Euro GP: bored

Oops, fell asleep before the first stops. Usually I fall asleep between the first and second stops on dull circuits. This one is especially dull. A complete and utter failure in my book. It’s halfway through and I’ve switched it off. Bernie, the circuit is a disaster.

It needs revision. If it only took nine months to build the whole thing, it shouldn’t take too long to fix it. Lower downforce next year probably won’t help.

That track is shite.

They couldn’t even make the f1.com highlight reel interesting…

so boring, i switched channels to watch a movie that was already half over, that I’ve seen several times before and I’ve got sitting in the cabinet on DVD….was more interesting to find out who was the real Keyser Söze in the Usual Suspects….again!

Shades of an Indy race through the streets of Toronto – actually worse because you expected something like Monaco and ended up industrial estate. The uniform fencing everywhere around the track made it look more like a video game than reality. I look forward to Spa and a real track

im a big fan of F1m but have to agree this was boring, they said this was an over taking circuit. must have fallen asleep too lol… they should have opened the bridge halfwat through the race to let some boats in and out, that would have added to the excitement… and it looks awful with all the buildings around and everthing so grey and dull….. cant wait for spa and a real race

… I’ve only just woken up. As a sleeping pill it was wonderful.

I guess I must be the only person that liked this circuit. Monaco is Monaco, it will always be THE street circuit. I am glad this one is not the same, all tight and twisty. The back sector after the bridge looks amazingly fun. And the bridge is a signature of the track.

Yes, there wasn’t hardly any overtaking, but as someone stated, that’s a result of the aero rules and good weather. The only reason there was more overtaking at Monaco was due to the weather.

I say kudos to Bernie for getting some fresh circuits in F1 and mixing it up. I am looking forward to the Singapore race too.

Keep in mind this is a business and a competition between venues too. I bet most of you are sad to see Silverstone go too. I am a looking forward to Donington.

Valencia great, shame about the race circuit, totally boring, needs more overtaking areas. I also found it hard to stay awake.The end of the race was the best bit.

here’s a thought: if you want low aero & more racing, remove all wings & winglets, put intake restrictors on those engines, then we will see more passing up & down the grid like those taxicabs in nascar.
F1 is so arrogant that they’re the best they forgot that there’s no racing & passing anymore. it used to be that the start-to-finish winner is a rarity in the 80’s & 90’s. now it’s common in almost every race.
F1 should step down from their pedestal & learn from other race series. Get some close racing back & you’ll get more viewers.

poor old coulthard crashed again. At least he was the only guy having a go at passing drivers. DC crashes in almost every race.
