    What a great F1 race!!

    What a Great F1 race. just when I could hardly be bothered to kick my rug rats off the cartoon channel to watch it, F1 turned out a great race tonite. Shoey's suspension fell to bits. Someone forgot to tighten Alonso's Nuts and Kimi did a bit of Thai style driving by ramming someone up the arse.
    Leaving it to our nice man Mr Button to zip it up. ( Oh Dear) Great to see Jenson on the top of the podium after a brilliant race

    Indeed an enjoyable race. I had rather given up hope on the season when Alonso was romping away with the championship, but Schumacher's recent comeback has livened things up no end....And who could have predicted the ups and downs of this race?....I would have liked to have seen Schumacher get some points....But nonetheless, well done to Jenson, and De La Rosa....Someone once suggested in jest that every Grand Prix track should have a sprinkler system installed.....maybe not so daft an idea.
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!

    F1 racing - I'd rather watch paint dry.

    F1 is worth watching if the only alternative is throwing yourself under the nearest bus. Definitely, the most boring spectator sport on the planet. Perhaps the only amusing aspect is the way the commentators try to make it sound interesting by talking in high pitched voices, using as much technical jargon as possible and trying to incorporate inane European expressions and then getting them wrong in the translation.

    Most certainly a sport for little boys who never grew up.
    The truth is out there, but then I'm stuck in here.

    It was a great race. Sometime today UBC star sports will be replaying it. Channel 40. Happy for Jensen, but sad for Kimmi.

    Kimmi must be a sponsers nightmare or dream, I dunno which. Put him in front of a crowd and half of them will be asleep before he finishes the first sentence, he's boring even by Finnish standards. On the other hand he will never do anything to embarrass them, you could hardly describe him as a hell raiser, party boy could you? No doubt that he is a truly gifted driver, but why don't his handlers give him a him a bit of personality training, even teach him to break out into a smile once in a while.

    It is a high tech and highly competive sport.
    The boys get to play with million pound toys but you must be the best in the world. England totally dominates the sport from the technical side which is a credit to our ingenuity.
    But as for watching it, totally boring

    Take a little of the technical out and let them pass each other. That always spices it up. It was great watching Shumacher and Alonso get passed last night.

    His delivery is incredible....surely he can't be like that all the time.

    As for the comments on F1 being boring - I agree, it's one of the reasons I like it. For me it has a similar attraction to football in that when there is an event then it really is an event.

    Bugger! I missed this one. I can only blame it on the number of times I've woken up during the "post-race interviews" to find out who has won by seeing who is sitting in the middle.

    I do wish they'd let us know when there's an exciting race. They should replay it every night for a week.
