it’s time of the year again! last year i missed it because i was humongously pregnant..hehe..this year was my comeback and there were some great moments and some not so great ones…(that’s just life..*sigh*)
Fakta(did u know?)
after just one season of F1 in sepang, malaysia got back not just the cost of building sepang, but still profit from it! (patutla jiran kite tu pun beriya nak buat F1 kat tempat dia, jeles la tu..hehe)
this year i got tickets from LG’s contest, they gave us two tickets, two parking tickets, two meal vouchars, and a goodie bag…i was happy to get the free tickets but a bit dissapointed because it was just hillstand tickets (i honestly thought we’re gonna win grandstand tickets, it never occurred to me we’re gonna get hillstand tickets, tapi bersyukur aje la..hehe)..and because of that (hillstand tickets), we decided not to go for the qualifying session and just spent the day at PD..
on the race day itself, we went to the mall area to pick up our goodie bag, we got an umbrella, a cap, a bag and a bottle of drinking water..not too shabby!
the race begins with the GP2 race, and i was psyched! the sound of them engines..sukenye!! but later it started to rain, and the tragedy came…spectators were attacked by caterpillars! after the rain many of us went to the medical post to get medical attention for our itchy situation…thank goodness we didn’t bring muhammad along..kesian dia kalau kena ulat bulu..isk…
otakku fikir bukan2:
what if during the thunderstorm, with the strong winds and all, an umbrella got blown away into the track where cars were racing and caused a massive accident – could it be they would BAN UMBRELLAS in sepang??!!! huhu
after the rain the sun was out again, and the F1 GP started at 5pm (gila tak, lambat tuu…sungguh x faham kenapa..rupenye sebab nak dapatkan live telecast 9am kot kat area europe…tapi sangatlah tak sesuai dengan timing kita…hehe), and as forecasted, the weather turned bad and the race was suspended at lap 31 and later stopped..spectators started doing all crazy stunts to amuse themselves…all the drivers only got half points, and we went home with disappointment..one word – hampa!
balik pulak stress ngan polis yang ‘menjaga’ trafik dengan teramat ‘cemerlang’..tapi same thing every year, no improvements in term of the after-race traffic.
but this year’s race was great, even with only 31 laps and the race got suspended, we got to see how Glock become a ‘trend-setter’ with the tyres (just humourous), heidfeld was persistent on the wet tyres and not going with the flow, thanks to his ‘local’ engineers (lucky him!), and the drivers skidded and turned on the wet track, it must’ve been very challenging for the teams..and this year was such a different experience for me..and as usual..next year I’ll be back for more!!
