    So only a few weeks to the race but the timetable isn’t yet confirmed… I was wondering about support races etc. Can’t seem to find any news…

    Hi @awizul

    Thanks for your advice, I booked tickets in the main grandstand on the sepang circuit website. Really excited now!

    And to answer your earlier question I’m not from Mugello but I do have distant relatives over there :)

    The 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix is an interesting one. Raikkonen led and crashed (something you may have overlooked), handing the lead to Alonso who then had a wheel nut problem (something you acknowledge).

    In this case, Raikkonen retired from, or lost, the lead 7 times due to both mechanical and ‘non-mechanical non-driver’ issues (rather than 6).

    Just about to book my tickets, there’s four of us going. Never been before, really looking forward to it. Is there any way to find out the entry list?

    I think when looking at Schumacher in 2012, you’ve really got to look at it in context. The equivalent would be Ayrton Senna racing in 2003.

    When you look at it like that, it’s remarkable that Schumacher is still driving so well, and still has so much apparent motivation. I don’t want him to retire. If I wanted him to retire it would be circa Canada 2010, but even then I didn’t want him to retire because watching an F1 race with Schumacher in it makes it infinitely more exciting for me, whether he comes first or last.

    There’s only a couple of races in the past few of years that deserve legendary status – Canada 2011 and Brazil 2008.

    As for my own personal favourite race, Nurburgring 1999 has to be up there. It had everything. Frentzen led, went out. Coulthard led, went out. Fisichella led, went out. Ralf Schumacher led, got a puncture. The Ferrari pit crew couldn’t find a tyre for Irvine. Even poor old Luca Badoer retired just a few laps away from 4th place in a Minardi.

    If you’re too young to have seen that race, get it watched! http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/8205498.stm

    I really enjoyed BBC coverage, but Sky’s has been excellent so far. A few downsides, Damon Hill being most of them. The guy was boring when they used him in 2002, you’d think that they’d learn!

    Whaaaaaaat!? Driven is AMAZING!!! It’s so corny, I love it! The best part is where they randomly go racing through the streets! Hahaa what a film!
