This is going to be one heck of an experience for you, Farhan! Make the most of it and have an absolute blast. Congrats again.

P.S. : In true BHPian spirit, don't wear 'em earplugs. Let the screaming engines at 18,000 rpms blow your ears apart

Brilliant. We need people into management as well to understand the currents and undercurrents.

Dear All,

Thank you very much for your kind wishes.

I would like to thank Mr. Vicky Chandok - Vice President of the FMSCI and Chairman of the Karting comission, who has been instrumental in my representing the country as an observer steward for the FIA Singapore F1 Grandprix. My sincere gratitude to the Federation of Motor Sports Cubs of India and Madras Motor Sports club, who have encouraged the younger generation, and guided us forward.

As an Observer Steward, I will be in Race control along with the other Stewards of the race. I will be a trainee or an apprentice and will have to first learn the ropes before I can qualify to be a full Steward. I will not have any voting rights either. It's going to be a great learning experience and exposure and I hope to make the best of it.

Thank you all and I will update as regularly as I can.
