    Totally agree I dont think she was too keen onto f1 anyway. Might workout a bad move in that she might spend all our spending money over the weekend. lol.

    @hendo1: Can’t go wrong with the official site: http://www.malaysiangp.com.my/

    As for where to sit, I sat at Crystal when I was there – worked a treat! You can also go for K1 if you want a wider view of the track. You can check out pictures at the website.

    I’m heading to Malaysia for the race and I’m looking at buying seats in the K1 grandstand… I’d appreciate your input/experiences if you’ve sat in the grandstand before. Should we sit high or low, block A end, middle block f, or block r end?

    Thanks race fans!

    Hey Ken,

    if you use the SIC seat viewer, that gives a rough idea of what you will see. But the K1 seems to be the best for action and overall view.

    Thanks for the info guys! The complete list of the autograph sessions are posted in the Malaysian GP website. :)

    This will be my first time in Malaysia. I’ll be watching from Grandstand F. I know there are TV screens there, but should I still rent FanVision? And given where I am, how do I get to their stall?

    Also, is there only one entrance to the race track? How do I get to and from Grandstand F? If there’s a shuttle, can I hop on and off freely?

    Thanks!

    Just sorted my FanVision rentals online. Anyone know what the deposit costs? i know you get it back just want to know how much RM to take to track, dont like using credit cards overseas where possible.

    Its going to be a blast. will be doing a twitter/blog for this as i wont be doing it again. come and catch up in KL and follow. Tommo@Number20six , still quite new to it. i been following Keith also. The VIP afterparty should be very interesting although i have read and heard only the tail end drivers attend, still will be good to chat to them.

    Guys, this could be a little late, but I am going to the GP. Tourism Malaysia happened to be giving out free tickets to American Tourists. Check http://www.tourismmalaysiausa.com/component/content/article/1-latest-news/113-monsoon-cup

    Anyone else in the Citrine Stands?

    Lucky American. Just call and get the ticket, no contest, no quiz whatsoever.

    Well you have to be travelling to KL around the time of the GP, so I guess it evens out. ;)

    Not sure about fanvision rentals but hopefully they’re going to have the booth at mall area/ F1 village because the screen is far away at Granstand F.

    The shuttle bus is free around the circuit and runs continuosly and it stop for drop-offs and pick up at every gate/ grandstand. However on Sunday this can become very unreliable and a bit chaotic.

    btw, on friday usually the public got free access to all grandstand regardless of your tickets.

    well F1 Rocks concert and afterparty got canned, not happy but doesnt matter, ticket was free.

    i was reading about the preparations for the mass influx from this friday onwards and it got me thinking again about the best mode of transport. While the train makes sense due to not being on the road and all, i was thinking because the seats are pretty much unlimited and there are almost twice the amount of stops as the bus, would the bus be the better option? the bus is limited to x amount of seats and only stops 4 times max. so i been thinking maybe the bus is the better way after all? can any locals clarify this for me?
