F1 challenges

After my post on how much work there are to get ready for F1, it seems that Singaporeans are finally seeing what I saw.

Channel NewsAsia has spoken to several experts and they have listed some technical challenges Singapore will have to overcome. Testing the circuit, getting personnel to man the race, resurfacing of roads, setting up pit areas and barricades, are but some of the problems Singapore will have to solve.

There are also concerns about power supply, and about what happens if it rains. Newspapers in Singapore are saying how F1 racers like Kimi Raikkonen, Mark Webber and Nick Heidfeld like the idea of night racing and street circuits. Of course they say that! What do you expect? That they will admit fear in front of their peers after the agreement has been sign already?

Get ready for a bumpy road (and traffic jams) ahead, people. F1 is coming to town.
