Was a huge fan from the mid 90s but I don't get excited these days by it. Now sports cars... That a different kettle of fish :)

I follow it, it can be boring these days but hoping that the big car changes next season will mix things up a bit, Red Bull may loose their advantage... at least for a little while!

I love F1.As Andy T9 says, next year should be interesting with all the car spec changes.Trying to under stand the politics and tactics makes a big difference to my enjoyment of a mundane race.

I'm going to see the film " Rush " on Friday....getting good reviews,and
Korea this weekend.....That's my F1 fix sorted.



Go well.

I really enjoyed the film Rush
I love F1 it is interesting if you know some history and politics of the drivers and their teams, have been following it avidly for the past 4 seasons and already am dreading December with no F1 to amuse us of a weekend


Hopefully the changes next year will shake it all up, my heart will truly sink if Vettel wins the first race next March

I was convinced yesterday that Vettel would do no better than third place
he never has any bad luck! touches with Hamilton and he gets a flat and has to retire, minor performance loss to Vettel's car and in the end it plays to his advantage as they use a different strategy to win the race. And i'm sure they build Webber's car with all the reject parts or used bits from Vettel's car, his reliability is usually pretty terrible!

Gary Player the old golf pro used to say that the more he practiced, the luckier he became. Same for all sportsmen i guess!

I love to iron my shirts during F1 race ...

If there's something really exciting, there is a review and I can stop ironing for a while ...
Did this too, when Senna died in Imola ...


We have the advantage that Nicki Lauda has been analysing the race on TV for decades.
He is a real expert, hates "small talk" and has a lot of (hidden) humor!

The co-reporters during the race is Christian Danner - a real motor sports expert too.

I am no Vettel fan. Prefer Rosberg (as a nice and honest guy).
