    Why is Nasr coming back? He’s done a decent job in GP2 this year – I don’t think a Macau win helps him much. A loss wouldn’t look so good on his CV.

    A shame Juncadella is still in F3 after winning last year. I thought he would’ve managed to find a way up after that. Could he do the double just like Mortara did in 2010/2011?

    Am guessing the winner will be driving a Carlin. Will go for da Costa.

    I thought Andrea Moda was making a random return then!

    I hope Felix da Costa wins it this year. He was rather unlucky last year with that gearbox failure right at the start.

    Is the Macau race live streamed online anywhere? I’d love to watch it if possible. It’s a great event that doesn’t get enough exposure or coverage, at least here in the U.S.

    Even Macau itself doesn’t get enough exposure, few people know that it was both the first, and last European colony in Asia. A fascinating place.

    Wow – do Costa, Nasr, Juncadella, Marciello, Serralles, Korjus and Jaafar in one race?

    I’d be happy if any of them won it.

    Also, Da Costa and Korjus are supposed to be doing an F3 race at Snetterton before then as a warm-up.

    A fascinating place

    If brothels and casinos are your thing, absolutely.

    Love Da Costa’s and Abt’s liveries. Hoping Da Costa has better luck than last year.

    Is there going to be any TV coverage for the race?

    Can’t wait! It’s a great race with lots of potential for drama and intensity. And a really challenging circuit.
    And hasn’t it been after the F1 season had ended in recent years?
