Watched the race live at the track! Overall it was a great experience, would definitely recommend it. Bumped into Jackie Stewart when he was on his way back from paddock. Also saw Damon Hill and other two presenters of Sky commentary team, who were staying at the hotel just outside gate 2. Finally the surprise encounter was with our good old Steve Slater who was boarding the metro at the same station along with us after the race!

About the race, the way Vettel increased his lead lap by lap was incredible. Watching the race at track gives a different perspective as you can literally see the gap increasing each lap at a particular corner. Also great result from Kimi, who was right on Button's gearbox towards the end, and it was rewarding to see him on the podium.

Alonso lift earns Webber Korea grid penalty

http://www.formula1.com/news/headlin...3/9/15012.html

One of the most fun parts of the GP was seeing Alonso give Webber a lift back to the pits (Cue Mansell-Senna from 1992). Yet Webber gets a ten-place grid penalty for Korea?

That's why I cannot stand this over-protective, over-corporatised Formula 1 these days (esp. after just seeing RUSH). You could see Webber waving and all the fans 'having fun taking pictures of the Ferrari 'Taxi'. It was a nice moment and now ruined thanks to the idiotic rules.

But I guess Webber doesnt mind.

Just watched the clip, must say it was quite dangerous. Alonso should have pulled over to the left. He stopped just after a blind corner.

They did not show this on the TV Broadcast, they only showed him AFTER getting the lift.

In this case, I agree, it was a stupid and dangerous move by both Alonso and Webber. It can be seen that two cars narrowly avoided hitting both of them. Alonso could have parked in the run-off area instead while picking up Webber.

Few pics from my side of Singapore GP at turn 7 Padang grandstand. Please forgive for the quality because of the grill in between. Had awesome fun and met some crazy fans. Rihanna concert was also good, better-half enjoyed.

As others have mentioned, it was not the action in and of itself which garnered the penalty, but the fact that it was the third time this season he had been given a reprimand. It may have made for "good TV", but the fact remains that he disobeyed the written sporting regulations. Was a 10-spot penalty a bit harsh? Possibly, and one would think that a driver who's been around as long as Webber would know better, but I think at this point in his career, he just doesn't give a damn.

I dont think he was penalised for hitching a ride, it was the way he and alonso did it, endangering 2 other drivers and himself while walking upto and getting on the Ferrari at the exit of a blind corner.

Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso donít think much of their Singapore Grand Prix reprimands and have said (mocked) as much on Twitter

They are among the most if not the most hard working team & driver pairing on the grind. No one in their right mind will take away from them nor boo for the same.
Arun, Different people have different reasons for booing vettel. I shall highlight what I feel is the general consensus:


-Vettel has shown he is a very Sore loser when things don't go his way, Various team radio outbursts will attest to this not to mention his interviews after a Qualy or Race hasn't gone his way. No one likes a bad sportsman.

-Vettel has displayed emotions of Entitlement, again from the 'Get him out of the way' team radio.

-Vettel with the Malaysian incident, although he did not cheat I would like to think that is the mass opinion of him.

-Vettel keeps on winning and this makes the sport boring & effects peoples already negative sentiments against him.


People boo him, In my opinion, for some of the above or all of the above reasons.
I do not think personally he is a bad guy but I sure am sick and tired of him winning, which is my reason, hence I flip him off whenever his finger comes up on the screen : )
