Good race today. Lots of competition in the field especially in the last third of the race.
Shouldn’t take a safety car to make a race exciting.
The safety car is part of the race. Ask Lewis Hamilton about the last race of last season. Also, the good racing wasn't just at the front of the pack. There were several good battles throughout the field.
I never said there wasn’t good throughout the pack?
I’m saying before the safety car it was easily going to be the one of the most boring races I’ve seen in the last 10 years or so
The previous race in Italy was pretty dull.
…Haha, most Indy and NASCAR races are at racetrack ovals but there are some courses that aren't ovals. Did you ever go to Molson Indy Toronto? …
You're quite welcome. I figured there would be at least some interest here.Quote
Anyone else into F1 racing? I've been getting into it the last few years. The first Miami Grand Prix is tomorrow. They did a great job with the track. The race should awesome. Go Ferrari!><
Thanks for starting this thread. I’ve become a huge F1 fan over last 10 years or so (along with wife and daughter); it’s been a retirement diversion. Have attended every race in Austin except for first one, along with x2 Montreal, x3 Melbourne (including 2020 COVID cancellation) and x1 Barcelona. Very enjoyable spectacle. Tend to root for everyone but Mercedes (though very respectful of Hamilton’s skill) and enjoy the midfield battles as much as the race for the podium. Big Kimi fan for years; loved his 2018 Austin win. Also partial to Riccardo as we met him at Allen’s Boots in Austin several years back; real nice guy.
I was a ute (hello, Cousin Vinnie) when I got hooked on F1 racing. Stirling Moss and Jim Clark were my fave drivers. I watched every race I could. Haven't paid any real attention to it in years. The 24 hours of Le Mans was another watch for me. I was all go go go for Carroll Shelby and team Ford/Cobra if I am remembering correctly on back in the day. Ron Howard's movie "Rush" is a good take on the Hunt-Lauda F1 drivers rivalry. Not F1, but there is a movie with the late actor Steve McQueen about the 24 hour Le Mans race. There's also a movie titled "Grand Prix" with the late James Garner and Yves Montand which has footage of F1 drivers of the 1960s. Can't say much for this movie, but it's there. And, than, there's the bs of Ironman 2 at the Monaco grand prix, cinema wise.
(BTW, if you can find it in your local supermarket, there's a mix for Carroll Shelby Chili. Good as is, but throw in some Rotel with habaneros instead of tomato sauce, a splash of this spice, a splash of that, some sauteed onions, and, man, you got some good eatin' scoopin' it all up with tortilla chips. Black beans added to the mix goes well too.)
