[F1] The 2017 Season Thread - faster, louder..

Yes that was a good intro but I’ll trump you with this classic from BBC GP (and The Neverending Story) grid music

Am I right in thinking that the UK will lose the free to view rights for F1 after next year? I guess the highlights might continue

If so that will end my F1 viewings

Yep, based on this season's end I think I'm not going to get into next season too heavily and will probably give up entirely come 2019 as it's almost impossible to not get the results spoiled as the likes of the BBC insist on putting the results on the front page of their news site. It's like they do it out of spite due to them not showing it anymore!

Spite? What a load of nonsense. They just report the news and that includes results for major sports. If you check the news before you get to see the highlights then its your own fault.

Rubbish ‘race’ today though.
Hardly any ‘racing’... more of a time trial..’who can drive 300km quickest’ type affair.
Abu Dhabi is (almost) always a dull race, even in 2010 when we had a 3-way battle for the Championship it was a yawn-fest, decided in the pit stops.

It's a beautiful setting, but F1 deserves a more exciting finale.

It’s a horrible racing track, but money talks sadly.
