Hope you both have lovely weather again this year, either of you going to any other races?

You think you couldn't believe it? As soon as RC said it was her, I had this image of a million facepalms in my head. It's a big regret lol. This time however, I'll be on the lookout if I'm sitting where I was or near there for this year.

I'm not planning any this year apart from Silverstone but I am saving up for a possible race in Spa. That's my intention for my first aboard GP

It's so weird, funny and depressing that you were so close yet so far lol.

I thought you two were messing around with us all at first winding us up. You should both go with t-shirts of each other haha that way you can't miss one another.


To be honest , the performance I was making when Lewis came round was hard to miss! I guess the problem was not knowing the performer was me :hehe: more spectacular flag needed!

Maybe Liam did see you and subconsciously avoid the crazy Hamilton fan xD (isn't Liam a Ferrari fan?)

I can just picture you with a massive flag blocking out the TV camera lol

I can't imagine how joyous you were when he won xD

Oh I was going mental! My horn ran out of gas! Yes Liam is a Ferrari fan, and I saw him, the ferrari fan, but didn't know it was Liam. I think Liam likes Lewis a bit too, I was very considerate with my flags, they were fastened to the back of the grandstand so didn't block anyone's view but Lewis would see them, then see me, then wave, it worked. :thumbup: :D

The crush (right?) you have on Lewis is adorable and cute.

You reminded me I need to buy one of those horns to scare people with.

Crush. Not sure if I'd call it a crush , because it all comes about from his driving. But whatever it is ..... ...it's pretty intense!

Trawling around for snippets of news and photos.
Planning Silverstone and Monza
Thinking about banners.
Participating with some fans on Twitter with a present for Mercedes when they reach 1 million followers.
Enjoying a lot how the less able engine makers are conducting themselves :twisted:
Still on a high really from last season :jump:

I should have mentioned I could possibly even go to Malaysian, Chinese, Abu Dhabi or Bahrain GP on my way to Australia when I do go out for a break as any four locations can be stop-off points.

I'm skipping Msia this year. Been to a race each in the V10, V8, and now V6 era....and now it seems we'd be getting another new engine in 2017 so that might be my next race.
