Wow, what a weekend that was! Race day saw the biggest gathering of people yet at the Bahrain International Circuit, with a crowd of almost 43,000. I'll let the photos do most of the talking (click each one for large size):
A bunch of interesting characters around:
Some cool dance, music and art performances:
Flag displays with the national anthem a little before the race:
And the seats start filling up a few minutes before the race, as the cars start lining up as a plane flies above the circuit, then they're off!
And the crowds after the race is over; this is what 43,000 people look like all at once :p
Overall, a good race as Massa took the lead, a great day with everybody having lots of fun, and I managed to top it off with an after party hosted by Akon, then an after-after party hanging out with Akon, his crew and a bunch of DJ's. Got back home at 6:00am. Beautiful; feels like i'm 17 again! :D
If you read my previous post on George Lucas, you probably know I got a little disappointed not managing to see him :( But guess what, going through my photos today, I realize I did!
Take a look at the crowd taking a stroll through the pit-lane in the top right?
And zooming in, guess who??
Dammit! I was THIS close to him and didn't even realize! Oh well, maybe i'll catch him next year! :)
