IMS wouldn't pay the fees so they lost their F1 date. "some guy crashed" was Indy-gate when the Michelin tires, which most of the field used, couldn't handle oval part of the track so only 6 teams ended up running, it was a mess and was a big part of them dropping out of F1.

F1's awesome, too bad I have to get up at 5 in the morning here on the west coast Friday-Saturday to see the coverage.

Oh sorry, I could have swore that there was a crash and some guy ( i dont know who sorry) got a little hurt so the drivers voted to not go back.

Yes Ralf Schumacher crashed in turn one and might broke his back, but I don't remember there being any drivers voting.

F1 is awesome but sadly it gets far too political! Teams are always threatening to leave or boycott races, McLaren have been caught cheating twice... and some of the races can be rather boring! Oh and they got rid of both the US GP and the Canadian GP despite teams complaints and have threatened the Australian GP despite its huge popularity...

Get rid of the politics and i would love it even more! Monaco GP is up next and i implore everyone to watch it! Like the Daytona 500, Indy 500, Le Mans 24hr its one of racing's best!

Is Brawn GP at all related to Colin Braun? Could we have an Yank in Euro1 next year?

The only way F1 will ever make it is with real drivers in the series instead of the Eurowankers that currently compete. The new USGPE team should hire Dale Jr to drive one of their cars.

Thats just what Dale Jr needs, a poor Season is NASCAR followed by a shocking season in F1... and i don't think you can call them Eurowankers for driving cars at 220MPH which produce so much G that when they break their tearducks can erupt... oh and not all of them are European...

F1 lost me when Senna died. Mikey S. made it boring. I'm 20 but i remember Senna well enough to know that back when he was alive, F1 was in it's hay-day. To me anyway.
Now it all about "this guy is cheating". I really wish F1 would get with the program and fix the rules so EVERYONE understands them. Oh well Bernie E. is one of the biggest D-bags on earth.
