And the crowd at the end :cloud9: when Lewis came round on his parade lap including me jumping round like a loony with a horn

It was like that where we were when Lewis won, mental! Everyone just went crazy. Magic moment. Nice to have that on video.


gave the girlfriend my phone cos i knew id be jumping about :P :thumbup:



I had to hand the camera over when Lewis came by on the parade lap. Too busy dancing about to get his attention.

Did you get a thumb this time?


Pretty sure so, and a wave. I was waving my Tshirt dress in the air with a Union Jack bikini top on and chequered flag tights, right at the top of the isle steps. Picture is somewhat too embarrassing to post, but this was me before the top came off.

And here is. Lewis waving back :D

Ok, now we want the pic after :hehe: :twisted:

And they get frigging hot in the sun :rolleyes:


We are British. We have to have a certain level of decorum. Even at an F1 weekend. I mean, bleachers? Can you imagine? The anarchy that would ensue?. :yikes:
