2009 F1 Malaysia Grand Prix

The Malaysian F1 race was held on 5 April 2009 at Sepang International Circuit. I went there with my friend to experience myself this exhilarating F1 race. I reached the circuit around 12.30 pm, the weather was so hot.
The racing teams made their last preparation before the racing.
Some of the F1 fans from around the world.
Before the main event (F1 Race), there was Asian GP race. While the Asian GP race in progress, the rain started to fall heavily.
Then, the rain stopped. The sky slowly start to clear again.
Before the F1 race, the drivers took a ride on open roof bus around the track.
Then, the race started..
The sound of the F1 cars engine is so loud, it can damage your hearing. Luckily, I bought the ear plug just before entering the circuit. Using the ear plug, the loud sound can be decreased a bit. But, the sound of this F1 piercing engine what make the race so interesting.
After completed about half of the total laps, the sky again become darker and start to downpour.
Finally, the race stopped after 32 laps, scheduled for 56 laps due to the heavy rain. And the winner of the race was Jenson Button from Brawn-Mercedes. Congratulation!
Sorry, the photos are not so perfect, I am not good in capturing fast moving objects and using zoom lens.
