I like about 5 minutes of it. The cars are absolutely amazing from a technology standpoint, the racing is flat out boring. Ferrari or Mclaren usually jumps to the lead and stays there unless one of them blow up. Kind of like 1.5 mile NASCAR tracks. I'm getting more and more into the Grand Am Conti series with Porsches, Camaros, Mustangs. I just wish they showed the races more often and the production was better.

Amazing cars, but boring as hell to watch. Australian V8 Supercars are on Speed, much better racing

I did. Loved it and the piting gamble Red Bull team was trying. Loved the drama of the rain. NASCAR is sorta boring.

wut?

4 teams have won 1 and 1 team has one twice with 6 different drivers. monaco is a BORING race because its a very tight and narrow track but ur comment about mclaren and ferrari shows you didnt see what happened last year or whats going on this year.

Your right, I made a blanket comment based on my opinion. F1 has never really caught my attention. I remember when I was working for Audi and this guy was crying because Senna died, I tuned in to see what the hype was about. And when Schmacher retired I tuned in again. It just don't keep my interest, sort of like NHL.
I'd rather watch Le mans or Grand Am where they race identifiable car. In two weeks my uncle is going to Montreal with his friend who is a big F1 fan, my uncle has never seen a race or knows zero about the cars. I hope he has a great time. I'll probably tune in again just because.

Monaco is such a historic race and my dream would be to see that race,
but hopefully I'll get to go to the Austin race this November ��
