2013 Delhi F1 photo essay - The Fat Cat and Junior go to "The Races"
The Fat Cat and Junior were going to the races!!
This would be my son's second F1 but he does not remember the first - Bahrain 2007. He was 5, and Kimi and Massa were driving for Ferrari.
This one he would remember for the rest of his life. As say every picture tells a story so let me tell this story in pictures.
As preparation my son downloaded a 2013 F1 driver's spotter guide from here
The Fat Cat and son at Buddh. Pic taken by a friend we made at the track, thanks Aashish Kulkarni!
This sweet 26 year old assisted us in getting seats at the Buddh. Thank you Reuben George, Mercedes.
..and some of his colleagues & other auto journalists
"When I grow up I want to be an F1 car"
Three Musketeers? Three Blind Mice? No! Three men at Buddh!
How I wish I had the view these guys were having
It was just not his weekend, and driving into Webber's rear end put an end to the rest of it.
Look Ma, no Massa
The one guy you do NOT want to give racing advice to
Formula 1 still needs more fans in India - this was the crowd for the Q2 and Q3 sessions.
You don't know it, Nico, but you are going to come second tomorrow as well (end of Q3, Nico finishes 2nd)
Go Nico Go
Hamilton after Q3: "I am done with fooling around, we all know Vettel's gonna win anyway"
Mercedes finishes Q3 with positions 2 and 3!
...and Webber strategizes
The King of good times!
Suddenly Alonso went missing...wonder what went through the minds of these guys?
I ain't joking, all the drivers were in their cars with umbrellas protecting them and Fernando just ups and goes.
A legend is interviewed
Niki Lauda again
and yet again
The only person who could have upstaged Niki, if he was alive, would have been "El Maestro" himself.
I bet he must be thinking "I wish they'd let me drive"
"maybe if I ask Stefano nicely"
"oh well, maybe I should ask Mclaren"
I swear, I could see a tear in ol' Niki's eyes as he walked past the waiting Ferrari - waiting for Alonso
Hey look!!! no Red Lights!!!
Try doing this at 300 kmph!
40 laps before the gear box failed, Vettel was lucky not to suffer from Webber's gremlins
Qué pasa Señor Massa? Will you please let "The Ham" pass?
From the pits to the Podium, congratulations Romain!
Nico saving Mercedes the blushes
Force India's Paul Di Resta just was not able to keep the pace
and with 3 laps left to go...
...Kimi is still intent on blazing the track
but it was too little too late. The result was a foregone conclusion. Poor Fernando I thought as streams of ABBA went through my head.
"Though we never thought that we could lose, There's no regret, If I had to do the same again I would, my friend, Fernando"
Better luck next year, Ferrari.
and Vettel jumped through the railings
and Hungry Heidi - minus some rubber - was rolled away
Vettel, Nico and Romain celebrate
Vettel lets Romain bathe him in bubbly - after being not allowed to drink water for 20 laps that must have felt good.
In a show of sportsmanship Nico and Romain lift Vettel on their shoulders
David Coulthard interviews Vettel
