Indeed. But not, at any price.


F1 is a complicated and subtle sport. In that lies much of its beauty, if also much of its remoteness from casual appreciation. The widespread failure to appreciate its team aspects being one example of the latter.

Hoping Spielberg makes it beautiful. I'm queasy about Thor as an actor, and in that trailer the CG was really obvious. So I'm having my doubts.

I'm glad you said it. I was feeling like I was the only one underwhelmed by Senna.

Oh no, you're not alone. I thought it was a very unfair hagiography. There was some great archival stuff in it. But it pushed a dishonest message, in my opinion, and completely misrepresented who Senna was.

Two races, two different types of track. It was a great way to find out what was wrong with their cars.

They've had a 3 week break. How much will teams have changed their cars by the time they hit the track on Friday? Will we see a change of form? Will Williams improve on their disastrous start? Will Vettel be forced to wear a dunce's cap all weekend?

Great vid up to the point when he states that his "bum" is where you get all the feelings about the car
I understand what he meant but he should reword it

Thanks. It's so striking how clean is the look of the older cars compared to today's mille-feuille layer cakes. I like the old look better.
