Recalling the event, the actress says from Singapore, "It was fantastic! The rush of adrenalin and the palpable energy was awesome! I had gone to attend the event on the invitation of Bernie Ecclestone (CEO, Formula One Management) Though Singapore is a big hub for Asians, I was invited through Britain (Shilpa had won the TV show Big Brother last year) not India though I cheered for Force India team."
Shilpa wore a French designer outfit, which she bought in Miami, when she was there for I had shot there for Dostana. Though Shilpa's favourite is Lewis Hamilton, it was Spanish driver Fernando Alonso who won the game. Shilpa says, "It's not important who won. I stood there like a fan watching the likes of Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton start the race right in front of me. I couldn't get to meet them as just before take off they don't meet people but concentrate on the run. I was excited just watching them up close and personal."
The actress who loves fast cars adds, "I am petrified of driving. However I might risk it on the racetrack. It's a heady feeling to drive a powerful car with high speed." After the finals on Sunday night, Shilpa went on a shopping spree with boyfriend Raj Kundra and her agent. "I have just bought lots of clothes, shoes and bags. I love shopping and can shop anywhere. It was great to have Raj with me."
