I was in the Stamford grandstand this year (pretty good choice overall) – there was a single screen for the entire block opposite A4.26th March 2018, 9:40 at 9:40 am #363532
At first I was sceptical but over a couple of sessions (particularly qualifying I must say) they really grew on me. In particular having graphics which sometimes showed the driver’s face, flag, team logo, and number, to make them a bit more than just three letter abbreviations.
I disagree with you in that I like the “driver in danger” aspect; yes maybe it’s a slight gimmick but it’s a little like who’s in the bump zone in Indy 500 qualifying.
It’s been said elsewhere but I don’t like the font and it’s just too small in places. There was a fact at the start of coverage saying only “x” drivers have won from pole in the last 8 years… I have no idea what that number is because on my (admittedly non-HD TV) it was just a blob!
I even liked the intro graphics and music, but am a bit disappointed they’ve got rid of the world map showing locations of all of the races as that emphasised it’s really a world championship.
Overall I’m actually surprised the changes haven’t been more revolutionary – that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but seeing some of the things that Formula E does (e.g. the flashing screen when there’s a yellow flag or safety car) show that they could have been more adventurous if they wanted to be.8th August 2015, 11:26 at 11:26 am #302999
It looks like Vergne’s taking Alguersuari’s spot at Virgin too, alongside Sam Bird. I wonder what that means for the speculation about him getting the Haas F1 drive?31st January 2015, 22:33 at 10:33 pm #291288
Thanks Alex, I’ll give it a go. Anyone else heading to this year’s race?18th January 2015, 12:51 at 12:51 pm #290417
I might as well kick the discussion off in this one – I’m going to be in China in early April and have been wondering about trying fit the Chinese GP into my schedule. I’m travelling with someone who isn’t a massive motorsport fan so we’d only want to go to raceday, but annoyingly I don’t think they sell 1-day tickets (everything is for the entire weekend).
Also the cheapest grandstand tickets have already gone, so it’s a choice between general admission or trying to buy a ticket from a tout outside – any suggestions from people who’ve been before?6th May 2013, 10:47 at 10:47 am #204294
I’ve just bought my gold trio tickets (although the official website claims that they’re sold out, they’re still available on Admission, the Canadian version of Ticketmaster that is the official vendor). Can’t wait! Any plans for an F1 Fanatic meetup?7th January 2013, 8:31 at 8:31 am #223913
I’d be interested in an Xbox championship…
