Marlboro M.Scape – Experience of a Lifetime at the Malaysian Formula One Grand Prix 2014
I’ve been a fan of Formula One for over 10 years so I was very delighted to be invited to the M.Scape – Experience of a Lifetime VIP lounge at the Malaysian F1 GP 2014. This year was the first year that the cars would be using the new powertrain and energy recovery systems so I was really curious to hear what they would sound like. Also an invite from M.Scape is always to something that’s luxurious and exclusive so I was definitely excited to see what was in store this time round!
We gathered at the meeting point in KL city on race day then boarded some coaches which brought us over to the Sepang International Circuit. I took the opportunity to catch up some sleep as I was out the previous two (2) nights attending events (F1 week is always pretty happening). Eventually we made our way there and entered the special M-Scape VIP lounge in the Paddock Club.
Lots of pretty M-Scape brand ambassadors to look after us
As I had the Sony Alpha 5000 with me that day, I decided to test out its Shutter Priority Mode and as we were right above the Ferrari garage I managed to shoot a pit stop.
The race was won by Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes followed by his team mate Nico Rosberg, with Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel in third place. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso came in fourth while Kimi Raikonnen came home in 12th position.
A great and most unforgettable experience by M-Scape! This has to be the best ever way to watch Formula One!
