Formula 1

Do any of you all watch Formula 1 racing? I love to watch it, just got done watching the race this weekend in Monoco, which is one of my favorite courses. It looks like the new Brawn GP team that bought out the Honda team and B. Button could win it in the end, with Ferrari and Maclarin not doing so hot. Hamilton is getting off to a really tough start also.

I like formula one when they use manual instead of automatic now.

The new double clutch 'automatics' are faster.

The cars are so fast now, that with a regular manual it would be impossible to shift up or down quickly enough.

I watch every practice, qualifying, and race on DVR. Saw Monaco at 11:30 PM last night after getting home from working. I'm a Ferrari, Braun, and RBR fan. My wife is a Raikonen and Hamilton fan. She loves Kimi's eyes and love to hear him talk and she think Hamilton's a pretty boy.

I unfortunately have no access to F1 broadcasts at this time. But I have been a fan since birth and the best F1 was before all these appliances were stuck on the cars. I hope all the teams pull out of the Bernie and Max show next year.

Twenty years ago, although the gear boxes were sequential, drivers had to take their right hands off the steering wheel to shift.

Nowadays, the cars basically drive themselves.
