Grand Prix

Well it's been a while since I wrote, I've been super busy for the past week as I had a friend visiting from the UK which was lovely.  She came just in time for the Grand Prix (which her, me and my fiance all had tickets for) and stayed for a week so I have been busy doing all the touristy bits with her.

The Grand Prix was amazing!!  I have to be honest I have never got Formula 1 and it has never really interested me as a consequence but being here with it on it seemed wrong not to take the chance to go and see it.  I can't pretend I really get it much more now but I do know that I thoroughly enjoy it and maybe I'll even take a bit more interest in the final few races of the season.




The two main things I have to confess to not realising previously was firstly that they practice ahead of the qualifying and the race so we got three nights of entertainment and secondly I can't get over how loud the cars are.  Yes I know you hear them on TV when you are watching it but I guess I've never given any thought to how loud they may be in reality, I definitely know now!  They sell ear plugs and ponchos and I was so grateful for the ear plugs.  The ponchos are also a good idea in Singapore but fortunately although it rained during the day there was no rain for the practices, qualifying or the actual race.

Singapore has the most fabulous skyline for a night race and seeing the coverage on the big screens I really felt proud to have the opportunity to be there.  It is definitely an experience I won't forget in a hurry.  The icing on the cake would have been a British win but you can't have everything and that wasn't to be sadly.

  1. I think you need to get into the Grand Prix business a little more. there are still a few more races until the end of the season.
