    A couple of weeks ago I went to Silverstone to watch the Formula 1, thought I'd share my pictures and a couple of vids I took with y'all.

    It was a great weekend, the GP2 races before the F1 were particularly exciting and the Porsche supercup cars were having a good go at eachother so that was fun!

    I'll add a few more videos as I finish editing them.

    Enjoy :)

    I've got a buddy who used to race his Porsche up in Maryland...he competed in the Junior Nationals. When he turned 18, he stopped competing because he decided he'd rather win first place against a bunch of kids then try to go toe-to-toe with the adults. :lol

    These are GP2 cars, smaller and less powerful than the F1 cars, but just as nippy. F1 teams will usually look for their next drivers in the GP2 series.

    Ex-F1 driver Mika Hakkinen's DTM racer, very different to a normal road car, the chassis is totally changed and the engine swapped over to a 500bhp+ V8
    nice :p

    And Kimi Raikonnen's car from the same stand

    If you ever get a chance to go and see the F1 do take it, the noise alone is something to behold :)
