Yeah, F1 is mainstream in Europe and not North America.
Bernie is chasing higher fees outside of Europe.


I was reffering to cost of Live Timing in 2016 season on your computer.
EUR 20.18 Canada
EUR 24.11 USA
EUR 26.99 Most of EU states

That is because the Canadian dollar has tanked this year even worse than the Canadian hockey teams.

Perceptions (Public - global - Poll by GP247)

WHO IS THE BEST F1 DRIVER OF THIS ERA?

SEBASTIAN VETTEL (36%, 732 Votes)
FERNANDO ALONSO (35%, 721 Votes)
LEWIS HAMILTON (20%, 407 Votes)

NONE OF THE ABOVE (9%, 175 Votes)

Total Voters: 2,035


I am not exactly sure on what basis Alonso continues to be voted at the front in a place where question of the day is always the same - what have you done for me lately? Hamilton, just as Mercedes, aren't being helped in terms of values, by one engine dominance.

Yea, we know Alonso and Hamilton are roughly equal, as they were teammates once. If you put one on the list, you have to put the other. The big unknown is whether Vettel goes above those two on the list, roughly equal with those two, or below those two.

Very good (and about time !!!). My son got to play a game on the Verizon Rink ice right after the Capitals vs Avalanche Game.

Ovi got a hat trick tonight.

Well, losing last night to the Dallas Stars wasn't very encouraging (but Ovi got a goal).

Anyhow....don't really have anything to say right now about the upcoming F1 season other than 34 days, 10 hours, 13 minutes, 18 seconds to go.

I find it rather interesting how much noise is emanating from the Ferrari camp.

Well, Ferrari and everyone else should do better. It is harder for Mercedes to find areas for improvement. My money is still on Mercedes over Ferrari, and Hamilton over Rosberg.
