Was a good days TV much to She who must be obeyed's annoyance :) Not over keen on all of it but when Plato is on form he is brilliant. He didnt seemed bothered during the last race though having won the first two

Posh banger cars.. Some of the driving is rubbish. They just use the car in front as brakes. Not my favourite formula at all..

At least they compete and dont drive round in a procession. Its a much better spectator sport than single seater racing

I think the main reason is the noise. There is nothing like it.

F1 cars are just so impressive in the flesh. At Silverstone I used to like standing at the end of the pit straight and watch the cars through Copse. Breathtaking. Then walk up to Becketts.... How do they get through there??? Finally, carry on down to Stowe and see the cars turn in at 200 mph flat.. Nothing else can do that, nothing.

Touring cars are just so pedestrian in comparison. They only reaason they can get away with running into each other all the time is because they are just tootling along. And the only reason they can follow closely is because the cars have no aerodynamic downforce, so the grip is pretty much unaffected by the car in front unless he throw a load of gravel on the circuit. Super Mario Kart mate....
