I have just arrived at home from the pit lane walk.
Weather: it was drizzling at times and there were lots of clouds with around 26-27 degrees. Better weather is predicted for the weekend. If the weather returnes which we have had all through the summer so far,we will have around 32-35 degrees with lots of sunshines.
I took lots of pictures, but because of the incredible crowd it was almost impossible to take high-quality photos. Later I will upload some of them.
Some pieces of information:
-Sebastian was probably the most friendly man this year again. He climed the corridor to go to us to give some extra signatures.
-Felipe was in a very good mood, he dropped lots of autogramm cards into the crowd.
-Fernando shook hands with Jenson and Lewis when he sat down to the table.
-Ferrari kept two separate meetings in the box, one for the Fernando's engineers and one for Felipe's.
-Felipe had a seat-position test, after that he was chatting with Rob.
-Hirohide Hamashima seems to be very precise and hard-working, he checked every single (!!!!) rubber.
-Ferrari had extra tyres for pit-stop practices
-McLaren were working very hard on fine-tuning the tyre-camber settings and ride-height
-Red Bull and Mercedes were practicing the pit-stops very intensively.
-Red Bull were very-very constant at their pit stop simulations, the change of the four tyres were finished almost at the same time. They practiced the nose cone-change, as well
-Some teams, including Ferrari, Marussia, Caterham and Williams had two types of front wings
-Ferrari had two pieces of the old front wing and two of the new which have been already tested in Valencia, Silverstone and Hockenheim.
-I bet Ferrari will give the new wing a try and opt for it.
-the Ferrari-mechanics are very friendly, some of them talked to us and let Felipe write a signature for a girl:)
-the track surface is very smooth and very precisely cleaned up, I am sure there won't take too much time to rubber the track in which was typical for the Hungaroring for the past
-despite Kubica's absence there were so many Polish fans on the track. Maybe they support Kuba Germaziak in the Porsche SuperCup.
