Default My pics with F1 drivers & Mclaren F1 !!

These pics were taken from my cell phone last year when i had gone for the malaysian Gp..!! I was waiting for almost 2 hours after the race got over on the track and then once everyone left...i climbed over fences & reached the start finish straight.... from there i jumped into the pit lane..... and through the paddock... i reached the drivers parking lot...! thats where all these pics are clicked..! After meeting all the F1 drivers taking autographs etc..etc.. i was going back to my hotel... and thats when i saw this beautiful Mclaren F1 on display with only one security gaurd.. standing there.! i requested him if i could sit in the car & luckily he allowed me to...! It was a heavenly feeling..! Sitting in Kimis Mclaren... turing the steering wheel....ahhh!! (The images are not very clear since they are taken from my cell phone)


This is rubens in the parking lot


This is me & Button


This is me & Nick heildfeld



This is the mclaren steering wheel



Thats me in the mclaren F1



Thats another one of me in the mclaren

Dude, seriously no offence but the pictures of you in the car seem like a Pshop job to me.

Good job with meeting up with the drivers etc. Indian ingenuity always works.

NO U DONT GET THAT CLOSE TO A F1 DRIVER!!!

Dont know abt you but been to 12 races and I never did have a chance to look at them properly with the costliest ticket on the track.

Even If you pay for a package!!

Well if you did it is a nice photoshop.

If you still did it then you can rob a bank easily.........

Well yes some one jumped over the fence and went on to the track when I was in sepang circuit , but thats it nothin more than that.

K stand is the one at the end of the start finish straight at turn one if I'm not mistaken. My C stand ticket gave me a view of the entire back part of the circuit inclusing the awesome back straight
