    They were only example questions, u cna post ur own!

    As for F1 it rocks I am in the uk also and up for the qualifying/race.

    Bit of a ferrai buff myself, would like to see schuuy do it again, but I think this season is going to more open now with the introduction of the new qualifying regs, should open up the grid and also the race.(never seen a starting grid like the one in Oz before)

    The new regs will make a huge difference in terms of strategy, would not be surprised if we see alot more of the BAR team this season.

    Also, yep I think montoya has the style to come through although he screwed up in Oz.

    Still should be an interesting season, not going to be a one horse race.

    We could do with female F1 drivers so we can see them get wet and sticky with champers after the race.(apologies to female members, slight sexist statement).

    Anyone see qualifying today. Looks like the cars running bridgestone tyres are gonna struggle tomorrow.

    Can't believe Alonso got the pole. He must have a very low amount of fuel in his car.

    Hope Montoya wins!!!

    Nascar more than F1, I actually don't enjoy professional sports all that much period. I'd rather be playing myself though baseball and football are very enjoyable around playoff time.

    I always used to watch Nascar but I can't seem to find it on TV any more. Great F1 race today though. I was dissappointed when Montoya had to pit and ended up 2-3 laps behind the rest of the pack. An interesting race none the less. I'm happy that Raikonnen got his first win today.

    hell yes i get up at 6am every sunday that there's a F1 race on. i live 30 miles from Indianapolis so i get to see that race live. the track kinda sucks, but hey, it's F1 live so the sounds are all that matters. my friend actually lives right acrossed the street from the front doors of the track, i say everyone comes to the race in september and we meet at my buddy's house and have a big party!!! he wont mind i'm sure. Ferrari rules - Tufosi forever!!!

    Hey darthnip, I'm in the UK how much are tickets for indianapolis grand prix, I've heard it's very reasonable compared to the prices of the British grand prix, bloody rip off over here?

    Yep chriso, schuy screwed it up, excellent now though, last 2 races have proven that the regs for qualifying is having an effect on the outcome on race day.

    just could do with a let up on the bloody adverts though, too frequent, lets see some more action LOL

    you can get in the infield and walk all around inside it for $20. i mean the infield of the big oval, not the inside of the road course. they got a grass hill lining the outside of the road course that provides a pretty good view. hell you can get a 3 day pass for $50!! quite reasonable i'd say, especially since i can drive there in 25 minutes :)

    Thats well cheap, ur lookin at near £80-£100 just for race day here, just for mediocre tickets. (approx $160).

    Bugger it, see if I can get a cheap flight to indy.
    Really want to see a grand prix but not the british one, think I'll treat myself.

    cheers lol

    I hope u all are to be tuning in for this afternoons qualifying?

    And more importantly, cracking open a cold couple for tomorrows race?

    Weather could be a factor, this weekend, hope not.

    Looks like the Bridgestone runners are the favs

    Come on Ferrari, get ur thumbs out of ur ass and lets see a 1-2 finish.

    BRUM BRUM

    JORDAN, what more can i say!!!!

    at least the result for Brazil was changed to make up for the insane musings of the officials over there

    i hope that Fisi and Firman can score some more points. i truly beleave that this team deserves them..

    As for going to the races, as i am living here in Ireland, i am sorry to say that i dont really get a chance to go.. ah well, someday i might!

    and so say all of us.

    Totally agree, fisichella deserved the win, bloody ron dennis is such a bad loser, he has always got a problem, even when HIS team wins, bloody cretin.LOL

    I am a ferrari fan, but it is nice to see the new regs have brought more teams to the front of the grid.
