Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

I'd love to check out an F1 race while I'm here in Zurich - which track is closest? I'd prefer rail but have a car also

This year the German GP is at Nürburgring, Nuerburg not Hockenheim, so Italy will be the better choice.

Damn- the in-laws may be here during Monza! Can I get a note excusing me? Nürburgring might be a better bet for me ...

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

So, Brundle/Coulthard:

http://sniffpetrol.com/2011/01/11/cr...s-a-promotion/
http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/88930

"I won't give him gormless questions like, 'oh that right rear tyre looks a bit odd doesn't it David'. We'll discuss it among ourselves. We will agree, disagree, we will throw to the pit lane and we will tell the story of F1."

I think that it could be a very insightful commentary and possibly very funny.

Comments?

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

I thought Hulkenberg would get a drive considering he managed to nab a pole position!

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

I find this site useful for information (along with Planet F1, F1 offical site and BBC Sport/F1)

http://www.autosport.com/f1/

On the main page you'll see the launches & testing (on the left), plus race calender (on the right) and news (in the middle).

They will also have a 'live' commentry from testing.

Hopefully will be a 'cracking' season and in HD too. I hope the practices are also in HD and 'normal' schedule rather than the 'red button' then I can record it to watch whne I get home.
