The GP was broadcast at a time that overlapped with my Sunday AM coma, so I DVRed it and watched it when I was revived -- at the crack of noon. Since nobody's really going to watch a GP in the western US at 0400 on a Sunday, Speed must have been unable to book infomercials at that time I'd guess. That one with Eric Estrada is among the most annoying. The land looks great but I'm betting it's really mosquito-infested and in any case, I'm not about to make a real estate deal in the middle of the night. I wish they'd show that infomercial with the practical jokes DVD from those German guys or whoever they were, that wasn't bad.
Money makes people do strange things, like hold GPs in Bahrain. The track is great, with ultra-safe runoffs that are better than those on many airfields and it's really wide too, giving people plenty of room to build up some speed before running into each other. That modern GP cars can't start a race without incident in places like this speaks volumes I think, but it's certainly not something to be proud of for the teams.
Hamilton continues to dazzle, Ferrari got their act a bit more together, and Heidfeld is regaining some ground from Kubica. What I found interesting is how many Honda motors blew up. They have lots of work to do. I also liked the director giving us shots of the mid-field battles, since they were more interesting than figuring out when the lead car will pit and continue uneventfully.
I'm looking forward to European GPs.
