That's gonna be one tantalizing turn 1.

...and then the rest of the race will be about pit stop timing, tire wear, and whose supercomputer modeling is the most precise. Again.

Honestly, I'm really close to being completely done with Formula 1.

I know I'm really late to the party on this, but finally got around to watching a few episodes of "Drive To Survive" this week. started with season 3 with the cancelled Australian Grand Prix and... dear baby Jesus is this some amazing access and storytelling. I always thought of the inner workings of F1 teams as secretive and buttoned up and thought a documentary series about them would be pure PR passed off as high drama, but I'm pleasantly stunned.  I have to imagine NASCAR, IndyCar, and every other series in the world has something like this planned soon

and seeing Daniel Ricciardo drive Earnhardt's Wrangler car around COTA the other day and seeing the fun he was having was just a blast. it's really cool to see his respect for the entire sport that he wanted to do that. really glad he won that bet.

Which will be the more boring high speed parade:  this race, or the NASCAR race in Kansas?

F1 fans, please be advised that there may be some residual idol energy in the vicinity.  While it is targeting Kansas, there is the chance that it may radiate towards COTA.
 
2021-10-24 2:38:24 PM  
This grid walk is terrible.

We're looking for chaos so as long as it doesn't cause any cars on fire while stuck in a barrier, it's OK.
 
2021-10-24 2:45:16 PM  
Jingoism!
 
2021-10-24 2:45:25 PM  
Why would celebrities that don't give a shiat about F1 even bother to show up and walk around the grid?
 
2021-10-24 2:46:07 PM  
They pull someone out of the audience for the anthem?

To get seen by the cameras and be featured on TMZ.

It's not on ESPN, it's on ABC.
 
2021-10-24 2:46:55 PM  
Which race was the one that had the rock/metal version of their anthem? 

Anyways, this one sucks and prolly in the bottom 5 of the season.

Afternoon my F1/Fark family. Nice to have a race in the afternoon for once.

I wonder what percentage of the crowd is vaccinated. Maybe 40?

The sponsorship to keep it ad-free carries over to ABC

Yeah, that's a lot of COVID happening right there.

They should quarantine them right there for two weeks.

At those ticket prices?  There aren't many anti-vaxxers that could afford it.

Sensor issue wouldn't allow the car to start. They changed it and it looks like it's ok now.

To be fair, infection while outdoors isn't as likely. But with so many people there, there will definitely be infections happening.
