Let's see how this post ages:

ms, if the report was more about the drivers and teams and less about you, this would be an interesting topic.

Neither...

I have 'imaginary friends' who I claim to know, who still work there ...after the original firm operating there went bust.

I have been doing it ( PA) for four years..

Interesting, did you note VVP did not greet the podium team in the cool down room or award the winner's trophy?

I do not believe he attended

Sochi still has grid girls ...but FOM ( Formula one Management ) made sure the cameras focused on the kids that they insist replaced the grid girls

Did any one notice how HAM embraced the Matriuska in the cool down room? )

Was it just to ask people to stand for the national anthem or was there more? You should link it.

It’s nice getting a little closer to the action, especially if you’re a real fan. Just out of interest, did you stand for the national anthem?  :coffeeread:

Well, that's a nice way to get free entry :-)
Shame young Daniel got damaged 4th corner, but still an interesting race.
That Seb deserves all he gets. Young Charles is starting to understand how Mark Weber felt about being Seb's "team mate"

If you have SKY download any of the races 15 , 10 or five mins before the National anthem .. 57 different announcements - from ticket retention, security, cancellation of sessions - not used, good night, announcing concerts, etc.,

1/ You KNOW I'm a fan....  You learnt what a 'Cool Down' room was from me ;)

2/ I stand for all National Anthems at sporting events .. I'm muscial and like the Russian (Former Soviet Union) Anthem .. it is one of the better ones ..

I like the  UK / US / NL / IT / JP one's ..and of course
