Schumacher crashes out

Sun 25th September 2011

Half way through the race Schumacher flew around turn 7 and into the back of Perez. He lost control, his Mercades getting launched into the air, colliding into the barrier on turn 8, right in front of us!

The crash happened right in front of us leaving bits of car all over the track. The medical car was on the scene in less than a minute to check if Schumacher was okay. What a mess! Cool though! :)

The first time I’ve ever witnessed an F1 crash and it was awesome. Thankfully Schumacher walked away unharmed!

 

Hamilton vs Massa

Sun 25th September 2011

Hamilton decided to spice the first half of the race up by running into Massa on one of our corners. A piece Hamilton’s front wing flew across the track.

Here’s what happens when Hamilton get’s a little excited behind Massa. Broken front wing and a drive through penalty for Hamilton and a puncture for Massa.

I think it was more of a driving incident myself but I may be a little biased!

Edge of our seats

The race was about to start and don’t we look excited? I am not sure what the woman in the background is doing though…

I really like this photo. Not only for the two of us, but also for the amazing face the lady is pulling in the background. When I look at herface I just imagine her making a sound like meeehhhhhhhh!

Maybe she was a little too excited.

The driver’s parade

Sun 25th September 2011

Before the race, each of the drivers do one lap of the track in a swanky, retro car waving at the crowd.  Go Jenson, go Lewis!

I hate the catch fencing! It just gets in the way! Where’s my official FIA Photography pass when I need it?

Claire says...

We were within shouting distance of the drivers and Lewis even pointed and smiled at a Union flag right next to us.

 

Ready, steady, go!

Ah, the fun you can have with printed cardboard cut outs. Go Matt, go!

Matt says...

Hmmm that’s a very odd face I’m pulling. I think I’m having fun, or maybe I’ve just seen a ghost. Who knows?
