The practice starts from today, hopefully on the way back home, I should see some real action
Send us some pictures of the track & action from your office. Can u see the pit garages or at least the pit building from your office? But I dout if you can take pictures in the night when all the action is bound to happen. I suppose, there might not be much action during the day, except in the pit building.

Suman, I am already here in Singapore and ambled around half of the circuit on Tuesday. With the walkabout tickets and possibility of rain, i am very doubtful about getting some good pictures. I will try my best.

Well, I survived the big boys at Sepang last year in the F Platinum so I think I'll live through another year. Those ear splitting screams & the reverberations in your body as they flash by - what better way to live or die!

It really feels very sad when one misses such event. The sadness actually converts in frustration when one leaves the venue city just because of official commitments.


Yes it's me.... landed back from Korea-Singapore trip yesterday only, had to come along with some company delegations

Wonderful Krishna.
Is it the pit garage in the second pic!?
what are those concrete surfaces with flower pots still doing there?!

Anyone else noticed how distracting the lights are in the last pic!
Am sure its not just the camera eye that notices it.

That's strange! Qualifying is at 7.30 pm IST (10 pm Singapore/HK time) - what time are Star Sports telecasting it?

Hmmm, its the qualifying timing at the Singapore GP that's caused this - normally, the Qualifying would be at the same time as the Race the next day, which would have been 5.30 pm. Star Sports would have this slot free whereas at 7.30 pm on a Saturday, they almost invariably have a EPL match live telecast going on!

Suman,

Does it mean that there will be no LIVE telecast of the Singapore Qualifying?

Looks like, if their website listings are correct! I'll check out what's showing on my Digital cable program tonight & confirm if I see anything different
