Sunday – The Race
: On race day, we arrived again without any problems at the track using the train and shuttle buses. For the first time since 2006, the grandstands were completely sold out. There were also additional grandstands! The weather was good and the crowd atmosphere of the crowd was amazing. As soon as the race started, it got very exciting. It was starting to rain and many drivers were switching their tires, because of the weather. Sebastian Vettel didn’t switch onto wet tires and crashed right in front of us. As we all know, Lewis Hamilton won the race.
Immediately after the race a thunderstorm hit the circuit and it began to rain very hard. The whole track was under water. Despite that some fans walked the track as soon as the gates were open. But, for safety, we stayed under our covered-grandstand for another hour. As the weather was getting better, we went home but we had to walk through tunnels, where the water was very high! Despite that we got home without any problems. What an eventful and crazy weekend. After a sold out German GP, we hope that F1 will stay in Germany for the next few years.
