    To be honest, I never thought Red Bull could ever win a single championship (drivers or constructors). They looked so distracted wearing Superman capes and Star Wars stuff, I couldn’t take them seriously.

    @keithcollantine about the 2 chanels, it really is just one. FoxSportsLA has FoxSports1, Foxsports2 and FoxSports3. Fox1 is in the standard pack, 360 dollars a year , the other is in the premium pack and costs 720 dollars a year

    Make it louder than real life, so nobody complains about the lack of noise. Just turn the volume up.

    1. What country are you in (and state, if applicable) Lima, Peru
    2. Which channels broadcast F1 near you? FOX Sports LA (“cable” channel)
    3. Do they show all the races live or only a limited number (if so, how many?) All
    4. Do they also show qualifying live? All
    5. Do they also show practice sessions live? all Practices, but in a more expensive channel. (Part of a premium package)
    6. If they are a subscription channel, what does a full year’s subscription cost (excluding limited time offers)?
    Movistar TV offers quite a lot of variations for the subscription, but it’s around $360 a year (and the full package of all the F1 coverage is quite double)
    7. Do they broadcast coverage online? If so please post link/s
    No, but I’d love to know links that work in Latin America in general
    8. Please supply any other relevant information such as alternative viewing options
    There’s a cars program on TV that shows the highlights of the race, but 2 weeks late (and just a 5 min release) so they’ll show the Australian GP this weekend.
    *F1 has really little popularity in Peru. You say F1 and people ask “Is Schumacher still running? What? he retired?”

    Hey guys, I see some of your got really addicted to the game! Well Keiths, my report is much smaller:
    (all of this playing with intermediate difficulty)
    YDT: I got what it takes to start my career at Force india. I really tried hard for Sauber but it was impossible for me)
    Season 1: some bad results at the beginning. On this game I have a Vettel-like campaign, I mean, I go slowly at first and then I finish so much better.
    Anyway, the Force India got me some finishing points, and my best was a 5th or 4th
    Season 2: I started strongly, with a win in Malaysia and another in Barhain. Then I struggled, but exactly when I needed it, I won in the Nurburgring. Sauber called me to drive right away. I got another win in India. Got a contract with McLaren for my 3rd season (YEAH!!!)
    Season 3: I rocked the car… I won Australia (finally, I was about to do it on Season 2 but my tyres didn’t resist and I finished 16th or something), podium in Spain, win in Canada, Silverstone (Wow that was great) Hungary made me trash again (I don’t know why I can NEVER even classify in Hungary, the tarmac destroys my tyres all the time) but my good streak makes me a place in Ferrari to start the next race, they say take it or leave it, so I take it ( it’s just a game, sorry Seb) and there comes the glory: Wins at Spa, Italy, JAPAN (my best win ever, it’s always been so hard for me to drive in Suzuka!!!) podium in India (and the championship!!!) and a superb rainy Victory in Brazil, to seal my contract with RED BULL!!! That was my goal. I didn’t play the 4th season because even when we are talking about F1, I got kind of bored to think about doing everything again. Nowadays I’m playing Split/Second and Burnout, great games, not really sporty but great!

    @fixy just curiosity, do you design helmets as a job? I’ve seen your Twitter page and you have great designs. Also, do you know if it’s possible to “patch” the F1 2013 game so we can design the helmets? (maybe designing the helmet first on an external program?)

    I just don’t want to write a list of 20 names… I just imagine 2 possible “universes”
    1. Button gets the championship with McLaren this year. Magnussen ends up as “another big promise” (another Diresta?) so Kevin is fired by Ron. Jenson decides to retire with his second belt. Alonso goes to McLaren in 2015 after he is beaten by Kimi (just a couple of points, but that’s so much to take for Fer) and seeing the champion’s car is available in McLaren, he grabs it, with Dennis or not. Hulkenberg takes the mighty number 27 where it belongs, to Ferrari, where he gets the championship in 2015. The Red Bulls are nowhere near the podium this year, in a McLaren2013-like campaign. Mercedes gets more victories but it’s Rosberg who gets the most of them, and so Nico gets the “first driver” treatment. Hamilton can’t stand it and returns to McLaren, where (oh surprise) it’s Fernando again.

    2. Kimi gets the championship, Alonso can’t stand it and leaves to McLaren. Button goes to Williams. Massa sucks again and retires. Valteri’s seat goes to Susie Wolff, who has a Chilton-esque campaign. Valteri takes Gutierrez’s seat. Gutierrez dissapears from F1. Hulkenberg takes Fernando’s seat and gets the championship in 2015.

    I must update the pic I put. I’m colorblind (hehehe) the previous picture was brown instead of red. Anyway, here it is (and let me say it looks tidier)

    This is the one I would use. The design has Nazca images, something part of Peruvian’s cultural heritage. Also our flag (red and white) and the letter O for Omar. (PS: I did the design just using PowerPoint and Paint, so sorry if it’s a little messy)

    …and whenever I see some symbols painted on the road (as when the water company drafts angles on the asphalt), I remember the Nordschleife!!!

    When the bus I take to go home everyday makes a fast right-left in a narrow street, I always think “chicane” and in roundabouts I think “Turn 8″. (and if you are an F1F, you know what turn 8 I’m talking about :P)

    I love racing games, but not only f1 ones.
    - NFS Pursuit 2010
    - NFS Most Wanted (don’t confuse it with THE most wanted that was released in ’12 or ’13, the one I like is from 2009 I think, or even older)
    - Tekken )the original version, because I have a slow laptop and this game is the only one that runs decently, and also because is for 2 players)
    - I was playing Assasin’s Creed Revelations last year, but the game never got me “addicted”, so I just uninstalled it. The same with an old mistery game called “Call of Cthulhu” a game about Lovecraft’s Universe. That game is so boring! A lot of cinematics and really little to play, and the riddles to discover are so intricated, I guess I like games where I just play straight away, not the ones where I’m wondering what the hell to push or pull to open a door.
    Lately i played and finished Flatout Carnage (an excellent racing-destructino derby game) and nowadays I’m playing “Split/Second” a game which is about a reality show program where every episode is a race with hazards (ala Death race movie). It’s great, but I don’t have much time to play it these days.

    it’s necessary to remember that this technology was also very unrelianle in Mclaren many years ago (in the times of Kimi I think)
