My advice is to walk the track if you're there on the Friday/Saturday.
I can't believe in over 20 years of F1 watching I've never been to a race. I always regretted not seeing Schumi live in his first career, so I'm really happy to get this second chance. This must surely be among the last chances to watch him race.
Any recomendations for a Silverstone newbie? We have general access tickets.
I'll be seriously pissed if Michael crashes out on the first lap.
Otherwise, get to Becketts, that will blow your mind if you can get the right place. I've been at Woodcote, Bridge & Stowe when I went - last time was in 2007 before I moved to the USA- and they're all good places, but back in 91 I went to testing, and we stood for a while at Copse and Bridge..... OMG!
I seem to recall that qualifying had "open" seating at Stowe, but there used to be a walkway up from the entrance at Club so you popped out standing right next to The Vale, see them drop 4 gears, and then boot it out of Club and hear the changes... awesome
