I used to love F1 in the old glory days.  Senna, Nigel, Prost those days.  Saw the qualifying runs on the Telly last night, and man things have changed.  First, sorry but those cars are horrifically ugly.  I get the safety halo, and love the idea, but the cars are just ugly now.  I loved the colored tires showing what compound they were running, and the speeds where just unbelievable.  A full 90 corner at 150 mph.  The talent is still there but man the sport is warp engine high tech now.
Safe race race for all is I root for.

dougermouse: but man the sport is warp engine high tech now.


The highest class of FIA-sanctioned prototype racing is high-tech? Who knew?

Bottas delivered some interesting news after qualifying: he said the Ferraris were faster and he didn't see how the Mercedes cars could keep up. Specifically, he said they were faster in the corners and approximately equal on the straights.

If true, Mercedes has their work cut out for them. Good.

Now if only one of the backmarker teams could emerge as a challenger we'd have ourselves one hell of a series.

WTF, this appears to be the 2nd race in a row that Unimas has decided not to broadcast the race!!! Damn those guys!

They need Mikey to do the grid walk.  This guy is boring.

I still love F1.  But their new logo is horrible. Lets go Seb!

It's dreadful. Martin just seems so unprepared.

In the wide shot, it looks like a clear day, for China at least.

When I was in Shanghai, one day the smog was so bad that I couldn't see the ground from my hotel window.  My room was on the third floor.

And to think that there were people actually happy that NBC weren't going to have F1. Yeah, they had too many ads; but the crew gave a damn and had passion for the sport.
 
2018-04-15 02:04:18 AM  
Huh... so, the race is actually on Univision, not on Unimas, at least I got my usual spanish stream -- yeah yeah, i know, weird, but gotten used to it and it hasnt had ads in years.
 
2018-04-15 02:05:29 AM  
Lets see if Ferrari runs away with it, or if the temperatures are better for the Mercedes so they can compete.  Also, will Red Bull finish the race?
 
2018-04-15 02:05:50 AM  
Who the fark even supports the ban on grid girls?

To ESPN's credit, they're not doing ad breaks.

I don't know why you think they're delaying it. F1 is extremely punctual. If you skip the preliminaries and turn it on exactly on time you'll never have to say that again.

Now it's on ESPN, who couldn't give a shiat about the sport.  Kinda like Bernie Ecclestone.

It was more a comment on Martin wasting time with a nobody

On the other hand, I had one of the spanish commentators reply to my tweet, letting me know of the change.
 
2018-04-15 02:12:09 AM  
2 stops cuz its hotter than yesterday?
 
2018-04-15 02:13:10 AM  
First race I've seen this year, I don't think the cage thing looks too bad. Hopefully no drivers eating debris this season

Dinobot: 2 stops cuz its hotter than yesterday?


After last weeks race I wouldn't be surprised if everyone tries to stretch it to 1 stop
 
2018-04-15 02:13:29 AM  
Here we go...

Race is usually a 2 stop

Does the language really matter?  As long as you can see cars go fast without interruption, don't we all win?
 
2018-04-15 02:14:48 AM  
Nice to see Max in 3rd, which means Ham has to overcome him.
 
2018-04-15 02:15:30 AM  
Great start. No wrecks and the front is all jumbled up. Interesting as hell.

I dont have ESPN, so I either get it on over the air spanish-speaking channels like Unimas/Univision or I get a stream.
 
2018-04-15 02:16:16 AM  
Ok,whos going to be the first guy to takeout his teammate
 
2018-04-15 02:16:16 AM  
No clownshoes in turn 1?  I am disappoint. But wow, what a good start.

Lewis would destroy Bottas without remorse every race if it got him more points.

Is Vettel still winning in Spanish?
 
2018-04-15 02:17:49 AM  
Vettel screwed over Kimi on that start, but good to see things mixed up.
 
2018-04-15 02:18:14 AM  
Force India looks like someont spilled pepto over the cars
 
2018-04-15 02:18:22 AM  
Ocon snitching on Perez, blaming him for both losing places on the start.

Well, Verstappen is the odds on favorite to take out anyone.

It was almost Vettel.

One can only wonder what Kimi thought of that particular move.

Whatever it was, I'm sure it was hilarious
 
2018-04-15 02:23:26 AM  
What's with all that sand in the middle of the track in one of the first turns at the start of the race?

*beeb beeb beeeeeeeeep*
 
2018-04-15 02:25:30 AM  
Vettel has softer tires and better grip. You could see Kimis tires slipping in the first turns.
 
2018-04-15 02:28:34 AM  
Lol... just noticed McLaren added wings to the halo.

A couple of teams have added things to the halo. I think Ferrari has something.
