There are just nine months remaining before the SingTel Singapore F1 Grand Prix and pressure is building to find viewing locations and vantage spots around the track. Those looking to watch the race for free can forget it apparently!

Singapore Flyer – a 30-minute ride on the 165m wheel, which should offer views of the track, will cost between $23.60 and $69 when the Flyer opens in March and the night rides (8pm to 10pm) on the race days are likely to cost at least $200 each.

Managing director, Ms Patsy Ong, of Adval Brand Group the Flyer’s ticketing agent says ‘The area around the Flyer, F1 pit building and street circuit will be cordoned off during the race period. Those who want to visit the Flyer will have to purchase race passes from Singapore GP (the race promoter) to access the track-side.’

The Singapore Cricket Club (SCC) and Singapore Recreation Club (SRC) are in discussions as to whether their members will be able to watch the race from their premises.

A 50 year old businessman, member of both clubs, complained, ‘Why should members pay the race promoter if we want to watch it from our premises? It doesn’t make sense, the race is encroaching on our space.’

The chances of anyone getting free glimpses of the race are slim. Singapore GP’s executive director Michael Roche, stated ‘We need to ensure fans get maximum value from our range of daily or season passes. We will erect screening fences at appropriate heights to restrict any unauthorised views.’

The three-day F1 race, which aims to draw 240,000 visitors, can cost up to $150million to stage annually.

Red Bull drivers look forward to Singapore December 11, 2007

RedBull’s David Coulthard is excited (almost!) about another demanding circuit in 2008.

‘I haven’t yet seen the Singapore track although I have seen the map of the proposed layout and it looks interesting. In the past we had quite a few street circuits, but recently Monaco has been the only one. In 2008, we will have three on the calendar, with Valencia also hosting a street race.’ ‘I always like visiting somewhere new and learning a new track and the fact this will be the first ever Formula One night race means it will be particularly special and memorable’

Coulthard thinks that ‘by definition, all street circuits are demanding, not technically, as average speeds are usually not so fast, but they all demand maximum concentration all the time, as kerbs and barriers are very near the edge of the track.

Asked what he felt was the most challenging circuit DC responded ‘Monaco is the most demanding circuit we race on so far, for the reasons I have described: The barriers are very close and the slightest mistake is severely punished, whereas at a normal circuit you can spin off into a gravel trap or a tarmac escape road and get going again. The tight and twisty nature means it is physically demanding too.’

Coulthard’s RedBull team mate Mark Webber comments ‘it’s always difficult to guesstimate how tough a circuit will be on paper so obviously I’ll have a greater impression after I’ve driven it. ‘But, unquestionably it’s going to be very unique racing under lights.’

Webber also considers Monaco the toughest circuit ‘Monaco because in terms of safety and design, it is very old in its layout which means very, very minimal room for error which I like as it provides us with the greatest test and challenge,’.

‘It’s always exciting to race at brand new venues and to have a new race which is also a street circuit and at night makes it an even greater thrill.

‘I’m a big fan of street circuits as they are far more punishing than most purpose-built tracks so if a driver gets it wrong and makes a mistake out on the track, there’s usually a big price to pay for it,’ says the Australian.

Renault confirm talks with Alonso for 2008 December 8, 2007

Renault sources confirmed have the team are in talks with Fernando Alonso regarding driving for the team in 2008. “We’re talking to Fernando,” said a team spokesperson. “But no conclusions have been reached from those talks.”

After a falling out with McLaren boss Ron Dennis and quitting McLaren only one third of the way through his contract, Alonso, the 26 year old former world champion currently has no team to drive for next season. It is believed Renault had been unwilling to commit to Alonso for next year until the risk of them being thrown out of the constructors championship for spying had abated.

The decision by the FIA in the home of the most prestigious of races, the Monaco Grand Prix, not to punish Renault has cleared the way for Alonso to negotiate a return to his former 2005 & 2006 world championship winning team. This is despite Renault being found guilty, much like McLaren were with Ferrari, of possessing technical data belonging to the other.

The Blue Wave cites Monaco Grand Prix as start of irregular treatment of Alonso… December 5, 2007

Posted by FugareF1 in Uncategorized.
add a comment

A group calling itself “The Blue Wave” has written to the FIA complaining against what it cites is the irregular treatment of Fernando Alonso by McLaren.

The Blue Wave has specified eleven separate events over the course of the season. These include the now famous incident at the Monaco Grand Prix in which Hamilton attempted to overtake Alonso for the lead in defiance of ‘team orders’ not to.

Blue Wave allege that by complaining to the FIA and the British press Hamilton “provoked” the investigation against Alonso and that this shows McLaren’s favouritism of Hamilton over Alonso. They also claim this caused “serious damage” to Alonso and his career and, in support, they collected more than 133,000 signatures from 77 countries over the course of 15 days via an online petition.

“The team took no measure whatsoever towards L. Hamilton, and did not support F. Alonso,” says the group.

Indian billionaire Vijay Mallya, the new owner of the Spyker (formerly Jordan & Midland) F1 team has agreed to appear at the 2007 Motor Sport Business Forum in Monaco, home of the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix.

The new team, Force India, is joined by a new race (in 2010) in India. Announced formerly by Bernie Ecclestone after years of speculation the new race will be held in the National Capital Region of New Delhi. Mr Mallya has been a driving force in securing the race and is looking forward to addressing the forum in Monaco.

“A great many top executives from the world of global motorsport will be in Monaco and, from a business point of view, the Forum is the ideal place and time to introduce the Force India F1 concept to the great and good of the industry,” Mallya, stated.

Mallya joins Formula One figures such as FIA president Max Mosley, fellow team principals and bosses, as well as Eurosport’s Jacques Raynaud, Sir Jackie Stewart, ING F1 programme director Isabelle Connor and WilliamsF1’s head of marketing Scott Garrett on the list of speakers.

The Forum will once again precede the FIA Gala Awards Dinner in Monaco.

Another chapter in the F1 spying saga November 13, 2007

Posted by FugareF1 in Monaco GP 2007, Uncategorized.

Renault refuted allegations of spying claiming there was no data from McLaren in their vehicles. McLaren has been the subject of a record $100 million fine this year, as well as being stripped of their constructors championship points, for being in possession of Ferrari information.

The team has been summoned to appear before the governing body in Monaco on the 6th of December 6 and claim that a former McLaren employee had been suspended shortly after joining Renault last year and as soon as it became apparent that he may have been in possession of sensitive McLaren technical data.

The employee, an engineer, has been named as Phil Mackereth and Renault were apparently made aware of the problem a matter of days before the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. The team claim the information was “contained on old-style floppy discs and included copies of some McLaren engineering drawings and some technical spreadsheets” and was “without the knowledge of anyone in authority in the team.”
