Default Photologue - Indian Grand Prix 2013

I have been following Formula 1 actively and passionately for a very long time. In the past one year, lack of time during weekends has resulted in reading more about F1 than watching it.

I belong to the school of thought that prefers watching an event/sport on TV over watching it live. Thus, I have never been too keen on watching a Formula 1 race live (apart from night race at SG). Earlier in the year, I participated in an open track day at BIC and that made me wonder about the experience of watching a race from the grand stand. How the music of F1 cars would resonate in the grand stand area.

Checked the price of tickets and then made a list of all the things I could do with that 10-12K. Imagined how wonderful Crusoe (my car) would look, if I add 3-4 K to the 10-12K and purchase that wonderful dual-action polisher.

Discussed it with my fiancee and she suggested that I spend the 3-4 K on Picnic stand and use the 10-12 K in the way I want. To make a stronger case, she forwarded an Youtube link of the view from picnic stand. It did make a lot of sense. Like in every corporate warrior's life, I had to plan time for some unforeseen and unplanned meetings. Thus, I decided I would watch the race on TV.

On Friday evening, a friend called and asked if I am in Delhi. I said "Yes". His next question was "Till when?". I said "at least till Diwali".

Next statement - "Dude, I have a pass for the grand stand, would you be interested?". Now, we all criticize the Delhiites for their connections and "Tu jaanta hain mera baap kaun hain?". Here my friend's connections (most probably the ones he made because of his dad) helped me get a pass at Grand Stand, so why should I complain? I said "Oh hell yeah!".

On Sunday, I along with 3 friends headed towards BIC in Crusoe. We parked Crusoe at E2 parking slot and then took the shuttle to the grand stand entrance. Let me not bore you all with more words and let the pics do all the talking from here on.
