In my view, I’d prefer hyping-up to be kept to the build-up of a race. But once the lights go out I’d like to be told what’s happening.
Commentate on the race you have, not the race you want.
Part of me thinks this has to do with F1’s commentary being tailored towards its more mainstream following.
Like Football’s “Can they keep this lead, with…[Read more]

Crofty “hyping up” things is exactly the reason why the austrian duo Hausleitner+Wurz could become what is now probably the best race-coverage available (at least within the languages I understand). British coverage is consistently falling towards the extremely low standards of german RTL/Sky-coverage (and the fact that it can fall towards that…[Read more]

Last few years I was always able to print them yet now also had to pay for a fancy delivery… I don’t get that.
If it’s anything like Silverstone or Dubai they’re shipped well on time though.

Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone had an experience of when Spa ship out their tickets? I’m flying from Singapore and ideally would like to fly a week before the race but the website says tickets will be shipped one week before race! I don’t know now when to book my flight for as don’t want to miss my tickets arriving and not being able to go.…[Read more]
Could it be Bob Sweikert? All 3 drivers are grand prix winners who retired from racing in the order of the sequence and the last grand prix winner to retire from racing before Piero Taruffi is Bob Sweikert.

I can’t stand “hyping”, it’s transparent and actually detracts from the genuine enjoyment and excitement i feel watching a race. But as someone mentioned earlier it is worth explaining WHY things should be exciting for the audience. I often find that when i do that for any uninitiated that are watching with me that my own excitement increases,…[Read more]

According to my budget, right now there are tickets available just for Gold 2,6 and 9; and Silver 3 (Pouhon).
Which one do you think would be the best deal?
Are those Gold grandstands worth the difference over Silver 3?
Thanks in advance.

It’s an intriguing idea. The main issue I can see are how would teams that are struggling to compete currently going to afford to produce another car? Maybe they could make the money back with a pay driver for the race but it’s unlikely. I think there’s also the issue of what happens if for instance Mercedes fielded an extra drive next race and…[Read more]

I think it’s difficult to produce a definitive list due to varying car performances, form and different team-mates. However, it’s fun to try and not too difficult to group them I feel. Personally I would do so as below:
