Silverstone, Day 1: F1 Second Practice Session

We watched the second F1 practice session from the Woodcote B stand. We were sat almost directly opposite the line marking the start of the pit lane speed limit but could see almost from the exit to Bridge through Priory, Luffield and Woodcote right down the pit straight to the entry to Copse.

Button did his best to entertain the crowds all the way through the session. Every time he returned to the pit lane he would slow right down early in the pit lane and then race the engine and brake hard again for the speed limit -- this was very loud!

The photo shows Button taking the chequered flag at the end of the session. Such a shame that he didn't get to do the same at the end of the race on Sunday.

I also like to see F1 race but sometime it looks quite risky to me because in that danger of life always there.
