Globe Slipstream 2.0

Globe held the first Slipstream event at BGC last year. It was really fun! I was able to try Pastor Maldonado’s F1 car simulator. Gawd, it was really difficult! I was always in the curb! I can’t bear the square-shaped steering wheel!

This year, Globe held Slipstream 2.0! Compared last year when I tried my luck to see Marlon Stockinger up close (which I was successful), this year I won a Meet and Greet & Pit Walk Pass from Globe! Some people from the event asked me, “Are you a fan of Marlon Stockinger?” To which I answered, “Yes, I came to know him because of my interest in motor sports. Particularly, Formula 1. My first love is actually the Formula 1 Legend, Michael Schumacher!”

I haven’t tried to see a real Formula 1 race, but hey, the sound of the car engine never failed to give me goosebumps! I had a cargasm, really. 

Thanks to Globe, I was able to go near the Pit Garage and gave me another chance to meet the Prince of Speed, Marlon Stockinger! ♥ Which reminds me, when are they gonna upload our pictures?

Danke, Michael.

‎”All I know is, I’m still good enough.”
-Michael Schumacher.

I was only 12 when I became a fan of Michael Schumacher. I became addicted to it: I bought all sports magazine having him in the cover; I made a scrapbook about his F1 career; I never missed a single episode of Formula 1 back then (I even made a contract with my family that I own the remote every weekend, haha lol); I bought Schumi-Ferrari shirts, posters; I was even a member of various online forums discussing Schumi-related issues. Then 2006 came, he announced his retirement with the team and with the sport. I didn’t miss him though, for he became a Consultant with Ferrari. But he returned with the sport having a 3-year contract with Ferrari’s most rival team, Mercedes. I was shocked, really. Nevertheless, I am glad. For I can see him racing again. Racing has been his life. Watching him race has been my life. I was never given a chance to watch a race live. But I know I will. I just don’t know when, and which grand prix. Yes I claim it, I will. And now, his 3-year contract with Mercedes come to an end. Tonight will be his last race. Yes, I’m getting emotional. Readers may find me weird, sorry. Michael Schumacher and Formula 1 has been and will always be my first love. I claim it too, that God will grant me to see you. 😉 Danke, Michael. Ich liebe dich. The legend of Formula 1.
