No bird related news to talk of with the miserable weather continuing, so i will have to be content with my latest visit to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix! Like last year i was fortunate enough to hang out in the GP2/GP3 paddock with Arden International. A long day on Saturday (7.30am-11pm) but good results kept the spirits high. Easily the star attraction this season in GP2 and currently leading the championship is the Brazilian Luiz Razia, fortunately racing at Arden. He had an excellent weekend with a 5th placed finish on Saturday in the feature race and 1st place on Sunday in the sprint race.

Razia's team mate at Arden is young Swiss driver Simon Trummer who also had an excellent weekend although the results didn't quite show that. 15th on Saturday and 11th on Sunday.

 A very happy Luiz Razia retuning to the paddock after his sprint race victory on Sunday.

A rather disappointed looking Davide Valsecchi returning to the paddock after finishing 2nd to Luiz in Sundays sprint race.

The young up-and-comers (18-19yo) all race in the GP3 series. Current championship leader also with MW Arden is Mitch Evans who had an excellent weekend with a 2nd on Saturday and 11th on Sunday.

Mitch's teammate Matias Laine had a mixed weekend with a 9th and 18th but comfortably consolidates his 5th place in the championship.

More to come from the Porsche Supercup, the F1 Classics and of course the GP.
