Bernie v Seb
I saw Seb come out of the Ferrari motorhome and all of a sudden out popped Bernie Ecclestone from his motorhome and he grabbed Vettel. I’d read the stories about Vettel having a bit of a go at Formula One and I just managed to hear the conversation and Seb said something along the lines of “it’s just what I said in a meeting and someone made it more than what it is”. Bernie seemed a bit aggravated and had his arms in the air, it was very interesting. They spoke for about a minute and Seb went to wonder off but they continued on chatting. More photographers turned up, which ruined my exclusive a bit, but I was able to get right in there close from two angles and listen in a bit to what they were saying. It was a nice set of pictures and it was good to get the Wing in the background to show it was at Silverstone.

When I was watching this unfold, I thought it was a totally illegal overtaking move, but I didn’t realise the safety car line, from which they are allowed to race, is on that straight. I just kept my finger on the button anyway because it was a good moment and the crowd were going mental behind us. Of course it shuffled Hamilton down the pack because he had to cut the corner and then fell behind Valtteri Bottas. We needed the two Williamses in front, because without that we wouldn’t have had as exciting a race. I’m sure the fans would have cheered Lewis in the end, but it was nice to see a bit of genuine racing at the front before the pit stops unfolded and Hamilton got back ahead. The only thing you can’t see here is the grandstand behind, which was empty. It was the only part of the track where that was the case and it’s because it’s the Paddock Club grandstand. The guests don’t go and sit there because they have all their food and hospitality in the Wing overlooking the pit straight and the pit lane, so why would you? It’s a shame because the whole track was full of 140,000 people and you’ve got two or three grandstands in a good place sitting empty.
