F1 Action resumes

The wait is almost over. Second part of the Formula 1 season is fast approaching. Belgium and the high-speed Spa-Francorchamps will be the next stop on the F1 calendar. The nearly one-month summer break saw Aston Martin Red Bull Racing promote Alex Albon as Max Verstappen’s new teammate. Pierre Gasly will be racing for Toro Rosso for the remaining of the season.

Albon, who has scored 16 points so far this season, has been ecstatic about the opportunity to represent Aston Martin Red Bull Racing starting from the Belgian Grand Prix. He shared his delight on Social Media by saying: “Surreal to have been given this massive opportunity”.

The F1 race in Belgium is a very important one for Scuderia Ferrari as the fast Spa-Francorchamps track gives them an opportunity to bridge the gap to their rivals from Mercedes and Red Bull as recent wins for Max Verstappen in Austria and Germany saw him overtake Sebastian Vettel in 3rd place in the current ranking. Five-time Formula 1 Champion Lewis Hamilton sits comfortably in 1st with teammate Valtteri Bottas in 2nd.


AN ARRAY OF INTERNATIONAL DESIGNERS WILL SHOWCASE THEIR COLLECTIONS AT THIS YEAR’S AMBER LOUNGE SINGAPORE

21 SEPTEMBER AT SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX

The Amber Lounge Singapore Fashion Show will see international models and motorsport drivers showcase this season’s collection of VIP couturier by Frieda Brides and Mr. G, under a blaze of lights on this year’s catwalk.
 
Frieda Brides represents an array of exciting, bridal designers from different corners of the world, who will unite at Amber Fashion to curate a collection of fresh, stunning, elegant, timeless bridal gowns capitulating this year’s, ‘Ice White’ theme. 
 
This ambitious and cutting-edge collective was established two years ago, and has been widely featured on Singapore Brides, The Wedding Scoop, The Wedding Notebook, and Her World Brides. Frieda Brides has also been voted as among the top favourite’s bridal boutiques in Singapore by Expat Living readers in 2019. They represent youth and freshness with an emphasis on romantic, uncomplicated and stylish gowns.
 
"Formula 1 has always been one of the most exciting events in. We are so honoured to be part of it as one of the brands showcasing at the Amber Lounge Fashion Show, which is such an innovative concept, bringing together motorsport, entertainment and fashion... all the best things in life in one place!" Frieda Brides.
 
Gary Ong and Jonathan Wong established their Singaporean-based tailoring label in 2014, with the prime focus of providing a wardrobe to take all clients effortlessly through every significant milestone in life, creating elegant, timeless pieces.
 
Mr. G began as one of the pioneer travelling suit-makers in Singapore where bespoke tailoring was matched with the utmost convenience and comfort of the client.  This personalised service remains the ethos of Mr. G with the establishment of his first flagship showroom in the heart of Singapore.
 
Mr G has worked with celebrities such as actors Alan Wan and Benjamin Kheng, DJ Kimberly Wang and Mediacorp’s award-winning host artist, Lee Teng.   
 
Co-Founders Gary Ong & Jonathan Wong said: “Amber Lounge’s events are a hallmark of a lifestyle that is both aspirational and luxurious. Although luxurious, the idea behind the Amber Lounge Fashion Show is actually something that is symbolic as the models walking on the runway are not professional models, they are actually drivers who have spent their whole life honing their craft and living up to the passion of racing. This makes the event much more meaningful and not just a show of aesthetics, it has become a celebration and a tribute to the tradition of racing.”
 
A silent auction will run alongside the Fashion Show to raise funds for Make-a-Wish Singapore, whose goal is to create hundreds of thousands of life-changing wishes for children battling a critical illness. The ethos is that a wish-come-true can be a turning point, which allows the children to focus on the possibilities of tomorrow and not the challenges of today. 
 
The Fashion Show is followed by two euphoric Amber Lounge After Parties, which see world famous personalities, VIP’s and Formula 1 drivers partying the night away with International DJ’s and live acts. Amber Lounge exudes everything this electric and cosmopolitan city has to offer during the Singapore Grand Prix weekend.

F1 Update - Mercedes continue to dominate

Lewis Hamilton’s winning streak continued at the 2019 French Grand Prix as the reigning world champion dominated the race with a lights-to-flag win, gaining his sixth victory at Circuit Paul Ricard out of the eight F1 races of the 2019 season. Hamilton picked up his 200th career points finish from 237 F1 starts. His success extended his lead over Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas. The triumph spread throughout the team as Mercedes gained their eighth successive 2019 victory.

"We’re creating history together and I'm so proud of everyone, I’m so proud to be a part of this team, this group of people and Valtteri did a good job this weekend as well."

Lewis Hamilton

Ferrari driver, Charles Leclerc crossed the chequered flag behind Hamilton and Bottas, whilst his teammate Sebastian Vettel only managed to secure fifth place. Having boxed for the penultimate lap for soft tyres, Vettel locked in the fastest lap, receiving the bonus point for the 2019 French Grand Prix, bringing his points up to 111 sitting behind current leader Lewis Hamilton who’s on 187 and his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas on 151.

The race wasn’t as successful for Renault driver Daniel Ricciardo who came into trouble after receiving 2 x 5 second penalties; for leaving the track and gaining an advantage as well as failing to rejoin the track safely, originally finishing in 7th, but after the post-race penalties were given finishing in 11th.

Next stop in the Grand Prix calendar is Red Bull Ring, Austria, June 28-30.

F1 Update: Hamilton’s Triumph in Monaco

A devastating home race for Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc turned into a brilliant victory for Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton. The 77thMonaco Grand Prix brought Lewis his 77thcareer win and third win at the legendary street circuit, which he dedicated to the late, great Niki Lauda.

On Sunday, the grid was filled with drivers sporting red caps in remembrance of the Formula 1 icon who passed away a few days before the race weekend. Hamilton wore a Niki Lauda tribute helmet as he raced, designed specifically for the Monaco GP.

Lewis Hamilton said,

“That was probably the hardest race I’ve had, but nonetheless I really was fighting with the spirit of Niki. I was trying to stay focused and trying to make him proud. That’s been the goal all week and we’re going to try to continue that through the year. We truly miss him.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nE2vQ-Jm7LE

As worn rubber began to line the streets of Monaco, Leclerc experienced another disappointing chapter in his F1 career. He retired on lap 18 due to a damaged rear tyre.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen fought the Mercedes of Hamilton right to the last lap, pushing to steal first place but ending up in 4thdue to a penalty for unsafe release.

Watching the F1 battlefield from Amber Lounge’s trackside yachts were celebrities Blaise Matuidi, Josephine Skriver, Olivia Culpo, Madison Headrick, Marco Verratti and Mark Cavendish MBE among a host of other VIP guests. Come Sunday night the Amber Lounge GP after party was the places to be as drivers, teams, celebrities and VIP guests celebrated with 2019 Monaco Grand Prix.
