I was in the block bang opposite to the podium. I think that is penthouse A. So we were in the same block if I am not mistaken...

Why did you book the Pontiac G6? It is a lousy car, IMO. You get a feeling that the steering and the wheels are not connected at all. The seats weren't comfortable, handling was so-so. The only thing I liked about the car was the looks and it's remote start feature.

I could only take the pics when they were coming to the pits. Its impossible for me to click them at 280-300 kmph

Is the car so bad !! I had no idea at all.. I had booked it because one of my colleagues had told me that it is fabulous car. But it seems that I got lucky that it was not available.

now dont tell me that all the pics you have taken in the pits are of Rossi!!!

BTW, there should be good looking chicks in the pits along with bikes before the starting line.

do you have a DSLR??, if not buy/borrow atleast a cannon A610(or cameras with manual shutter speed) for the next time, if such feature is not present in your existing camera.

forget cheliya cheliya, try hip hop, alternate rock(i guess you have good bass in your ICE). Talk to btirtankar regarding the music(he has good music which will keep you wake even in the middle of the night on a long journey without any traffic, butter smooth roads and above all even if the car has auto tranny)

Had I not known better, I had the opportunity of believing after being told by a colleague of yours (hence also mine!) that Chevrolet Malibu was better than a Dodge Charger (he actually returned the Charger to rent the Malibu on grounds of Fuel consumption and heavy steering). Needless to say the kind of response he got from me!

So don't get told.

I totally agree with Kuttapan (Sid).
