    No, no it doesn't. They never give up though. Sure the sport is still great but they went through some very, very boring spells and lots of politics and crap. Now they seem to be just adding complications for the sake of adding complications, ostensibly to keep passing viable. I'm unconvinced.

    My biggest complaint though is the tracks they chose lately. I know it's for $en$ible rea$on$ and everything but I can't get excited about new tracks in Asia. Meanwhile the one or two interesting, classic tracks in Asia, they've now lost from the schedule.

    My ideal schedule would probably get me sued (some of the tracks are no longer "safe" even they have not changed, meaning they never were...) but it would be something like this, no particular order (but Africa should be first and Asia last IMO):

    Kyalami, ZA

    Albert Park, AU

    Estoril, PT
    Jerez, ES
    Hockenheim, DE
    Spa, BE
    Monaco, MC
    Silverstone, UK
    Paul Ricard, FR
    Rijeka, HR
    Zandvoort, NL
    Imola, SM
    Monza, IT

    Montreal, CA
    Hermanos Rodriguez, MX
    Interlagos, BR

    Suzuka, JP

    Just off the top of my head. Six continents without having to hold Grands Prix in the middle of the desert or the middle of the night, and tracks with some sort of historic significance. Sheesh... It's improbable they'd ever do this sort of thing again though, money talks.

    Vettel just tweeted (?!) about a meeting with Walter Roehrl. Since my time zone is nine hous behind them though I am going to sleep rather than follow.

    Predictions gentlemen?I'm just waiting to see if HRT make it to the race.If they do,it will have been one the biggest improvements made to a car ever.Also, Mercedes should do better, or at least they say they will.

    I don't think HRT will make it to the GP, no. It was a miracle they did a lap last time. The problem is at least partially all the restrictions on development and testing that were intended to keep costs low and make F1 more accessible to teams like... HRT.

    For a team with last years front wing and only able to do one Instalation lap, they were faster than I would have guessed. They may be able to get a car on the grid if they have the new wing and participate in all 3 practices.

    I'm driving to Austin taking my dads pimped out vanagon and camping. Leaves me with lots of ticket money.
    As soon as the date is announced my wife and I are putting in for vacation time, so I will be getting paid to go.

    So it turns out that silver diffuser on the McLaren is actually a handmade titanium diffuser and not carbon coated in heat resistant material.

    They were running a new carbon diffuser on Hamilton's car and the titanium joint on Button's car

    Vettel snatched that pole right out of Hamilton's hands. Sonofa***** is fast.

    Lauda is correct about all the rubbish on the cars.

    It would be better if use was free and best if use was banned.

    Looks like Ferrari are having a retro 80s style season. There will be wailing and cries and gnashing of teeth. Woe unto the tiffozi.
