Chinese Grand Prix, 1 hour and counting...

There is a webcast... sort of. formula1.com has live timing (sweet) and chat (not sweet). It's especially nice during commercials so you can see who pits and whatnot. It's also quite possible I'm a total tool and no one else cares about this nifty feature. Who knows?

MS is going to win. From the back of the grid. They changed his engine and he's going to rev the **** out of that thing. Great. It's been tough to be a Williams F1 fan this year. Maybe next year!

well everyone, the hurricane left everything but my cable intact last night, so i didn't get to see one bit of the race. i talked to my bro, who lives far away from here, and he said it wasn't on the Speed channel anyways. Really, is it too much to ask that at least one channel broadcast the race? i mean half the time they're on the other side of the world, so the only thing they would be interrupting to bring us the race are those stupid infomercials they show usually show all night. well that's my rant...

I watched it on the speed channel last night ... and I am in Orlando. The track is SWEET. I only watched half of the race though before I passed out. LOL

I did the same, sadly.

Just read the JB said that there were four corners where it wasn't possible for him to breath. As you say, that track is SWEET.

i live in a place called Arden Villas, which unfortunately is under contract with Direct Cable (who sucks my @ss). They are a digital cable service, and three of our channels have been out over the last few days, one of which is the Speed channel.

did the race start on time? like i said, my bro was watching the Speed channel and he said the race wasn't on at 1:00am. maybe it didn't start until 2:00am eastern time?

I think it started a little late ... maybe 130AM, not exactly sure as I wasnt really paying attention to time.

now that i think about it, i know the race was on at 1:00am eastern time b/c i watched the count down at F1db.com. so does anyone know when the Speed channel might show a rerun?

PS - sorry mods (for posting in the wrong forum. it was late and i was tired and not paying attention)
