You start cheering on a Force India running in third until a front runner smashes into it having thought the blue flags were for him.

You go into the laptop repair shop and ask if they can please prioritise your laptop because that's the one with SkyGo on it, and it's GP weekend.

This was on the old one as well:

When you tilt your head when driving round corners.

Plus, one I noticed myself doing driving the other day:

Driving as close to the wall as possible - there's a corner near where I live with a wall right at the side of the road, I always manage to hit the drians but never my wing mirror (yet!) Look at the street view and swing the camera around, you'll see what I mean!

1. Right after every race u switch on your PS3 to play F1 on the track that the GP had just taken place. And you'll switch on that PS3 no matter how boring you had found it to be lately :lol: .

2. When you watch every repeat of the GP that's just taken place.

1)when you see letters on vehicle number plates and instantly translate them into initials, then in to driver names ...eg MW56 - Mark Webber!

2) you put off meeting a friend because it clashes with a GP - and if you have to meet them, conveniently drag them into a pub to watch the race!

I really don't want to know what fantasies you might have about F1 drivers ...
Don't think Fernando is anyway looking or acting like a woman. Would you like your wife to be/look like him perhaps?

i really speed up, keep in the slip stream until the very last moment and then overtake, on the rare occasion you get a Vettel Narin moment which is embarassing :blush:

When you turn down "coffee" on a Saturday night date because it's an early morning race weekend.

True story! The girl at the time thought I was respecting her as a woman, and we are still going strong 6 years later. :)

Hire a Ferrari and drive to the Italian lakes, then a few nights in Milan, and coupled with Grandstand weekend tickets to the Italian Grand Prix - C'mon! This would be an awesome Honeymoon!

For the guys and gals in the US.

When we get tired of the commericals on Speed TV, then we go on the internet and stream it. Then have both on at the same time to make sure we do not miss one piece of the race.

Wake up on time for the race, but not for school the next day. :nod:

When your friend sends you this article http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/ ... rhome?lite and neither of you want to admit that you think it looks like Schumacher because you're trying really hard to discuss something other than F1.

When you believe that when you are commuting, and you no longer go for a gap that exists... then you are no longer a true commuter driver.

When you think of your drive to and from home as in and out laps.

When your friend buys new tires and you ask if they are options or primes.

When you compare US political figures to paddock personalities.

When you try to guess what actors would play which drivers in a movie about F1.

When everyone knows not to bother inviting you to the party because they know its a race weekend and you'll be staying home to watch the live feed at 2am.

When your first thought when it starts pouring rain on the highway is "safety car".

When your best girl friend, who knows nothing about cars, understands how the DDRS works because you like to explain F1 technology when wasted.

Guilty of all of this in the last few months :(

When you cut yourself off from internet, TV and radio entirely for a 3 week trip abroad in a region where F1 can't be broadcast live but does receive plenty of English news. I even managed to avoid results when I returned back to the UK.

That was a bumper week of sport, 2 GP's prerecorded and then I watched the British GP live. Happy days!
