Default Anybody been watching Formula 1?

So the NASCAR thread got me wondering if anybody on here watches F1. I just started watching it this season and I'm really not sure why it isn't more popular in the US when I think it's way more exciting than NASCAR.

I used to. But I'm biased I suppose. I had the pleasure of watching it for years as Michael Schumacher rose to fame,..breaking/setting records as he did so. Unlikely to see that again. I like how in F-1 and most races,..other than NASCAR...the race continues despite rain. Of course with Nascar that would have tremendous chaos and nobody left quickly. Some of Michael Schumachers greatest victories were in heavy rain conditions..he was in a class of his own then. But I knew when he retired (yes he came back but at 43 and the current competition..just didn't work out well) I'd never see such again likely.

Actually, Schumacker was doing well at the end of this season and supposedly he's getting a better car next year. They are talking about him possibly being a title contention driver again.

Well I'll try to catch the 1st few races and see how that goes. I did catch the 1st few this past year hoping he would have an amazing comeback, but it soon looked like there was no way he would be in contention.

I like the new points system which made the Formula 1 more fun. And I too enjoyed Michael Schumacher's golden years, specially when he got to race with Mika Hakkinen. But watching him race and having hardly no opponent was kinda boring. Now you got 5 or 6 possible drivers who have a chance to win, and one or two (or more) surprises.

Yeah, there were four drivers who could possibly win going into the last race this year.

That's right. Despite a few years back when last couple of races where just a mere requirement.

I think US lost the interest on F1 after the Indianapolis fiasco. Indianapolis Fiasco.

I never knew that, but I can see how it would turn a lot of fans off.

Used to stay up to watch the races, but then they moved the french show to specialized channels (rds) and cbc's english show was all over the place, not even close to live, so i had results before i could watch. Not fun.


Of course, when i don't work i try to attend montreal's race in june.

Default Re: Anybody been watching Formula 1?

who says you can only spit your chew out when you're turning left? and now, they are wanting to "diversify" the sport which is bs. when I think nascar I think of the rough cowboy type that built the sport...
