    Singapore Grand Prix

    Finally, after more a year long wait, the Singapore GP has kickstarted. I couldn't believe I was actually watching F1 cars on Singapore roads on my TV. I see the bus lane, the yellow box but I didn't see any ERP gantry. It's kinda unreal but it really is Singapore. Eventhough it's a night race, I don't see it affecting the drivers significantly. However, what was promised beforehand didn't happen-showing Singapore's landmark to the world. C'mon, other than the track, I could see no other shit dat's beside the track. All I saw were the underside of the Benjamin Sheares' Bridge, the Singapore Flyer and some black water(Marina Bay Reservoir). I bet the view would have been better had it been in the day, juz like Monaco where I can see bikini clad girls sun tanning on the roof of apartments alongside the track as well as on the deck of luxurious yachts docked on the waters beside the track. Singapore GP, I see juz the track lined up by fences n 1600 high lux lamps.

    By the looks for the 1hr practise, the track can be quite tricky at some corners. Of cos, being a street circuit, the track is definitely narrower, with the drivers juz inches away from the concrete wall at some part of the race. There's no room for mistakes, no room for 2nd chance. Once u scrap or hit the wall, u're as good as out of the race. Therefore, it demands maximum concentration, made even more crucial with the number of turns being the highest of all tracks, 23 of them. here in Singapore GP. I saw some mistakes n some minor mishaps in the practise session, but I say it's better to make the mistakes now than to make it during the race.

    Lewis Hamilton set the pace early in the session, but Felipe Massa broke his timing with 3/4 of the session gone. Lewis wasn't happy with dat n came out of the pits n try to set another fastest lap timing. He succeeded n everyone thought dat is it. To my astonishment, Fernando Alonso in the Renault broke Lewis' timing n set the fastest lap timing of the night with less than a minute left. Simply amazing performance from the former 2 time world champion. Welcome to Singapore Fernando Alonso.

    Here's a computer simulation of the track featuring Mark Webber of the Red Bull team
