“The people here are so friendly and my wife and I are having a blast here,” he said.

“It has been a while since I have been to a circuit to watch a race and I am glad to be here.
“When I was working with McLaren about 10 years ago, things used to be so different.
“The technology is constantly changing and upgrading,” he said when met at the Sepang International Circuit yesterday.
Moses said he used to be an engineer and the science and technology that goes into these cars was amazing.
“I have worked as an engineer in the aerospace industry and I know just how much of work goes into these cars,” he said.
