F1 2012

No F1 fans here?.... :shock:

What you think about the 2012 season? 7 different race winners and the top teen drivers separated only by 60 points?... one of the best seasons I seen on years. :D

I watch it on and off, mainly quali and the first corner. :P

It is much better this year, at least that arrogant cock Vettel isn't winning every race.

I use to work as a C.N.C operator... so I have some interest in the engineering part of F1 .... But I have to agree the races can be a bit boring some times :?

F1 fan here :cheers:

Yes the races can be boring but are great for:

Chilling
Recovering from hangovers
Excuse not to talk to anyone for a couple of hours - especially valuable to family events

Am loving this season, just pissed off at the TV rights situation. Needs to change. Also loving the fact you cannot really pick a winner of the whole thing!

I just cannot get into the F1 this year. The TV rights its extremely annoying.

After taking pole today, Vettel looks to bounce back, is this the end of the interesting season and Red Bulls dominance returns? Tomorrow's first corner will be very interesting.
You think your safe, until you turn a corner i see a massive rocket heading straight for you.........what do you do???

Hamilton's pit crew have been shocking (and continue to be) this season

At least Martin Brundle has gone off to Sky, can't stand the condescending prick. Those track walkabouts really were horrific viewing.

Vettel is something to do with the Renault engine over heating.
Was not Hamilton fault that time....was Maldonado. Maybe some pay back for other times...... :roll:

Is other ways to watch F1 online when is on sky... I can't remember the URL's... let you know tomorrow.

Right.....I try to explain this the best I can.... :?

It's lots of worldwide TV channels that do live online feeds ( similar to BBC Iplayer)... Because Radio5 still does live radio broadcast.. It means that you can watch a F1 live broadcast from another country and use Radio5 for the English commentary. Here is few Urls of such online services:

http://live.vizionplus.tv/IE/
http://www.idmantv.az/canli/idman-canli.htm
http://www.tv3.cat/3alacarta/#/directes/TV3 (Esport3)

You can also check here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Fo ... oadcasters for other similar F1 world broadcasters.

This is 100% legal and you are not breaking the law by doing this. :wink:

I'm very happy that Webber won this race. That he overtook Alonso in the last few laps makes it even better :cheers:

I was really hoping to see some rain to make it more interesting but it was still a good race.
