Experiencing F1 Racing Singapore

At the last minute, I was given a Stamford Stand ticket by a friend to attend the actual day of F1 Racing on 20th Sept 2015. This is the first time I attended the event since its inception in 2008.

When the race started at 2000 hours, the spectators were all geared up for action especially when the cars raced past the Stand (where Turn 7 & 8 were) for the first time. Subsequently, the scene of cars roaring past laps after laps became a bore. The only time the spectators at our Stand got excited were when there was an overtaking or when Hamilton got passed or when the last lap was announced.

The most intriguing moment was when the announcer mentioned that there was an intruder on the road circuit during the race!!!
