Curse you guys for making me watch an F1 race at 8 in the morning, but I can't wait to hear you guys talk about it!

I can confirm that racing continues to be racing. I also continue to comment on these before I listen.

Huh, the downloaded MP3 starts in the middle of a sentence. Downloading again to see if I can fix it.

This was a crazy qualification with a solid grand prix on top of that.

Keeps it all interesting, tight and competitive.

This is the first Alt+F1 I'll hear while stationary (on vacation, no commutes).

I wonder if it'll have the same impact if I'm not racing around traffic. At 5 mph!

This was the first GP I watched it from practice through qualifying to the race, and first GP I got my wife to watch! It was quite amazing all around :)

I just started this weekend and wrangled some archives of previous races. I think I like it.

Curse your crypto-Soviet and Irish arses!

Check this out. Tweeted this to Drew and Danny but don't know if they got this before they recorded the podcast as posting this while listening.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/28230500 This is Max Chilton nearly being hit by a tyre from the Räikkönen crash.

Update: They did get the tweet before the recording.

Has anyone had any luck finding race highlights videos? It's completely fucking stupid that if I miss a 5 am race I have zero opportunity to see any video from it at all.

One thing that Danny and Drew sort of skipped over about qualifying:

Hamilton was actually still on the track for the final lap, and right in front of Rosberg in fact, when he gave up and pulled into the pits before completing the lap. Had he stayed on, he would have hit the dry 3rd sector and probably had pole position. Crazy mistake.

I kind of agree with what Nikki Lauda said. Räikkönen was very irresponsible putting so much power on back across the grass. Completely understandable though as your adrenaline is pumping and you want to make up positions lost.

@zgoon:

If you don't mind paying a couple of bucks. Check out Private Tunnel. It might have what your looking for and with decent rates that if you want to watch something live you could.

@drx25: Hah, you have it easy. Race starts at midnight on a Sunday in New Zealand. And then they had to spend an hour fixing the busted fence.

@triumvir: Me too! I've been enjoying watching qualifying along side the races as well.

yes!

I love how Danny says "Chill-turn". Sounds like someone taking it slow around a chicane. :P

edit: for Danny

Wohoo, cycling mentioned. It's the inevitable next step in euro-centric sports after F1 and soccer.

Oh, and also thanks for the excellent podcast, keep up the god work.
