British Grand Prix 2015

British Grand Prix 2015
Motorsport, it is in the blood of the nation and is one in which the Brits tend to excel at. Today is my birthday and what a way to kick off the start of my birthday than to write about one of my favourite things, that being F1. This year I found myself very lucky in that I was able to attend the qualifying day at the British Grand Prix which is held at Silverstone in Northampton. A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about F1 and in doing so I was kindly provided with two tickets to attend the Saturday event. This year marks the tenth year in which I have being watching F1 so it was fantastic to be able to finally attend a race weekend, one year I will make it to an actual race day as despite not being able to see a lot (the cars are super quick) the atmosphere and experience will make it all worth it.
British Grand Prix 2015 Having never been to any form of Grand Prix weekend I wasn't quite sure what to expect, however there was a lot more to do and see than I had expected. There was entertainment from the Red Arrows and their fantastic display which for me was incredible to see. I hadn't seen the Red Arrows for quite a few years so it was really great to see them in action. There were also races from both GP2, GP3 which are feeder series for F1 as well as the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.

Walking around the jam packed venue there was countless food vendors which sold a variety of different foods. There was also wine and beer stalls, pic n mix stalls and more than one ice cream truck; needless to say I headed straight in their direction for my ice cream and strawberry sauce! I also stopped off at one of the Ferrari team merchandise stalls where I may have come away with my very own Ferrari hat which of course had number 7 on it; I'll forever be a Kimi Raikkonen supporter. Team merchandise tends to be super expensive so I only picked up the one thing, although I wouldn't have minded a Red Bull top as they are really nice.British Grand Prix 2015 British Grand Prix 2015
Overall I had such a lovely day, the weather was beautiful and the atmosphere was great! Everyone was in high spirits and looking forward to a great race weekend; it was really nice to be surrounded by fellow F1 fans.

Have you ever been to F1 weekend?

The tickets for this event were kindly provided to me for writing a post about F1 in June. There was no requirement for me to write about the event at a later date however I really wanted to share with you my day out to Silverstone as it was something I really enjoyed.
