Re: Indycar - COTA (Anyone else giving it a watch?)

I get that this is primarily an F1 fan forum, but Indy and F1 are different. So why not enjoy them both?

Re: Indycar - COTA (Anyone else giving it a watch?)

My friends and I were there and it was quite exciting to see. I agree the late caution cheated Power and Rossi, but Herta drove like a star and it was great to see him win. The track limits thing was a bit shocking but in reality I don't think it made any difference because they were all treated th...

Re: Should F1 acknowledge the New Zealand tragedy this weeke

Yep, we can agree to disagree. Why does it have a social obligation to politics? And why only F1? Do you see that in any other shows that gain TV exposure? Do they do a minute's silence on every program televised? Are you outraged that they didn't hold a minute's silence in Britain's got Talent? Do...

Re: Should F1 acknowledge the New Zealand tragedy this weeke

I agree with you. But i think a strong social movement like the "me too" one could be paralleled with a peace movement. I know it is ideological and somewhat contradictory.

Re: Should F1 acknowledge the New Zealand tragedy this weeke

I would like to see F1 adopt a policy endorsing peace and tolerance in general, including perhaps a symbol on the cars etc. Frankly I'd like to see it as a world wide movement. To me that makes more sense than one off responses to tragedies or disasters. The tough part of this sort of thing, is once...

I tried streaming the St Petersburg race, but it was terrible. Where I live the internet is decent, but not good enough for live streaming (the sports channel provider had a ton of complaints so they said they would do 1 race for free). Too bad there isn't any TV option.
