She said: "It’s very tense. I feel like I am in the way but it’s amazing, I want to be watching everything. It’s great.

“My real reason for being here today is I am with the charity Race Against Dementia.

“We are here in support and are having an amazing time."

Founded by Sir Jackie Stewart, after his wife Helen’s frontotemporal dementia diagnosis, Race Against Dementia funds early-career researchers to accelerate progress towards a cure for dementia.
