    i want to become volunteer also if they allow me to snap here and there

    bro, it is not so easy as you think, u don't know behind the scenes yet and all the secret and highly specialised F1 training we go through, even more tough than SOF training, we are elite ok, not some temp job kids like those who apply through employment agencies.

    All the F1 marshals are mostly Uncle or ah peks, you will not see any teenagers because they cannot handle the job...even those Austrialian F1 marshals who are coming here to supervise are all uncle and ah peks....did you know that a 51yr old Aussie F1 marshal was killed in 2001 by a flying tyre when a F1 car crashed and the debris was flung in all directions? KNN, you say wu hua or bo hua?

    some singapore F1 volunteer marshals don't dare to tell their wives that they are going to be involved on 27 Sept because they scared later the wives will nag and not allow them to go. Even though there is a barrier fence, there is a chance we may lose our lives on 27 Sept and not return to our families. Singaporegp got our next-of-kin tel number in case we die, I am not joking. You think our job very easy? FAT HOPE!

    Well that's why you have to sign indemnity form correct?

    The last f1 marshals who were killed were in 2001 Italian Grand Prix and 2001 Australian Grand Prix.

    I will tell you a secret. The best location you want to station yourself on Sunday is at One Fullerton. The view and ACTION will be one of the most fantastic and SPECTACULAR. Trust me. The other fantastic location is Turn 1, but I don't think your pass will give you access to Turn 1. Here is how your pass will look like......

    Thanks Bro... Yup I agree the chicane from Fullerton to Esplanade Drive is quite sharp, probably they will slow enough to 1/250sec.

    Does it allow me to bring DSLR? thanks for info.

    just flipped through the manual. yup... there are repeated pages as well as missing pages... sigh.

    on the jumpsuit... either we go with the Rebel Alliance or we look like some Guantanamo Bay inmates...
