Contents / Formula One at Istanbul Park
The world's biggest and most popular motor race, Formula 1 continues in Istanbul on 21 August...

It's only minutes, seconds even, to the race... In the stands fifty thousand spectators wait with baited breath for the five red lights to go out. But first a short warmup lap. The speed warriors are taking their places in the cockpit. Fernando Alonso, David Coulthard, Kimi Raikkonen, Michael Schumacher, Rubens Barrichello, Juan Pablo Montoya, Jarno Trulli and the others... The first light goes out. It's only about two minutes now until the start. If everything goes right, of course. The spectators are impatient. "Four lights are still on; if only they'd go out and the race would begin..." The mechanics surround the cars, warming up the tires. Now the second light goes out. At last they can start gathering up their tools. The director of the race, Charlie Whiting, turns to the team managers: the minute he gets the 'No problem' sign, the third light goes out as well. The mechanics withdraw to the sidelines and the last red light is extinguished.
