Default F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2009 - Pics on Pg 4

We are just few days away from the most awaited night race

Singtel Singapore Grand Prix 2009.

Things have suddenly started to hot up in the recent races.

And last 2 races being a major circus with downforce, Singapore race is lot more different than the latter.

Last year 2008 results were a bit mixed up:
1) Fernando Alonso = Renault
2) Nico Roseberg = Williams Toyota
3) Lewis Hamilton - Mclaren Mercedes

What does everyone predict the outcome.

1) Qualifying
2) Race Day

And most importantly, Our very own Force India. How good will they be on a different kind of turf?

Can't wait for this one. Hopefully, they've installed a crane at turn 17 this year.

It is a suspended ban - i.e. if they behave during the period they suffer no penalty!

Guys, use hostream.net

I always watch there and the feed is fantastic as long as you put up with American commentary (who are actually a lot more knowledgeable than Slater, but that's not saying much is it?).

Very difficult to call Pavan ! This year, we have had six different race winners in the 13 run so far and that too after Jenson ran away with six wins in the first seven ! Hope Force India can get on to the podium again, also feel that the Brawn cars will do well here !

yay!! F1 again and I love the Scuderia under the lights.

My Prediction, McLaren will be favourites here with Lewis. They have just got a new update again. Brawn do have tyre issues and with cooler temperatures at night, its going to be interesting how they perform. Kimi for another podium.

And all crashes are going to be closely watched

Yes sir, rightly said. But still a shame to drive for such a team, how they get over this period will be worth watching.

Presently problem seems to have sorted out, but this guy is playing hide n seek couple of days. Hope he does not block the telecast this weekend.

I am presently not worried about any other team other than our very own FORCE INDIA.

Indiaaaaaa.... Indiaaaaaaaa...

When does the race start on Sunday - IST?

I missed last years telecast of the race too. I was there, live and it was awesome!
It'll be interesting to watch it on TV this year.

My prediction:
Ferrari on podium again and definitely atleast one of the Brawn's. Although I hope Force India do well, I have my doubts. Let's see how it goes.
