I’ve been working on something pretty cool this week in my day job. Singapore Airlines is the sponsor of the Singapore Grand Prix, and to celebrate we headed down to Canary Wharf with an F1 simulator car to give Forumla 1 fans a chance to get behind the wheel and race the Singapore Night Race track. One lucky person will be heading off to Singapore to enjoy the Grand Prix in September.
To kick off this event we took British F1® driver Max Chilton and Sky Sports presenter Natalie Pinkham to meet fans and race themselves. I of course had to get my picture taken with them :-) I think after working with Max and his team Marussia F1 on a previous project I am going to have to keep routing for Max and the team!
The 2014 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix Experience in London’s Canary Wharf is running until this Friday 18 July – so there’s still time to enter.
Check out this video of Max and Natalie talking about the Singapore Grand Prix. Max shares what it’s like to drive the Marina Bay Street Circuit at the premier night race, why street circuits are popular amongst fans around the world, and how the current F1® season is stacking up – including who he thinks will walk away with the drivers’ championship, Rosberg v Hamilton.
And for the real F1 geeks, here are some fun facts for you.
