    This year will be my first time at the Singapore GP and I can’t wait. I’ve booked hotel and flights but haven’t booked F1 tickets yet as I’m not sure where to sit. I’ve been looking at turn 2 Block A2 or A3, after reading numerous reviews online, however only lower rows are avaliable on the SingaporeGP website (row 3 or 4), do you still get a good view of the pit straight and turns 1 and 2 from that low down? Or should I look at tickets elsewhere? Ideally want to be sitting in Zone 1.

    Thanks!

    Red Bull have just released their app on android, it links with the red bull spy they use on Twitter and has general F1/Red Bull news too. And it’s free!

    I’ve read Gerald Donaldson’s biography of James Hunt too, and I definitely agree – it’s a book that’s worth a read. It certainly opened my eyes to the James Hunt beyond the playboy image.

    MotoGP – Rossi, Stoner, Pedrosa. I’m not as addicted to it as I am to F1 yet, but I am starting to love it. Definitely want to go to a MotoGP race before Rossi retires.

    GP2 – No real favourites, but I do like Bianchi.

    WRC – Loeb. Only watch it occasionally.

    One motorsport I’ve never been able to get into though is NASCAR.. it doesn’t do anything for me.

    That is a lot of races! As much as I love F1 and want to see as many races as possible, I personally feel that 24 is too many.

    Just reserved my unit for Silverstone :) I’m having it delivered to my house before as well, and it’s costing 48.48 (the odd price due to exchange rate between Euros and GBP) Think the 50 euro price ends on Friday, so if you are thinking of getting one then get it before then.

    There’s some great quotes on here :)

    Kimi used to come out with some classic quotes too:

    Reporter: Kimi, whats the 5th grid place like?

    Kimi: Its the 5th grid place.

    After Monza 2008, when Kimi didn’t score.

    Reporter: Are you satisfied with the result?

    Kimi: Do you think I am?

    I’m pretty sure that after the pitlane time (when they leave the pitlane) it comes up with the time for the actual pitstop too.. or maybe I’m just imagining things?

    I’ve been looking into this too for Silverstone. It’s 50 euros for the weekend, but extra charges occur if the unit is lost, or returned late etc, so provided it is looked after then its just 50 euros.

    Everyone I have spoke to who has been to a GP has said it was invaluable, and makes following the race 100 times easier. According to the website for 2010 you will be able to follow 4 onboard cameras at once, see lap comparisons, live timing, team radio, and of course follow the race as if you were watching on TV.

    The only thing I’m slighlty worried about is that I will end up watching the Kangaroo TV more than I actually watch the cars, but I’m sure I can tear myself away from it :P

    I was a bit disappointed by Vettel’s helmet design this year, I like it, I just don’t like it as much as I did with some of his ’09 ones. Alguersuari’s is nice though, and I like the slickness of Jenson’s. And I love Vettel’s Monaco one that Steph posted earlier :)

    I’m a huge Vettel fan, as some of you may know. But I also support Hamilton too, and Alguersuari. There isn’t any driver on the grid that I hate though, I’m not a huge fan of Button, Trulli or Alonso. However, like Katy I think Alonso is one of the best drivers on the grid and he is starting to grow on me now he’s at Ferrari.

    Favourite team would be Red Bull or McLaren. I’m a fan of both of them, so it’s hard for me to pick just one (may seem odd when they are both close competitors, but that’s just me I suppose, lol)

    Hello again everyone :)

    I’m Rachel (also known as ‘vettelfan’ on here) Only 18 and still relatively new to F1. Started watching in late ’06, but didn’t become obsessive about it until mid-way through 2007. I’ll be attending my first GP this year, at Silverstone, and I actually can’t wait for it :D
