We are the official car rental partner to Silverstone, which means I get free tickets to the British Grand Prix! I’ll be there on Sunday as, for the second year in a row (see some of my team with Michael Schumacher last year on the left), Avis is providing the cars for the chauffeur-driven shuttle service that picks up VIPs, team members and officials arriving by helicopter to take them to their trackside destination. It’s a non-stop job as the Silverstone heliport becomes the busiest airport in the world for just that day, which is one of the reasons we decided to offset the carbon footprint of the shuttle cars this year.
Now I may be French but, like many other people, I’ve got caught up in all the excitement surrounding Lewis Hamilton. It would be great if he won on his Formula 1 debut in his home country. Bonne chance Lewis!
