What did you do in the evenings? Much going on in the campsite you stayed at?

Chatted with friends. Wasn't much time; usually just between around 7pm and 10/11pm was what we talked. Played cards, ate burgers the first two nights. Nothing overly exciting! Except for the man with his annoyingly loud music!

No, I didn't take any pictures with drivers as I thought it'd look unprofessional. I could have got one with Checo but he looked like he was a bit tired. I'm not hugely bothered :) In the future I might try, but I wanted to look like I wasn't just an overenthusiastic fan!

I also just had my phone and it has like a 2-3 second delay after you press 'capture', so I thought if I tried, or got someone else to try, it might not work and I didn't want to risk it :lol: I can't even find any pictures of me in the paddock that professional photographers took!

I might have appeared on RAI, RTL & Antena 3 but I don't have any clips :p

But it's nice to remember your first moment with some pictures. Drivers came to me and asked me for photos, I couldn't say no :p

You must do it in your 2nd attempt :)

Drivers came to you? :lol:

I have plenty of pictures that I took, just none of me :) I have about 250 photos of the weekend :lol: I have the memories in my head, written down. I know that I saw pretty much all of them and chatted to Sergio. A picture would have been nice, but it just didn't feel right.

It's like I'm big on wanting autographs, I just don't hugely see the point. In the future though, I will try and get photos with drivers. But for my first time, I wanted to be professional :thumbsup:

So you told me you want to be professional :p ?
Buzzing after my one-one-one interview with Sergio Perez, I headed back to the media centre and then a brief moment in the café to watch a bit of historic F1 action. I’d stopped off at Ferrari, but left slightly horrified after discovering that they didn’t do hot chocolate. How can you not do hot chocolate? Sacrilege…

Was your campsite very noisy? I read Alonso and Schumacher were staying in motorhomes at the circuit but both left and checked into hotels as the nearby campsites were too loud for them. :lol:

The music was loud but only because we're separated by a few sheets. 50m away it was quiet.
