Those kind of Finnish rates were when the races were available in free channel (live) and when we had success with Mika or Kimi. When Kimi was rallying and out from F1 the ratings were bad.

F1 is just too "global" for americans and there isn't enough USA races in the calendar and most importantly no USA driver(s) and a succesful one(s).

Ecclestone is drooling after Danica but Danica doesn't give a damn about the F1 circus.

F1 can live without USA but it would be cool that if it would gain more popularity there. Making "the circus" even more powerful.

As well... that always sounds the same to me when the BBC (I think) commentators are talking.

Funny stuff though.

Also kinda funny because SKY Sports' Anthony Davidson just showed after qualifying how well Sutil stayed out of the kerbs compared to his teammate Di Resta...

Dumb decision to go on the mediums there by Red Bull.

This is hilarious. This race is already approaching GP2 level derpage.

Webber *gasps* actually gains positions at the start.

Alonso cucumbering himself out of the race.

FI screwing SUTILOL and his joke of a teammate in one go.

Hamilton goes H.A.M. into the McLaren pit.

Toro Rosso sending Vergne right into Pic.

Massa getting owned by a customer Ferrari. At least he's used to it in Malaysia.

It's got an interesting phase now with Webber, Vettel, and Hamilton all within a second of each other in the top three.

"He's too slow, get him out of the way!" - Vettel about Webber.

McLaren's pit team is usually the fastest, but there's the cost of it... They tend to make these lethal errors at least 3-4 times/season.

This race is hilariously good. Glad I woke up early to catch it.

From Hamilton driving into the wrong pit, to the Merc and RedBull teammate battles, just a great race.

And oh ya, some guy named Alonso is out.

Hulkenberg's defensive driving against Kimi deserved a penalty by the way.
