In the end it's just about "perspective and getting what we want, but we're not that different.

Not the most expensive, but carefully picked out for the view I want. Best thing on grandstand over GA is the guarantee that you'll have the view you want and you don't have to get up at the crack of dawn to secure it. I was surrounded by enthusiast both on GA and grandstand seats. I take a radio and have earphones tuned to the Silverstone station and make sure a big screen is near. And the biggest winner over watching on tele........ATMOSPHERE! ATMOSPHERE! ATMOSPHERE!


Same, did GA first couple of times and had to be heading over to the circuit about 5am to get a spot. Luffield wasn't bad, could see them coming up from bridge and then round to the back end of the main stright and pit entrance. At silverstone this year I don't think it would matter where you were but radio definitely helps.
To use my phone in the car I deleted all my German contacts, it's now Hans free.

I hope it was a ring on her finger, and not a finger in his ring.

Bought her passport? Dang I thought that should be her daddy's job.
Breaking News: Lewis Hamilton has officially overtaken The Fonz in race wins. With 88 races less. Lol (Without a specially built blown diffuser, illegal front wing, preferential treatment)
