I was browsing through my pictures and I realized that I have not uploaded all of the pictures from the 2009 Singapore Formula 1 night race. Last year, I still had a day job and I was too busy to upload the pictures and blog. When I was in Singapore, I did not have the liberty to touch my computer and update my blog all the time which is sad but you know why…
Anyway, to those who are going to this year’s Singapore Formula 1 then good luck guys and I envy you… Michael Schumacher will be there!!! Oh, I love F1… I’m still working my way to be the first female driver in the Formula 1… time will come lol 😀
This is Lewis Hamilton walking around the Singapore F1 Track. In this picture, you can only see a part of his leg and arm… I wasn’t able to get a good picture that was because I was so STARSTRUCK like I just **froze** there for like 5 seconds **faints**
I also saw Jensen Button cycling around the track but he was cycling to fast I wasn’t able to take pictures 😀
Day 1 – Singapore F1 Practice
September 25, 2009
I was seated at the Bay Grandstand yellow seats Row 6 Seat 26. I took advantage of the special password given to me for booking. It was too damn hot… This picture was taken at around 3pm and there were not much people but the sun is still hot!!! Make sure to apply sun block! I swear, I would have wanted to walk around the track on a bikini – that’s how hot it is!
I tried to stroll around the Bay Grandstand area to look and search around for the best seats in the Bay Grandstand area. This picture was taken at the super top seats in the Bay Grandstand Area. After checking the entire place, I would say that the best seats would have to be in the left most part (facing the track) on the Dark Green seats of the Bay Grandstand area. I will blog about where to position yourselves nicely and what best ticket seats to buy for the Bay Grandstand area so please visit my blog often to get updated.
This is practice Friday and you can see Giancarlo Fisichella driving the Ferrari F1 car. You can distinguish between Fisichella and Kimi Raikkonen based on the stickers behind their helmets. The orange sticker is Fisichella, the yellow is Kimi.
We had a nice view of the Singapore Flyer by our side while the race is going.
This is the view from the top-left most part of the Bay Grandstand Area. You will see a nice view of Singapore river and the skyscrapers

Day 3 – Singapore F1 Race Day

I need to put these pictures on Thumbnail because there’s too many. If you want to see a larger version, kindly click on the picture
The album includes:
- An almost close-up picture of the F1 Drivers (all of them)
- Portrait shots of spectators using my 70-300mm lens
- Aston Martin Cup cars
I did not take any more pictures of the F1 cars as I was concentrating on the race itself as well I was just on guard if ever there will be a crash in front of us or whatever but good news, no major accident… so there you go…

Please also check out the Singapore F1 pitstop pictures I took and the pictures of spectators. I really enjoyed taking these photos using my Nikon D40 kit and 70-300mm nikkor lens
