Formula One – Singapore StyleAll eyes in the Formula One world will be on Singapore this weekend for the 2012 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix. My F1 insiders tell me that this is truly the most anticipated race of the year. Monaco is always number one in the press, but Singapore is number one with the in-crowd. Night racing on the downtown streets of Singapore? Yes, please! Even the most “been-there, done-that” F1 insider can’t resist the lure of Singapore.

Sahara Force India’s, Paul Di Resta and Nico Hülkenberg both have experience in Singapore with Paul having a tremendous finish in 2011 gaining the team eight precious points. Nico recently commented on Sahara Force India TV that this race requires a completely different approach with it being the toughest race of the year – physically and mentally.

Race results depend on performance, reliability and speed – all concepts that resonate deeply here at Internap. With a local office in Singapore and 10 years in the global hosting business powering top Internet applications and websites, we’ve developed the best infrastructure approach in Asia. The entire F1 community looks forward to this race and we at Internap look forward to a race on our semi-home turf.

Now that I think about it, our turf is actually the entire Internet. Because of our Managed Internet Route Optimizer (MIRO) technology, we give you a performance boost when routing your IP traffic across the globe. Kind of like DRS for F1 – increasing speed to facilitate passing.

So I am ready to experience my next Grand Prix thanks to the gentlemen at SPEED – Bob Varsha, David Hobbs and Steve Matchett – who I affectionately refer to as the F1 trifecta. They will guide me through the circuit, the driver lineup and the finer points of pit stop strategy. Join me this weekend for a Grand Prix unlike any other and as Bob likes to say at the start of every race – here come the lights, turn up the volume!
