*crickets*

Those stands really were empty.
Plus its a boring season even by F1 standards. Barring mistakes or breakage only two cars can win.


You obviously missed the first half of the season.  This season has been awesome, Mercedes flexing some muscle with their new, innovative engine as well as a good chassis, two top drivers battling and great racing on the tracks from all the teams.  Reflecting back to the last four years where it was Red Bull year in and year out, I like this season a lot.

Also, the Williams and Sahara teams doing well.  For those people that didn't go to the race, I'd say you lost out.  I know that the track pretty well sucks since it was shortened, but it still looked like it would be a good time.  Especially if you could get seats in the top of the main grandstands.

Yep. Cheapest tickets were about 165 euro ($222) going up to around 500 euro ($680).
Add to that the fact that it was hot on the heels of a world cup win (where a lot of German sports fans went to Brazil & the remaidner stayed behind & drunk 3x their body weight in beer & it's no surprise there were empty stands.

True but when the Mercs have problems, then the resulting race becomes fantastic stuff.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: The announcers refuse to acknowledge that Bernie's outrageous track fees and attendant high ticket prices explain the empty stands. They simply don't know why people don;t want to come to the race!


When German fans don't come to Hockenheim (notorious for how deafening the stadium section can be), to watch a German driver in a German car dominate the race, there's a _huge_ problem.

I see NBC/Hobbs/Machett don't have the balls to mention that the track that might replace Monza is owned by Ferrari.

There are far more important thing to talk about here, F1 fans.

Why, in three months time, are we still supporting Vladimir Putin and his cronies with an F1 race after MH17? Why has this travesty not been canceled now we know that the rebels Putin armed shot down a passenger jet packed with innocent civilians, and with Russian military assistance to boot?

It's time to boycott the Russian Grand Prix:
