F1 Red Bull Racing Sebastien Buemi Interview at Infiniti Center, Chulan Square

Last week was everything F1. Visiting the F1 Paddock was certainly the highlight of my week!

Formula 1 Paddock Club experience

Though I was down with flu and was slightly feverish (I blame it on the F1 🙂 ), I diligently followed the F1 parties, drivers interviews, the news and of course, the races.
One of F1 driver that I got to meet upclose & personal was Sebastien Buemi. Despite his schedule, Sebastien was really friendly and accommodating, taking on questions from the media tirelessly, posing for shots after shots and signing autographs for everyone.

Someone from the media actually asked him to sign her CAR! I thought my Kancil wasn’t worth his signature, so I took an autographed poster and a personal picture instead. 🙂

That will have to do for now. Until the day I can afford an Infiniti car. This one below is rumoured to look alike the next HYBRID by Infiniti. Yes, Infiniti will be launching their Hybrid car very soon!

Sebastien is the official Red Bull Racing Formula One Team test & reserve driver. Borned 1988, he joined Red Bull Racing in 2008 and began his career as an active F1 drive in 2009 for Scuderia Toro Rosso. Buemi has participated in 55 Grand Prix with an accumulated 29 World Championship points. Impressive. I expect to see him as a main F1 driver soon.
