    yeah i remember seeing that. i thought you meant the radio broadcast that was silenced when he heard about his drive-through.
    i wonder why they were so concerned about saving the engine for a bad alternator

    Who knows, especially with F1 levels of expected perfection, but maybe a lesson learned from the European GP or conflicts with KERS?

    So sick. Makes me want to grow up to be a F1 camera man.

    They don't have batteries (well non-KERS batteries) do they? I'd guess that killing the fuel and oil pumps could have a nasty effect, also not sure where the valves would sit?

    i do believe they have a battery on board, though it obviously isnt there for starting. they are really small which could be why they were concerned (of it running dry and the car completely dying.)
    i suppose you are right since they are probably dry sump and losing power would be an issue. the valves are pneumatic but probably also controlled electrically somehow .

    If you haven't read his book, it's worth a read. If you can't find a copy, pm me and I'll mail you mine as long as you promise to pass it on :D It's a short read, but good.

    Perez to McLaren...didn't really expect that. Sucks to be DiResta, because apparently Massa might be safe. And does Schumacher retire? He must, right? Or does he go to Sauber?

    Crazy.

    Cool I'll pm you when I get to a computer.

    Hamilton to Merc, Schumi out ( maybe sauber) and perez to McLaren....worst kept "secret."
    Massa said he will more then likely be with Ferrari next year and rightfully so. Alonso even said, no one else would/could compare to him

    sh!tty news that Speed is losing their F1 broadcast rights next year and will be going to a all sports format.
    I love listening to Matchett, Hobbs and Buxton...i could do without Varsha i think

    i saw that but didnt see if that was official. they do an okay job broadcasting the Indy car series and a handful of other series. . thankfully we'll still have live broadcasts of races

    What a hell of a race. I might be biased as a Kimi fan, perhaps?

    How about Vettel forcing past Button? That took big balls for a few extra points, a DNF would have been terrible for him. Also, scary scary scary seeing Rosberg go over the top like that.

    was reading an article on how the teams have learned to curse over their in-car transmissions so it doesnt get broadcasted for everyone to hear

    Pretty excited for this race, any way to watch it in the US? I usually just download it, but want to watch it live (in HD, not some terrible web broadcast.)

    I'd like to see Alonso do well, but my money is on Vettal.

    So bummed I couldnt make it to the race this year but I'm looking forward to watching on TV. I hope there are no hiccups here that could trickle down the line and affect the other 2 prospects in North America.

    The last USGP that I was really excited for was in 2005 and, well, that one didn't turn out so well. Like you said, hoping for no hiccups here. Watching the onboards this morning, it looks like a fantastic track.

    its on Speed tomorrow starting at 1:30 as usuall

    i didnt think there was anything else lined up in the US besides the NJ one..if that ever happens.
    i saw the turnout for qualies today and it looked packed, which is awesome. the track and circuit look amazing.


    Excited to see the Diffey, Hobbs and Matchett will be on NBC next year. still hoping that Buxton is the pit reporter

    I didnt know speed broadcasted it, this would be even better if I had it. I guess my comcast account doesnt get it. Should be good to have it on NBC though.

    I knew it was leaving speed, didn't know it was going to NBC. Does this mean they'll time delay every race broadcast though?...

    No. They said they'll have the majority of them live like Speed but will have some time delayed when their air on NBC.


    Speed was saying Ferrari broke the seal to Massa's transmission which earned him a 5 grid spot penalty which moves Alonso to the clean side of the track. I love Ferrari

    man it's a huge deal, i'm only 2 hours away from the track and couldnt watch it on TV. That sucks. What also sucks is I could have gotten in on the $150 tickets but nobody wanted to go that that time. Then just last week the same people got excited about it and paid $1500 to go. I cannot afford. Fvck that.
