Wonder if anyone here follows F1 as religiously as I do? It's the one sport I watch and follow regularly. Pretty stoked about the new season coming up, hoping it creates some interesting matchups.

I can't wait. New tires, more downforce, and Bernie is gone!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah man, I'm happy as hell hes gone. The sport got stagnant and I'm hoping the new owners group will really turn it around. The new cars look awesome, especially Haas. I haven't seen any results from testing today but I'm hoping more teams put heat on Merc.

Merc is going to be tough, rumors are they found another 70 hp. I don't think in testing they will reveal all they have, just like last year. Put enough hp in it to win, but never put all of it in. I am impressed with the Haas cars,hopefully they will do well this year, but I hope Ferrari has their crap together and they are reliable.

Merc is definitely gonna be tough. Ferrari has definitely shown good pace on softs so far. I'm slightly disappointed McLaren is still having engine problems though, I was hoping they could put together a good year. Never what's to come. I'm really hoping Haas can consistently put points on the board. It would be nice to keep an American team on the grid for a long time.

Sure why not. I enjoy NASCAR from time to time but I have no idea how their complicated points system works now. I just enjoy racing.

tough to beat a team that's got Andreas Nikolaus "Niki" Lauda telling you exactly how it is in the pits; him and Hamilton is a potent team.

Testing finally over and just waiting for Australia. I'm really looking forward to a mix up at the top. Don't know that it will happen but I agree that Verstappen shows a lot of promise and I hope he gets up in the mix consistently. Of course I'm always hoping Haas consistently scores points, their testing showed consistency and some promise.

He managed a podium today at the BGP

It was a wild last three laps and watching Bottas coming from 9th to 2nd was something else...
It wasn't a super exciting race until the end but it was a shame seeing those tires come apart. At least Kimi stayed on podium.

Haven't missed a race in years.
So disappointed they ruled in favor of the Halo. We've learned to enjoy the product that is presented but damn, the good old days of NA V8s seem like the golden years for me.
In contrast Indy has been very entertaining, just wish the oval was the exception, not the norm. Open wheel racing is plugging away though, so I'm happy.

I agree with watching Bernie leave was a great step forward. I am hoping the new owners can pump some life into the sport. The halo is almost as bad as the V6 turbo power units. I hope they reconsider that one. The cars have definitely been improved this year and had led to some better racing.

I also agree that IndyCar has been entertaining. I will admit I never watched it until Alonso's entry in the 500 this year. The lead changes fascinate me but oval racing does get slightly boring.

Oval Racing is only good for the highlight reel to me, and that is coming from a pretty hardcore racing fan. I would rather watch the intense blocking of Monaco or Ferrari blow all of their tires on the last lap.
