It was fun day today. Nice weather although rather cold and windy. The warm jacket definitely came handy. I planned to watch the practice sessions from my seat at the grandstands but at the end I made the most of the Paddock Club pass. Pitlane walkabout, Mumm champagne, F1 simulator, good picture taking spot and some nice food – it was hard to walk away from that .
Thanks to being at the club I also had the chance to watch live (on TV) the press conference with Martin Whitmarsh, Ross Brawn, Christian Horner and Adam Parr. You can read some of the FOTA talk here and Williams talk here. And here is the complete transcript of the press conference.
And yes, there was also some on track action and yes, Nelson Piquet did spin off again . Friday times usually do not mean much but Red Bulls do look strong this weekend.
I will be back at the circuit tomorrow – you can follow my updates on Twitter (here) ! I may upload some more photos from today later on. Now it is time for some dinner and drinks.
