Formula 1 is back!

Yay! Formula 1 was kicked off in Melbourne this past weekend for 2008. I'm so happy that it's back. Even better? It's all in HD (720p)-schweeet!!! This is going to be awesome this year. Just finishing up the practice sessions and will watch the qualifying and race hopefully tomorrow night (DVR got it while I was in Cancún).

Any local Formula 1 fans who want to share the joy with me, let me know. :)

While I can't claim to be a real race fan, I have always enjoyed Formula 1 on the occasions I have seen it. My dad took me to F1 races a few times when I was little. To me it is everything NASCAR isn't (and I'll leave that without further comment).

Ahh, even more things to like about you! :)

Love F1. Hate NASCAR. Something about driving around an oval that is just utterly boring to me. What's the challenge in that?

No F1 races in USA this year. :( Did you go to the ones in Indianapolis?

One time to Indy. I was a wee lad, but I remember the hum -- it is not a roar, but a hum -- and I still find it weirdly soothing. Also beer, old-style fountain Coke, popcorn.

F1 is the sound of racing. Nothing else sounds like that.

Is there an F1 in Toronto or Montreal? I know that we went as a family to the race in Toronto in 1989.

I never, ever have been able to understand the 'let's drive in an oval for 500 miles' kind of racing.

This all may explain why I was so excited at a deep level to drive you car.

Ah, you're bringing back memories of my father's Formula (possibly F4, I need to ask Mom) days. We spent many a Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day as I grew up, not with him racing (he retired around when I was born) but in the pits at Lime Rock & watching the races; part of his business ended up selling to drivers & their crew, plus to the BMW Clubs out there.
