Just how...

Its a Jag/Bill game on at 9:30 AM eastern, thats 6:30AM on the west coast. Almost certainly a low ratings game. I think the NFL is using this as a sort of feasibility and technical test. I bet that...

He did say they have a contract till 2020, so they can't really leave, rather someone else can take over for them. Assuming that is true, another team coming in and buying RBR probably wouldn't be...

I haven't quite bought the tickets, now I'm now thinking about turn 9, the 360 view of that turn gives a bit better view. Will talk it over with my brother this weekend, going with him, only person I...

Thanks for the advice guys! I'm going with turn 4, section 2, about 2 thirds of the way up (highest tickets left), in case anyone cares. That series of s curves is my favorite part of the track. I...

Speaking of which, I might be going to the USGP this year. The grandstands are out of my price range. Are any of the cheaper ($299) bleacher seats worth it, or is general admission the way to go?...

Uh, I hardly think of Walkmans as a tech "craze". They were introduced in 1979, the cassette players were popular well into the 90's and the tradename is still being used. And not just for ultra...

No, the last race there was in 2006.

I know I heard somewhere that the track has had some recent updates, and passed inspection by Charlie Whiting.

Yeah, because the organizers cannot sell enough tickets. A crowd of only 52,000 showed up for the race last year, and the organizers are afraid it would be even fewer this year. If I was Bernie I'd...

It was originally supposed to be at the Nurburgring this year. Negotiations with the new track owners fell through months ago.

They could have a sprint race for some points, and then reverse the order for the main race. It'd be entertaining to see the Merc's have to pass every single car in the race.

I wouldn't say that was the most boring race I've ever watched, but I do get why people are complaining. It should be a great battle between Ferrari and Williams for second place. And it seems there...

It looks pretty clear that Sauber and perhaps Monisha have acted in bad faith. IMO they could actually face criminal charges for fraud if the US had jurisdiction. I have no idea about the applicable...

My thoughts on this:
