    Welcome, are you one of the Dutch who go camping on top of the hill? If so, we may have met. Do you go to any of the other races?

    No I had rented a house via airbnb because my brother and I used the weekend to see some WWII stuff as well. I've been to Austria in 2001, which was pretty great.

    Spa was a bit of a deception for me. The sound was really dissapointing, as it had been a while since I visited a formula 1 race. And it looked to me like the organisers wanted to extract the most out of the weekend by selling an unlimited amount of bronze tickets to Max fans. It was just too busy. We did find a good spot on the hill at the Kemmel straight, but I saw some people sitting in the bushes where all they could see was the big TV screen.
    Being stuck for almost 4 hours in the parking after the race didn't help either.
    Spa is great when you camp at the track and don't have to be home on sunday evening. ;)

    Welcome MartijnK. You'll find us a friendly bunch on the whole. I think there may be a few other Dutch F1 fans lurking on here somewhere (whatever happened to my pal Josh?).

    Having witnessed that great Hakkenien pass first hand does that make him one of your favourite drivers? There was a recent discussion on here as to whether Hakkenien was as good as people said he was.

    He had a great car in that era no doubt. Good racer too, but I don't rate him as high as a Schumacher or Hamilton. Better than Rosberg though for sure. (Hope I don't offend anyone ;) )

    Welcome MartijnK. You can ignore most of what I post ;) Hey, we could have fun revisiting putting drivers into different leagues. That's always a fun game on an F1 forum :snigger:

    Well, hello! I'm from South America, following F1 since I have mind... in fact, since mid-1987.
    My first childhood hero was Nigel Mansell, then didn't have a proper hero after him in F1 world.

    I'm proud of Jose Maria Lopez, and what did in motorsport, and hope one day he could be rewarded with, at least, an opportunity to start and complete a single F1 race, some in the manner Markus Winkelhock did in 2007.

    Hope to have a great time in this forum!

    A "pechito" López fan? It's been a while since I've run into one. Sweet Avatar Mekola. Welcome!

    Thanks. I'd been part of Lopez fanbase from 2004 to 2009. Learnt some things about how to support a racing driver.
    Even have a WTCC 1/32 plastic model with the box dedicated and signed by him, one of my valuable miniatures...
    We're like the Australians with their drivers, we the Lopez supporters. Have our presences everywhere...

    The avatar is product about the first F1 stories heard from my elder brother, when he was a F1 follower...
