The Other Side of F1 Singapore

The Formula One circus came into town last weekend and entertained more than 250,000 spectators with racing action, car crashes and pop music. The race even featured a random male taking a leisurely stroll along the track while race cars whizzed dangerously past him.
While we didn’t see the now-famous stroller, we did catch the sounds and the resulting aftermath of the Formula One race. As is the tradition of every Formula One race in Singapore, the track is opened to the public on the final day. Naturally, tens of thousands of people streamed down onto the asphalt, if only to walk freely on roads that are normally jam packed with cars on typical days. Most were looking to weave their way to the Padang to catch Bon Jovi rocking out. Unfortunately, the only way was to go through small holes in the fence. One even climbed the scaffold.
If you didn’t catch Pharrell, Maroon 5 and Bon Jovi, then you missed out on an incredible aural weekend. If you did, well, you’ll probably agree with me that it was a festival for the ages. Either way, relive the weekend with our selection of pictures below.
