D he GP England falls into the final phase of the European Football Championship . We will only see excerpts from the semi-finals and the final. Michael Schmidt and I will travel from Stuttgart Airport to London Heathrow on Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. Our plane first does a lap of honor on the ground. On the way to the runway, the brakes got too hot, which is why the pilot still has to do a cooling lap. It has a bit of Formula 1 flair. In the premier class, the drivers allow the material, especially the sensitive tires, to recover from time to time.Always the delicious Crispy Duck, which we distort on two out of five evenings.
Williams mechanics buck
What else moves me at Silverstone? My little skirmish with the Williams mechanics, who find it angry that I photograph the rear of the FW38. “No photos of the diffuser,” one of the mechanics grumbled to me. 'Or should we go to the FIA?' If you like. It's my job to photograph the rear of the Williams for our tech-interested readers. And why shouldn't I be allowed to do that in the pit lane? I don't run into the Williams garage without being asked.
In the gallery you can find some personal impressions of the auto motor und sport reporters of the events behind the scenes.
