What an experience... And a great race.
Mansell & Fittipaldi were in a class of their own all weekend, showing they are 2 worthy F1 world champions.
I feel the Brazillian was infact the quicker of the two, but just couldn't get past.
I sat at boma oposite the Chicane just before the main straight, Brilliant seats with a lot of action.
Derek Warwick's superb over-taking move on Lammers was right in front of us, as was the collision between Laffite & Arnoux with the two cars sliding through the sand a few meters in front of me.
I managed to go on the pit walk in the morning and meet several of the drivers and get their autographs, including Mansell, Fittipaldi, Patrese, Stuck, Tambay & Laffite.
Tambay was extremely friendly and commented that everybody had Ferrari shirts on in the pits, and was impressed to see me with my Renault shirt, saying he was "50% Ferrari, 50% Ranault supporter".
At the end of the race I managed to get into the Paddock club, which as anyone has been to a F1 grand prix will know is where all the rich and famous sit on top of the pits for races. Got to see the podium celebrations from there.
An absolutely awesome weekend.
Here are some pictures I took, if you want to see any particular drivers let me know because I took hundreds.
