Salam and hello all. I know this is quite a late entry but anyway, I want to write a little bit about it because I went to this event, I mean ya, I went to Sepang International Circuit on 5 April 2009 to watch this Petronas Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix. Even though the ticket that I have bought is valid for two days which are qualifying and race day, but since one of my housemate who also the one who should accompany me to this event had his last exam paper on Saturday, so I decided to go on Sunday.
My housemate and I have bought the ticket for the Hillstand C2 at student rate. Hoho, the best thing to be a student is you’ll get a lower price of ticket up to 75% off! Isn’t it great? Haha.
Without further ado, for those who yet know about the result, I’ll tell about it now. I’m expecting some of you might not care about it, but whatever it is, here is the result.
1. Jenson Button (Brawn-Mercedes)
2. Nick Heidfeld (BMW Sauber)
3. Timo Glock (Toyota)
4. Jarno Trulli (Toyota)
5. Rubens Barrichello (Brawn-Mercedes)
6. Mark Webber (RBR-Renault)
7. Lewis Hamilton (McLaren Mercedes)
8. Nico Rosberg (Williams-Toyota)
If you watch the race last Sunday on television or you watch it lives at SIC, I guess you should know already what actually happened. I know the result was quite controversial since the race was completed only with 33 laps, but I think the decision that has been taken was the best since the rain was quite heavy on that day plus the race has started late, about 5pm and the race has stopped due to safety issue at 6pm and it was impossible for the race to be continued after the rain has stopped about 6.45pm. During that time, it was already dark at SIC. Moreover, SIC is not ready for night race like in Singapore.
One of my friends said that, I should claim back half of my money that I have paid for the ticket since the race was not completed completely, but I don’t think it is a big deal since it was an interesting race and I enjoy it. If you are the one who paid for the ticket, do you really think that you should claim back your money? Haha. Give me your opinion then.
I’ll stop here for now. Wait for my next entry for more photos during the race of Petronas Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix and at the SIC. I’ll post more pictures in the next entry. So, stay tuned ya! Till next entry, bye!
