Damn those Renaults are fast.

Great lap by Webber, but what a lap by Schumi.
shame he has a penalty
Absolutely gutted for Schumacher and his penalty.
Wow, what a different season this one is playing out to be. Another different pole sitter even with Schumi taking his grid penatly, no race on race row lock-outs by the same teams in fact team mates getting split by several rows at times. Different teams challenging at the top end of the grid, great stuff.
Shame for Button, doesn't seem to be hooked up to that McLaren just now.
It depends on your reasons for watching the sport I suppose. I watch it for the excitement and entertainment and wheel-to-wheel racing. I have a very limited understanding of the technical side of things. As a result, for me this season has been great to watch.
A lot of F1's audience though, have far more of a knowledge of the technical side of things and simply want to watch a bunch of guys thrashing every last inch out of a machine that is working absolutely at the optimum levels. The problem with this approach, for me, is that it can lead to an individual teams dominance, such as that we saw of Ferrari in the early half of the 2000's. I still watched it then, but I think a lot of fans would have switched off, accusing it of being dull.
What times kick off?
I would love to go to Monaco
Wow that was an interesting start.
Good race. Feel bad for Schumi, Disaster for Verne & Button. Hamilton frustrated as always. But great strategy call for Vettel, although I have my issue with him not setting a qualifying lap for the second race now. Imo that's unacceptable and everyoen should set a time, failure to do so should be penalised, but that's just me. Post race investigation still pending for RedBull concerning a whole in the rear base plate. Need to wait and see what comes of that. All and all a good race.
In interviews the drivers say they love the challenge but I'm sure it must be written into their contracts to say that because I'm sure when there are world championship points up for grabs and they are stuck under the gearbox of a car they cannot pass they don't love it so much then.
Formula 1 drivers are in effect adrenaline junkies, and they get a huge adrenaline rush from driving very fast. When the barriers close in and the track gets bumpier, it feels quicker and you are on edge 100% of the time, increasing the adrenaline effect. As a result the buzz is bigger and the drivers will love driving the track - nothing to do with money or contracts for them.
Race wasn't the greatest to be honest, everybody just seemed too cautious and relying too heavily on rain which never came to make progress. Bit gutted for Schumacher as well, stuck on 2 points despite not actually doing a particularly terrible job all season.
It's proving to be one hell of a season in F1 - 6 different winners in 6 different races - the drivers championship is wide open.
Yeah I guess thats right. I watch it each year out of the hope that something such as rain will come along and mix things up a little, more often than not the beer and sofa send me to sleepOriginally Posted by GerorgeLFC
surprised that it seems no one is watching qualifying, Vettel on pole ahead of Hamilton and Alonso, looks good race ahead of us
Any one watching?
What`s wrong with Alonso?
Well done Lewis
7 different winners in 7 different races this season.
