So it was a huge relief to spend 5 glorious days in the Ardennes camping with hundreds of fellow enthusiasts. I got to spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the track getting wet and cold but watching some great racing. And then in the evenings I got to spend time pouring cheap tasty beer down my throat and talking to fans from all around the world about what we had been watching. We got to talk about the financial situatin of Williams, the ups and downs of KERS, and the good and bad sides of Bernie. I talked to people from Belgium, England, Scotland, Italy, Holland and Germany. The racing at the track was fantastic but the time spent with fellow fans in the stands, campsites and bars made the whole weekend complete and fantastic.
Although I can't remember who said it because I was too drunk, Formula 1 is a great sport where supporters of all teams can come together and appreciate the race for the race. In any other sport so many supporters of different teams in one place could only lead to a fight. But in Formula 1 it ends up being a party. And Spa was a great party. I wish I could head back every year.
