Kimi Raikkonen Rascassed in comedy of errors

leave a comment

Monaco Grand Prix 2007

It was an eventful qualifying session, the rain threatened to make the whole qualifying a poker game, but rain was not the only thing making the evening interesting. It seemed like a comedy of errors.

Kimi Raikkonen during the second qualifying session clipped a barrier and came to a standstill at the Rascasse corner , reminding some people of Michael Schumacher’s qualifying here last year. His car lay on the track diagonally ,Felipe Massa narrowly avoided hitting the Finn. Kimi at this point had two front wheels pointing in separate directions. Ferrari’s pit crew worked hard to repair the damage to kimi’s car but could do so till the end of the second session and Kimi was eliminated.

Kingfisher holds biggest Glam bash at Monaco

leave a comment

Kingfisher logo Toyota F1
Its not easy to steal the spotlight at Monaco, but Thursday night saw one of the biggest bashes of 2007 being held at Monaco, but the host was not someone you would expect.

No , it was not Steinmetz , it wasn’t Hugo Boss, it wasn’t some flashy swiss watch brand,neither was it Red Bull but Indian liquor and airline company Kingfisher which held the biggest bash of the week at Monaco. The bash was organised by Vijay Mallya who is known for his overly glamorous lifestyle. It was organised on the 95m long Indian Empress yacht overlooking the Monaco circuit.

The bigwigs at the party included Bernie Ecclestone, Tadashi Yamashina ,Flavio Briatore, Dr. Mallya himself and a lot more. Its rumoured that Vijay Mallya and Bernie Ecclestone discussed the Indian Grand Prix also at the bash.
The party witnessed performances by glamorous Indian dance troupes, DJ Aqueel and Jay Z and just as the party was coming to a close, people from other parties started pouring in when they heard that Kingfisher’s party was the place to be.
