Felipe meets Scuderia Ferrari Community premium users in Budapest
September 5, 2010
Budapest, 05 September - Last day of the Racing Days in Budapest with exciting moments for the spectators and our friends from the Scuderia Ferrari Community, who experienced this weekend's most exciting part today: they went for a walk on the pit lane before the race, watched the Challenge Italia and Europe races from the elevated hospitality terrace and met Felipe Massa. The Brazilian driver dedicated several minutes to the members of our community during a special meeting, answering their questions, taking photos with them and signing autographs, while his fans in the paddock showed great enthusiasm.
Peter: meeting Felipe was the greatest feeling this weekend; shaking his hand, knowing that he will race at Monza next Sunday, that he's the great driver we're watching in the races...unbelievable.
Reka: my dream came true! It took me several minutes after the meeting with him to understand what had happened. I've seen Felipe with all the work he had to do and we were asking him many questions. He's very sociable, he's a great guy: as a driver and as a man. More than anything else he's a man, he's so humane. It was an honour meeting him again (Reka had already asked an autograph from Felipe at this year's GP at the Hungaroring): this time we could even talk.
Zita: I asked Felipe about his preferred track and he told me that it's his home race in Interlagos. The staff gave us the drivers' caps as a present and we got them signed. The most exciting moment was when Felipe went onto the track for the Formula 1 show: we were right at the pit wall, exactly where he passed. After a couple of laps he stopped in front of the pit wall and did a burn-out, directly in front of us right next to the finishing line. I'll always remember the car's noise with the smoke and Felipe waving while spinning.
Susy: Three really incredible days. I now think that dreams can come true in the form of a surprise, like the email we received from the staff. Thank you so much. I've never seen Peter so excited at an event. I'm so happy. Felipe told me about the emotions of becoming a driver and seeing him there next to us was so exciting
Tamas: What a great day. It was just perfect. I didn't expect having the possibility doing so many things: seeing Felipe and meeting him, entering the hospitality areas with the best view of the track. I really want to thank the community and the organisers for these great days.
Sanyi: What a wonderful day. The Challenge was so exciting, the races with the fighting 430 Challenge, the shows by the F1 Clienti as well as the FXX and 599XX. The best part was Felipe on the track with a burn-out directly in front of us. I cat wait to see our photos, blogs and videos on the website!
