Lewis vs Charles please :)

The weather is looking quite nice at this point, a few showers on Friday, gentle breeze, 20-23 degrees

According to AMuS Mercedes should have some new bits here, preceding a major upgrade package for Germany.

I’m after a bit of advice.

I’m taking my 10 year old for the first time. Where would folks on here think would be best for us to park out backsides so he can see with a general admission (none grandstand) ticket?

Might that be the cooling they forgot to include in their perfect car desing :roll: ?

Mercedes let someone else win one race, they would have preferred Ferrari but were fine with RB. I wouldn't expect anything similar in Silverstone.

Any particular reason why this particular thread came a day earlier than usual? I'm not complaining though :)

With the current weather forecast I expect a return to schedule as Merc wont have the cooling issues.

We haven't had a real rain-affected race since Singapore 2017 and a fully wet race since Brazil 2016. I hope Silverstone breaks the duck. I hope Michael Masi would have as much tolerance as the late Charlie Whiting (R.I.P) had for wet races.

Yes it's a proper F1 racetrack isn't it (unlike anywhere in London)

Hi there,

I've had the fortune of going to Silverstone 3 times, once working, once in GA and once in a grandstand. For GA I'd reccomend Stowe corner, can see the cars coming up from hanger straight and some good action into Stowe corner. There's a large patch of grass there with good views of the tracks, one of the large screens and close to stuff like toilets and food. Plus it's not so close to the track that the little guys ears might suffer.

Thank you! I'm attending with GA tickets and it's my first ever GP

Thanks Stowe corner it is =D> Now does anyone have a padded room or some rope to stop him hurting himself whilst he’s bouncing off the frigging walls?

Take something along with you, the little fella can stand on, that puts him head and shoulders above your height otherwise he’ll see nothing!
