Any F1 Fans in the Neighborhood?

So as you can probably tell from my avatar, I love F1 and have been following for quite a while now. Before I spout off any further I'm wondering if there were any other F1 fanatics around here?

I'm not really a fanatic, but I do follow F1 pretty closely.

I Have been a huge F1 fan for years now.Have been to Silverstone twice and to Catalunya (Spain) a few years back.For those fans who watch it on TV every other week I highly recommend going to see a grand prix live.You think you have a good understanding of the sport untill you see the cars flying through the Abbey chicane at Silverstone at 190+ and stand there in amazement at the noise these beasts make.

I also feel that this season has been the most interesting and exciting in years with all the changes made over the winter. Just hoping McLaren pull there fingers out for the rest of the season and pull out some podiums for the Brits as I think the championship is as good as over now. Vettel and Red Bull are streets ahead another fine machine by Adrian Newey.

Me too. Michael Schumacher languishing in the middle of the pack is entertaining too.

I watch F1 sometimes along with IndyCar and the Rolex series. This is my idea of a racecar though.

Hi there.

I watch F1 on television, but have never watched racing at a circuit as it's far too expensive.

My grandson has recently completed a race mechanic's 3-year apprenticeship at Silvertone's National Colllege of Motorsport and is a big fan of Jenson Button ever since Button took him round Silverstone for a few laps in his own road car and gave him the lowdown on the complete circuit and how to cope with it.

Lewis Hamilton seems to have lost the plot recently and I don't think he'll improve much until he gets the gremlins in his head sorted out.

Speaking of Silverstone, the RB team orders were BS, and come to think of it...hypocritical. First the chastised Ferrari for doing it with Alonso and Massa, exclaiming both drivers in their camp are treated fairly and allowed to race regardless, yet here comes Silverstone with the "Maintain the gap."

Luckily, Mark disobeyed. My man. Second year in a row for Mark where things worked against him (although not so much at all last season at Silverstone).

I still say Schumi was robbed of a podium position because of DRS.

Although an F1 fan I have not been to a race there but I did spend a day at Silverstone a few years back doing skid pan training as part of the company drivers training. Great fun.

Yer the team orders rule was re-instated this year so was all legal and above board if not a little disappointing.
To much emphasis is placed on the constructors championship these days as that's where the money comes from with sponsorships and alike. Drivers should be allowed to race no matter what, gifting another driver a race win so they can take the maximum points is just wrong no matter how you look at it, but at least the FIA has made it clear on the rules this year so we don't have the carnage of the Massa, Scumi incident a few years back.That single handedly could have killed the sport.

There is a big difference between making your No 2 give way and not allowing your No 2 to potentially cause problems to your No 1 driver so late in the race especially given what happened between the two of them last year.
