We left the condo at 7:15am for our 35 minute commute to the track parking lot and boarded our school bus to the circuit. All up it takes about an hour to reach our seats in the grandstand at turn 1.


There was not as much fog today and it soon cleared for the third and final practice to get underway on time.

Following practise we made our way down to the tunnel leading to the infield to meet up with Mike. We are scheduled to be in the Force India pit area for qualifying. Mike met us at the tunnel with the passes and we quickly made our way into the inner sanctum of the Formula One paddock. The drivers were already in their cars ready for qualifying, so we heading through the back of the garage past the tyre warmers, engineers and spares thru to the front of the garage. Force India have set up a "Fish Bowl" similar to McLaren, where guests are invited into the garage in a glass bubble between the cars. From this vantage point we can see both cars being prepared for qualifying and then released onto the track. It is amazing to see how quick everything happens.




More to Follow tomorrow when I have time to update the photos and videos.
