    Formula 1

    Anybody else excited for the season to start up?

    With teams unveiling their new liveries, I am getting amp'd up for races. But man, are those halos ugly.

    Re: Formula One

    U bet I'm excited!

    I'm thinking 2018 will be an up & down toss between Ferrari, Mercedes and the Bulls with a few others on the podium along the way....

    Love the McLaren livery.......

    Re: Formula One

    I like the 2018 McLaren lovey quite a bit more than last years, too. I wonder if it will get filled with a few more sponsor badges along the way.

    Iím hoping the big three are all close this year. Would make for a more fun season, thatís for sure.

    Went to Qualifying of the US GP this last year with a couple friends and the Mrs. Hereís a cool shot of the main straight with the large hill leading up to Turn 1 at COTA. Hope it looks okay - just a cell phone pic.

    Re: Formula One

    I love the papaya orange livery of the McLaren's, harkens back to the days when Bruce's cars dominated CanAm won Indy and in F1 all those years ago. Im def an F1 watcher, have been a huge fan since '75. The first GP I attended was Long Beach in '76, I was at Cooks Corner when the flag dropped and Hunt ran up the back of Lauda's Ferrari.

    this year, I believe will once again be Mercedes' championship to lose. the Fiats (red cars) will undoubtedly be their closest rival but I ain't a Vettel fan, so there. Verstappen's antics will most likely keep me tuned in this season. I've been threatening to attend COTA for the Austin round and prob will. Id also take the opportunity to visit an audio buddy living there.

    Yes, I think the Mexican GP will be on ABC, too. Thatís a bummer. I thought I read that Liberty was going to do a streaming service this year. My understanding was that a portion is to be free with the option to upgrade for some shekels. Iíll see if I can find some info on it.

    Re: Formula One

    Looking forward to the season. Maybe Ferrari or Red Bull will de throne Mercedes. Will McLaren have a better year? Will Honda’s engine propel Toro Roso to better results? ... We’ll find out starting on 3/22!

    Re: Formula One

    Results matter little as the race unfolded like this:

    Build up, anticipation, excitement of lap 1, clam, boring, dull, duller, dullest, dim, pitch black of complete darkness, sleeping, woke up, Vettle won, press talking rubbish, turned it off and knocked over my coffee ☕️. Morning wasted.

    Re: Formula One

    The 2018 coverage on ESPN here in the states SUCKED. I guess its the same feed worldwide now. SkyTV or something. I want last years team back.

    Can't understand the 2 Brits doing the commentary and really don't know or care about the Brit slang. Their humor is boring. Its horrible.

    I do however like the new on screen graphics.

    As far as the race went, handing the win via Virtual Safety Car has got to be figured out. Wins need to be decided on the track, in anger.......

    I love the new coverage as it shows the Sky feed. It isn't like NBCSN did any better. They just had Hobbs(pro Hamilton), Matchett and Diffey (who got on my nerves in the beginning).The pre race coverage was nice also. It is what it is. I remember when we had 15 mins of F1 coverage on ABC's wide World of Sports. Much better theses days.

    I'm with you Kingsrule. While the new coverage team is good in some respects, I miss the old guys. They really need to address the rules, how the hell can you have the winning pass on a yellow flag???

    I definitely miss the Hobbs and Matchett. They were funny and provided relevant technical comments. The new coverage on ESPN so far is ok but, to me, lacking. Certainly Liberty appears to be ok with US TV coverage to be on ESPN’s secondary channels and not willing to invest in better presenters like Hobbs and Matchett - just my opinion. Likely a financial decision to leverage Sky’s coverage.

    Re: Formula One

    Except for taking a break after Senna was killed in the crash, I've always followed and watched F1.

    Don't know if I will continue, due to the - IMO - boring coverage. I want last year's guys back...

    Re: Formula One

    Now that is how an F1 race is supposed to be run. Talk about comebacks and drama. I have the pre race and races set up separately to record. I also lost part of On the Grid. I changed my settings to allow extra time for both programs. I do like the pre race coverage provided by Sky.

    as long as vettel steps on his dick the remainder of the season im a happy camper, even tho he was punted off by Max (keep effin' with the establishment my man!)

    Agreed it was a great win for DR and his overtakes at this Chinese GP will be talked about for some time.

    Re: Formula One

    In regards to Max Verstappen attempted pass on Vettel, I will use the same quote from former MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner that he told Valentino Rossi when they had a similar incident. "Your ambition outweighed your talent"! I give Max credit as there was a gap for a second and he tried to occupy it. F1 needs some other types of passing besides pit stops.

    Ricardo (whom I like) would never have been able to do it were it not for the fresh tires just as the safety car came out & the Mercedes & Ferraris were blocked from doing so.

    So if youíre not a Vettel fan, who do you follow?

    fresh rubber or not, it takes commitment overtaking in a braking zone when the probable outcome is wheel banging with someone going off. DR showed he's got maturity vis-a-vis Max, for instance.

    I follow any and all teams/drivers that take wins away from the horsey cars I'm not a Fiat fan they've manipulated their way with FIA and every governing body since the '50s and a loss on their books is a win in mind. As for Vettel, DR proved to be the more mentally fit teammate in '14. With identical equipment Ricardo showed Vettel his heels more often than not.

    Both Faux 4's are propped up constantly , there are at least 4 guys easily better than those two and BTW , all of Vettels teammates ( going back to his BMW days ) were faster than him , not just DR ...

    Re: Formula One

    OK I have to say the ESPN coverage is starting to grow on me. It appears that the current guys have better access to the drivers and team personal, especially on the grid walk.....and I don not miss the podium interview. It was stupid.

    Shaping up to be a very interesting season.

    I stopped on that day as well. But after a dozen years or so, I came back.

    Still miss Ayrton to this day. Especially on rainy days at the track...

    Re: Formula One

    last month I visited the Donington GP Collection in the UK, its largest assemblage of historic and recent F1 cars in one place. There's a Senna tribute section and statue outside the park of Fangio and Senna sharing the podium Donington was the site of what was--arguably--Senna's greatest drive in the wet when he passed 5 cars (including Prost) in the opening lap to take the lead and win the '93 European GP. The mP4/8 he drove in that race is pictured in Marlboro livery along with his last mount in which he lost his life, the Williams Fw16.

    I really dont think they could have organised a more boring GP if they tried. Race to the first stop and then cruising to the end - OMG. People paid a lot of money for this, sorry for them!

    What did you expect?? Monaco is a procession, always has been and always will be. Unless it rains only the top four, maybe six qualifiers have a chance at winning and if you said top 3 qualifiers you'd get no argument from me.

    Have you been to the Monaco GP?? The last and only time I attended was in 2004, the v10 era when they screamed past 20k revs. i took my then girlfriend (now ex-wife) and she knew nothing about motorsport but her outburst of euphoria when the cars screamed past was priceless. only because Im from the non-PC generation, i'll say it for what it is: The Monaco GP is the single greatest display of tits & Ass in all the Continitent and the only place to be, to see and--if you're anyone special--be seen. you have to remember its the weekend following the Cannes film festival so you get that crowd too.

    bottom line, Monaco is a part of the trinity every professional driver wants on their CV (Le Mans, Indy & Monaco). If you want to watch a 'real' F1 race its either Spa or Suzuka and arguably Monza. To be honest, you're better off watching the Monaco GP on TV and only attending it for the spectacle that it is. It was on my bucket list and it lived up to the hype and then some.

    well deserved win for will powers but Ed Carpenter was SO close (relatively speaking). I was rooting for Ed, as being Indiana's own and as a team owner (he only does indy and sits out the rest of the season). the proverbial all-American story had he pulled it off.

    Yeah, Monaco indeed is more spectacle than race.

    Says a lot the top 5 didn't change yesterday. Indy wasn't much better with all the crashes due to the new car...and the 600 finale ended like Monaco.

    Just an average day of racing

    Re: Formula One

    A group of friends traditionally get together on the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend for a full day of racing. We start with breakfast in Monaco. Then, Indianapolis for lunch. And, to a lesser degree, the NASCAR 600 mile race for dinner and beyond since the race lasts a lifetime. This year, none of the races met expectations.

    We always look forward to this weekend since it has become a tradition for us over the last seven years. A day of racing, great food, beverages and friends - doesn't get much better than that!
