2011 Formula One Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix (or, what we did last weekend)

4/11/11

This past weekend, we went up to KL for the 2011 Formula One Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix at Sepang Circuit. It was a lot less flashy than the Singapore Grand Prix we went to last year, but still lots of fun. Jeff is a huge F1 fan (and Vettel supporter) and is taking full advantage of the F1 races in such close proximity to us. Unlike Singapore's circuit which takes place on the streets of downtown Singapore, the Sepang Circuit is an actual race track which made viewing the race a bit more comfortable. 

Grey clouds loomed over the track all weekend and the teams were anticipating rain to fall about 10 minutes into the race. Except for a small sprinkling of rain right before the race on Sunday was about to start, Mother Nature held off on the rain storm until Monday morning. I guess she's a race fan, too.

Satay for lunch.

 We found ourselves in this line often during the weekend.

F1 races are deafeningly loud. Ear plugs are a must!

We're definitely looking forward to the Singapore Grand Prix later this year, especially since Linkin Park is scheduled to perform. The one thing we missed at the Malaysia Grand Prix were the concerts every night of the race. There was not as much emphasis on the entertainment at Malaysia GP like there was at Singapore's race. Last year we saw Adam Lambert and Daughtry perform. Although we aren't huge fans of them, seeing live performances is something we always enjoy.

We bought tickets for the Singapore Grand Prix as soon as they went on sale. Are you going?

    I have never been to the F1 race in Malaysia but I can imagine Singapore's F1 to be a lot more dazzling and hyped-up, especially when it comes to advertising and entertainment. Went for the F1 ROCKS concert 2yrs back and had a blast when BEP and Beyonce performed! Not too sure if I'll be going this yr but I certainly hope I do!

    Did u guys get the walkabout or seat tickets? :)

  3. @blisschic, we get grandstand seats. The thing that sucks about Singapore's grandstands is that they aren't covered, so you have to bring a poncho if it rains!
