I usually watch Formula 1 when I am at my dad's house, he is a huge fan. I was more into it during the Schumaker days. I even had a video game for Nintendo 64.

My favorite racer now is Kimi Raikkonen, but he is not even racing this season, so I haven't really been watching much this year. However, I did see the race today. What a stupid move by Vettel, especially when you are going against your own teammate. I am glad Hamilton got the win, I like him as a person; he looked like he was going to be the next Schumaker when he was a rookie, he hasn't been anything like that since.


It's not been him, last year McLaren along with a lot of the other teams were miles behind Brawn. Once they caught up he put up better showings. This year he has been driving well but has had some bad luck, which is why he's not higher in the championship.

Give Hamilton a Brawn last year and a Red Bull this year he'd win the title....him and Alonso are the two most talented drivers in F1

I still don't know what both Vettel and Webber were thinking.

I can agree to that.

Pretty simple, Vettel was faster, had gotten past him, but Webber is competing. He wasn't about to concede his position and neither was Vettel, in the end Vettel twitched to the right, Webber didn't budge and crash

I used to be a much bigger fan before I came to college (ie when my cable used to get speed vision). Used to love waking up early Sunday morning making myself breakfast and watching the race.

I think part of the reason I lost some interest is that the sport just changes too damn fast, there's nothing you can constantly hold on to. Qualification is always changing, the points this year are stupid, every year teams are changing (I still don't know what happened to Brawn). And yea that's part of the fun I guess, but sometimes you with the FIA would just say "if it ain't broke don't fix it."

It also doesnt help that I'm not sure who to root for anymore. My favorite racer and the man that got me into F1 now races for the rival team (Shumi), the driver I had loathed for the past 4-5 year now represents my boys (Alonso), and the one guy I did like after Shumi isn't racing any more (Kimi). WTH! Next thing Ferrari is going to drop out of F1.

Brawn are still there, they're just under the Mercedes moniker now. Exact same team, different colour scheme/drivers.

Yeah, stability has really hurt this sport. But all there trying to do it lose that "the winner is selected in the first turn" flag that formula 1 gets. There have been some good battles so far which is good for the sport.

EDIT: I know sunny is happy now with that sig...

I agree completely with the recent comments. Formula 1 was so much better the old way.

David Coulthard used to be my favorite racer.

Woop, this season has been great so far, lots of good battles and the points system is really keeping this thing wide open.

Look for Formula 1 to introduce the "button" one way or another for next year. It's worked quite well for CART and the IRL, and the idea is not new. In the "turbo" era (1978-1988) every car had a button the driver could push to dial up another 100bhp when he needed to pass. I suspect they're going to refine the KERS rule so that it does more or less the same thing.

In any event I find North American racing a lot more boring with the countless caution periods. And don't even get me started on NASCAR's point system, which no one understands beyond the fact that it places no premium on winning races.

I expect KERs to be changed and perhaps more teams to pick it up next year too
