BUT, if you're interested enough in this to look here, you should be aware of when practice/qual/race takes place and if you haven't seen either of those.... simple enough: don't look in here.



Did anyone watch this yesterday morning? How insane...

this has been the #1 topic on every car website i think but, yes, that was a great race. glad to see new faces on the podium. too bad about kubica's dq

i once read an article in which someone swore he thinks that bernie has a "randomness" button that he presses once everyone *thinks* they know how the season will end.... he must've been tapping the button like a mad gamer on sunday

I must be the only one that missed the race. First time this year I missed the race and sunday replay. Anyone have a replay?

Nope, you're not the only one Chris.
A couple of my co-workers couldn't stop talking about it this morning. Looks like I missed a good one.

The only thing that could have made this race anymore enjoyable would be if my lady was giving me head during it.

It was that good.

This was the first race of the year that I didn't catch the entire practice/quali/race. My TiVo is no more. The look on Button's face said it all. Even he was suprised.

Now I feel bad for talking it up.

Qualifying was pretty insane too.

Scott Speed? WTF. He stinks, no?

while fun at first, it becomes distracting and you end up missing half the race... even though she'll insist you watch the tv

i think scott speed has simply become the token american that gets to be in f1.... haven't seen any progress from him. i'm just keeping my fingers crossed that the polak does well.

Kubica had a good debut, despite the DQ. He qualified pretty well and drove a good race in horrendous conditions. }{, your countryman did you proud!

BTW, that was the most exciting race of the year. I don't understand what happened to Kimi... it sure looked like he got distracted by de la Rosa in his mirrors and stopped watching where he was going.

Speed had a great run going until he decided to change to dry tires. The race engineers should have talked him out of that. Dumb move at that point in the race. He's definitely not the smartest driver out there... but it is still fun to have an American in F1, even if he struggles to beat Sato.
