Singapore: hand of fate

A laser message projected onto the pit buildings says: ‘First F1 Night Race. Thank you for being a part of history.’ History indeed, but F1 people should be thanking the Singapore organisers for a simply superb job. And, just to round off an exceptional weekend, we had an exceptional race.

Singapore GP: quali

So far, so good. In fact, very good. Singapore’s success story continues with a brilliant qualifying before what looked like a packed house. And they saw a mesmeric performance from Felipe Massa, almost out of the blue.

Singapore GP: it’s on

Bernie Ecclestone’s pallor may not flatter the 77-year-old under the amazing floodlights but there could be no disguising his inner glow as he walked the pit lane.

Italian GP: wind of change

It’s refreshing to see a smiling face rather than a hardened campaigner in the post-quali press conference with the attitude that this a chore to got through before the interesting business of a four-hour debrief with his engineer followed by a glass of water and an aspirin salad with his fitness guru.

Italian GP: Mosley time

Any audience with Max Mosley usually has the same outcome. You go armed with questions which you think will either catch him out or prove difficult to answer. And you invariably come away wondering what all the fuss was about and feel apologetic for asking.

Italian GP: here we go!

Monza has a unique buzz. Even on a Thursday. There is something about the place that is difficult to pin point but all you know is that the pulse quickens as you drive through the gates of this ancient wooded park.
