Today was media day at the Singapore GP and things looked a little different in the Singapore paddock this year. New two-storey hospitality suites have been built behind the garages. I’m staying just a short walk from the track and as I entered this morning I came across this autograph hunter who had 2 suitcases full of model F1 cars that he hoped the drivers would sign. No doubt they’ll end up on eBay. Of course it was hot and humid, every day here is hot and humid. F1 boss Chase Carey felt the heat, removing his jacket. I can’t work out how he tolerated the long sleeve shirt. My cotton polo shirts end up sopping wet in just an hour or so. Thursday is media day and there were plenty of journos and still- and video-cameras to be seen and drivers answering probing questions. Olivier Jolin (below right) owns Bell Helmets and arranged for me to shoot 2018 Sauber driver (2019 Ferrari driver) Charles LeClerc one on one after I took this shot with Sauber team boss Frederic Vaseur. And this was the tight shot I was aiming for. I only had a chance to fire off two frames before he had to leave us so I was thankful this one worked well.He was also happy to show off his new Bell helmet. It’s understood that Daniel Ricciardo will wear Bell next year (he currently wears Arai as Red Bull has an arrangement withthe manufacturer. Speaking of the likable Aussie, he took Max Verstappen for a spin around the track in a rickshaw late in the evening. Today’s press conference featured plenty of dry wit from Kimi Raikkonen who raised a smile on a number of occasions. I noticed this substantial piece of bling around Lewis’ neck, well it’s impossible not to notice it! The pendant is in a shape of a tiger and is mighty impressive.He also avoided any delays by using his scooter to return to the hospitality suite after his media pen interviews this evening.With the cars on track tomorrow in the later afternoon it’s time for me to sign off, but here’s a short video that I invite you to watch.
