1Malaysia F1

The expressions on their faces don't convince me that everybody there thinks it is such a great idea.

Very soon we Malaysians will have another argument with our Singaporean neighbours in the kiasu debate. So you have F1 night race. So what? We have................

OUR OWN F1 RACING TEAM!!!

You got ah? No right? Ha!

But seriously speaking though the thought that raced through my mind when I read the news was...........

WHAT FOR???!!!

Surely we have better use for our hard-earned tax money. No? During a time when other seasoned F1 teams are thinking hard about how to keep going due to financial crises we jump into this ultra-expensive game? WHY?

So, it is NOT all tax-payers money. This latest hare-brained idea is to be a partnership between the Government and the private sector. According to The Star story, the partners are the Malaysian government, Air Asia and the Naza Group. Maybe, they will eventually tell us what the shareholding ratio is but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Something also tells me that if the venture is a success then the Malaysian government will be just a small shareholder in a venture to encourage Malaysian entrepreneurship or something. But if it bombs big time then the Malaysian government will be the major shareholder and a major, high-powered task force will be formed to investigate.

So! A Malaysian F1 racing team. And the Prime Minister says it will be based at the Sepang International Circuit.

“This is where the cars will be designed, manufactured and tested. It will be ‘Made-in-Malaysia, by Malaysians’ and of course, the pit-stops will be run by Malay-sians,” he said.
(now, I'm sure you noticed that hyphen in the word Malaysian. Believe me it was written like that in online Star. In the street version the word comes at the end of the column space so the hyphen. Tsk tsk tsk...LOL...)

And this is where I am becoming even more sceptical. Remember, one of the the major partners is a car manufacturing company that is more famous for its power-windows that don't work after a week and gear sticks that come off the floor before the first scheduled service. Proton can't even instill confidence in Malaysian car buyers. How is it going to build an F1 racing car that would even get off the grid? Unless of course it is again WE PAY THE MONEY AND THEN GET THE FOREIGNERS TO DO THE JOB AND WE LATER CLAIM THE CREDIT LOR rule that applies here.

Najib also said, "This is a meaningful development and I hope that it will further raise our country’s profile on the world stage."

There are cheaper ways of getting ourselves on the world stage as you call it. Right? If you need pointers just speak to that Syariah judge from Pahang or the Section 23 cow-head protestors from Shah Alam. I'm sure they've got some more great ideas to share.

Actually, our prime ministers all seem to have some grandoise ideas. At least 1 during their reign...I mean term. Mahathir did the Twin Towers, Putrajaya, Multi-media Super Corridor etc. Badawi had his Angkasawan space tourist so now Najib gets a quick start off the block with the Malaysian F1 Team. Let's hope that 5 years down the road we don't suddenly realise that the "F" there stood for FUCK-UP.

NIAMAH!!!

Pat. I knew you are going to write this when I read the news this morning in The Star.

I am equally frustrated as you are because there were so many problems with our country's project.

To name a few, PKFZ, a stadium in Terengganu collapsed, some parts of our MRR2 cracked, a certain section leaked at our Court House, Putrajaya, some Mongolian beauty killed which has got to do with our submarines, even a concert which was held recently at Bukit Jalil had some troubled with electricity supply, etc.

I dare not to think how much of our money will be spent on this project. Even Honda pulled out from the race despite selling their cars well in countries all over the world. Our country may be making money for Proton but not so sure with other countries.

I am really concerned with all these money, our hard earned money goes to wastage and some people's pocket. Don't tell me about MACC. Useless and toothless organization !

Malaysia really BOLEH !!!

"The Malaysian government has gone on overdrive to promote 1Malaysia via billboards and song competitions.

Najib declined to disclose the amount that the public-private initiative will cost. He added however that the government’s investment will be via Proton." MI.

Therein lies the potential, like PKFZ, for another multi-billion $ whack on the M'sian Taxpayer!! Why hide what the deal is all about? What's being covered up?

You can bet your bottom $ that Proton will be forking out all the development and advertising cost and then eventually, the Taxpayer will come charging in to rescue them.

Recently, MAHB which had the rights to Sepang racing circuits and F1 sold it all back to the Govt after a major billion $ "re-structuring" exercise!!

Niamah!

Thanks for writing about this "syiok sendiri" attitude of our PM/gomen, which all right thinking Malaysians fully agreed with your comments.

While most of the F1 teams are contemplating jumping off the wagon, our stupid gomen wants to be in. Just like the maybank fiasco in Indonesia the gomen is run by 1/2 past 6 advisors.

Rakyat's 'blood Money' wasted on 'Syiok sendiri' projects which otherwise could be used to improve the life of all Malaysians.

Just when Najib could not articulate to teh rakyat what 1 Malaysia is, someone helped him (actually to ampu him) with the concept of 1 Malaysia racing team.

I suppose he knew his days are numbered. He need to have a legacy to be remembered by.

Mhathir had Proton, twin towers, Puterajaya.

Badawi had his corridors and Hadari.

So Najib need to realise his 1 Malaysia in the form of this racing car.

The F1 community must be happy to have the injection of money now that the likes of Hinda, Toyota BMW are pullin gout.

Proton definitely know something the Japanese and Germans did not know.

By the way, my friend used to work for a supplier to Proton during the design stage of Savvy. I was told Savvy was designed by the Koreans.

Any feat in the Malay Boleh history book.

Sure the F1 in Sepang is drawing the tourist to KL.

But does the tourist dollar ever reach the pocket of the kampung folks in the rural area?

Think about this when you see Najib, Tony Fernandes, Dr M's son and his cronies having gala dinner with the celebrities in posh hotels during the F1 celebration.

What does our Tourism Minister has to say about this?

They are using rakyat's money to syiok sendiri among the Ang-Moh!
Talk about Merdeka yet still sucking up and brwon-nosing to the ang-moh!

That's why we poor people can only syiok sendiri our way by Zooming Malaysia or Cuti-cuti Malaysia. ha Ha Ha!

Did you watch ESPN Sportscentre last nite?

Mika Hakinen was asked his opinion of 1 Malaysia racing team with Lotus.

His did not give a convincing answer to support the notion that is a wothwhile venture.

He is like saying to Proton: Keep Walking, you cannot run yet, let alone sprint in the name of Lotus.

Anonymous said...

During this economic crisis, it is a wonder why Malaysia want to get into the F1.
Strictly speaking, it is better for Malaysian Government to concentrate on its primary duty of governing the country. Please leave the thought of forming a F1 team to the private sector or car company.
Even big names like Honda, Toyota which have more related interest are getting out, yet we are jumping in ?
Where angels fear to threat, FOOLs jump in.

But then, if your objective is to fatten a group of cronies, who will be responsible for the team, Then I will say it is a fantastic idea. You can justify to use more tax payers’ money for your own ends. Cheer ! 1Malaysia !

You can see if the venture is successful (my foot!!!) the private companies will enjoy the profits but if it fails, then Govt will have to bail out using our hard earned tax money.
I say NO! How can we we tell the Govt and Najlis that we dont want this F1.
Maybe PR can start an immediate signature campaign to oppose this STUPID idea. Get right on to it now!!!

Collateral Damage said...

As someone who has followed F1 for decades, let me ask everyone why there has never been an F1 base outside of Europe. Even the Japanese have their F1 bases in Europe and only their engine departments are in Japan.

It is because all the expertise and parts manufacturers are in Europe, specifically in England. To base oneself so far away from the manufacturers is geographically too challenging especially in a sport like F1.

Granted, USF1, the other new entrant has based themselves in the US but at least there is a big support system over there.

Another thing is the appointment of Mike Gascoigne. He is not known as the "Rottweller" for nothing. Wait for explosive confrontations with his Malaysian masters.

amidst these hullabaloo, i'm under the impression that Najib stuck up his head into F1 because it has quite the same name as his 1Malaysia. whatever explanation he offered to justify his decisions were illogical and rubbish. perhaps he will find a way to incorporate 1Utama into his 1Malaysia next.

it was a wrong decision to venture into this costly F1. his talk about F1 car built in malaysia by malaysian bla bla was just a dream. probably he didnt think that to train a Malaysian F1 engineer requires at least 4 years of univ. education, perhaps another few years of specialized study or at least 5 years of experience before he could join the engineering team. at least 9 years! but i guess he would just hire some foreigners to do the job (as usual).

what about previous mega projects? sure, they gave us popularity. but it was superficial and not truly beneficial. KLIA was UNDERUTILIZED, KLCC was also UNDERUTILIZED (many office lots are empty due to high rent). PUTRAJAYA? hmph, their wetland is a white elephant.

truly, we are not ready for such high-tech high-investment when the public persistently complains about basic amenities.

It took 3 hours to cover 400 metres. And know what, the Boss of the authorised service centre ask me why I bought such a cheap quality car.

Don't know what the govt is harping about courting a partner for Proton. Najib even implied it would be "the same tie up as suggested with VW" but mind us all, tie up with VW was all talk, mere attempt to cloud the issue(no takers) as well as it being against the spirit of EU charter.

No European concern will get involve with Proton solely because Proton's business is one protected by vested interest that runs contrary to open competition.

The bedlam that binds the Euro Union is one that promotes fair trade and are anti protectionist. No one is going to touch Proton even with the longest of pole unless the wigs come up with some fancy creative language that says otherwise.

It is trying but have a g'weekend all out there.

Joining Formula 1 is glamorous but will not help to make Malaysia a high income developed country

By Dr Chen Man Hin, DAP life adviser

The other day PM Najib’s kitchen cabinet announced plans to make Malaysia a high income developed country. Two days later he announced Malaysia will become a F1 racing country to bring glory and prestige as a renowned automobile producer of world standards.

Proton is sucking up millions every year of taxpayers’ money to support the automobile industry, and now F1 will require spending a billion or more annually. It will increase the financial burden of the people.

Tun Mahathir supports the F1 initiative because it will bring publicity worth millions for Malaysia, as F1 races are splashed across the media. He forgets that it will also focus on the sorry state of the automobile industry headed by Proton.

Instead of sponsoring F1, PM Najib and former-PM Mahathir should pull up their sleeves and turn the automobile industry around to be as successful as the Thai automobile manufacturing. Thailand is now internationally known as the ‘Detroit of SE Asia’

Thailand is not chasing for F1 fame because it does not bring fortune.

The Thais do not have a national car to subsidise, like Malaysia. They take the road of liberalisation and invite international car makers to support their automobile programme.

PM Najib should take note that HONDA and BMW, world famous car makers have lost interest in F1 and have pulled out of the F1 racing grid.

He should also be aware that LOTUS F1 in its heydays in the nineties won 6 coveted F1 constructors title. But what good did Lotus bring to the British auto industry, which is in a sorry state? Its one time branded car makers had to be bailed out by US and European car makers.

It is doubtful that participation in F1 will help to develop the economy of the country and contribute to the making of a high income Malaysia.

We respectfully suggest that the two Prime Ministers should concentrate their energy to save the automobile industry liberalisation measures. Stop subsidising Proton and let there be free competition of all motor makers, which is the successful formula adopted by Thailand, the ‘Detroit of SE Asia’

Tony Fernandes thought he could weave his magic again from air to the F1 track.

He forgot his core competence is in 'low cost'.

F1 is 'high cost'.

I salute his courage. But I will be sorry for him when the venture fail, for it will.

There is a chinese saying, if your head is not big enough, dun wear a big hat....

This is a perfect example of the blind-sightedness of our govt. They rather to be spend billions Rm per year(yes billions; Ferrari, Mclaren and Honda spent Rm1.4-1.5 billion in 2008). Is Malaysia that rich to be dumping in billions into a sport that we are not even good in? Proton cars aren't the best at all. How many ppl have complained abt their bad gear box or the many many problem they have with their car. Lotus engine make not even be on the mark either. Why are we dumping in $$ in a venture we know it is not going to be long lasting? Worse thing is that, i read that this venture is for 2010. Are we even ready to get going??? there is only less than 4 months in 2009 and F1 season starts around Feb/Mar... so 6 months to get an F1 team running?? GILA

I am a big fan of F1....I do feel that Malaysia will make a fool of herself trying to get to the starting grid.

First race, we can only hope the car can finish all the laps, worse case, get off the starting grid

Lotus team will be related to Proton the funny part is....this co owner have no knowledge for engine that's over 1.6L... since Perdana's engine from Mitsubishi.

Everything is boleh here...maybe Tony will set the theme that 1Malaysia F1 team is a low cost team. NO more 5 stars hotel for driver.....all take Budget airline...stay at back packers hotel or tune hotel that need to pay extra for air con/ shampoo.

TO make things sound stupid...they want to put the HQ at Sepang while LOTUS core engineering team is at UK...so there will be a lot of money spend just to transfer those UK chap over? oh no they want to use Malaysia but unfortunately our leader think it is as simple as buy a pack of COKE from Tesco or 7-11. You need a lot of knowledge and experience to be an engineer for F1 since small mistake can kill.
