A Saturday in Budapest


It's been a while since we last gave you an opportunity to take a look behind the curtains. So for the last post before the summer break we thought you might like to follow us from the paddock to the pitlane. Buckle up!

We arrived in the pits to find the place deserted: it was as though someone had called a holiday and forgotten to tell us.

In fact they were just cleaning up after the flooding caused by the overnight storms before going out the back to watch the F1 session: our paddock is above turn two, and you can learn a lot about the cars from there. Rodolfo was one of the drivers taking advantage of the view.

A quick lunch and time to watch F1 qualy before the action starts.

Given the steep hill between our paddock and the pitlane, the guys are allowed to drive around: it means we've all got to be a bit careful about where we walk.

Up in the pitlane there was some inspiration for the guys: here's our last champion's new car.

Some last minute preparation and then time for the grid.

Waiting for GP3 to clear the paddock.

A driver's work is never done. Waiting for the press conference.
