Something about them having 4 wheels tends to put a lot off!



Me too

Well it's a freedom of choice, but I believe this day overtaking in F1 is taking place in Pit Lane...unless you are a back marker..putting me off too..but hey F1 is about racing, pneumatic valve, electronics minus TC and top speed too !!!

i watch it if it dont clash with any bike stuff here in the uk the full F1 season coverage has gone onto pay tv with sky

the bbc are still going to show around half the races LIVE

But people arnt happy about that situation



what many dont realise is you cant watch all the races for free

on German tv Channel RTL all you need is a satellite kit for about £40 put RTL On mute the sound

and put bbc radio5 on for audio it works great.its a lot cheaper than paying sky

plus you get lots more sport on the satellite kit too so its a win win situation



not sure about the Bahrain situation again imo they dont go.it could be bad for F1's rep

it probably wont bother Bernie though

Have lost the passion for F1 some 3-4yrs ago.

Used to watch every race I could over the previous 15-18 odd yrs - went to many here in Oz but its lost its soul and I'm worried motogp is heading the same way but thats for another thread.....

Happy to see Kimi back in though - hope hamilton eats it and Button gets over him by the end of the season.

For what it counts Forza Ferrari !

It's a lot of off-track stories these days about F1..I thought it was a joke but then turn out to be true

Wow, you guys don't like F1 much do you? Makes a mental note to try and not mention it too much then

EffWun is disgustingly political and contrived. Just look at the godforsaken mess that is the new Austin track!



The regulations have squeezed all variety from the cars, leaving generic, rev-limited V8 lumps. (Once upon a time, V8, V12, Flat 12 and even H16 engine configurations battled for supremacy.)



I can't bring myself to sympathize with or 'like' any of the drivers.



Bernie makes my skin crawl.



The tire regs do occasionally produce a last-laps contest, but for the other 90% of the race, the drivers are often on different schedules and are not really racing one another.



I'm done with getting up at 4AM. Downloads are available, but I'm loathe to wreck by balance on a big, long video that will likely have very little enjoyable action.



In other words, 'Meh...'

Well, I've actually watched this year with interest (never really been that into F1). But, now that I have a Mexican to root for, well its become more exciting for me. Yeah yeah, whatever, I'm just not that into 4 wheels to get normally jacked about the series. I am impressed that they can lap so fast, and the speeds and corner grip is amazing. Anyway, Sergio Perez is the only reason I tune in. Yesterday he got another 2nd place. I think he was on to win both the races he finished 2nd (Ferrari orders and a bobble in one, yesterday ran out of laps).

I'm sorry but I have to vent about F1 on here for a bit.



So Lewis Hamilton has been spouting about how all the he wants in F1 is to win, then he goes and shows what a load of crap that is by leaving the team with probably the best car on the grid this year to sign for Mercedes who aren't much better than a midfield team right now. Yes, they had a win in China with Rosberg, but seriously? Hamilton has gone for the money and the personal sponsorships he couldn't get at McLaren! Serious about winning my eye!!
