Formula 1 Season

I'm a big Formula 1 fan. Today's race is going to be an interesting one, with Ferrari backing Alonso instead of Massa, McLaren having a good chance with either Hamilton or Button and the Red Bull drivers both fighting it out for victory.  


Should Alonso end the race with a DNF, Ferrari will be in real trouble this season.  I'm a big backer of McLaren and namely Lewis Hamilton, so I know what I want to happen.


I have trouble explaining to my peers what makes Formula 1 so interesting.  They see it as a bunch of guys driving round in circles, yet love watching over paid dummies kicking balls around for 90 mins.  It's just not the same, these drivers are the most elite athletes in the world.  You didn't see Mark Webber rolling around on the floor crying and holding his shin when he managed to back-flip his car at 180mph.


Who are you backing this season?  What other sports interest you?


Mark Webber's awesome back-flip:

  13. Oh sweet Jesus. I don't know how many of you have ever actually played around with a tire before, but they're real fuckin' tough. Did you see how much they compressed when he slammed into them? Two rows of tires, fellas.
