    I was there, really. Invited by Kaspersky, on a yacht. Once in a lifetime opportunity.

    Just too late to take a pic, mainly because you can't hear the engine

    Very cool about the Model S. I have been there twice for the race; it is a must for auto fans! Can't wait for Formula E though.

    So how much quieter are the new hybrid F1 engines in person?!

    So much quieter that the Australian GP promoters were contemplating suing F1 organizers for not providing the promised spectacle.

    You could see the Model S parked up behind the live Sky TV UK feed when commentator Martin Brundle began his grid walk, looking up to the first corner, a good minutes worth of chatter from him with car visible just behind him, parked on the left as you view on the screen. White with a red logo across the rear.

    Lucky, lucky lucky! Would love to go to the Monaco GP, so far I've only managed the British and Austin. Will be watching highlights later...

    I wonder how much this had to do with Elon Musk and Princess Charlene both being South African by birth??

    Doubt it was a 'coincidence' or good marketing by Tesla...........
