Just visit any sports forum (doesn't matter what sport), a lot of sports fans are not much different than console fanboys. We see a small amount of it here with people slating varoius drivers.

It isn't a lot of fun watching Rosberg have the championship handed to him on a platter because the only man who can compete has had such bad luck in comparison. I'm glad the racing through the rest of the field has been so good this season.

The in-car footage of Alonso chasing Magnussen was awesome.

@brendan: he had to do over half a lap with basically 3 wheels to get to the pits, it put him way behind the cars in front and damaged his car

Are you Dutch, @Dussck: ? I guess there haven't been many drivers from the Netherlands to support in F1 in recent times.

When I was a kid, I loved watching F1 with my dad and supporting Martin Brundle who is from my home town. It added a lot to have a local guy to look out fo during the race.

Max is about 3 years younger than the previous youngest driver, I also worry it might be a little too young.

Toro Rosso have signed 16 year old driver Max Verstappen for next season.

His father Jos was an F1 driver for about 10 years, and is probably most famous for the fire that engulfed his car and pit crew during a fuel stop in the 1994 German GP.

Also; at 16, I think he's not old enough to drive on the roads in most of Europe.

Great passing today from Botas and Alonso to get up from their low grid positions. The battling between Vettel and Alonso towards the end was awesome too. Combined with the eventful qualifying, it's been a really exciting race weekend.

The ruling was that Perez illegally changed his line going into the corner.

It did look like a racing incident to me. But, the stewards have access to a lot more data than we do, and there are several rules about when and how much you can change your line when around other cars.

It would be really if nice if an f1/sport site could break it down and explain the decision.

I saw something called the Historic Monaco Grand Prix on a UK satellite tv channel the other day. A little research told me it's something that happens 2 weeks before the Monaco Grand Prix every 2 years, and has races with several eras of F1 cars around the Monaco circuit.

The one I saw was for F1 cars between 1973-1878 , and the grid had an amazing assortment of crazy looking cars. Most are names no longer heard of in motor racing, but there were a couple of McLarens and Williams cars in there too. It was great watching these old cars zip around the Monaco streets.

I looked around for more videos and saw some footage of a race made up of pre-war grand prix cars, and it looked terrifying.
