Formula 1?

Well 1 week from today the first race is on.
I should be there.

Anyone else planning on making it to F1 in thier respective countries? (Or neighbouring countries)

Who do you think is going to take home the title this year?

Im so jealous!!

Maybe someday I can afford to go to F1 race,closest would be Germany or Hungary.

As whos gonna win the championship,as a Finn,I have to say its gonna be Raikkonen or Kovalainen!

If im more realistic,I think its gonna be Raikkonen,Massa or Alonso.

I will try and get some photos for you Tommi

If you could make it to a GP and I was you, I would see if I could go to Belgium, by far my favorite track.

I forgot to ask Tommi, what part of Finland are you from?
I had some room-mates last year that were from Espoo (sp?) - cool guys.

I have gone to three of the past five in Indianapolis. My dad has a friend who buys (or is give to) around 25 tickets each year, and he usually gives my dad two. If my dad needs more all he has to do is ask.

Each time we go we sit in the Paddock by the start finish line and right across from the pits. Its a nice place to sit (shade), but this year if possible I would like to sit at one of the corners.

Sometimes though, I would just rather watch on tv. We have to leave real early on Sunday to make it from Chicago in time, and after the actual start of the race most of us are watching on the monitors anyways.

I'd defiantly recommend it to anyone who had the opportunity to attend.

Managed to sneak out of work today to go down and watch the 2nd practice session.

Looks like the red cars are going to dominate - barring any "incidents".
Bring on Qualifying tomorrow...

lol!

I enjoy watching a good F1 race and that is the problem. Give me a race, not a follow the leader event. Alas, the closest I can get to one is my TV.

I still enjoyed the race though (and I look like a lobster at the moment).

Man, Hamilton - he is going to be a force this season, despite being a 22yr old rookie...
