Giedo van der Garde answers questions and British PM David Cameron visits Leafield, Caterham headquarter.

Giedo van der Garde commented on what it is like to be a Formula One driver. He said "a lot of people think it is always glamor, girls and nice things but it is a lot of hard work". One point he made was the time spent per day at a Grand Prix event: "Normal weekend, normal race day is from 7 in the morning start to 10 in the evening. It is not easy but its for sure the coolest thing in the world."

Van der Garde recently had his time in the cockpit at Barcelona and he said, "Despite today's weather it's been another relatively productive day. It's certainly been one of the coldest days I've had on track, but even with the cold track temps and the rain that stopped and started we were able to get through quite a bit of work."
