The start of the 2015 Formula 1 season cannot come soon enough for fans like Yours Truly. Thankfully, it’s just 4 weeks away! It will begin with the Australian Grand Prix, which has been held at Melbourne’s Albert Park since 1996.
For this season’s Singapore Grand Prix, the McLaren F1 team nominated me to write the fan blog. My post is up on their website! ‘Chuffed’ doesn’t begin to describe the feeling. I would like to thank the team publicly for the opportunity to share my experience with a wider audience.

One of my favourite things to do in the days leading up to the race is to walk the Marina Bay street circuit and see it take shape around me, and it is entirely possible up to midnight on Wednesday evening.
