If your interested, did you look at it when it was in the US? What was the general reaction on it?
I'm a cart fan as well, but F1 comes first.
Is it the same for you US citizen, but the other way around?
My favourite in F1 is Mika Häkkinen.
And in Cart it's Kenny Bräck. I'm swedish so.....!



When in doubt, flat out!

F1 is BORING!!!!
Sorry, but I prefer NASCAR and sometimes CART. And I started to watch the Moto Grand Prixes, there are almost always pretty close finishes and many passes.

I LOVE F1

...My favourite is Michael Schumacher...but my ultimate hero is(was) Senna. Sad that he is not around any more  Crying

Well my favourite team as such is the McLaren....but looks like this year something is wrong with their cars.

It's more like that BMW Williams for ex. is getting back in business. And Montoya is doing a great job I must say.
BAR will become a hell of a team when they are done dealing with there "childsicknesses".
I also think it's a shame Mika will quit, but if it can make him get his will back, it's good. Anyone knows who will take his seat next year?

Nascar is more closer racing, and fights. In F1 it's a very big difference between the teams.

I'm not sadistic or anything, but if there is anyone who has a file with Sennas accident, please send it to me.
Have not seen what really happend.



When in doubt, flat out!

Biiiig Formula 1 fan. I have always liked Ferraris, and I am a fan of Schuey. To me though, it is of secondary importance who wins the race. The battle!! is the fun part.

Next season, Michael Schumacher, Ralf Schumacher, Juan Pablo Montoya, David Coulthard, Rubens Barichello, and possibly Kimi Raikonen are all going to be highly competitive drivers in highly competitive cars. It will be an exciting season to say the least. It won't be simply dominated by my favorite team  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I like Hakkinen, and Schumacher in F1. I watched the U.S. Grand Prix, and try to watch other races, but don't see a lot beacuse they are live, and I'm not up early enough to see them.  Sad

Kenny Brack is AWESOME in cart this year!!! He's leaving Rahal at the end of the year to drive for Chip Ganassi. (In case you didn't know)

Anybody like IRL or NASCAR?

The European races start at 8:00 A.M. EST, qualifying starts at 7:00 A.M. EST. That's not that early! And its only every other week.

BTW, NASCAR sucks.

I have to disagree with you Sudden - I think that NASCAR is boring and F1 is great! Then again I respect all racing drivers - I think I'd like NASCAR more if I saw more of it so I could get into the races more. Nice to see someone thinking positive thoughts about BAR though.

Senna... well, look at my user name and figure out how I feel! http://www.cineca.it/HPSystems/Vis.I.T/Researches/Senna/movies/out5.mpg should get you to a video FlyingHigh@tom. It's a HUGE file of in car telemetry IIRC. http://www.ayrton-senna.com also makes good reading.

Zbeeblebrox74 - Schuey??? Can't deny he's the best of the drivers in good cars at the moment, but I think next year he may get taken down a peg or ten.

How many of you guys get your feeds from ITV anyway? It's gonna be a sad race in a way at Suzuka - first race of non-Murray Walker-ness :-(

Was it Formula 1 or NASCAR that had to cancel or postpone a race because the drivers were complaing about the g-forces they felt in the turns and then the officials had to contact NASA? I know it was as recent as 2 months ago.

I have followed F1 since 1969 and it is now boring. The only overtaking is done in the pits. The rule that requires back marker to move over to let the leaders through should be scrapped. If the leaders had to fight their way through, there would be a chance that the lead would change hands. At the moment it is just follow my leader.

To call it the World Drivers Championshipis a joke. To win the World Championship you need to be in the right team at the right time. Shumacher would never had got to be World Champion if he had been with Minardi (no disrespect to Minardi). There was more competion when a majority of the teams had Cosworth engines. Then at least, everybody had the same amount of power. These days to be sucessful you need money and to attract the money you need to be sucessful. Its catch 22.

Give me CART any day for interesting racing

indeed it will be, his commentary is going to be missed. Ferrari is my team, and Schumacher is my favourite driver.

"The rule that requires back marker to move over to let the leaders through should be scrapped. If the leaders had to fight their way through, there would be a chance that the lead would change hands. At the moment it is just follow my leader."

I agree, it should really be changed, but I still love my Formula 1.

Formula 1 is boring compared to NASCAR and Cart!?? Are you for real. Formula 1 doesnt involve doing 100s of laps of an oval track that is only interesting to watch 2 laps of. But overall I must say JGTC and V8 Supercars are more interesting than any other event.

Senninha, Glad to know that some one out there shares the same feeling about Senna. Thanks a lot for the mpg and the website...but unfortunately i could browse the site but not understand a word:-(

Vc-10, true today's F1 depends more on the team and the car rather than the person who drives it, but still you have some stellar performances where the driver triumphs.

Senna for one, won the championship in 1993 despite being in an underpowered McLaren Ford (as against Prost's powerful William's Renualt). we will continue to have such performances from today's drivers...but of course it is becoming a rarity.

Cheers,
Thomas.

Don't get me wrong, I used to be a major fan of F1 but these days it's just boring.

Another good thing about CART is when a Pit Stop happens you can actually see what is happening. In F1 the car just disappears behind about 15 people.

Firstly, FlyingHigh@tom - the ayrton-senna.com was the one I said is interesting reading - that should be English. The other one is just for the video. It's the stuff recently released by the Italian courts.

Nice to see another fan. Too many people seem to have forgotten him recently.

Didn't Prost win in '93? Senna got his last WC in '91 - that said he had some GREAT races in '93 - Donnington for example - that was REAL driving.

To all you NASCAR people. It's hard following it in the UK as the coverage is terrible. We have a couple of general motorsport shows that tell you what's going on in non F1 series / formulae / whatever, but usually they focus on Formula Ford / F3 / F3000 / BTCC etc. Nascar just doesn't figure :-(

On a similar note, what about this Premier 1 idea? Do we really NEED another competition?


25 Senninha : Firstly, FlyingHigh@tom - the ayrton-senna.com was the one I said is interesting reading - that should be English. The other one is just for the video
26 SUDDEN : Looks like I started a B v A here. Well, I can't say that Schumi is my favourite, but does anyone remember how the Ferrari was when he got to the team
27 Senninha : Eek! Double post. (note to self: don't hit refresh if the page doesn't load first time. It makes you look thick.) Got to admit Schu pulled Ferrari up
28 VC-10 : Shumacher Senior is a good driver but he let's himself down when he attempts to disable other cars in for him to win a world championship. i.e. Hill &
29 LY744 : It is going to be tough to score any points while starting from the 11th place on the grid. Still, I hope Alesi will give a good fight, and who knows,
