{September 25, 2009}   Meet the Drivers’ Autograph Session

last night, the geek and i attending an invite only meet the drivers’ autograph session. both of us were only actually interested in lewis hamilton, but got the autographs of the other drivers who were present too since we were already there.

fans were told not to bring memorabilia for the signing. autographs cards were provided. just as well.

the autograph session took place at the singapore gp paddock club. the grandstand at the paddock club is above the pit lane and has plenty of action and the who’s who. if not for winning the online contest i don’t think i’ll be anywhere near the paddock club.

the set up is really plush, similar to a night club cum hotel lobby. free flow of drinks is available from the bar. music plays in the background and glitzy lights oscillates via a projected beam.

the highlight of the evening however was the man himself.

McLaren - Lewis Hamilton 1

lewis hamilton has the best pr skills among all the drivers. he smiled at everyone and indulged his fans with mega watt grins for point blank cameras. he shook hands and greeted everyone. the guys from brawn gp were also rather nice and friendly. most other drivers were sullen and made it obvious that they wanted to get over and done with their pr obligations, especially toyota who were not popular anyway.

tomorrow evening, i’ll be at turn 1 for the qualifier. i’ll have my eyes peeled for the yellow helmet.

more pics to come.
