    Anyone else a F1 fan? Good start to the season so far. Got a bit chippy at the end of Malaysia. :D I'm loving F1 on NBC Sports now. I really love the side by side they do. I forgot they did that. I'm rooting for Kimi. Always liked his driving and demeanor.

    "Orders? I didn't hear any 'orders'.

    That's the only part that gets me about F1, "team orders". Let 'em race then we'll see who's the best. But other than that I too love NBC's coverage thus far. I wish somebody would carry the V8 Supercar's over here like the F1 coverage.

    Red Bull might have some issues this season. Mark and Seb have not been on good terms in years past and from the looks of this season, Mark has just about had enough. I really don't want to see Vettel win another title. Hes an arrogant little s!@#. Mark deserves the better ride for that team IMHO.

    I agree. By F1 standards, Mark has paid his dues and is due for his turn.

    If what we think we know about both drivers being told to scale back and save their equipment is true, and Seb didnt do it, then Mark most definitely deserves his due.

    Outstanding race!!! Nice to see Kimi back on the podium. Lewis was darn lucky. One can't help but think there is something shady going on with Red Bull and Webber. I think they're trying to get him to quit.

    It is sure hard not to think that something is going on at Red Bull. Webber sure has had some misfortune as of late. The whole running out of fuel during qualifying was a huge mistake that a team of that caliber should not have made. I thought the race was really good also, with the new tire rules it makes for some interesting strategy.

    Just wish we got the V8 supercars live so I could record and skip what I want to and not someone else doing it for me.

    Running out of fuel and the tire flub towards the end. They got lucky to get just a fine for releasing an unsafe car but then again it's RBR. Lower level team would have gotten worse I think.

    Really enjoyed the race and the telecast, Matchett and Hobbs make for terrific insight and excitement (..."by the hair on his chinny chin' chin'"...!!) I do hope something changes in regards to qually though. With the "soft" compound going off so quickly, teams only do 1-2 laps in each session. During Q3 no cars on track for almost 6 minutes. Qually has always been exciting since it changed to this format and just hope Pirelli/FIA can make some modifications to allow more laps for the "softs". I really thought RBR's strategy with Seb would work, and I wondered why more teams didn't qualify on the harder compound, but that is why I am not a team manager.... :grin:

    You're in luck. No softs for Bahrain. :righton: I also love the broadcast team. I thought Bob Varsha was coming back for good in Malaysia but it was temporary. That's ok as I like Leigh Diffey just as well.

    Another fine race if I do say so myself.
    Personally I didn't want to see Vettel win but at least Lotus had both drivers on the podium which I thought was awesome especially for RoGro. Perez is really aggressive this year. Even on his own teammate. Made some very interesting battles but it could have gone sour so fast. Glad it didn't though.

    Totally agree!! Other than 1st place, battles all the way down to 9th! Really terrific action, Alonso was pretty amazing, given the fact his wing malfunctioned resulting in 2 extra stops.He always does well in Spain so could be another good race. Lots of new updates coming for all the cars over the next 3 weeks. Month of May just around the corner, got to be the best 30 days for open wheel fans! :joy: :joy:

    Why is Massa off the pace during races? He seems quick during the other sessions.

    At least he's on pace with at least one aspect when last year he was off both. I think he'll eventually get the race day pace down.

    Pre-Race did not record today for me. Anyone else? Practice, Qully, Race all recorded. I have F1 set up as an auto-record but Pre-Race does not have that option, I know I watched it before. Was there a change in program listing or just my mistake?..... :confused:

    I have to set the pre-race to record too. I wish it was incorporated into the face broadcast. Kinda silly that it isn't that way on NBC.

    Anywho, pretty damn good race if I do say so myself. I'm really loving the fact that Red Bull have started crying their eyes out about the tires and such. I don't seem to recall anything from them when they win. Weird. My man Kimi can seem to look after his tires just fine. Horner might want to tweak a few things on the car to adjust to the tires. Teams adjust to what they're given in racing. Adapt and overcome or get the hell out of the way!

    Very good race for Alonso. Always nice seeing a driver win his home grand prix. Monaco should be a very fun race to watch.

    Gotta love Monaco. Always something going on when they race there. Sergio Perez needs to throttle back a bit. He's going the same way Grosjean went last year and he was banned from Italy. Sucks he cost Kimi some valuable points too.

    My guide info is not showing any listings for practice2 or qually for the Canadian Grand Prix, just race coverage on NBC on Sunday the 9th....?
