Formula 1 Malaysia GP 2014 Pics

Recommended Posts

I won last year's Autocar - Castrol GP predictor and was sent to Malaysia to watch the race at Sepang. :D

I was there only for the race day and was in Citrine grandstand pretty close to the track. Overall experience was really good.

Since the lane was a very fast one, I could only get some pics and most of them blurred. Check them out.

This ia just a teaser pic. Waiting to see the rest of them. Watching a Grand Prix live is an out of the world experience. Nothing comes close. Only thing is now those 1.6 litre V6 engines are a downer in terms of noise. Do post more pics and write about your experience.

I was getting late to the start. So, had to rush to my stand. Luckily my stand dint have ant seats assigned.

I could go to any place along the long stretch. through out the race I was moving to different places.

Since the stand was right next to the track, we could get pretty close view of the cars. But, since it was a fast late with DRS active, cars were zooming pretty fast.

Only way to take a picture is to zoom at the turn on the right side of the stand. Most of the the following pics are going to be that way.

Some action during initial laps

I tried to grab some pictures on the straight instead of the turns and this is how they turned up.

I wish I could get a closer pic of this Williams Martini . I believe, this is the best looking car this season with those stripes.

If I start ranting about the sound this year, I don't think it will ever end. At first, it sounded like gokart with bigger engine. But then with all the action on the track, I forgot completely about the sound after a while.

I do have some videos which show how it sounds. Let me know if someone wants to hear it.
