For anyone with GA tickets I would recommend showing up early as GA is not very good in Montreal, the hairpin is where everyone goes, so go early, pick your spot, and don’t move once you have it.
I am not really surprised by the lack of media coverage of the problems in Montreal (the students are protesting a modest raise in tuition) as this problem has been hurting ticket sales, but yet not a real issue (unlike Bahrain). It’s an insignificant issue, however these kids are also being backed by union groups and anarchists, and therefore there should be some concern and caution, but I would overall ignore everything they say and do.
If you have not purchased tickets but are thinking about it still, do it over the phone, as even the promoter has recommended this. Someone pretending to be part of the Anonymous hacking group stole a few hundred peoples information, and emailed threats to them not to go. It is most likely not that group, as they don’t focus on small issues and threaten violence, but I would warn people to be aware that there are a few small groups of idiots trying to mess things up.
If you see someone with a red square, just think of them as a terrorist, as that is the symbol of the movement.17th March 2012, 14:34 at 2:34 pm #196030
The lead commentator is way to excited, yelling all the time about nothing special… yelling in P3, yelling with 5 minutes left in q3 about a lap time which won’t matter… terrible, I want to hear cars not an annoying commentator.26th March 2011, 22:18 at 10:18 pm #164937
Ian Phillips must have been the one that I didn
t like, only guessing based on a quick google of Ian, but while watching the coverage, he sounded like someone who had been around F1 for a long time, and I just thought his comments were pointless, P1, P2 used to be fun to watch with fun commentary, Ian seemed to be trying to be so serious.... its only practice Ian, relax! :)26th March 2011, 22:03 at 10:03 pm #164958
I didn`t mean to marginalize anyone else at Redbull, I just feel with the March, Williams, and McLarens that he has developed, he should get first billing ;)26th March 2011, 21:56 at 9:56 pm #164713
Cant compare drivers per generation, any driver before the 90s is a mile better than any driver today, since they drove on hard race tracks in a car that if you made a mistake, you died. Now you make a mistake, the computer fixes the problem, and worst case you hit a wall with 70G of force and walk away, and most of the current tracks are made for kids and the PS3`s.
Who is best of that time, hard to say, stats are pointless, unless I know how many people he raced against, and how dominant the car he drove was.
When I look back, I like Lauda the best, his forth place in Monza after returning from his crash at the ring was epic.. that is my only reasoning ;)26th March 2011, 21:38 at 9:38 pm #164934
I enjoyed Brundle, but P1, P2 commentary from whoever the new guy was, was idiotic, comments like if Schumacher beats Rosberg, it may be the end of Rosbergs F1 carear… hahaha, yes when a 7 time champ beats you, you suck…. wow. it was the endless stupid comments from whoever that was that makes hope that the BBC does cut F1 because of money. Thet guy sounded like he was an ex-team owner or something, but seriously, Jordan is all the colour commentary I need.26th March 2011, 21:28 at 9:28 pm #164956
RedBull has Newey, McLaren has no one, and all they proved is that they are quick at copying Neweys design. Seriously, a team that had all winter to develop a car, failed, and then copied someone else, not sure why you are comparing McLaren to RedBull, RedBull are leaders, McLaren are tuggers.26th March 2011, 21:16 at 9:16 pm #164974
Well I put Webber on pole with a 1:24.288. close, if those punks Vett and Hamy would have keep their cars parked! :P
