2006 330i  [4.67]
2009 Formula 1 Ing Turkish Grand Prix

Massa won this race 3 consecutive times, but I doubt he will win this year unless something insane happens (rubens takes out Jenson, redbull crash into kimi, and left Filepe baby running in the front).

Be advised for North America viewers, the coming four GP races will be DELAY BOARDCAST on FOX. Speed channel will only provide live Friday Practice Session 2 and Qualifying.

Sucks!!!!

Great, so we get to be talked down to for the next four races, and we don't get live timing during the race. Argh... having these races be televised for a "general" audience sucks. The dumbing down of the information just aggravates me to no end. I can just hear Matchett now, "And look Bob, there on the edges of the car you can see what I am talking about, those are tires. Now behind the driver is a thing called an engine, can you say that with me...e n g i n e..."

Oh well, at least its a great track.

Nah, just seeing what you meant. I like the one week breaks better myself. I'm sure the fans love it, but quite hectic for the teams.

you can probably pick up the race live off the net from streaming turkish channels (there are a few that stream on the net and are free)

The BMW Sauber team has confirmed it will finally introduce a double-decker diffuser at Turkish GP.
BMW motorsport boss Mario Theissen admitted the team did not expect such a poor start to the season after scoring its first win last year.
He insisted, however, that the team can cope with the situation and that it will continue to push to get out of it.

It's so annoying to watch the races on FOX! Even my wife was like, "why are they talking like we're F1 idots?" This year I think I'll download the BBC broadcast...

I have the same problem with the local broadcast. I had no problem watching ITV with 80 cm satellite dish. ITV lost the broadcasting rights to the BBC and now I need much larger dish (180 cm).

I wholeheartedly agree. It would be nice if they included commentator free audio on the SAP feed.

don't even bother getting the diffuser debate started with the NASCAR troll...exploding brain matter makes a big mess.
