Hey hatari, acutally the cockpit was so small that i could barely fit in...! But as u know..u cant get in the formula 1 car..without removing the steering wheel..! So i was on my haunches initially..... then i was trying to remove the steering wheel.... so that i could sit properly and press the brakes & throttle...! But hell...i forgot how to remove the steering wheel... tried all the possible buttons & levers on the steering wheel... but couldnt remove it..! So i thought might as well sit on the haunches and enjoy myself! WISH I HAD PAID MORE ATTENTION TO THE RACEDAY SHOW ON TV WHEREIN THEY HAD ONCE SHOWN HOW THE STEERING WHEEL IS REMOVED!!

Hey Jigar, you sure got lucky meeting those drivers man, but don't you wish you had a better camera at the time! its pretty obvious these are not PS jobs! The pic quality is too crappy for that!! lol

And, that F1 car was a display car only. No engine or anything like that. In all probability, the steering was permanently fixed on to prevent people from robbing it!

Wohh, one lucky dude. I've touched an F1 car but never got to sit in it. Anyway, when is your next trip? Make sure you get a digi-cam by then. Do you have more pics that you haven't posted? if, yes then what are you waiting for?

Schumi went to the hotel in a self driven Volvo?? I am sure he could've found a Ferrari in Malaysia...lol. DC himself claims that he never drives off track.
