    I have no problems with them using US commentators but we do get as many breaks as the US, its when it cuts back to the studio and we basically get a shot of some other people watching the race thats another ad break in the US.

    Why can they not get a proper feed? It happens for pretty much every other sport. The presenting team do a good job but I gave up watching Indy Car this year due to the poor coverage of the actual racing, although I am tempted by the new road course heavy calendar)

    And agreed that the GP2 ahem “coverage” was poor.

    Interesting, I just watched the Indy Car highlights (I completly forgot the race was on over the weekend and forgot to watch or tape it – doh!) and the restarts just seem a mess because they also slow down to 75 mph on the limiter and then gun it.

    Double file would just mean restarting the way we start in F1 if you think about it. It might also penalise the rest of the field less for people to keeping up.

    What are this years DRS rules for saftey cars? Im assuming if its a DRS straight you can all use it. Epic 21 man tow for Karthikeyan in last place :P

    My band is at http://www.soundcloud.com/blistedpearl

    And as for cubase its what we used as our DAW (Digital audio workstation) in the studio. Cubase is very powerful, its just layed out a little bit different in places from things like pro tools. It is every bit as powerful unless your using the outboard card for pro tools, but that costs around Ł4,000 +

    I dont think he’s actually pushing for this. Games-manship.

    I dont think he wants to keep paying HRT if there going to be like last year, ill wait and see if the 2011 car is any good at all. (it probably wont be)

    Personally I’d like to see a new 13th and maybe 14th team in for 2013.

    I expect Di Resta to be very stong as he’s had a lot of miles in the car this year along with Paffett who deserves a real shot at F1.

    Ricciardo will be fast but not as fast as you’d think a red bull to be and Maldonardo and Gutierrez will have decent showings.

    Problem is the track evolution of the two days makes it hard to judge their relative performances.

    Are there any decent winter series. I know theres the GP2 asia series, but its a bit sporadic to say the least and seems to be going the way of A1 GP

    It is very important that your 7 year old son wears ear defenders (And a wide range of colourful options are availible for kids too!) therefore its probably sensible that the whole family ear plugs up if only to set a good example.

    I did see a lot of people not wearing ear plugs, but its a lot higher pitched that you’d expect. I could cope fine without them and Im a bit of a musician so I have to look after my ears as Im in a loud environment a lot.

    Take a good pair of ear phones and some ear plugs and you should be fine. Im contemplating taking cans (big headphones) next time I go.

    I think its 2 GP’s in total or something like that. I dont think Schumi qualified.

    HRT are also testing Davide Valsecchi, Im assuming on the day pastors at williams.

    P.S. Is Garry Paffett ever going to get an F1 drive? He must have some rediculous amount of testing miles under his belt by now! Surely if you were Virgin you’d pick him up for a season?

    To be honest I found that at Silverstone its not actually that loud. I mean its loud but its not like painfully loud. (Bare in mind that your not standing next to them, in fact your quite far back – where are you sitting/standing?)

    Standard ear phones worked ok for me, but I want something that blocks the sound out better so I can still hear the commentary when a pack of cars blasts past.

    Basically concentrate on my F1 2010 career, although I am on for winning the Drivers title in my second season of seven with Sauber :S (I’ve got the difficulty all the way up but can’t be bothered to learn manual gears)

    But keep my eye on the driver market, chat on the forums and its not that long till car launches and testing begins.

    We also have the young drivers and pirelli tests to go before the years out. Oh and the Team Lotus, Lotus Racing, Lotus Renault, Air Asia F1 …. etc. saga :P

    I would like to see a move towards how Moto GP does it, with a maximum amount of fuel allowed (Its something like 16 or 20 litres, but im not sure).

    You would mandate this amount of fuel so that the cars have enough to make the end of the race (or at least they’d have the same).

    However with the engine freeze at the moment this is unfortuantly a bit rubbish, as you would want the engine suppliers to work on their engines to improve the MPG (or the power output per unit of fuel). This would tick the box of being Green and improve the racing in my opinion, because of the different amounts of power availible for the race.

    E.G. A powerful but fuel hungry Ferrari racing a more efficient but less powerful Renault engine.

    The problem is now STR is a seperate team from Red Bull (due to the rules), I wouldn’t be surprised if they sell it.

    However HRT is going to have a williams back end and lotus/air asia is going to have a renault back end. STR can’t even do this anymore due to having a Ferrari engine deal.

    They need to get a more experienced hand in their to support their younger driver for development purposes. Or at least someone for friday driving.

    Grosjean with the tire test has a good chance. Especially if he can get some backing since he’s trouncing everyone in the lower formula!

    Pure lols at the person who suggested Takuma “Im in a wall” Sato

    Also I know chandhok’s a nice guy, but hes just really not all that fast tbh. Bruno was outqualifying him by over a second most of the time. And I think Klien may have shown Senna up!

    Well for all the fan-fare about Kubica, he was outscored by Heidfeld last year (and it could of been worse if full points had been handed out in malaysia). Further proof that Heidfeld deserved a drive!

    I think if I had to place money on it, Kubica seems to be moulding himself into a great team leader. Therefore as an F1 driver, I see him having more sucess.
