Today's race was epic as far as any F1 race I have ever seen, TV or live. You can DVR it on speed at noon on Tuesday.
I am so looking forward to Texas next year! http://www.formula1.com/news/headlines/2010/9/11198.html And yes, I will be there.

Outstanding, I watched some of it today on our friend's HD big screen!! Excellent

They're definitely fun to watch live, I was fortunate to be there live to see Senna race at the Phoenix Iceberg in the late '80'.

I was fortunate to see Senna, Prost, and Schumacher all go at it.
Speaking of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on the St. Lawrence River. Gilles was a great snowmobile racer that ended up in F1. His death was tragic and I was watching it on ABC sports "back in the day. His son, Jacques went on to win the F1 championship, CART championship and the Indy 500. Two great Canadian drivers, for sure.

USA driver Eddie Cheever came in third at the race which was HUGE. Senna, Prost, Patrese, and Mansell were some of the big names that raced that day.


I remember Jacques back in the CART days. Those were some exciting times until Tony George ruined Indy Car racing for me right at it's peak of popularity (IMHO). Cussing I've only just started to watch it again.
