I’m in the Caribbean, almost all races starts at 8am local time, so no much time for a ritual but to set alarm at 7:30am, wake up, turn TV on, turn computer on, log on F1Fanatic Live blog, Log on the formula1.com live timing , and look for news, and a BBC feed. A friend and my brother comes joins from near apartments. Wait for the lights, And we are off!!
The big problem comes for races at Japan, China, and Korea , they start at 2am local time. Some times I wait, some times I sleep early and wake up by that time. But Korea was an odyssey to watch because of the delays, it ended at 5am!!
