Fantastic day at Silverstone courtesy of Hilton Hotels & Resorts and McLaren F1. Different viewing / photo opportunities than previously documented race weekends, with various pics to follow - including from within operational McLaren pit garage.
In the meantime, first random shot out of the bag is Red Bull's Daniel Ricardo, flat out on high fuel load through the fast Turn 1, lighting up the side of his floor and the tarmac behind with sparks from grounding the forward titanium skid plate

The Barcelona trip wasn't entirely about 200mph lumps of carbon fibre and people in fireproof race suits. There are a fair few local Monk Parakeets nesting in the crowns of palm trees. Most birds take nesting materials to the tree. This one appeared to be trying to take the tree to the nest!! ... See MoreSee Less

Almost done with sifting through the results of the Barcelona trip. Lewis Hamilton's 2.3 second pit stop by the Mercedes AMG Petronas team.
I am expecting the same degree of enthusiasm and military precision when I next take my car in for service at the local Mercedes dealership!!
