Grand Prix sunset

  • Fernado Alonso, driving the Ferrari, has just won the Formula One Grand Prix of Malaysia. Just moments after he has sprayed the winners champagne the Grandstands are emptying quickly as the vast crowds rush for the exits in the hope of somehow beating the traffic that will soon choke the roads surrounding the circuit at Sepang.

    It’s been a long race, delayed by a heavy thunder storm that actually delayed my friend Will and I from getting to the circuit on time to see the start of the race. Fortunately for us, race organisers stopped the race after eight laps as lightening repeatedly struck buildings around the circuit and the spray from the race cars made visibility for the drivers so dangerous it was unsafe to continue.

    When the race restarted we were in our seats, in a great position to see a great deal of the track for what turned out to be an absolutely thrilling race.
