    Did anyone else witness the spat of Formula One races that hit North America?

    All of the sudden, two weeks in a row, FOX has live action of the Canadian Grand Prix and the US Grand Prix.

    How about that Lewis Hamilton? Freaking skiller or what?

    I only get to see two GP's a year, so the announcement that FOX will also carry the French Grand Prix is downright pwner.

    I got speed channel but that's not in HD, the fox races are. F1 is ridiculous in HD on fox, it makes you take a dive when you see a F1 car coming out of a corner at you.

    I hate hamilton... ooo look at me, I'm so young, I won from pole, ooooo... plllllease, young whipper snappers.

    Super aguri disposing of mclaren and ferrari in canada during the last few laps was awesome though, I was like, GO M*****F***ER GO!

    I watched the race and was very disappointed by Kimi. For the last two years Kimi has seemed so close, being beaten by an unreliable ride as much as anything else.

    This year I was hoping he would hop into the Ferrari and run circles around everybody. Good thing I can't bet on the races.

    Actually, I would love to see Kimi get sick or something and see Michael hop into the car and make it to the podium. It won't ever happen, but it would be interesting.

    Since I only have rabbit ears, I usually watch the taped race at a friends house and think that I prefer the Speed coverage more than the Fox coverage. Part of it is the face that speed can devote more time to the race.

    An interesting tidbit is that the race is 'hosted' from Charlotte. All of the guys fly in and watch the world feed. I'm not sure if there is a few second delay or not.

    As for Hamilton, the kid is undeniably talented but I will be curious to see what he does if he doesn't qualify at the front. If nothing else, he is at least a good ambassador for F-1, and it was great to see him and Alonso race for a bit there.

    BTW, how could I find about any groups that gather to watch the races?

    it is pretty obvious he can drive around ANYBODY on the grid if he has to...haven't you seen the passes on people and especially the juke he put on massa??? massa went clean off the track.

    secondly, he had never driven on the canadian track or indy and look what he did: 2 wins....his FIRST 2 wins.

    i'm a ferrari guy but i'm telling you now, he will win the championship.

    Ferrari seems to be a little behind in their cars with all their failures lately. Coupled with the younger drivers, I think it'll be pretty hard to beat. Plus someone commented that he might've been a bit disillusioned assuming that part of schumacher's magic was in fact, the ferrari. It's like thinking someone's really fast because of their bike and then finally realizing it wasn't when you get the same bike and can't post the same lap times.

    I watched it!!! The Indy race was freaking sweet. There is just something about F1 that sets apart from other Auto racing, except for World Rally and Le Mans.

    Go_Fast,

    Sad to say, you're probably right. At least he seems to be genuinely decent.


    slvoid,

    I keep telling myself a new bike would make me faster too.


    Bantam,

    I think someone said that they can pull 4 G's when they hit the brakes.

    A great season so far. Now we get two races worth of delayed coverage.

    I believe it's a total of four Fox GPs.
