Formula 1cocktails? Formula 1 cocks more like …

And the copy … “Getting you revved up for the Formula 1 season. It’s our pleasure. Please approach our ladies or gentlemen for more information” … could easily be misinterpreted as a theme night at the local brothel.

Another gratuitous attempt to jump on the Singapore Formula 1 bandwagon. What next, Formula 1 bog roll? For when you have to ‘shit and go’ in a hurry?

Shit & go? Now that’s an advertising proposition 🙂

I wish I was on that bandwagon…
If you are there on the night of the race do take some photos Rob/Jill!

I’ll do better than that Mr M, I’ll take a video and compare it to the noise of the Singapore Air Force blowing hundreds of thousands of dollars on tourism aerobatic practice 😉

Damn straight Lauren, modern turbo technology started out in Formula one. Things like anti lock brakes, semi automatic gearboxes, downforce/grip aerodynamics, traction control etc all were developed for or largely by F1 teams.

I love F1.
I also love that my desk looks straight down on the back straight of the Melbourne track. Oh yeeeeah!

Advice for you Andy, don’t order a salad unless it’s a steak salad 🙂

As for F1, their influence on modern day driving is immense, similar to military innovation which is why I loved the “From tactical to pratical” line the Brooklyn Brothers, so accurate.
