Gordon and Holly Ramsay join the likes of Tom Cruise and Geri Halliwell at Silverstone
A number of famous faces were out in force this weekend as they flocked to Silverstone to watch the British Grand Prix get underway, where Lewis Hamilton hopes to scoop another victory this season.
Among the celebrity spectators were celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and his daughter Holly, who appeared to be loving every minute of the action as the race got underway.
A number of snaps taken from the F1 venue revealed the smiling pair sporting VIP badges as they explored.
The father and daughter duo were spotted both trackside and enjoying a prime spectator's spot in the Red Bull Racing garage during qualifying, and Gordon, who also shared his pride for eldest daughter Megan on her birthday in a recent social media post, could be seen listening to the action with headphones alongside Holly.
This is the second Formula One race Gordon has attended in recent months, with the F1 mad star having previously been spotted at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in Riyadh earlier this season.
Keeping a low profile for their weekend at the races, both Holly and Gordon opted for casual outfits as they watched both the qualifying sessions and race itself.
For Gordon’s look, he opted for a plain black t-shirt and jeans, while daughter Holly wore a white ribbed tank top and red shorts, complete with a red biker jacket and a signature Louis Vuitton bag.
The pair weren’t the only stars in attendance at the British Grand Prix, as Hollywood heavyweights Tom Cruise and Keanu Reeves were also in town to follow the nail biting action for themselves.
Neither of the stars seemed to be deterred by the wet weather for Saturday’s qualifying, with Keanu seen watching the session intently from the Aston Martin Garage while wearing a pair of ear protectors.
A keen motorsports enthusiast himself, the Matrix star even co-founded his own motorcycle company, Arch Motorcycles back in 2011, which makes custom built motorcycles for those who can afford the hefty price tag.
Embracing the salt and pepper haired look, Keanu appeared undeterred to be thrust into the public spotlight at this year’s race, as he stopped to chat and take photos with dozens of fans who were also enjoying the Grand Prix.
Joining Keanu and Tom, were also pop sensation Geri Halliwell, tv presenter Rylan Clark, and even Homeland actor Damian Lewis, who much like his fellow actors couldn’t hide his enthusiasm and interest in the action as it got underway.
And what a start it was, as just minutes into Sunday’s race, the cars had barely left the grid when a huge crash sadly caused Guanyu Zhou’s car to roll and slide across the tracks amid a sea of sparks.
The heart-stopping moment immediately led to a red flag and the race was halted, as emergency services rushed to the trackside to offer the injured driver assistance.
He was taken to hospital via stretcher, but thankfully was conscious and moving after being rescued from the car.
An official statement was released by race organisers following the crash, saying: “The FIA advises that following the start of the race, emergency crews were immediately in attendance and the drivers of Car 23 (Albon) and Car 24 (Zhou) have been taken to the medical centre.
"Both drivers were conscious and will be evaluated at the medical centre. Further updates will be given in due course.”
It wasn’t the only drama in store for the celebrity spectators either, as moments after the red flag had gone up, protestors, believed to be from Just Stop Oil, stormed the track and had to be removed by authorities before the race could resume.
