Ct offered me tickets to F1 – yeah grandstand baby! Who could say no?
I’ve seen the F1 once, but that one only hillstand tickets, nak tengok kereta lalu pun sekali sekala – dahla berpanas. But this time, we had the best seats = RM1k seats, facing the pitstops. We were mere 5 metres away from the track! I had to insert tissue into my ears as substitutes to the earplug (hehe malas nak beli). Adrenaline totally rushed into our heads when the F1 cars goes in front of us. Telinga pun memang berdengung even dh ade earplug. Yang paling best duduk depan pitstop psl dpt tgk the whole activity happened. Orang yang jaga signboard tu akan inform the racer bila nak masuk pit, a lap before that. Bila kereta masuk je dlm pitstop, semua orang dh ready dengan gear dan task masing2, and everybody knows what to do already. Less than 10 seconds, the car is all geared up and ready for the next lap. A sight I will never forget in my entire life.
Yang paling susah when we want to snap picture when the car goes by. Dalam 10 tryout, sekali je kitorang dapat snap – sebab laju sangat! Lama2 me and Ct dah tau dah cmne nak target to snap the pic. When die jauh lagi, dh tekan the camera and if nasib baik dapatla tangkap gmbr kereta tu.
My favvy racer of course si Kimi Raikkonen tu kan (Go Ferrari!). First skali he and Felipe Massa memang race sebelah2 sebab petak pertama and kedua. Then ada satu kereta Toyota ni pulak terbabas masa awal2 lap and die dah kene tinggal satu round ngn semua orang. Kesian die. Tup2 si Massa ni plak terbabas time lap 31, tapi Kimi maintain depan skali. 55 laps altogether, when Kimi touched je the finishing line, terus angkat tangan and wave to us. Best gile! Met Rina (totally dressed like a pit girl) and boyfriend Mora after the race – too bad they were Sauber fans! Tak geng la! 🙂 Btw, pictures tk upload lagi sebab camera ada kat Shahnaz. Later ah.
Ps: Owh have I told you that I’m so bengang with Amat Z coz he told me he got 5 free tix for Sunburst only a day after it ends! Frust. Some things are worth not knowing kan?
