Default F1 at CotA 2012

First practice is already over. 2nd practice starts in an hour and a half. Speed has coverage and Formula 1? - The Official F1? Website has live timing, or free F1 2012 iphone/android/blackberry app has live timing.

Wish I could go but didn't have the money and Do NOT want to deal with the crowds this year. I'll probably go to the Aussie V8 supercars in the spring though. But no F1 for me until Austin and CotA get everything streamlined.

Who's watching!?

I missed P1 because I'm at work and was.... actually working, go figure. And I'll miss P2 because I'll be in a class, RAWR!!!

Kool thanks for the link, I hope this race will be as good as the last, more Kimi radio action would be fun.

I was surprised to see this topic, not many people in the states follow f1. I'm sure that has to be torture living in Austin and not going, I was thinking about going but wasn't up for the drive from ga. I honestly don't see kimi winning again and him getting on the podium isn't very likely. Not to take anything away from them, but he won because of a perfect storm. Should be exciting!

The bad part is the huge influx of people. Traffic is a bitch, all sorts of roads are closed because of street fests they are having downtown. I was offered a ticket to the race by a friend of a friend, and I almost regret not taking it, but I'll just watch it in the warm embrace of my couch this year.

And ya, lots of people even in town have no idea WTF is going on, it's shocking.
Yesterday one of my professors was bitching about traffic and noise and people and at least 3 people were like huh? is something going on this weekend?? -_- yes.... F1... What's F1? -_______-

LOL, sad the average American does not know about the most expensive motorsport in the world.

Too many turns for the avg. NECKCAR fan

Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know what to do! EPIC!

It'll be a coin toss on whether Hamilton's car makes it without a mechanical failure.

I've got to give it up to my man Vettel though and the Red Bull team...a 2.6 second 4 wheel change? How the hell do they manage that?!?! The way the man conserves tires, yet manages to gap the field if on poll on the first couple of laps is amazing!

I wonder what nickname this hill will soon be called?

I bet Grosjean hill since he has been wrecking a lot lately, some his fault some not.

But he has [email protected] luck.

Skip the first year. That's usually the time when everyone goes to see what the hype is, without knowing what the sport is. Second year onwards, you get the true die-hard fans, and the people who enjoyed the first year. The crowd will be much better.

There is sound logic there.

Happened in my country too. The first year, there were way too many wannabes, stupid celebrities who were looking for attention from the media, etc. The second year onward, the crowds might've gone down a little. But you get true motorsport fans.

That's ridiculous that the biggest motorsport in the world is coming to town and people are clueless. By the way they have been calling the hill "phil hill". Anybody have a favorite for the race?

Yeah Vettal is who I have been rooting for, but it would not break my heart to see Kimi win the last two races.

Exactly my thoughts. But it's sooo hard lol, my g/f's dad had an extra ticket for the race and my roommate had an extra ticket for qualifying. It was REALLY had to turn down free tickets but I'm sticking to my guns..... Next year

If I'm not mistaken they are calling it fill-hill. because they had to dig out the straight and they used the backfill to build up turn 1.

Haha no. It's called the Phil Hill; named after the first American F1 World Drivers Champion.

Watched Qualifying on Speed Channel, there was a lot of celebrities in and on the paddock.

Maybe next year it'll be less about celebrities and more about racing.
