The team has screwed Hammy (and Button) numerous times this season. He must have snapped.

Japan this weekend.

Suzuka has become one of my favorite tracks. Who's going to take pole this week? I'm going to bet on 'anyone but Hamilton'. The rest of his year will probably suck. Drivers that diss their team usually end up breaking.

A lot.

SPEED channel is getting on my nerves. Cutting for 5-6 laps. Good race nonetheless! Streamed SkySports for the rest of the race.

Great, Vettel almost reached Alonso in the championship, thank you, Kimi!
However, mathematically, even Massa has a chance to win the championship. 5 races, 125 points, Massa has 69 now. 69 + 125 = 194 pt. Assuming, Alonso won't finish all of the 5 races, as well as Vettel, Kimi, Webber, Hamilton, etc, and if Massa wins at least 3 times.... I know, it is not gonna happen, but again - theoretically he can win.

Grojean needs to learn the first lap of an F1 race is not driven at a qualifying pace.

Yeah, I stopped watching F1 on SPEED channel long time ago due to their commercials. Now I watch mostly BBC (with Coulthard and Jordan) or SkySport. Unf, have to torrent the translations, seems to me Verizon FIOS don't have those channels....

And Fernando looses the lead.

I'll have to eat my words in Post #1. Looks like the Austin GP will go off without a hitch. But like I always said - I win both ways (no race = I gloat. race = I get to see race).

Massa gets a stay of execution for 1 more year. Lame.

In exactly 1mo, will be watching FP1 in Austin

Ya, I'll be in Austin too.
I'm starting to get excited.
First race, first F1, first USGP for me.

Is there a BMW gathering taking place that weekend at all? CCA doing anything?

I don't know but an E46Fanatics/BMW/internet people meet-up would be fun.

And a question while I'm at it:
Will they transmit commentary at the race?
Like over FM or AM radio?

Thanks,
Hoobie7
