On the virgin train headed to the race. Should be a good one today. Can't wait to see the group round Luffield toward me. I'll be filming it!

Holy crap! Great race. Very exciting after the last snooze-fest. Alonso ran a great race. Pit crews sucked ass today. MSC was a blast to watch as usual

Bad luck for Button, and Vettel both got caught by poor pit stops. Nonetheless, still a good day for RBR and SV, now an 80 points ahead of MW on championship. And RBR is leading 110 points in constructors championship.

Great drive from Hamilton and Alonso, great overtaking, decent fights between them. The last move between LH and Massa could bring a bit discussion and a possible investigation from the stewards.

Sadly we couldn't see too much fight between Vettel and Webber, as the Aussie finally brought the fight personally to the Championship leader. Unfortunately there wasn't enough lap remaining and Christian Horner HAD TO MAKE a sensible decision. As Eddie Jordan said, RB will look like idiots if Webber crash out with Vettel and hand the points to McLaren and Ferrari.

Wowowow! What a race! So much action! I think I picked the perfect race to attend. I got a little taste of everything! I have a bunch of good photos and video I can't wait to share, but I fucked up and accidentally deleted some of the better videos. Some great action down in Luffield! Next time, I think Becketts is the place to be.

Also, it was just simply insane to watch Alonso do a very Vettel-like drive after he gained the lead. He was flying noticeably faster than everyone else. It was great to see him drive wide open.

Tough break for Button. By in large, the crowd was very much in favor of Jensen and it was a big crowd killer when he went out. When Lewis was passed, guy I was sitting next to screamed "oh what a bunch of typical shit Lewis", to which a lot of people had a laugh about around us.

But the greatest thing for me was just hearing the sound of those machines lap after lap. It's intoxicating. I can't wait to attend another GP, although probably not until next year.

Watching BBC Red Button Forum, heated discussion about Christian Horner's decision to tell Webber to hold position. And especially Mark Webber was furious and bad mouthing the team again.

Surprised for a brand new facility, the pit lane is so narrow like Monaco.
For Kobayashi's anti-stall pit release, he got no where to go but run over the air gun. They build a green field between the pit wall and pit lane, but just mere single lane for the pit lane itself like Monaco.
