    @fastiesty hey inform me more on that please, what or where is Mardenborough? and has Red Bull closed any of their junior programmes? I knew they have reduced their number of “applicants”.

    @vettel1 it looks as if Red Bull is “the new Sauber”, Vettel, Ricciardo and Kvyat are 3 great drivers… so Red Bull (company) may end up having to power up Toro Rosso, as they can’t fire one of them!!! (That assuming not any other big team hires one of the 3).

    Wow, tough question. I guess Spa. I love Kimi’s wins there, and his battle with Lewis in 2008 was epic! Webber pass on Alonso at Eau Rouge was awesome! Grosjean doing a Maldonado was thrilling (in the bad way, I feared for Alonso’s life), that race is always spicy! (except for last year maybe :C )

    Spa

    What’s better: Rainy race or dry race (both IN SILVERSTONE)

    @kingshark and why Monaco? (that was part of the original question)

    Then I just skip your main question about Spa or Suzuka

    wait a second, one is a gp, the other a team… I’ll say Pacific for no real reason, just to keep the post rolling.
    Which one scared you most: Ralf’s crash at Indy or Kubica’s in Canada?

    Kvyat sending Vergne to retirement or to a different category

    MP4-4

    Which was more surprising for you, the male fan with a skirt in Germany (first Barrichello win) or Greenpeace’s banner at one podium?

    @mazdachris because we (or at least I) can’t buy a ticket to Abu Dhabi GP, I don’t have a rating device plugged to my TV, so if thousands as me don’t watch the race, it won’t work. So I recommend you to try a message in the links above. Thanks for the interest.

    Again, I’m surprised to see Button put away and giving Hamilton 2012? At least show respect for Alonso, he battled until the end of that season. And Button is as deserving of his title (in a rocketship) as Hamilton if he gets this yeas’s title in HIS rocketship, as Schumi 2002, Vettel 2013, Mansell 92.. I mean, the combo “supercar / good or super driver” is not unfair. If you are a solid team, if you build a rocketship, who would you hire (money out of the equation please)? Maldonado or Bottas? Vettel or Massa? Button or Kovalainen? I mention Massa and Kovalainen because these guys had their shot at solid, big teams, and (at least Massa post crash) have not been able to at least shine more. You see races when Hamilton or Alonso abandoned but their teammates didn’t take the team forward to get a victory. Button had the car, “tough luck” for his not-fans. He deserved his title.

    The champion is the champion for all of the reasons combined. Maybe this year can be the exception, I mean, if we calculate the points that should be with “normal points” vs “AbuDhabi points”, and if we see the champion could be another one if it weren’t for those double points, only then I would say “another driver deserves the championship”, but in fair play situations, the champion is the top scorer. This year, because of the domination played by Mercedes (and something gives me the impression Lewis has already cracked Nico’s confidence) I guess the WDC will be given long before the AbuDhabi scam.

    Points now look just fine. The problem is in the non scoring places (It’s indeed a F1 problem to see teams not scoring in 3 years) because just one good result means more than consistency. That one of them got a 17th in all the season and 20th on the rest, is akwardly more valuable than the other team getting 18th all the season and slipping back just in one. Of course is like a “face it” situation, these teams are not good enough to make one point, but it looks a little unfair. Unfair as double points, but the topic creator said this is not a debate about that, so just this about non scorers.

    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?”
