Formula 1 Grand Prix 2008, Day 1

Testing day today, so not really much to do besides crowd watching. Just a few photos to let you know how it's going down at the Bahrain International Circuit:



If you're interested, you can get lifted and suspended via a big crane. This got me a cool shot though; the dude looks like he's been hanged:


Formula One driving simulations:




There was also a little Ferrari car show:



And if you get too hot, there's always the refreshing water sprinkler path thingy (not suitable for women who have just had their hair done)


Nice to see a section showcasing Bahrain's traditional craft:


Some unknown music band playing hits from the 80's :S



Guys who jump into tiny pools from extreme heights:


And guys who jump into tiny pools after being set on fire:



Freaky stuff; a walking and talking Traffic Sign and Traffic Light:


Some dude who can amazingly balance a ball on his neck (wow, just what i've always wanted to see)


I sort of went a little late so I didn't manage to catch the F1 cars testing, so hopefully i'll go a little earlier tommorow (for the qualifying session). As for those who are into speed, here's a photo of a Porsche zooming down the track to whet your appetite till tommorow:
