Greetings from Qantas lounge at SYD airport

I only have a little bit of time now, I am sure I will have better time in Auckland, and can return back to 'normal operations' here at the Nokia Madness Monitoring and Reporting Station haha..

Seriously, guys, thanks! I thought you'd like it and yes, most of the pics here were taken with the Nokia E7 which has an 8mp camera (all live racing pictures for example) but several pics were taken on other 'proper' digital cameras and other cameraphones. Note all pictures have been shrunk in quality to fit the blog obviously. You cannot imagine my screen saver parade of photos... I am still smiling like a kid at christmas..

I'll do regular blogging from Auckland and return here with comments too.

007 :-)


with pleasure, Tomi.
we are happy you happy!.

see you and have a safe flights.


Tomi, your a genious when it comes to mobile and new media, but that has to be the worst tie EVER.

otherwise Finns are the best race-drivers in the world, cheers.


Great Post Tomi for a change!

OK, I have to admit that's pretty impressive, and I'm jealous...

Quite funny we both started off with the JPS Lotus (Like a lot of people I'd imagine), although for me it was Elio de Angelis, and Ayrton Senna that stood out as drivers...

Personally I'm looking forward to MotoGP reaching Britain again for the Moto3 and Moto2 classes..

I'm a girl and I'm extremely jealous!! And it was Rosberg's first win and all the excitement of watching it live!! I wiiiish!


Very Envious of your experience! F1 was the reason I got into engineering :) It was a great race to watch on TV, must have been spectacular live. Thanks for sharing the photos of life in the fast lane!


As Nokia published its Q1 results today, I think Tomi is somewhere in Fiji or in Bora Bora, to prevent himself from a deep heartache.

Please calm down Tomi, spend as much time with your family at the beach, relax, and then come back here.

Thank you to everybody posting comments. I know many in telecoms/tech are also Formula 1 fans, and thought you might enjoy this little interlude. I am posting this comment now Monday 23rd literally a week after the Shanghai GP and am still wearing a massive grin and keep reliving moments from that weekend. For someone whose been a fan of F1 for 40 years, that was one of the best memories of my life. And thank you to Kaspersky Lab and Scuderia Ferrari for making it possible.

PS I have a little bit more to add, the cool video I shot. I have to go upload it to YouTube and post the link here. But I am so behind on all of my Twittering and blogging and other 'real work' that we'll wait with the video for a little while..
