Deutschland Day 4 - Qualifying ♥

Hello lovelies!

How are you all? Did you have a nice weekend? ♥

I sure had, chilling out with my man, just the two of us - which is nice considering the next five weekends will be spent with friends. This week, we're having our 5th anniversary. I can't believe we've been together so long. Although it kinda feels like we've been together even longer. It's funny like that.

Anyway, today, I will be sharing another post about our trip to Germany. We will now go through our Saturday, when we went to see qualifying. For those who don't know, qualifying is the part of Formula One where they compete for the starting grid order for the actual race day. So it is pretty exciting.

We arrived pretty early in the morning, and it was already super hot then. And bit more viewers than before.

Valtteri Bottas. Totally one of my favorites, and I believe he has a great chance to win even the title if he just has a car that can compete. Definitely a talented guy.

A bit different race car. Just kidding, of course this one was just cleaning the track.

And suddenly, a red flag. Which means they have stopped the race - or in this case, qualifying session - for some reason.

This time, the reason being Lewis Hamilton hitting the wall. That was quite unfortunate for his qualifying, but luckily he didn't get injured.

Looking way too happy to be there.

After the qualifying, it was time to see the Saturday races for the lower classes:

I gotta say, I love GP2 and GP3 races, as they have so much going on in them. And they're not overprotective over everything like people are in F1. Sorry if you don't think that way, but I do. Of course it's important that no one dies during races anymore, but I would personally love to see a tiny bit more action and taking risks out there.

Sometimes it's pretty hard to hold up the sign the right way round.

On that day, there was this autograph hour in the F1 Village, with the F1 drivers. I didn't get any autographs, but my dear fiance managed to take few pics of my favorite driver, Daniel Ricciardo. Here's the best one of those:

I love the fact he's always looking so happy. It's nice to have that kind of energy out there. Hopefully he can keep that up for a long, long time.

After this, we headed out if the F1 Village, from the wrong gate, which led us to wander around Hockenheim with only a little clue where to go.

But this was the perfect opportunity to take some pictures of Hockenheim, so it wasn't bad at all. We saw these Ferrari trucks, for example. And below, some snapshots of Hockenheim itself:

So that was our Saturday at Hockenheim. I have so, so much more pictures of the cars - but you know, they are pictures of the cars. If you wanna see more of that, there's still tomorrow's post. And those who know me are always welcome to visit and get bored with my hundreds of pics. :D

Let me know what you think about this post in the comments below!

Now, I gotta get going with whole other things, but tomorrow, you'll see the last racing post for a while. There's still a couple of Germany related posts after that, and then we'll get to bit other topics. Hopefully you'll like what I have in store with you. See you soon!

Have a lovely day, y'all! ♥
