Kiss from Schumacher

After hearing about a horror show of a qualifying for Schumi on the phone while on way to Spa this year I had no idea what a fabulous grand prix it would turn out to be.  Specially for the occasion of the 20th anniversary of his debut in F1, I took along a flag made from iron on transfers and fabric pens.  As Schumacher passed us on the driver's parade we fired an airhorn ,which grabbed his attention, then I   waved my dodgy flag.  I was rewarded with a blown kiss.  That, together with his rise from the back of the grid to 5th, and a pass on Rosberg into the bargain made it rather special.  It even made the traffic caused by stupid roadworks outside Liege bearable.
Ha, nearly forgot, it was the first dry race in Belgium in 20 years, spooky... and weirdly the opposite to what happened to us in Hungary.  That's another tale to tell...
