Monza, home of the tifosi and Ferrari. Qualifying was definitely interesting when I saw Sebastian Vettel on Pole and the top 3 drivers Kimi, Massa and Hamilton below the 1st and 2nd row! Everyone was suddenly rooting for Vettel to win! someone other than the usual Ferrari and Mclaren camp was leading the race from the start and finished to make history. Toro Rosso once used to be called Minardi where our very own Alex Yoong was racing whom have never finished on the podium before now actually won a race last weekend.
Sebastian Vettel is now the youngest driver to be on Pole position and win a Gran Prix at the age of 21. He'd be one driver to lookout for in the near future. His driving was superb and was outpacing 2nd place Heikki Kovalainen in a Mclaren. When Vettel was on the podium, the German and Italian anthem was played and that is something that I haven't heard since Schumacher retired. Vettel will be moving to Red Bull next season and I hope to see this young german make it up the ranks.
The venue Sepang F1 Circuit......car park. hahaha. Words that were spoken by Ian Khong founder of Grass Racing Autosports.
I've got to say this is the fastest ever GRA round ever organized. Thanks to the organizers for making this possible. Although it was a really HOT day in Sepang everyone was pumped up for this speed course, some of the competitors were seen riding bicycles in the 1.6km layout, including myself and sweetie. haha.
Sweetie was all out in Class A and finished 3rd in her Auto Kelisa and I finished 1st in class and overall with the absence of Sifu Ivan this time around.
Here's a report by rally legend YSKhong in Autoworld
I'll post photos when I collect them over the next week.
Oh my, this is way overdue, but I'll just blog away. 2 weekends in a row Sweetie, Zoey and myself made a trip up north to Alor Star and Penang, mainly because Sweetie's Lil' Sister was about to give birth to a baby girl. Her name Andrea, she's so tiny and oh so cute, Sweetie couldn't keep her eyes off her and spent alot of time trying to play with the little angel.
Baby Andrea smiling, isn't that just precious? :D
While we were out Zoey spent time with Uncle Edwin who brings his friends over to play with her, not a bad uncle huh?. When we were in Alor Star we left her with Momo and Rufus who kept her company
Hellians and ex-Hellians at Lunch
I also managed to have lunch and catch up with my ex-collegues from Hell. Thanks Gladys, Stan and Rosie sis for joining us for lunch at Manila Place Gurney Plaza.
We also dropped by Alor Star airport to test drive some BMWs and it was quite an experience for both Sweetie and Myself. In the car park there was a beast just sitting there, the all new Nissan GTR35 covered in mattblack stickers looked magnifico with titanium exhaust pipes, huge brembo brakes and 22 inch rims.
Beauty & The Beast?
Then there was the long drive home with quite a lot of traffic, just because it was a long weekend in conjunction with Independence Day.
