Best place to sit at Silverstone? As far away from the air horn blowing Ferrari fans as possible, at one race I ended up deaf in one ear and it wasn't because of the cars.
To use my phone in the car I deleted all my German contacts, it's now Hans free.

Somewhere on the grid would be cool, I would not even mind if it was pole position lol.

I always like Luffields (spl)

I haven't gone to live races but I really like go to one maybe Canadian Grand Prix.

I think the best seat at Silverstone would at the third sector which is very challenging short sector and good photo opportunity.

Is F1 allowing spectators to take photographs during races (with no flash)?
