the shame of that is... not being able to fast-forward thru commercials.
the upside was watching the on-boards during commercials.

I wonder / hope that NBC does picture in picture during commercials and Mercedes decides to offer live on-boards at a few more tracks

Sucked for me as for the first time in weeks I was staying in a hotel with Speed, but I couldn't watch because it wasn't on at 6:00 am. I was at work by noon so I had to "watch" on my F1 iPhone app.

Wait? You can watch the race on the iPhone app?

Codewife and I really enjoyed that race. We weren't there, unfortunately, but watched it on DVR.

And, it was exciting enough that my in-laws, who watched the race with us (this being their second ever race, the first being Spa this year) have asked us what we're doing to watch Brazil next weekend. Maybe the track earned a few new F1 fans....

Hellmund and Schwantz deserve major Kudos on that layout. I don't know if they knew the topography of the land when they jotted down the now famous sketch, but if so it was a stroke of genius. If not, it was spectacular good luck.

When I was there last summer NASCRAP was in town so I couldn't even ride my bicycle around the island.


After Monza, two USGP's, and parking on the front straight at Sebring, the only thing left on my racing bucket list is a MotoGP at Mugello or San Marino and a MC trip to France bookended by LeMans and the French GP.

Watch in quotes.

The F1 live timing and scoring app features markers for every car. You can "watch" all markers proceed around the track or select a single car.

It's actually really cool to run it while watching a race. You know what that blowhard Varsha is going to say before he says it, because the Moran pretty much just reads the info as it streams in.

Hey now, I like Varsha! I guess he stuck with Speed because he has more than F1 to keep him employed. If NBC loses F1 at the end of this contract, he would risk being out on the street.

That was from what I have read, the issue with the other Tilke tracks, they have just been run by big financiers that don't really understand racing...

This design was done largely by Schwantz and Hellmund, who are both racers.

Ah ha. You mean the way that most of us here watch the Dakar every year! It can be a very exiting way to watch in some weird way.

Did you guys running this app have any issues losing connection during the race? Mine was pretty spotty. Really cool app, but blows through battery power in a hurry!
