Bob Loblaw commented on the post, Pigot fastest, Alonso and Hinchcliffe risk failing to qualify at Indy 2 years, 5 months ago
It’s almost as if the troglodyte Americans know what they’re doing, and it’s a little bit harder to make these cars turn left than the engineering sweethearts Britain’s motorsport valley would like to […]
I have to admit that this increases the chances that I make it back out to my home race this year. It’s a game changer to be able to enjoy the atmosphere on track and also be able to closely follow the individual […]
It will be 95F/35C in Austin in the middle of June, a track which has no natural shade whatsoever.

Can you imagine the uproar from the Verstap
Can’t overstate as an American how huge this is. I’ve generally liked the team at NBCSN, but NBCSN was always going to be a niche home for Formula 1 because of its place in American TV packages. Furthermore, over the last couple of seasons NBC has done more and more gerrymandering with the channel placement of live races/qualifying sessions, to…[Read more]
Yes, good news for TV fans in USA. I agree with Bob +1, would love to see Will Buxton to stay with the F1 programming in USA. Have always liked Varsha, and grew up with the threesome Varsha, Hobbs and Madgett. But I’d understand if newbies come in. My only hope is that F1 picks appropriate announcers for the occasion. As for the NBCSN crew, I…[Read more]
Agreed, I like Varsha/Hobbs/Matchett; Diffey is just a bit too yelly for my taste and doesn’t bring much to the table that I can’t discern on my own.
You’re not wrong, Taylor didn’t run wide, Albuquerque just moved over on him.
Still, as I review this video, I’m finding myself more and more okay with the decision the stewards made. Taylor picked out the gap, […]
It clearly wasn’t a clean move (that goes without saying), but it didn’t seem nefarious, either. Albuquerque opened the door more than a full car width and Taylor went for it under braking at which point A […]
This is a bit of a shameless plug, but in lieu of drowning myself in the election cycle here in the State over the past few weeks I put together a high-level analysis of the state subsidy that pays the hosting fee for the USGP at COTA. Would love to hear feedback and thoughts from the F1 Fanatic crowd.
The much (unfairly and innacurately, IMO) maligned NBCSN TV broadcast “experts” were all over the Ferrari call being way too early. Perhaps some of the detractors of what is actually a reasonably solid TV […]
Bob Loblaw commented on the post, UK to lose live free-to-air F1 coverage in 2019 with new Sky deal 5 years, 6 months ago
I realize this isn’t going to be popular in here, but as an American who has no choice but to pay to watch F1, all this gets from me is a shrug.
I understand that many of you pay licensing fees and various […]
This sentiment is a black v white argument in and of itself. If you suggest that the halo is awful looking, inelegant, and cobbled together, then you must be against safety in all forms!
It’s a solution, but […]
Agreed, the operative word being “could” instead of “should”. Even now, the Mexican race gives me some mild heartburn about the sustainability of the race at COTA as the crowds the first three years at COTA have […]
Well “one per country” is awfully arbitrary given that the entirety of the landmass of Western Europe would easily fit in the US and the population of Western Europe is not significantly greater than that of the […]
I’d like to see the actual verbiage behind that agreement for the FOM IPO; that’s awfully vague. That said, as much as I hate to say it, I wouldn’t necessarily mind F1 being knocked off its pedestal for a bit. […]
