Yes, I am a very happy man. Fernando Alonso rocketed to his first win of the year at Silverstone and has now drawn level in the all time list with Jackie Stewart on 27 wins. All at the home of Formula 1 and 60 years since Ferrari won the first F1 race ever.

It was rather bizarre to see young David Coulthard, Michael Schumacher and Eddie Jordan on the screen, as well as seeing old Mark Blundell when tuning into the actual F1 coverage.
