I went to Friday practice for this year's British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
The new breed of F1 cars are highly complex with their turbocharged engine/power units with all sorts of energy recovery
systems and trick suspension (which may soon be outlawed). Opinion is divided about the noise the cars make, I found they
made a pretty good sound when accelerating hard but on part throttle or when they were coming towards you they were a bit
too quiet for my liking.
Anyway they are still amazing cars and they are producing some good racing this year. Here are a few of the pictures I took.
