Hope this is the right place for this!  Wondering if there are any other members that follow F1, trying to get a season discussion going.  Anybody?

      I like it but mostly know only the main stayers. I would like the schumacher's return but i think being the stig on top gear might have softened him up a bit.

        I've been following F1 for over a decade now and I still enjoy watching it. Definitely my favorite kind of racing. I'm a Ferrari fan so I'll be cheering for Alonso and Massa. Mostly Alonso though cuz Massa sucks lol.  Alonso got lucky at the last race with how the rain played a big roll towards his win. He's leading the drivers championship by 5 points :) but there's still plenty of races to go.

          I try to watch at least a couple of races every season but I used to watch it religiously when I was young. I'm hoping McLaren will come through this year even though I'm not a fan of Lewis Hamilton.

            Ya that Ferrari win was a little surprising.  It's gonna be a good battle between Red Bull and McLaren this year, I'm a Webber fan myself, and if that guy can ever learn to get his car off the line he'll be in good shape!  I'm also rooting for the new Toro Rosso line up, I hope those guys do well.  It's kinda nice that the season hasn't been the Vettel show thus far, seems like he's struggling with the lack of grip from the blown diffuser ban.  Roll on China!

              Huge fan of F1. Im a McLaren fan. Specifically Lewis Hamilton lol. I watch every qualifying session and race. Sometimes if i have time i'll watch a practice or two. Ya most def, Alonso winning the race was quite the surprise. Never thought his Ferrari would be able to stay at the front. Even more surprising was Perez. Too bad he made couple of mistakes at the end or he had a real chance of winning the race. Couldnt believe how fast he was gaining on Alonso towards the end of the race!!

                Wow what a great race at China. I'm glad I stayed up to watch this one. The last 10 laps of the race are definitely worth watching. Loads of action. Not too happy how Ferrari finished but I'm happy for the Mercedes team getting their first win in 57 years :o and happy for Rosberg getting his first win of his F1 career.

                        ya it was such a great race. it all came down to who can manage their tires the best. it was definitely a 3 stop race and people who were on the 2 stop i think had it a bit wrong. It was crazy to see raikkonen fall from 2nd to 10th within a single lap. im glad the mclarens were able to boot the red bulls out of podium lol. Second qualifying session was ridiculously close. Time gap between 1st position and 11th position was 0.3 seconds. Crazy stuff!! Rosberg's Q3 lap was stunning!!

                          Even though Rosberg was in a league of his own, the battle for second and back was awesome!  I love seeing two cars battle for a spot, cock up a little and have the guy two places back make a pass on them.  Good for Rosberg to get a win.  I'm hoping my boy Webber can pull his **** together!

                              Not a whole lot of excitement in Bahrain.  I'm not a Hamilton fan, but I can understand his frustration sometimes.  He does well in qualifying and has great pace but his race is ruined by a bad pit stop, in this case two.  I'm still hoping Webber can improve his pace, but I'm glad he's off to a consistent start, only five points behind Vettel and not finishing on the podium once.  Roll on Barca!

                                  I'm just watching a replay of the Montreal Grand Prix, 20 laps in, what a race! I see that Hamilton won, and deservedly so, so far. He's driving like a man possessed!

                                  I like tracks that have a strait coming out of the pit and allow the pitting driver to get up to speed and fight for position with the drivers on the track, makes for exciting lead changes!

                                      Did anyone watch the European Grand Prix?

                                      I was only able to watch some of qualifying, pretty impressive stuff, everyone was running super fast, those super soft tires looked glued to the ground!

                                          Oh My mistake. Ferrari must have been happy with a W, the boss looked none to happy when they didn't make the cut for Q3 lol

                                            oh ya ferrari had a super ****ty qualifyin. lowest they've ever qualified i think. great race for alonso. everythin fell into place real nicely for him. Great race!! i was jumping around in happiness when vettel stopped on the side of the track. Then was really bummed out hamilton didnt finish 2 laps to go. i hope maldonado gets a grid penalty for the next round. i just hate that guy lol.

                                              Whoa! Big crash on the first turn of the race. Too bad it took out Alonso :(
                                              Anyway it was a good race and I'm glad Kimi got on the podium. Congrats to Button for such an amazing drive and his first win at spa. The first turn crash from Alonso's view is quite amazing too!

                                                Romain crashes and takes out more than one driver once again. Nice jump start from Maldonado too. Good race overall though, it's going to be a good race to the finish as far as championship points go between the top 6 drivers.

                                                  The race was boring for Jenson but there was lots of action behind him.  I watch every race but I usually only cheer for the British drivers unless someone else is sticking it to MSC :)
