Formula One

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone else watch? In my opinion the last year or so it has been more interesting than Nascar. Much of it due to how boring Nascar has become. The racing seems to be either real bad or real good. I think that running in the rain also makes it more interesting. The one thing I know for sure is that it is easy to watch when they run in Europe. You can roll out of bed on Sun morning turn on the TV and they are ready to start.

Id rather have acid sprayed into my eyes than ever watch formula one again. Europe can have it.

Formula 1 is great. The driver's title being decided on the last corner of the last lap of the last race is a pretty fun sport to be part of. Watching cars turn left 1000 times in a row gets pretty old. Also, the lack of technology development in the NASCAR series is pretty disappointing. NASCAR should push for a kinetic energy recovery system in an alternate form, say hydraulic. That might make it interesting. Watching desperate drivers crash into each other and take out half the field isn't very entertaining.

They are 2 totally different types of racing. You can't even compare the 2. F1 is high tech/high $ engineering driven racing, and NASCAR is more old school.

I like the start of the F1 races though. Dead stop at the flagstand, green light, all hell breaks loose into the first turn. Then I fall asleep.

Remember it's not just Europe: It is arguably the most popular racing in the rest of the world. A Nascar driver could only dream of making the kind of money that F1 drivers make.

Of course, some don't like driving there either and come to Nascar i.e. Montoya, Carpentier, Papas and probably a few others.

I have caught many early Sunday morning F1 races...Definitely high tech, but as boring as it gets. Very few passes for the lead. Very few passes period!!

Nascar's COT is designed to let low budget teams still come to the races. This is getting back to the grass roots of Nascar and better not change!!

Watching drivers bang into one another for the lead is why we watch. F1 fans might be looking for interesting. I'm looking for exciting.

F1 is okay with a cup of coffee in the morning. Plenty of skill involved and incredible G-forces. But all of the cars seem to be on a rail.

And here in the great USA alot of us still can't get the image of the guy "parking" his car before the finish line so his buddy could take the checkers!! At least in Nascar they don't make "taking a dive" look so obvious!!

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
