Thanks for links for streaming. I thought I would need them, this year.

But so far for me, the new NBC Sports channel has been excellent. Last year Speed only had live, but this year NBC also has a delayed rebroadcast, if midnight to daylight isn’t the best time to watch live.

Just for kicks I looked up the track website.
Race day tix grandstand reserved seat - 200 to 250 Euros.

Man those guys pay dearly to attend in person.

I like Vettel's competitiveness, and I kinda' rooted for him last year (not too much, though, really), but I dearly hope someone else wins on Sunday.

I do not want to see a total domination by a single driver - I stopped watching F1 during most of the Schumacher years as there just was no one good enough to race him. Boring! (I think Hakkinens' second championship was it for me).

LOL! I race that track in RACE 07 using a 2011 F1 car mod. Most online racers don't particularly care for the track - the last 3 turns are stupidly tight and difficult.

Most of us prefer Spa or Monza or Suzuka or Montreal (hint: storied, historic tracks where the greats raced, LOL). BTW, everyone loves to practice Monaco, but it is really to difficult to race there except for the top online drivers; too many accidents, difficulty staying close.

Is that the track as current? If so, they’ve taken out the last kink/turn before the front straight. That would be REALLY nice!

LOL! I drive the McLaren online - it has the best cockpit view of all the cars.

Yeah, Button's been quiet so far, hope he can lively things up.

There are a couple of Ariel Atom mods for RACE 07. Not sure the one I have is the “3” or not. Fun cars to drive, though!

It’s a loss to me why this track and Hungary are still on the calendar. YAWN.

It’s even a go-kart track in a street car.

Well, that wasn’t too exciting a race, was it?

As the commentators (e.g. Martin Brundle) have been pointing out for a while, right now it’s all about tire management, i.e. no one is actually racing flat-out. If they did, they’d have to do 10 pit stops...

Pirelli really should be forced to provide decent tires, or be dumped as a supplier. Tires should be good for flat-out racing with two to three stops. JMHO (and I’m starting to lose interest, after decades, following this crap).

not sure but i think tire-desegregation is in the rules somewhere since there's no more fuel stops

there was a time, they could go just about a full race on one set, two max

Just watched the race, some excellent wheel to wheel without wrecking.
Don’t really like Alonso but he’s a stud and was really amped for the home crowd. They got their 250 Euros worth of racing.

Here at Indy it’s so cold they’re probably hunting down antifreeze for the engines tonight....
