In this climate of economic problems over the globe, bean counting and budgetary retrenchment can be experienced in almost every aspect of life, be that domestic fiscal policy revealing itself in cut welfare expenditure, penny pinching seen in the closing of schools or an end to hundreds of public libraries, or the ongoing and apparently endless financial crisis in the Euro Zone. When there's upsetting poverty and poor families all across the globe, people have need of a little jot of glamour in their lives; something to draw our attention away from the gloom all around us by showing us a bit of excitement and delivering a thrill to our living rooms. Perhaps this is just one reason why Formula 1 has experienced a pronounced increase in popularity over recent years.
Another reason for the sport's massive and continued popularity with the UK audience may be the prominent positions taken by two of its domestic drivers, namely Jensen Button and Lewis Hamilton, both of whom have won the Formula One Drivers' Championship in recent years.
Another potential cause for this obvious growth in its popularity is just that this type of motor sport is particularly enjoyable to watch these days, with a great many talented drivers at the peak of their game. Over and above this the technology associated with bringing F1 into our homes through the medium of television has never been so impressive, be this HD Television, 3D TV, or just the fantastic camera positions that the broadcasters are now able to use. It's because of this that the viewing experience for the viewer of Formula 1 has never been more wonderful.
But with the growing success of watching Formula 1 from the relative ease of your front room has come an increased appreciation of the truly amazing thrill and glamour that can only be gleaned from witnessing the sport for real. Being one of the most expensive sports anywhere in the world, and given the breathtaking speed and excitement that can be entailed when F1 is in town, there's really no replacement for being trackside and watching the amazing events firsthand. The only worthwhile understanding of the ridiculous speeds that Formula 1 cars can achieve comes from putting yourself in the stands and seeing them belt past you at incredible speed.
So if you really want to push the boat out, either as a little bonus for yourself or as a present for a loved one or family member who very much loves catching Formula 1 on the television, then getting into the F1 paddock is surely an unbeatable present. This can be a very expensive present or treat, clearly, otherwise we'd all be trackside every other Sunday during the season. One of the more achievable ways to get access to this day of luxury is through the Paddock Club F1, which provides access to the incredible VIP experience that only the F1 paddock club pass can provide.
