This weekend I was lucky enough to be given the loan of two GP2 Paddock Passes for the Formula 1 Grand Prix at Silverstone – apart from free entry to Silverstone these gave us amazing access to the GP2 pits, VIP areas & hospitality. This was my first time to an F1 event, the noise those cars make is unreal, you can physically feel your eardrums vibrating as the cars scream past.
Naturally I took a camera & got a few photos of the Silverstone F1 & GP2 and other stuff we saw on our wanderings….I won’t post many shots on here as I don’t want to scare off potential brides with lots of car photos (potential brides as in wedding photography clients not brides for myself, that would be a bit weird)…
As well as the actual F1 there were also vintage F1 car races, GP2, GP3 and Porsche, all pretty entertaining in their own right….
In the GP2 paddock as the vintage F1 cars made their way to the track for their practice rounds…it was very wet on Day 1!
Jenson Button…love the livery of the Vodaphone McLaren Mercedes, just beautiful….
In the GP2 pits with one of the cars between races – made sure I didn’t touch a thing!
Below…I think this is Michael Schumacher isn’t it?….
Below, Jenson Button & Lewis Hamilton in the same shot – this was a very lucky piece of timing!
…and this year’s British F1 winner Mark Webber….
