

With it almost being time for the race, I expected the rates of packages to sky rocket. Surprisingly Travel Tours has come out with 2 new packages that are way more reasonable. Yes, that’s what I said, Travel tours has brought down the prices!

So now with the revised package of Rs.46,660* you get your air tickets, your stay and your F1 tickets! I already thought Travel Tours had the best deals but now they’re even better! The other package they’re offering is Rs.48,000.

The other package that comes closest is the package Mercury is offering. They’re package is Rs.47,000 but it EXCLUDES your airfare! For a complete F1 package to Singapore, Rs.46,000* seems just right to me. Let me know what you think.

interesting… Best deals to F1 Singapore 2009

2009 has been a slow year in every way, except on the race track. And is also the year of the biggest Formula 1 event in Singapore. So for all you F1 fans who are planning on being where all the action happens. We have the answer to all your questions and troubles.

I definitely want  my experience in Singapore to be hassle-free so I have been doing my bit of research. There were 3 options for me to choose from, Kuoni, Mercury and Travel Tours.

Now I don’t know about you, but I’m looking for the best deals that include everything. A hassle free holiday, a good view of the race and an accommodation that doesn’t involve some dingy hotel! I mean I want my money’s worth and that’s not too much to ask.

To give you a rather brief summary of the packages offered, Kuoni is offering a package of Rs.47,000  (per person) that only includes your 3 night stay and a WALK ABOUT pass! So this means you dish out so much and then spend some more on your air travel!

As for Mercury Travels, you pay Rs.70,000 (per person) and get your stay for 3 nights, an Esplanade Grandstand ticket and economy class air travel. I thought not bad.

But then I came across Travel Tours. Now this is the clincher. For a package of Rs.52,000 (per person), I’m getting a 3 night stay at a 5 star hotel, I’m getting a Bay Grandstand ticket and air travel on a top end flight! It is pretty obvious don’t you think? Plus you stand to win some exciting prizes. Check out these packages.

I mean do the math. Travel Tours are offering the BEST deals for an F1 fan!! If there’s something you’ve heard of, go on and tell me about it!!

Singapore Grand Prix goes green!

For all you champions of the earth, there is some green at the end of the fuel hose.
The one sport most condemned for its gas-guzzling ways is taking some serious steps to reduce its carbon footprint. And Singapore has been one of the first to implement it.
The use of renewable energy resources like sun, wind, water, geo-thermal, tidal and osmosis is being used to bring down the whopping figure of 500-600 mega watts of power!
Yes, it doesn’t change the number of liters consumed, approximately 75 liters for every 100 kms. If every race track is approximately 300 kms and there are 10 tracks, the math is simple but the number more than just a little disturbing!
But I believe they are revving in the right direction!
