Geez

I tune in for a snappy conversation about if anyone has the nuts to challenge Benz this year.
Kimi and Seb in a quick Ferrari could be fun.

Didn't even contemplate that you lucky sods get to GO TO THE RACE
post-up pictures, or it didn't happen...

Yes we are a bit spoiled by having an F1 in our backyard. I actually work about 200metres from the Albert Park Track and can hear the cars from my desk during Thurs/fri.

We also have a great Festival of Speed type event on at Phillip Island Classic Historic Race this weekend to get us into the spirit of things. PHILLIP ISLAND | Victorian Historic Racing Register

cheers Gregg

P.S. I damn well hope someone can challenge the Benz's as its been a bit boring the last couple of years.

Default Paddock Club

Towmaster,

I've got to do the Paddock Club again this year on Friday, work, work, work

It's difficult but someone has to do it. I must look after my customers or

someone else will.

yes should be very interesting. Went along yesterday. Big crowd, nice weather. The cars look pretty good with the extra rubber. Still sound like lawnmowers. Shame about Danny Ric crashing out in Q3. Hamilton and Vettel on the front row will prove interesting at turn 1 :-). cheers Gregg

Watched the race last night (PST)--it was nice to see a team other than Mercedes in 1st. I haven't followed F1 for a few years, but I liked what I saw.

Yes not a bad race for a change, with a bit of drama. Good to see other cars up there with the Mercedes - hopefully a more interesting season ahead. Also shame about Ricciardo's bad luck for his home GP.

Great to see someone win without a Merc DNF. The race itself was boring as bat sh!t though. Apart from the back markers pass on lap 56 odd, there was Zero on-track passing apart from turn 1 on opening lap.
