F1 Grand Prix - Ferrari Disaster
Monday, September 29, 2008

It was a great F1 night. Indeed an historical moment for Singapore and I’m so proud to be part of this remarkable event!!

I arrived at 5pm & the crowd was slowly pouring in.

Had a couple of beers and bumped into old friends!

The race starts off with all the drivers doing a parade in vintage cars, waving to the crowd. We got to our seats at the Padang grandstand, standby with our ear plugs and waited. It was packed with fans and supporters from all over the world, with their countries’ flag flying high. Click to watch the video of the 1st lap of the F1 race! It is insanely loud!! And fast!!

Can you imagine how hard it was to get a picture of these mean machines speeding at 285km/hr? This was the best I captured!! Digital Cameras are ridiculous!

There were a couple of dramas and crashes in the course of the laps. The major Ferrari Disaster is the most talked about one… I have captured video footage of the disaster for Ferrari, via the big screen display infront of us. In case you missed the drama last night, watch this!!

Massa was in the pitstop. Given the green light, he drove off with the fuel hose still attached to his car.

Massa stopped and waited for assistance. His crew ran after him and struggled to remove the hose. Massa ended up sitting in his Ferrari and rejoined the race at the back of the field.

Replay of Ferrari drama. Watch out at 00:12 sec of the video when Massa was given the Green Light to GO. Watch the fuel hose get ripped out, with fuel spilling all over and the poor crew who almost got ramped over! Raikkonen was right behind Massa, waiting in the pitstop.

Kimi Raikkonen ramming his car into the barriers with just four laps to go till the end of this race. I was devastated!!

These pictures are not enough to justify how exciting the race was. Enjoy the videos if you missed the race last night. Watch it again, because this F1 Grand Prix 1st Night Race EVER in Singapore is gonna go down in history! (or rather the Ferrari Disaster...)

you'll know it's
all because of you
we can do
whatever we want to
