Autograph hunting at 50th anniversary of Kartclub Kerpen + Belgium F1 Grand Prix 2011
50th anniversary of Kartclub Kerpen with Michael and Sebastian Vettel
Both, Michael and Sebastian, were close to the fans. So it was possible to collect a lot of great autographs. Michael wrote autographs in many different situations. Sebastian wrote even more always trying to fulfill every autographs wish. At the end of the day I had more Michael autographs as usual.
Directly after leaving Kerpen, I travelled to Spa in Belgium. F1.
Similar to Kerpen Sebastian was very kind and wrote many autographs. Plenty of signatures were possible per meeting. But he was wondering to meet me everywhere.
Very difficult. Lewis writes less and less and he is annoying all the time. Sometimes he refused signing professional photographs.
For a F1 super star he wrote OK. One autograph per meeting without problems.
On Thursday Fernando wrote one autograph per meeting. But from Friday on he stopped signing with showing the collectors, that this situation is to be accepted.
When Felipe arrived at the paddock he wrote his full signature. But from then on he just signed his short version. One autograph per meeting.
Like Sebastian he behaved like at Kerpen. So I got more autographs of him in a good quality. But only one per day.
Nico was friendly but wrote only one autograph per day. It seems as if he learned that by observing Michael.
Nick was very sad inside the paddock. But he signed every photograph beside being interviewed by the media because of his new situation at Renault.
In contrast to Nick, Bruno was very happy. He signed a lot. In the past he wrote less.
He signed 2-3 autographs per meeting. Sometimes nice, sometimes bad. Always complainting
As always, he will never change. On Thursday I got one, on Friday I got one, and then… nothing…
Pastor fulfilled every autograph wish. Very kind, without any problems.
Similar to Pastor, very kind, good prize.
Paul di Resta:
Paul is known as someone who doesn’t like signing. But by discussing with him it was possible to get up to 3 autographs per meeting.
Like Lewis it is more and more difficult to collect his autograph. Only one autograph per meeting, in bad quality.
He wrote many autographs per meeting. But is signature is getting more and more fast and short.
Buemi is one of the busy signers. He signs every photograph. That’s fun!
He is still signing much but he is not as kind as in the past. He tries to stop signing after the third autograph – without success.
Just like Rubens. Nobody knows why…
Jarno was OK. Sometimes he wrote very nice, but not in masses.
Daniel was OK, too. But he asked why I need so many autographs. After arguing he signed while asking how many autographs are left. He does not sign his full name anymore.
His signature is getting more and more quick and bad. But he is writing very much.
Wonderful. Timo signed a lot and was talking with me for some minutes. Great!
Jerome did only sign one autographs per meeting. Inapprehensible!
Nigel Mansell wrote very nice but not that much. John Surtees wrote nice and much. All the test drivers were easy to collect. But they were not seen that often because of the weather in Spa. They preferred to stay in their trucks inside the GP2 paddock.
