2012 F1

Post by nacg8or » Mon Mar 12, 2012 7:42 pm

http://www.formula1.com/default.html

The new season is less than a week away. Some teams have new drivers but the competitive teams have stayed the same for the most part. It seems Kubica is not well enough to return to racing so he's out. Glad to see three young French drivers in the mix since my homeland hasn't been represented in a while :cool:
Also, the first US GP in several years will take place in its new home in Austin. I just hope that someone can give Vettel a run for his money. Looking forward to Australia on Sunday.

Speed TV carries most of the races with FOX picking up a few of the races during the season.
I went to every USGP at Indianapolis and plan on being in Austin this November for the race.

Most races are aired Live, meaning crazy hours..usually middle of Saturday nights going into Sunday morning sometimes.

I've been to Montreal and that was amazing...hopefully just maybe I can pull of Austin this year.

I've never been to a race but would love to go. Oddly enough I was in Indianapolis the year of the Michelin tire debacle when only six cars raced, but not for the race.

All the races are live on Speed except for the five or six shown on Fox. The Fox coverage is awful since they cut out the pre race segment and the podium. I think you can stream the races online through a British site but I don't know which. As Dawid mentioned, the races are live so many are in the middle of the night since many are in Asia. The races in Europe are usually on at 6am or 7am. I usually end up DVRing them and watching them at a more convenient time.

I might be there too :thumbup:


I don't think I've been this excited about a season since 2007 when Lewis just joined McLaren. I can't wait to see how the McLaren does, and how Lewis bounces back from 2011......not to mention how RBR and Ferrari do.


....and just for Steve, I'm sort of looking forward to seeing what Kimi can do with the Lotus. Another team to watch is Force India....they have to very good young drivers and a solid-looking car

In terms of TV coverage, Speed and FOX are all we get. I try to download the BBC coverage, but thats not an option this year. Sky TV will cover it in the UK, so I might try to download that this year. UK coverage usually blows everyone else out of the water:

Nascar has nothing on F1.

Driving the streets in a lightning fast car, taking hairpin turns, flying through tunnels.. That's my kind of fun! :yahoo:

I used to agree, and I'll still say F1 is miles ahead in my own opinion. There is plenty to love about all forms of auto racing though


.....except for that ridiculous TDI Cup Series....what a horrible idea :ras:

Live streaming practice tonight (P1 @ 9pm) and tomorrow night (P3 @ 10pm): http://stream.speedtv.com/formula-one

The first 2 races have been great! I wouldn't mind seeing KiMi win one soon. Hamilton to suffer a 5 grid spot penalty (x-gearbox). Go SV!

China can be wet, extend those DVR recordings!

Finally watched the Spanish GP. I can't believe there have been five different winners in five races. It's been a great season so far!

If it weren't for McLaren f*cking everything up, I'm pretty sure Lewis would have 4 out of the 5 wins.....and as a big Lewis fan its annoying to say the least
