I assume someone has made a bingo-card of phrases we'll hear this weekend. "Home of F1", "nowhere else like Silverstone" etc.

Stuck on the auld Netflix and saw Dave Letterman's interview with Lewis. Kinda a good watch. Good to see Lewis relaxed and not all corporate.

Heading to the race this weekend. Cant wait. One of the lads ordered a crate of Rich Energy to keep us going.

Does anyone know if they take cards at Silverstone? In the event village and at the track. Or should we bring cash? I'd prefer to use cards if possible but don't want to be caught out without money.

Alpha are the only ones that have said they are bringing an update package to Silverstone.

Williams did run 2 different Aero packs on Russell and Kubica car in Austria , so I assume given the difference between the 2 cars showed it was a step in the right direction and both will use the same at Silverstone.

I suppose we are back to normal altitude so Merc's will be back on form . Not sure what car this track suits it would be good if Honda can stay in the mix . It would be better if Mclaren could just about touch that pace as well as they have made good steps forward this year.

That's some coincidence that the 1,007 race lands on the British Grand Prix.

It's Aston Martin that's putting the 007 logo there.

Possible rain on Saturday between 1pm and 3pm, but that's just a Google weather forecast. Let's look forward to something interesting on track.

I went to Silverstone in 2011. One of the best weekends of my life. Camped at the track for it....In the quiet/family camp site of course

Pretty sure everywhere takes card now so you will be grand.

Enjoy!

Watching FP3 and Romain Grojean just spun his car coming out of the pits and broke his front wing so there is a VSC at the moment.

Just heard that the pit man that is supposed to give Lewis the thumbs up to go out had a tumble into the pit lane and had to jump up before Lewis drove over him. Did not see it on the TV but they then seemingly had to push him back and let him go again. Imagine if that happened in a race I would Lewis or any driver would be annoyed about it as long was no one was hurt of course.
