have to say that i find it stupidly boring , i like the cars and i like to know whos won and the current standings etc i would even like to go watch it live but watching it on TV for a couple of hours i cant think of many things that are more boring.
Same as golf and snooker , i love playing but when it comes to watching them on tv its just crap lol
Oh and dont get me started on Tennis

They have messed up the scoring IMO and the credit crunch will see the sport fail and disband.
On that 400 million..... How many premiership games could have been brought for that type of cash?
How much do BSKYB pay? I know they cant buy em all due to the rule on monopolies.

Brawn-Mercedes ( Virgin ) are 1 and 2 Ferrari 7 and 9 , so i was a bit miffed with that post - but maclaren-mercedes are 14 and 15 . which was a shock . Ross Brawn is a top class engineer and he will always produce a great car .

Brilliant for Button -i thought he wasn't going to get a car this season and now he's got probably the best car and one of the best if not the best engineers to boot . That branson guy really does have the midas touch , and yes its made me so much more eager to see tomorrows 1st race .

400mill is a steal. Riv i used to hate watching f1 and golf. However now there is not much more i like then falling in and out of sleep on a sunday afternoon with the golf or f1 on.
Unit they decided not to change the scoring in the end which is good IMO. I am excited about the qualifying today. Wicked day for sports! Gonna be home at 2:15. Watch the wales game. Then the grand prix qualifying. Then the england game. Then the 3rd day of golf. Then off to the pub to get smashed!!

glad the didnt change it it was a crazy idea imo.
How can the best overall/ most successfull person not win.

is anyone getting up at 7 to watch
it thats how bad my weekends been im getting up at 7 on a sunday

I got up to watch it , Button made a big gap in front but Nakejima crashed in lap 17 - so the safety car came out . The tyres lose their temperature so Button did well to keep control once the race got back under way . As it happens Piquet spun out when it re-started , there was a bit of a battle going on for 2/3 place and Vettel and Kubitza and they ended up wiping each other out in the last couple of laps so it finished under the safety car . I ended up puttin some music on the fav music thread while the safety car was out . So Brawn had 1st and 2nd places
