I often read:

The Kimi thread is gold.

Anyone going to Austin USGP?
I expect my assigned sales rep to call me Monday as I'm on the waiting list.

The USGP in Austin is this year (there was a massive flareup over contractual issues, but they have been resolved)

The Grand Prix of America in New Jersey is next year

Might start following F1 again this year. The lineup of cars and drivers looks great, and Schumacher has a chance at another title.

Its a McLaren 1-2, Hamilton, Button respectively. BOOOOO!

Grosjean making a surprising appearance in 3rd.

Raik fails to make Q2, bad start.

Mercedes with some serious pace as well. If it wasn't for little mistakes on their final lap it would be Mercedes 3-4 at least, maybe could of displaced Button.

That Mercedes f-duct is seriously working. Other teams must be scrambling to get one figured out.

Red Bull look to be in trouble!

Or in Lotus + Red Bull's case, scrambling to get it banned

I'm sure Red Bull will be just fine since Newey is too clever to just sit there. Ferrari on the other hand are sort of screwed: no speed, no grip, etc...

Saari atleast has some knowledge, Kyllönen was way too senile during the last few years. Though I do miss the random "They're putting slick weather tires on his car!" etc funny ****.

Shame that JJ has (or is he gone there already..?) to go to prison (+probably won't get a gig in any channel after what he did), I really liked him as a commentator.

From the current line-up, Mustakari isn't too bad, but for the love of god- keep Salo as far away as possible from any race.

Planet F1 has a very active forum, although you have to get through a mod in order to register, the rules of which seem nebulous/arbitrary.

Can't recall the last time when that many crashes happened during the last lap.

What happened with Rosberg&Perez anyway, they didn't show it properly or I missed the second replay?

+Weird that Kobayashi didn't get flagged for driving with a broken rear wing, that could have hit someone in the head or something in the worst scenario..

Kimi team radio:

"WHY DO I GET ALL THE TIME BLUE FLAG?"
"...blue flags are for cars behind Kimi...they're not for you"

Give him a few races to get back into the swing of things.

Disappointing race for Schumy. Gearbox failure.

Great race in the top 4.

According to Rosberg, Perez's front wing clipped Nico's rear tire causing a puncture. Each thinks it is the other's fault so, racing incident.
