Yeh, i've followed F1 for many years now.
And hardly ever miss any races.
I have a bit of a love / hate relationship with F1.
I have enjoyed some superb and thrilling racing over the years.
But those are rare occasions.
90% of the time, the races are boring, with a capital B. Very predicatable.
And the sport was utterly ruined for me during the Schumacher era.
Where he and ferrari won everything going. Year in and year out.
But i stuck with the sport. Mainly because it was on prime time viewing.
And last year was an incredible season. A fairy tale story for the brawn team.
Now, Schumacher is back and i fear the worst. Although i look forward to seeing how well he fairs against Button and Hammilton. That in itself should be pretty interesting to watch.
Oh, and alot of the great tracks have been Nerfed big time to come into line with the ever changing rules of the sport.
What have they done to the Bus Stop at Spa for instance.
Last year was quite farcical with all the cheating, rule breaking and dodgey characters that inhabit the sport.
Looks like everyone has forgotten max Mosely dubious out of hours sexual indescretions and also Flabio Priatory seems to be on his way back too.
The sport is a Joke. But very rarely, it does produce some brilliant racing.
The best motorsport to watch in my opinion is Touring cars. Always very exciting.
And then i love to watch the WRC rally championships. And the drivers are in my opinion, the best in the world. Far eclipsing the over hyped F1 guys.
Woa. Didn't realise i went off on one there.
Quite a rant.
