  1. Thanks Keith, wow these times are a joy after the pain of Suzuka! Shame I’ll probably miss Friday :( Very excited for Interlagos, great track

    1. Yeah I overdid it a bit last weekend, really didn’t get enough sleep!

      1. Same but suppose f1 is worth it or maybe we’re just all mad

        1. both i suspect.

            It’s worth it it’s the only thing I’d wake up for consistently at hours we should be asleep it’s just got that extra something.
            Plus we could be slightly mad aswell but who really cares if your mad about cars travelling at 200MPH+!

    2. Don’t moan about it. We have to do it for each Grand Prix in Australia. Melbourne, Shanghai and Suzuka have been the only expeptions.

  2. Yea same here, little sleep left me tired on monday morning.

    But cant wait til Brazil, will be amazing!!! hopefully the race will be good.

    The last few races have been very boring!! The Qualifying has been out of this world!

  3. Interesting that qualifying is scheduled for BBC1, it was initially planned to be the only F1 session shown on BBC2 all season, because it was on at prime time. Perhaps F1 has become more of a ratings hit than the BBC expected?

    1. Briton can close out the championship, might be apealing to some.

  4. Nooooooooooooooooooooooo out of all the races on the calender this is the race I dread most. Hooray for watching the Interlagos race at 2am. Ill never forget last years race I couldn’t sleep for ages after that race I was awake until 10am

      Yes indeed Andromeda,
      Formula 1 returns to network 10 for this weekend in Australia while ONE shows the t20 Champions League.

      Qually 4am Sunday Morning
      Race 3am Monday Morning

      Stocking up on Coffee, Red Bull, No Doz anyone???

      1. Oh yes! Going to bed at breakfast time on Sunday morning I guess? I too live in Australia.

          tilley since I used to do all nighters and then go to bed after Interlagos but now that I am old and boring I will be in bed by 8pm and up at sparrows fahrt!

  5. brilliant trck and quite a good time for the european audience in my view, dont tell bernie that though:D

      I would go as far as to say that the Brazilian GP at Interlagos is my favourite race of the season.

  6. All practice/quali/race days are worth it for a sleepless night for all of us F1 fanatics! If you miss one, you will still have a sleepless night wondering how in the world you missed it! :)

  7. If I remember correctly, this year’s race will start an hour earlier than last year.

    1. nope. last year’s race started at 5pm UK time as well.

  8. I had a couple of the times above wrong but I’ve corrected them now – sorry about that!

  9. Interesting thing is we’re entering the DST the very day of the race here in Brazil. So I would be aware for the times. Nobody’s saying anything about that round here, regarding the race. Maybe that’s why @Journeyer was talking bout the time.

    1. Precisely: both qualifying and race will be at 2pm local time, but, since we’ll enter Daylight Saving Time from saturday to sunday, the race will be one hour earlier for the rest of the world, including for many brazilian states in the north and northeast…

  10. Are you sure about the times? The BBC is listing as an hour earlier

  11. I think Keith’s times are correct, they match up with the ones on
