eastern time zone air-times for Speed TV

9:30am friday for practice
10:00am saturday for qualifying
7:30am sunday for race

it took me a while to figure that all out so i'm sharing it. for some reason i thought the race was starting at midnight in singapore which could mean (because according to my gf, they're 12 hours ahead of us) that it could be noon saturday or noon sunday, depending on how they do it. turns out i was way wrong.

i'll miss the race but get to watch qualifying. :hs:


av bets? i'm voting sato. :rofl:

you'd think the pit girls would be hot in singapore, but they're repulsive. i won't bother posting pics. i don't want people getting sick at work.

keep an eye out for my next thread in General Chat. i took my singaporean gf to Fetish Playland downtown and got pics.

[fishnet stockings] - [pants] = [win]

(ok i'll shut up about her now) :rofl:

i've never been there but she says she's considered beautiful there because she looks different....japanese eyes and a pointy nose. :dunno:

i suppose most of the people there are of southeast asian descent. she's chinese. don't know whereabouts in china though. i'll post pics tomorrow. gotta hit the sack soon.

(oh btw this isn't the same gf who went to thailand a few months ago. i dumped her skank ass while she was there and started dating this new chick. best decision i ever made.)

Singapore is very diverse. Mostly, they have Indian, Malay and Chinese. They have a lot of white people too, it being a former colony to the British Empire.

Yeah i figured it wasn't that same girl. U mentioned that it was over, but I never followed up. Happy to hear u've caught the yellow fever brah, now f1 crew will have less and less excuses to come out and visit me :D

Q. (Juha Päätalo - Financial Times Germany) Can you all describe your night time activity here. What are you doing, keeping the room service cooks busy or watching movies?

DC: I think I should get mine out of the way first as it is predictable. Karen is here with me, so I am just using the extra time.

MW: I am not as fortunate as David on this trip as Anne is not here. We have just moved the whole schedule. We are not looking out of the window, we are just looking at the time. It is nothing dissimilar to what we normally do. We are doing exactly what we normally do, it is just six or seven hours later than we normally do. It is quite boring but that's how it is, mate.

HK: Yeah, the same for me. I am more fortunate than Mark as I have got Catherine here with me to keep some company. Otherwise I wake up in the morning at the normal time and I have got some stuff to do in the morning with the team and then I will do some exercise or run around the track. Yesterday I went to do some tennis lessons. Now we are just preparing for the Grand Prix. Nothing really has changed. It is just looking at my watch rather than looking outside to see if it is dark or clear. I am just looking at my watch and do things accordingly.

LH: It is the same for me. I am in the same position as Mark as Nicole is not here. I am just trying to keep myself busy, watching films, playing tennis.


heikki and dc getting their boink on.. webbo just stares at the clock and lewis is watching PPV porn.

At least this race starts later for me to wake up to -- I hope it's exciting though. Maybe these street circuits will be better with the 09 regulations...

Q. From a personal point of view, how have you all prepared for the difference in time zone and the fact that it is a night race? Even the weather forecast and the sponsorship duties you might have. What preparations have you made?

DC: The same sort of thing. In terms of getting used to the timing of the schedule, I have an appearance tonight at midnight which you would never have in your schedule if you were back in Europe. But of course it is all in line with the schedule we are running. I expected the city to be a bit more adapted to our time as when I was trying to get dinner last night at 3 o'clock in the morning I could only find one place open other than room service and you don't want to do a week of room service. That surprised me but apparently this area of Singapore is in lock down, so there isn't too much happening and you have to go a bit further afield to pick up some action.

The straight doesnt look long enough for a tow and going side to side looks nigh on impossible coming out of the chicane

i think it's going to be another valencia...
they don't have enough space to really get up to speed and barely any passing areas...
looks pretty, but i don't have high hopes...
