  1. Really encouraging to see F1 venue being in touch with the fans! – Wake up Silverstone, Spa, Barclelona etc…

  2. Yeah, I am quite impressed with Singapore trying to incorporate the fans into things too. A lot of the other circuits could do with taking a leaf..

  3. It is suprising that they are actually encouraging people to take photos … In the original terms and conditions for 2008 Singapore GP there were quite tough restrictions on photo equipment one could take to the grandstands. These were removed few weeks before the race and now they even run a contest for the best fan photo :-)
