@umartajuddin That is the main question. I think there is enough interest in general, but I am willing to bet that a good amount of people would hesitate to buy a monthly subscription. I would probably prefer a system where users can buy access to an individual race (for a small fee, maybe less than $1), or a season of races (like the 2010 F1 season, for example) for a larger (maybe about $8?) fee. This way customers aren’t turned off by having to commit to a monthly subscription that they may or may not use. Just an idea.23rd October 2014, 12:52 at 12:52 pm #280162
I think this is a great idea and I am pleasantly surprised that the FOM are willing to do this.
I like going back and watching old races from non-F1 series in the winter especially, and I often wish I could go back and watch a memorable F1 with English commentary.
Another suggestion: Try to add MotoGP. Similarly to F1, they have basically no races up on YouTube and/or the really sketch sites.12th October 2014, 23:25 at 11:25 pm #278653
Rosberg on Bottas for 2nd into T2.6th October 2014, 17:17 at 5:17 pm #277341
That was absolutely horrific. The marshals were lucky to avoid being killed.6th October 2014, 0:41 at 12:41 am #277297
My earliest memory of F1 is the start of the 2005 United States GP. And even though you would think that farce would turn people off, for some reason it got me interested (I must have thought ‘how can the pinnacle be so messed up?’). I was already a NASCAR and casual IndyCar fan at the time, but since about 2009 I have been F1 crazy and forgotten NASCAR in the process.21st September 2014, 20:24 at 8:24 pm #275641

@pezlo2013 Yeah, their system is almost too complex, but that is sort of what I was thinking of when I said that.
Btw, I run FIRST Motorsport.8th September 2014, 17:04 at 5:04 pm #2740637th September 2014, 19:47 at 7:47 pm #273941
***POTENTIAL BTCS SPOILER***
@mathers The final drivers championship standings are wrong. At the very least McNamara and Sral’s totals are wrong (Sral should have 4 points, our team should have 9 & McNamara’s race 3 result wasn’t added to his).
Those races had a whole lot of incidents, retirements, and safety cars. I’m just glad both of my drivers finished each race and picked a some points along the way. Hopefully the Fiesta will be a bit faster at Donington and/or Thruxton. Those Peugeots looked pretty strong in all races.6th September 2014, 18:29 at 6:29 pm #273754
Well, Sral and Bunn are a bit further down than I had hoped, but I don’t think that Brands suits the Fiesta that well. Hopefully they can get a few points in the first couple of races and get a good starting position for race three on the reverse grid.
@mathers I like the look of the report and graphics look great. Please tag me in future race/qualifying posts.2nd September 2014, 21:53 at 9:53 pm #273168

@mathers Okay, thanks for the quick reply. I am looking forward to the series!2nd September 2014, 12:53 at 12:53 pm #27314614th August 2014, 19:14 at 7:14 pm #270487
He doesn’t know how to defend either.
When one person is a common factor in so many incidents that indicates a lack of wheel-to-wheel racing
ability. He often shuts the door “after the horse’s head is already halfway through,” (David Hobbs) and proceeds
to blame his opponent. Just look at his incident in Hockenheim this year, he chopped across Magnussen. Or look at
2011 India with Hamilton. And his start in Suzuka 2010 wasn’t much better.
How many times have we seen him get minor damage on his wing or a puncture on the first lap? It seemed like it was
happening every race for most of 2011-13. The pathetic thing is he never takes responsibility for his actions.
Hamilton will say “My bad, man.” Alonso will say “I didn’t leava tha space.” But not Massa.
And in regards to Singapore 2013, even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes. It was a good overtake, but just about every driver makes a good overtake at some point (except maybe Maldonado).7th July 2014, 4:25 at 4:25 am #265953
Qualifying is certainly not pointless. As mentioned above, Silverstone is not too hard to overtake at in its modern form. At tracks such as Austria we saw just how hard it was to overtake.
If qualifying is useless then why has it been two seasons since we saw a winner start from outside of the top ten (Alonso – Valencia 2012)?
And there are still plenty of recent examples of good defensive drives.
Hulkenberg at Korea last year stands out to me. Then there is Michael at Monza 2012. Or Lewis in Bahrain on worn tyres this year.
Or Lewis in Spain. In Spain Lewis beat Rosberg because he began the race in front. If Rosberg had pole he would have probably won that race.
