The GP of China

2013 is off to a crackling start.
We will gather to watch the aftermath of the Red Bull duel. Hopefully the two teammates will have it sorted. And the teams will stop whinging about their tires and just get on with it.

    Hey folks on Sunday I heard a few of you mention having been to Austin for the Grand Prix last year and was wondering if anyone knew what the General Admission areas were like? I'm trying to convince a few people to go and naturally those who aren't fans are reluctant to spend $300+ for seats... Thanks for any input

    I talked to a few of you about the Lemons team. The Google group is here https://plus.google.com/communities/111160017400320656472

    Group,

    "NBC Sports Network presents more than 11 hours of Formula One coverage this weekend highlighted by the CHINESE GRAND PRIX live on Sunday, April 14 at 2:30 a.m. ET from Shanghai with an Encore presentation at 1 p.m. ET. The race will be preceded by F1 qualifying live on Saturday at 2 a.m. ET, practice on Friday at 2 a.m. ET with an Encore on Saturday at 12:30 a.m. ET, and the premiere of F1 36 featuring defending Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel on Saturday at 12 a.m. ET. F1 Extra, NBC Sports Network's post-race show, will air live after the Chinese Grand Prix at 5 a.m. ET."

    Is there a replay of pre-race coverage, or qualifying before the re-air? Might this new show: F1 36 be 'on demand'?
    have a good day,
    Sean

      I will have F1 36 recording available. I guess we could watch it after the race. The race itself is um, 'on demand.' We'll start pre-race at 1030

      Pre race, but the race start time is 1045 +/-10mins calculating skipped advert time is something I don't want to do.

      hmm...need to figure this out so i don't end up missing all the good parts again.

    Vettel seems to have gone mental:

    Vettel showed little apparent remorse for his failure to obey instructions by snatching victory from Webber in Malaysia last month.

    There was no 'war' between the team mates, he said, but no real trust either.

    The Australian, added the German in a 20-minute long explanation, had not deserved to win.

    Vettel said he had not understood the order to hold station, issued in coded form as 'multi-21', but would probably have ignored it even if he had fully comprehended.

    "Had I understood the message, then I think I would have thought about it, reflected on what it means, what the team wants me to do, to leave Mark in first place and me finishing second. And I think I would have thought about it and probably done the same thing because Mark doesn't deserve that."

      I thought queen Vic worked great. It was fantastic to have our own area. I realize its hard to get to. I intend to make it, but just need to work some things out

      Queen Vic then. I like the true pub atmosphere better too. Just gotta walk off that bean/sausage/egg/pint breakfast I guess.

      Thought this looked amazing. Even better than I was anticipating. Though the Nikki lauda actor seems a little wooden

      Maybe he's channeling Kimi instead of Niki.

    If there were hot girls in red pin striped tank tops at Queen Vic....I'd be there, 'cause that English breakfast thing is way better than the pseudo-gourmet bar food thing redline has. But my priorities say....well you see where this is going.
