The Beckhams among Silverstone

Along with the sunshine, Sunday at Silverstone saw a raft of celebrity visitors. With the promise of some exciting racing action proving a big draw, we caught up with some of the biggest VIPs to find out how they were enjoying their Formula One experience… An unassuming guy with short blonde hair and his equally blonde wife caused the biggest stir in the Silverstone paddock. David and Victoria Beckham - guests of the Honda team - were Formula One first timers and, judging by their comments, it won’t be the last time the famous couple attend. “I love fast cars - so it was about time that I visited a Formula One race,” explained footballer David. “The atmosphere is breathtaking. The speed and the noise paired with high-level of technology is an unbeatable combination. It’s different to a soccer stadium where fans sit in a very compact space. To see those huge grandstands around the mile-long track filled with enthusiastic fans, is simply awesome. And was the noise music to singer Victoria's ears? “It was music to the ears and the eyes!” she explained. “To be on the grid just minutes before the race starts - to see those polished cars and the guys get ready - and then hear the noise as they start their engines. Awesome, as David said.”
