I just finished watching the practice & the race seems promising. But somehow with all that lighting it doesn't seem as exciting as the expectations were! Anyhow, as Tony Glock demonstrated towards the end of the session, there is really no room for mistakes, one small mistake & he lost the front wing. So even any small mistakes in qualifying tomorrow or the race on Sunday could prove to be disastrous!

Saw the practice this evening. The atmosphere seemed electric. I also noticed the sounds of the engines echoed more loudly during the night. They sounded just awesome. But as Ishan said, there is no room for mistakes. One goof up and you are a gonner. Good work by the organisers too . Cant wait for Sunday now.

Many moons ago, I used to work in one of the buildings close by. I bet lots of people stay back late at office to catch some of the action

I relocated to Singapore a month back but unfortunately missed on getting my hold on the tickets. Never the less, I still managed to get the glimpse of the cars from City Hall. I must say earplugs were'nt needed till the time the first car raced into the track, and voila cars roaringly followed one another into the circuit and thats what is called 'music'. Awesome stuff. I must say, McLaren, Renault and Ferrari were impressive. McLaren clearly looked faster in the 1st Practice session, unforturnately I wasnt there to see the 2nd practice session. I plan to visit again today and hopefully will get tickets for the last day, one of my friend is travelling out of Singapore and he happens to have 2 tickets . More first hand experience to be penned. Images to follow.

Heh, I even saw a few people climb up onto a nearby bridge to catch the action.

The atmosphere here at the circuit is great! The sheer noise of the F1 cars is awesome. Since there is a lot of concrete close around the track the sound gets amplified via echoes.

I was right near where Weber crashed, couldnt get pics of it though since the battery in my cam died

The circuit itself looks superb with no room for errors. The race (on track) organisation seems good, but the organisers just cannot seem to handle big crowds, with people crushing near the Bay grandstand and blocking of access to the food courts. So instead of going to the food courts a few hundred spectators (including me) ended up outside the circuit itself. Hopefully today will be better.

i took loads of pics last night, some of them are decent. I will try to upload some pics tonight. By the time we reach our hotel back, its midnight and by then we are dead tired, so finding it difficult to post.

Tifoso, buddy . It is Tifoso, unless you are royal blood or something, to use plural Tifosi.
