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

Aside from all the excitement of meeting a F1 driver, here’s a bit about Sebastien.
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.
This year marks the 2nd year of a partnership between Infiniti and Red Bull Racing Formula Team. This collaboration allows prominent Infiniti brand presence on the F1 cars, drivers and team equipment and in line with Infiniti’s ethos of Inspired Performance.

A F1 driver wannabe? Well, there were F1 driving stimulators for us that day. Too bad I was in a dress!
So, how was the F1 week for the rest of you guys??
