Either that, or you may have to get to like watching cars racing round and round in circles.

Nuts to that!!!

I got jipped as well. Having thought that i wouldn't be able to find a channel showing it, I decided to just see the results online. About an hour later whilst surfing the channels I came across the SPEED channel and managed to catch the podium at the end.

At least I can see it now. Might still just DL it so I get the good commentary.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Oh so you mean having your main driver as someone who consistently DNFs due to collisions is a bad idea? Who'd have thought

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Watching my 1st F1 Quali from the US. Had to go to 5 live for commentary though

I wonder if I can listen to DC and Brundals commentary somehow?

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Great to see Schumi up at the pointy end of the race again. Shame his car isn't good enough yet to stay there.

Nice of him and Button to give Shammy driving lessons during the race

Good 2nd for Button and glad Alonso kept 3rd....

Roll on Singapore.

Luckily I had the Iplayer giving me the BBC race feed with DC and Brundall.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

I see the Kimi "Will he won't he" rejoin F1 has started again. This time it is Williams that may be considering him at the expense at poor Barrichello.

Not happy that the Red Baron decided to go airborne I must say.

So Vettel only needs 1 point to win at Japan regardless what happens behind him. (that's what I heard, haven't checked that.)

This year has been a disappointment compared to last year. It's a competition for second place now and I don't really care about second place

We got the same number of points this week...well he got 1 more.

In my defence I didn't have internet access so couldn't bump shamee out for button or Vettel.

I've been really impressed with Button this year.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Vettel finally makes it 2 in a row for the WDC.

Great race from Alonso and Button. Nice to see Shumi keep 6th.

Only a week until the next race

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

I'm really glad for Button. He's really showing shammy how it's done

I'm just hoping that someone can challenge RBR next year. I don't think vettel would be as good if it wasn't for his car.

Yeah, Button is showing himself as the true No1 Mclaren driver this year and good luck to him. A great ambassador to the sport.

I was talking to the other half earlier and mentioned that it used to be great in Quali 3 when the last few seconds were breathtaking seeing who would pip the other for pole. Let's hope it comes back next year.
