I'm a new motorsport fan and we recently went to Barcelona to see the Formula 1 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
I absolutely loved it and just the atmosphere was incredible. Seeing so many people all supporting the sport, no matter what team they supported, was class.
It also gave me a chance to fully appreciate the other motorsport leagues, F2 & F3, especially with their different styles of cars and that there are a lot more drivers in them, compared to F1.
We started the trip with a pit lane walk on the Thursday evening, which was incredible. We got close to Carlos Sainz & Valterri Bottas and I couldn't believe it!!
Unfortunately we did not meet Charles Leclerc and I wasn't able to show him my themed nails, but maybe someday.
We were then back for qualifying on Saturday and race day on Sunday! I didn't get a Ferrari podium as I wanted, but a Mercedes 1-2 was still excellent.
It was truly an amazing trip and we're already planning which race we will go to next year. (Maybe Hungary)
