There is plenty of sport in F1.

Its not just something you jump in the car and do.

There is a new awesome series on Netflix following last season. Mainly through Haas.

The drama and footage is mindblowingly good. Good insight in what goes on.

i totally agree

those drivers are really fit 

i remember Ayrton Senna talking about his first race in F1 he couldn't get out of the car afterwards 

he had to get match fit

ill see if i can find anything on netflex thanks Brian

I used to like watching, but unfortunately this is just about what it has come to, and the sports rulers recognise this and are trying to even out the playing field, but I fear there are just too many bumps to even out.

Sadly due to sissy environmental pussies the sound is not that good anymore.

What does the blu-ray have to do with it?

I scrapped my player and run whatever I can through the PS4.

Watched the first 3 Netflix episodes and really enjoyed them.

Looking forward to the new season, but think it's still going to be a Ferrari / Merc battle again - although Honda seem to have made big steps forward I don't think they'll quite have the pace or reliability Red Bull want this season (which I don't min'd 'cos I've got no time for Horner, Marko or Verstappen!).

Midfield battle is going to be really close - not sure pre-season testing really shook out the order - and that as always is where the real racing goes on.

Pretty dire for free-to-air in the UK - highlights only except the British GP - but I took the punt on Sky last year and their coverage IS really good, and visually spectacular in Ultra HD. Only problem for me is both Sky and C4 commentators are hopelessly up the arses of Hamilton and Verstappen, neither of whom can do any wrong in their eyes.

Chat seems to be that they are concerned about Ferrari's obvious pace advantage in testing (not that you can always read too much into that) plus there is a feeling that Leclerc will be better at taking points off the Mercedes' than Raikkonen was - Kimi didn't generally get between Vettel and the Mercedes that often when they all finished - and Ferrari have been clear that they will use team orders earlier, as opposed to not imposing them last year when there was clearly only one driver in contention.

Edit - he also apparently believes that the "front of the midfield" is much closer to the top 3 than previously, although again testing didn't really show that

Episode 4 of the Netflix thing was a hoot - Christian Horner v Cyril Abiteboul on swapping engines, poaching drivers and generally rubbishing each other.

At turns hilarious and excruciatingly embarrassing. Funniest thing was Horner describing Mad Max and Daniel as their "best ever" driver pairing. Er, Vettel and Webber anyone - just the 4 world championships, 1 second place and 3 thirds between them!

Maybe he meant best ever drivers to be a team together as they seemed to be real teammates.

Now I know F1 isn't really like this, but I respond this way to all auto racing.

Max Verstappen.

Not only this year but probably also the next 10 years or longer.

But he should do something about his big mouth and his hot temper.
