He was in a good mood and tried to fullfil as many autograph wishes as he can. But you have to be at the right place at the right time. Sometimes two autographs were possible.
Sebastian Vettel was the nicest driver at the Nürburgring F1 Grand Prix. He signed a lot and in contrast to the past races very nice.
This absolutely unbelievable as he is the three times World Champion!
Fernando Alonso wasn’t very kind but wrote one autograph per meeting. Only one time he refused signing when Vettel fans made him angry. Felipe wasn’t met often. He had always his family and child with him, so he signed his short signature version most of the time. Jenson was kind as always. He signed one autograph per meeting and was chatting with the fans. His teammate Sergio Perez used a hided entrance to the paddock, so we also met him one time. Then he signed two autographs. Kimi behaved like every time. He was stressed and signed one autograph while running away. But he signs every time, even it is hard to be the one he signs for. Romain Grosjean wrote maximum two autographs per meeting, by doing so he wrote just bubbles… One sentence regarding to Nico Rosberg: He has become the most arrogant driver. He is always angry with the collectors and signs less and less. That’s a shame! Lewis wasn’t in a good mood, because he got divorced from Nicole. But he signed one autograph per meeting. After some meeting he just made bubbles. This is his new way especially for signing large action photographs. He is signing better when you present portrait photos to him.
All the other drivers were collectable, especially Nico Hülkenberg and Adrian Sutil. Esteban Gutierrez signs also less and less. Paul di Resta is strange as always. Maldonado signed maximum two autographs per meeting. His autographs becomes more and more fast and ugly. Ricciardo is still a very friendly guy but he tries to quit signing after the second photograph. Same to Charles Pic. Max Chilton got arrogant, too. He only signed two autographs per meeting, from the second day on he only wrote with dedications (!).
