Testing, testing!

Had a gleaming day at Silverstone – day 3 of F1 testing. Awesome!

Kimi and Ferrari were fantastic!

Some interesting machinery in the car park as well: e.g. Ferrari 430, a beautiful 328GTS, Aston Martin Zagato (pity about the green metallic, dude) and a Porsche GT3.

Minor flies in ointment: too many restrictions on where we could spectate from, the price of entry (!) and that bloody catch fencing. Even if I had a decent camera the fencing has made getting decent pictures a thing of the past. Still, an excellent day all round.

Not a good start to the season!

Dunno what happened to Ferrari.  2 retirements due to engine problems and they were off the McLaren pace anyway. And the Hamilton media-robot won. Not a good day. However, McLaren didn’t have it all their own way – Heidfeld: P2.

Also a disappointing day for our local boy, Ant, after the uncertainty of whether the team would make it to Australia at all. Better luck at Malaysia next weekend!
