Deutschland Day 5 - Race Day ♥

Hello lovelies!

How are you all? ♥

Today, I'm keeping the blabbering short because I have quite literally a ton of pictures to show to you. So let's get started:

Some early lunch at the Mannheim railway station.

The day was somewhat rainy, so that surely made things interesting. Before Formula One, there was of course races for GP2, GP3, and Porsche Supercup. And here are the pics for all of them:

Almost an accident!

And yes, you can have a flaming car in the middle of rain.

Patrick Dempsey making a guest appearance on the Porsche. That was pretty cool to me, taken that I used to watch Grey's Anatomy younger. Never thought I'd see him that close.

Next, some pictures from the drivers' parade and the opening ceremonies of the race. I think it's cool they were driven around in old cars.

Germans sure know how to organize a program. Look at how cool parade they had after the drivers:

Maybe this pictures tells you how many people were actually taking part to the parade. And they played music while going. I still get goosebumps thinking about it, it was such a powerful performance.

So finally, all is ready for the race itself:

Poor Massa hitting the wall. Not good for him.

...and poor Sutil having to retire from the race as well.

I feel you bro.

After the race was over, we ran near the pit lane to go see the three best drivers get their prizes.

I was so happy to see a Finn up there, even if he didn't win. And I do support Rosberg as well, so it was pretty good for me. Of course, I gotta give it to Hamilton, he put up such a fight to get to the third place. Great driving!

Before leaving, we took some pictures of the pit lane. There was lots going on as they inspected the cars and so on.

Three amigos.

And finally, probably the best picture of us from the whole trip. Someone had picked up the sign as a souvenir and was kind enough to let us take a picture with it.

So, that covers all my race memories from the trip. On next post, I will be talking about shopping in Frankfurt, which will end the series of Germany posts here on the blog. And we can get to other topics.

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

Now, I'm off to bed. It's our anniversary tomorrow (well, technically today where I live: 6th August) and we have some plans. ;) See you later though!

Have a great day!
