As long as the finger waving on Sunday matters eh?

Decent race. Quite blend in "Spa Standard", but quite a few actions here and there.

I was invited by Oris Swiss watches to visit the Belgian GP and Williams F1. Totally for free(Ok I had to go there by car , 3 hours driving)



Our Gold 1 Grandstand we were sitting at row 9. I was exactly below the 2nd 'Shell' L so to speak

Idiotic Greenpeace activists making their statements....

@ our hotel in Vaals (still NL south border with B and D) Macca from London, talked to the owner, nice guy :


Lambo:


The group from the UK :


----------

Spa
Wiliams paddock:



Pastor Maldonado and me. I speak Spanish too and had a nice conversation with him. He was a tad silent but when he heard Spanish instead of English he melted a bit


Champagne, Heineken, cute girls @ Williams, high quality food, a high tech bathroom what looked like Star Trek, only the robotic ass wiping was missing

Sir Frank...


Engineer Pat Symonds, I saw Patrick Head somewhere as well :


Some info @ the pits. No pics allowed ...only the cars...



Bottas' car (nice guy too)

I have some video footage of start & finish but first the pics

Nice view from our grandstand.

Lewis and Kimi were the most popular and in general Ferrari(by the way the crowd was shouting)




Fellow Dutchman Giedo van der Garde passing and in the upper right corner one of those Greenpeace guys:



Sorry for the crappy quality of some pics....

Cheers
Robin

Funny because Coulthard was commenting during a shot of the pits where Fernando was getting rid of his tear-off and throwing it into the air. He explained what it was, and mentioned that it would be 'left for someone else to clean up'. Yeah... Kimi's brake duct. Crappy.

When DC interviewed Vettel on the podium, vettel mentioned he heard booing and cheering at the same time.

I found out it was the crowd booing Greenpeace protesters and cheering when they got taken away. For a moment I thought vettel was cocking about the crowd booing him.

Actually they got the exposures they wanted. With their access to the podium and grandstand. They can easily interrupt the race if they wanted.

But that'll cross the line of upsetting paid fans as well. Their target was the title sponsor - Shell, not the paid fans. All they need was to send a message.

For that, i was glad that they didn't over done and stopped the race.
