    For a flag marshal, turn 1 is a sibei bo eng sector, but one good thing is that your ang moh sector marshal is one of the best, so your safety and backside is protected, and the best part, especially for all the chee hong guys, your turn have the best chance to catch a glimpse the race queens lah! hahahaha! better bring binoculars!

    I know some things lah, but cannot say too much

    Trust me, turn 1 sure cannot shake leg, because you guys got the least lead time to react after flag off, but if you gel with all your team members on 30 Aug and again during shakedown, you will have no problem during D day. That's why they chose the date 30 Aug instead of after the whole thing is over. They got a reason You think they anyhow put people in turn 1? Think again...you are special breed!

    Who knows, on race day maybe I will walk over to turn 1 to kaypoh and beo chiobu? *oops* give away my location liao...

    Anyone feel the same way as me? It seems like they like to keep volunteers in suspense , don't let you know anything about time and location until last minute. They seem to think they are being very gracious with 3 days advance notice regarding time/duration/location. 3 days notice enough time for you all plan your own schedule bo? Wondering...you all are busy working people or got alot of free time on hand one? aka bum, unemployed, etc...

    For those who want to know where are the best spots on race day,
    here's the map of the secret locations of all the gigantic lcd screens that will be installed on race day. SHIOK BO??

    For those who cannot afford ticket but want to watch the action free and gatecrash to try your luck,
    I have recce very good positions at Marina Square facing Pan Pacific,
    but I will not reveal the secret locations here in case they find out about it and block it.
    All I will say is that you all go and recce the place yourself if you have the time,
    there are quite a few very good spots that they will not be able to barricade or block, heheheh!

    Best locations to get BEST VIEW:
    - near gate 6, on the esplanade bridge after fullerton (there is a roof access on one fullerton btw )
    - Singapore Flyer onwards all the way until near gate 1
    - between the overhead bridges near Mandarin Oriental facing Pan Pacific Singapore

    Best locations to SNAP CHARBOR (in audience):
    - in front of floating platform
    - One raffles link facing nicoll highway
    - City Hall facing Padang


    Best locations to CATCH ACCIDENTS :
    - corner of singapore cricket club facing old supreme court onwards until turn after Anderson bridge
    - turn 1
    - turn 7

    Best locations with GOOD FOOD & SHELTER in case of rain :
    - Marina Square
    - near gate 3, can run to City Hall (best option)
    - near gate 4, can run to Funan center, lots of food court and cheap food there, old chang kee, kfc, pizza hut, pasta, Mac etc (best option)

    Actually there wont be many accidents. They've got huge run off areas like those in Valencia. The safety car wasnt even needed in the race, no red flags in any of the practice sessions. Turn 7 has a huge run off area a.k.a. escape road,

    Outside of turn 1 would be tarmac area.

    You forgot the X factors - Night race + possible rain combo + first time digiflag + first time all teams trying out night specific technical adjustments + first time racing under artificial lighting. If any F1 driver say he is not scared, he is bluffing you.

    Nowadays f1 cars cant over take. It will be more of a precession. F1 drivers are smart nowadays, they wait till pitstops to overtake.

    F1 drivers are not scared. If you are scared you will retire immediately. You never ever let these things get into your head because the more you worry, the higher probability that you make a big accident. E.g. Robert Kubica canada 2007, hamilton barcelona 2008.

    Lighting shouldn't be a problem. The rain will prove that there are no problems. The GPDA just needs assurances. But if the lighting does prove a problem then that would mean a change in the timing of the race next year, meaning 3pm race start time.

    Initially i tot i'll at least see 1 safety car period in valencia. There wasn't even a moment to worry, except for maybe raikkonen's expired engine.

    Oh yes for all marshals, please buy insurance. Last marshal to die was Monza 2001 and Melbourne 2001 when they were struck by flying f1 tyre.

    if this is true, then what's the point of racing? a true-blooded F1 racer would want overtaking to happen on the track and not in the pits. same goes for the fans.

    F1 cars can't overtake because certain tracks design do not give opportunities for overtaking.
