I just finished watching a race on television. Do not want to give any details away for those that watch it taped. (It is 2 AM so only die-hard fans watch live) Half the field failed to finish. Several yellow flags. Some serious Rubbin’. (Rubbin’ is racin’) A former champion in American Open-Wheel debuting in the series. Top teams from last year failing to finish. Weak teams from last year showing great improvement. Various pit strategies. A former series champion watching the finish from the pits. Sounds like maybe NASCAR’s Daytona 500? Nope. The first race of the season in Formula 1 from Melbourne, Australia.
If you did not stay up to watch it, don’t miss the replay later this afternoon on Speed. And if you have never watched an F1 race before give it a try. Can be real exciting.
