The Chinese F1 Grand prix is now done and dusted and man what a race! This year is shaping up to be a interesting season, even though the new qualifying was a mess (thank goodness they went back to the old system), the idea of having a variety of tyre compounds available to the drivers to chose from has worked wonders for the race, its given many ( drivers, engineers, media, fans) lots to think and talk about. Next is the Russian Grand Prix and we can't wait to see how things will continue to unfold.
Ps. Poor Daniel Ricciardo, that was some bad luck! We were all feeling it that afternoon dude... =(
About 6 weeks ago we went to Albert Park, Melbourne for the first F1 race of year. This came about after Simon had convinced a friend from the states to come over and give us a hand on the NSX (more on this later). Friday morning we all got this....
Spontaneous trips are the best. We left Saturday after lunch in a hired car, and by 8pm we were having dinner and drinking Sake in Melbourne.
Come Sunday morning and we got up early, showed Makito around Melbourne, got brunch and followed the F1 crowd to Albert Park.
Every year Melbourne puts on a great show, there's some thing for everyone and people that are unlikely to follow F1 or like cars find themselves attending the event. For car enthusiast, its the one day we get to openly celebrate our passion and love for cars with the masses without being shunned and made to feel like a hoon.
Below are some photos John took over weekend. Enjoy.
