It. Was. AMAZING. Simply amazing.
Yeah, the prices were way up there, but me and my dad didn't mind all that much. We actually got our tickets for general admission for $50 less a person, so instead of $338 for the both of us, it was $238. I call that a win.
Friday, we went out for practice, and immediately I bought my hat, which was $40. A sports hat is about $50 (give or take like, $10 max), so that was easy. However, remember how I wanted to get a shirt? Yeah, the shirt was $90, but I got one! Both my hat and shirt are Williams, cause that's my favorite race team (I'm a big Bottas fan). It was the best $130 I've spent in a while. Yes, I've spent $130 in one in the past before, I just don't remember when (exactly). We had great seats, since, well, we can sit wherever we chose to sit. I initially decided to sit at turn 2, and I gotta say, it was a pretty damn good spot; you could see Turns 16-18, a little bit of what I like to call the Slalom Course (turns 3-8 is basically Maggots and Becketts from Silverstone, but I can't call it that, cause the name's taken. I then wanted to call it American Maggots and Becketts, but that sounded really bad to me, so Slalom Course it is!) After Practice 1, we got a bite to eat, then decided to sit at Turn 19. It was...okay at best.
Nothing happened on Saturday, we didn't go. I decided that only seeing the F1 cars on the track for a combined total of maybe two hours wasn't the best day to be out.
Sunday, though, was a blast. It was race day! Nothing but races, races, races. Well, there was really only two races, the Ferrari Challenge race was 10 laps behind the safety car. The Porsche race, though had no safety car, and was really good. Less than an hour of waiting later, the Drivers' Parade. Waved at just about everybody, was really awesome. Had some shenanigans between the two Mercedes drivers, but nothing major (it was about which vintage car did they like more, more funny than anything, really.) At about 5 past 2, the race began! End result, Mercedes 1-2 (with how they're running, what else is new?), but my team, Williams, got a 4-5! That's 22 points. If Mercedes gets a 1-2 in Brazil this coming Sunday, they'll make history by scoring the most points in the constructors' championship history by one point.
