    Some pics from the Singapore F1 Grand Prix 2009

    A bit of luck on 2 counts this weekend - firstly I was given tickets to both the qualifiers on Saturday and the race itself on Sunday. Secondly an ex classmate dropped me a line to let me know that he works for the Red Bull racing team as Strategy Manager (or something) and would I like to watch the Qualifiers from the pit lane. I don't really have much interest in F1 but decided to drag myself along to see what its all about.
    Didnt really get much chance to take pics (not allowed when in the glass viewing booth next to the team's garagey thing during the race unfortunately).

    So anyway here are some of the pics that I took from the paddock/pit lane before and after Saturday nights Qualifying. I suppose they might be of interest to someone here.

    And now after the Qualifiers in the pit lane

    Surprised they let this fat bastard near their computers and that.





























    Forgot to mention there was loads of beer consumed on the night too. Then I staggered off to find a taxi home.

    amazing that the wheels seem connected to the body of the car by a few flimsy looking rods...
    the race was good though...but not for red Bull...
    thanks for posting the pics SBF...

    I assume there must have been some sexy girls on display, but I must have been unlucky. Maybe they just turned up on the race day itself. Anyway the bad news is that I dont have any pics of girls. But hey, there are girls everywhere. Look out your frickin window Terrence!

    All looks a lot more upmarket than Silverstone. I got into the pit lane and press box during the race there one year.
    The noise is absolutely incredible. Gives a nice warm feeling behind the zip, all that automotive grunting.
    Some good pics there SBF, many thanks.

    Very nice... Pit access for a F1 race is a must and doesn't come cheap... I'm jealous myself...

    amazing that the wheels seem connected to the body of the car by a few flimsy looking rods...
    What you see that looks like wheels are actually duct work around the carbon fiber disc brake system... The flimsy looking rods are carbon fiber control arms used to locate the spindles through suspension travel... They are light and flimsy, but very strong as long as they are stressed in the designed direction... If not, they shatter like dropping a block of ice...
    Give a man a match, and he'll be warm for a minute, but set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Good pics! Wish I had been there. As it was, driving along in Jomtien, I saw an otherwise deserted restaurant with a big-screen tv going. We stopped, had dinner and watched the race.

    I was in Singapore last weekend...and amazed at the amount of work that went into this. The race was on streets that they closed off for the event. The infrastructure that they built for the race was incredible, including the viewing stands, pits, lights over the track, etc....

    I think you would prefer CWDs to SPGs Butterfly!

    What was enormously satisfying is that big shots from my company who enjoyed the race from a corporate box are jealous as hell that I managed to get into the pit lane.

    'Yeah so fuck you and your expat packages'- I would have said if I didn't give a damn about my career.
