what do they think?

Here’s what some of the racers had to say about the latest track addition of the season.

“It’s always fun to try a new race track, particularly one which looks as unique as Yas Marina with the unusual pit-lane exit and the day/night race.” Jenson Button, Brawn GP

Rubens Barichello

“The layout of the circuit seems both fun and challenging and it will be interesting to start the race in daylight and to finish in evening conditions.” Rubens Barrichello, Brawn GP

 “It will be a new experience for everyone so it’s important that we maximise all the sessions and learn as much as we can quickly to try and find an advantage. I think the facility looks amazing…” Fernando Alonso, Renault

 “All the signs point to Abu Dhabi being another strong track for us – there are plenty of slow corners leading onto long straights, where KERS will be very advantageous. Seeing as it’s likely to be the last race for KERS, it would be fantastic to send it off with a perfect result.” Lewis Hamilton, McLaren

Force India – unexpected and brilliant!

It is as if he was unsure of what the car was really capable of until Fisichella broke Force India’s record of staying behind the pack. Right from the practice sessions at Monza, Adrian Sutil surprised us all with his performance. And to top it all off he went on to finish 4th. Woah!

 

Sutil did us proud!

When it was time for Vitantonio Liuzzi to get in the car to replace Fisichella, I had my doubts, but I guess he just proved me and a lot of others wrong! Liuzzi went out on to the tracks and drove like he owned it and all I can say is, wow! What a way to make everything of an opportunity!

Whatever the reason be, it sure is good to see Force India making a mark in F1 racing! All in all, Sutil and Liuzzi are definitely going all out and I guess we are just going to have to wait watch what the 2 racers have in store for India and the world!

Singapore just seems to be getting more exciting with every race. The world’s only night race coupled with the best deals that start at Rs.46,660, Singapore gets so much more enticing!

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!
