Nice pics Stonemonkey. I have lots of pictures of sky, having missed the red arrows, and lots of pictures of empty track having missed the racing cars. Then the battery ran out so I missed all the actual GP and the after party :( so thanks for that Lewis one. I'll save it :cloud9: When I sort through mine I'll post some if there's any worth posting.

Borrowed a friends iPhone to submit picks to the pool and saw Pm with phone number. So hey ho! And Stonemonkey recognised the customised Mercedes t shirt :hehe: not shown in the picture because it had become too hot at that point so had been removed. And I now have a proper Mercedes t shirt, a nice one :)

:hehe: Good times. :thumbup:

I hope you enjoyed the race, despite the tyre issues. It was still quite an exciting Grand Prix. :)

Racechick was easy to spot with her customised shirt but i think she was a bit surprised by that.
Fantastic weekend all round even with the tyre fiasco.

Stonemonkey and RC, you guys had a great GP for 2013... I don't know if you got to walk the circuit post race but I would have kept my eyes peeled for some tire shreds... this was one of those races that you'll be able to say remember Silverstone that year when all the tires were blowing up. Well here's one of those shreds. :thumbup:
