In-Person autograph hunting experience at Belgium Grand Prix

Jenson Button:
Jenson was escorted by his girlfriend and very relaxed. He wrote one autograph per meeting.

Lewis Hamilton:
He is signing less and less, at least to my mind. He is only singing during his walk away from the fans, his is rarely signing his autograph nicely. (without interruptions)

Michael Schumacher:
He was the only driver who used a side entrance to enter the paddock. Only if you waited over there, which meant to miss all the other drivers, nice and wonderful autographs were possible.

Nico Rosberg:
It is no joy to collect him. His autograph became ugly and he is writing less and less. 1-2 autographs at most.

Sebastian Vettel:
He is still a nice guy, always friendly and writing OK. Regretfully he hasn’t that much time anymore.

Mark Webber:
No comment.

Felipe Massa:
As always, he was writing his short signature.

Fernando Alonso:
He was difficult to handle, because he sometimes refused signing. Till June this year he signed in an better way.

Rubens Barrichello:
Rubinho celebrated his 300th GP at Spa. We were participating at his party, there he signed his full signature on his special jubilee book, but not at photographs.

Nico Hülkenberg:
He signed horribly and much more less than at the beginning of the season, may be because of his first name.

Robert Kubica:
He was kind and wrote OK, not in masses but enough.

Vitaly Petrov:
Nowadays you get only ugly autographs of him. He wrote fast, short, less and bad.

Adrian Sutil:
Super! As always. He is on his way to a top team.

Tonio Liuzzi:
Surprisingly he was not seen. (!)

Sébastien Bumi/Jaime Alguersuari:
As always they were very cooperative and much writing.

Heikki Kovalainen:
He didn’t write much, but sometimes without dedications.

Jarno Trulli:
He wroe hectically and ugly, always in a hurry.

Sakon Yamamoto:
Sakon wrote nicely and seemed tob e happy to fulfill autograph wishes while enjoying it.

Bruno Senna:
Difficult, he just wrote 1-2 autographs as a matter of principle.

Pedro de la Rosa:
Nice, without problems.

Kamui Kobayashi:
Similar to Pedro he was very kind and writing well.

Timo Glock:
Sometimes he was kind, sometimes he was a bit stressed. But all in all it was OK, although his sign was sometimes ugly.

Lucas di Grassi:
He was behaving better than in Hockenheim and wrote much.

Nigel Mansell:
Always in a hurry, but he wrote well. Regretfully not that nice as in the past.

    Jenson Button: 

    He wrote one autograph per meeting an colletor. More is simply not possible to get from a current World Champion. But never the less he was very kind and in a good mood.

  • FC Barcelona

    FC Barcelona

    FC Barcelona is one of the biggest football clubs in the whole world. The club sells souvenirs for thousands of Euro year after year and hits next sales records. It seems to me that original, received in-person autograph could be better and more valuable item than next scarf or t-shirt. This is why so much fans decide to go to FC Barcelona training ground Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in Sant Joan Despi. I was there several times and I did not regret at all even if I did not collect lots of signed photos.

    Jenson Button:

    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.

    Collecting autographs at F1 Grand Prix at Monaco 2013

    All in all it was tough to collect autographs at Monaco this year. There are more and more professional collectors who make the drivers angry. They are not experienced without any good behavior. So it is normal that difficult drivers behave stressed and unlikely…
