I have been watching F1 since the eary 90′s and have only missed a handful of races since then. I always record the races (sometimes the DVR messes up though) and I always watch them live, but sometimes things get in the way.
The most recent I missed was Silverstone this year as I was there, have it taped on my DVR but havent watched it back yet. Before that I only missed Germany 2010 because of a family emergency, Abu Dhabi 2009 as I was called into cover a shift at work. And before that I only missed a few others by a few laps or so when I oversleep for an early morning fly away one. But generally an F1 weekend is dedicated to nothing but F1, I even try to plan things not to clash with the F1 because I love F1!
Hi, Islandf1, I recorded it, and managed to get my DVR to switch channels when recording, so I have Qualifying and the full race (except for a few seconds when changing channels from bbc 1 to 2) recorded, but i havent transfered them onto dvd yet. Happy to help out :)
