Just completed watching the Brazil race since grandma's house doesn't carry Speed channel. It was definitely an interesting year. The title being determined at the last race, it was all down to the wire. I enjoyed this years Formula 1 very much. Though i'm quite sad racing hero Michael Schumacher has called it quits for the 2nd and probably last time. Had high hopes he would make some incredible come back. But at least I was able to see the legend race one last time. Maybe he can join Rubens Barrichello in Indy cars, yeah wishful thinking. But with Lewis Hamilton replacing him, it should be interesting Mercedes AMG line up. Time hangup the Mclaren and get new Mercedes stuff.
Yesterday I sat at Turn 12 of the Circuit of the Americas. Weather was cool and bright, great day to watch the race.
Another view of turn 12. DRS zone just ahead of the turn, this is where many good battles were won and fought here. This definitely is a fanstastic Formula 1 venue and everyone has to at least attend it just once or perhaps more.
And the after party wasn't bad either with some good music, chill atmosphere and alot of expensive beer.
When a friend of a friend who has a relation to Scuderia Ferrari you get to take a quick look at the inner workings of F1. I've been super ridiculously fortunate to be one who had the opportunity to see the inside.
One thing i've always hated about old yellow fever and generally many of the old Mazdas, was the wheel bolt pattern that the cars were provided. The 110 x 4 pattern is just plain horrible(what were they thinking), since it limits wheel selection to dress up the old dog. I've been contemplating to change this and attempted rectify this.
