F1 COST-CUTTING: Part Nine
This week: Con the locals, get free food

If you only go spectating at one track on the F1 calendar -- it has to be Spa. But, you'll want to blend in with the crowd and nothing says 'Real Belgian Race Fan' more than an air-horn. Show your support for our boys by drinking the contents of a Red Bull can, then fitting it to an air canister for the ultimate in 'must have Belgian race gear'.

As well as making you look very cool, it will also save you money. No longer will you need to bother with expensive restaurants in the evening -- one look at your air-horn will convince locals that you're one of them -- meaning you can gatecrash a campsite barbecue for free food and beer. Perfect. Parp Parp!

"I think that's the most we could have hoped for during today's session. You always expect to lose a session in Spa due to the changeable weather conditions and that was the case this morning. We had a pretty productive afternoon with plenty to go through. We didn't always move in the right direction, but that's not always a bad thing as we learn from it. So, that's today and now we'll put it all in focus for tomorrow -- not a bad start for us."

"We didn't have so much running time today, especially in the morning, but that was actually quite good for us. We knew we would face a difficult Friday as we don't have that much mileage available because of my engine situation, so it was a little bit lucky to have the rain this morning. In the afternoon, I felt comfortable with the car, we didn't have any problems and I'm quite happy with the performance. We need to see exactly where we are tomorrow, but I think it's been a good start to the weekend. I love this circuit, it has excellent corners and is a lot of fun."
