It isn't the first time this year.

But really, anything to liven up F1. I used to love it but now I can hardly watch it anymore, in fact I find it a good reason not to be at home.

Yeah, I think it happened in Hockenheim as well. But that's really shocking when you have seen the cards driving around the guy running around on the track.

Well, I'm not very much into sport but F1 is ok for me.

Well, maybe he wanted the Toyotas to lead, and he succeeded for a short moment  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Da Matta's still in the lead...
Well, finally something's made an F1 race interesting.
Maybe it's a new rule by Bernie Ecclestone?  Big grin

Last time I remember something like that happening was at Hockenheim (the good old layout, not the new crap) in '99 or 2000. Some disgruntled employee of an auto company or something I think...

The man is reported of doing a peace dance. Annoyingly, ITV decided to have an advert break at the most important stage in the race. Bring back BBC. Angry

I saw that as well. I think a Jaguar was a little bit affected by that funny guy? It's too much to do it at F1, imagine that you were hitted by a car at 200km/h...it's terrible!

Barrichello! yes! he deserves the cham.

Ya, so did RTL here in Germany. Then, when they returned from the break, they pretended it was all live - while I had just seen it a minute or two ago at TF1. Suckers...

That placard reportedly read "Read the Bible. There´s truth in the Bible." But, as one of the commentators wittingly observed, it does not say "Thou shalt run on the track"...

On a side note: how come nobody except the Schumachers can win more than one race this season??!?

F1 the sport with no passing! The was plenty today and if they get ride of silverstone they have taken away the best 2 tracks in the world it and Spa what a great day to be an f1 fan. The British Gp aint going no were after that. DC To win in his McLaren next year though.

P.S how's the Tour de France boring 18 seconds separating the top 3 its great at the moment.

I watched TdF instead of F1 today. Way more interesting, and I don't see anything boring in this year's run for the maillot jaune.

Personally I think it is a good thing that ITV and the German RTL did not show it. In Holland RTL-5 did show it. Thank god nothing happened, but what if the idiot would have been hit? That is not something you'd want to see! Especially at that particular turn since it is a very fast turn!

Yep, and these guys should get the least possible attention, otherwise they are role models for other lunatics.

Anyone know what he was protesting about? Or what his placards said?

They could have saved the running on the track for later. That was the best F1 race I think I've ever seen in my life. They were running like madmen today, how awesome!! I am honestly surprised fiberglass didnt get smashed out there today. Only thing that went was the suspension and man what a way to take that out.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Why I find both Tour de France and Formula 1 boring, despite of the top three being within 18 seconds and 14 points, respectively:

They cycle for like 6 hours, and in the end the two contenders finish with the same time. Nothing has happened. Now, tennis for comparison: the standings change after every point played.

Now, Formula 1: nothing happens for ages, interrupted by short bursts of very exciting intervals. Now what´s my benefit if I see that crash/fuel stop/streaker live? It´s more effective on some summary in the evening.
Knowing me and my luck, I´ll probably be away taking a leak whenever something dramatic happens  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Actually, I take that back. The post soccer game riots tend to be quite exciting.
