Watch the Australian GP

Welcome the start of the new F1 season. We will be gathering at Redline in DC to see what the teams have been up to since Brazil. Let's meet and gang up on the Ferrari fans ...err make lofty predictions for the coming year. ;)

[ New time for the F1 meet. The qualifying will be continued at 1230pm as it was interrupted by rain and fading daylight. I will arrive by 1215 so anyone who wants to watch Q2 and Q3 tomorrow aim to be at redline by 1230.

Race (pre race?) still starts at 1.]

    For the Fantasy League, do we use the name and invite code to "Login" or to "Register"? I tried Login, but it kept saying bad username and password. The registration says to register as a Team Manager.

      I think the site is having a problem. I couldn't log in either.

    Hey everyone. Great to see so many people today for what was (I think) and exciting race in between all the commercials. I spoke to a lot of you about the LeMons team we've started. The reason its gone quiet on here is because it is going like an F1 car on Google+, which is a more versatile platform for us to work on. I encourage you all to come over to that site to keep up with our latest news, and even come and help us work on the car sometime if you're so inclined. All the details are at:

    https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/111160017400320656472

    I'll put some photos up in the gallery here as well.

    Cheers,

    John (the token Australian)

    I wasn't hallucinating, nbc sports *DID* have a picture in picture set up for ads during the race ... I don't know why they changed the setup during the race replay.

    I simply had no idea how many avid F1 fans there are in the DC area. Alas, I cannot today's meetup with the rest of the group. I hope to attend, at least for Silverstone, Spa, Monza, and Monaco.
    Thanks for organizing, James.

    Sorry Guys, I am out today! However, enjoy the race and Go Lewis!

    So the 1215pm time reflects replay of qually?

    March 17, 2013

    • James

      Race and pre race start at 1

      March 17, 2013

    • Edward W.

      Ok thanks! See y'all there!

      March 17, 2013

    ended up watching at home last night

    March 17, 2013

  • Dane

    Yeah, I thought I was gonna make it, and was totally psyched to meet you guys, but I can't. Meanwhile, I promise this is the last time I drink with high school girls. Also, spoiler alert, Max Chilton wins. Ha

    March 17, 2013

  • James

    Does anyone know of any good, easy and (preferably free) F1 games that we can play? I am thinking something like the fantasy football games -- we should start a league for the meetup members

    March 15, 2013

  • Hendrik

    so, with qualifying suspended, does anyone know what's happening with it getting broadcast??!

    March 16, 2013

    • James

      Cool thanks, meet updated to reflect this.

      March 16, 2013

    • Hendrik

      James - not sure if they will be doing a re-air of Q2/3...just looked at the listings and it still shows some stupid fishing show 12-1pm... I'm going to watch it "live" now...

    I know we've settled on Redline for Australia, but for future races, I spoke with the folks at a great bar who would love to host us (replays for races at insane hours). They're also starting Sunday brunch in April. It's on Wisconsin Ave, less than 2 blocks from the Bethesda metro. They have a decent sized parking lot. It's a relatively small place, but everything is quality. We'd pretty much have the run of the place if we bring the business. Being able to metro or drive with free parking is a nice bonus. And their food is awesome and well priced!

    if its something we'd want to shoot for, lmk and I'll hook it up

    March 15, 2013

    • James

      Maybe after the league goes to the ME or Europe. I don't think we would get many takers for a race at 2 or 3 am ;)

      March 15, 2013

    • John W.

      Sounds like a good option. Happy to check it out (not at 2am)

      March 15, 2013

  • john l.

    Hello folks! This will be my first time chillin with y'all. Finally! I get to be around true F1 fans here in DC. Benn a fan since 94.

    March 15, 2013

    • James

      Welcome. I think you will get on well with the crew. Many have said much the same!

      March 15, 2013

    • John W.

      Looking forwar to meeting you

      March 15, 2013

  • Jason

    might be a bit late

    March 15, 2013

  • Rosanna

    A little late

    March 14, 2013

  • John W.

    James, Have you heard from Redline? I think that's the best option if we can swing it. Do you want me to give them a call?

    1 · March 10, 2013

    • James

      Yeah. I heard from redline. sounds like we have to watch the re air at 1pm if we want to watch the race at either Redline or Carpool.

      March 12, 2013

    • Trevor G.

      I'll go with the majority decision, but Hayes' offer to show the race minus the ads on DVR sounds pretty good! Sitting through the ads while watching a tape-delayed race can be brutal. Again, I'll roll w/ it either way. Regardless, here's hoping I can prevent my phone apps from posting the winner overnight ...

      March 12, 2013

  • Adam

    I'll be at Redline if that's for sure

    March 12, 2013

  • Hayes

    I should have mentioned I'm in Alexandria, 4 blocks from the Braddock Road Metro and 3 blocks north of King St.

    March 12, 2013

  • Hayes

    I can host. I'll have the race on DVR so we can skip through the commercials. I can also move it up to 9 or 10 AM if you like

    March 12, 2013

  • Rosanna

    Can't wait for the season to start

    March 11, 2013

    Hey I'm new to this group, but some of my friends and I have already talked to and set up a viewing event for this at Carpool in Arlington at 1pm (for the replay) if you all want to watch it there! I found this group after I started talking to them, not trying to step on your toes or anything. www.facebook.com/formula1dc

  • Silpi

    I will sadly and happily be out of town.

    March 6, 2013

  • John W.

    Is there a bar or brunch place that we can show a replay at?

    March 4, 2013

    • John W.

      I know of a place that *might* be able to show it for us at the 1 pm replay, but its in Silver Spring and may be difficult for some to get to. Downtown would be preferable.

      March 6, 2013

    • James

      I can finally come up for air after the last month or so... I will make tracks over the next couple days to see if we can play the race somewhere convenient

      March 6, 2013

  • Charles

    It looks like the replay is going to be at 1 in the afternoon. http://affiliate.zap2it.com/tvlistings/ZCSGrid.do?sgt=list&fromTimeInMillis=1363492800000&stnNum=15952

    Dam, I use to know how to insert a hyperlink. you'll just have to copy and paste.

    Anyway, I know of a place where we can (most likely) watch it. I know the bartender /management and have mentioned the possibilty of having a possible F1 viewing in the past. He was very welcoming and said he would love the business. I will talk to Tony on Friday. The establishment is called Rumors Resteraunt and it is at the corner of 19th and M in midtown. They also have a true brunch menu. I'll get back to y'all shortly.

    • Charles

      I just remembered college basketball is ramping up. The madness starts the fallowing Tuesday. But what about conference finals?

      March 5, 2013

    • James

      yeah, i was thinking about March madness, thats why i'd like to record the race overnight and replay it at a bar for us all, before the Patty's and MM crowd runs us out!

      March 6, 2013

  • Charles

    Rumors is out for this race. They're taking part in a bar crawl. I forgot about St. Patties Day.

    March 6, 2013

    • John W.

      That is probably going to rule out most bars at 1 pm then. Certainly any Irish pub.

      March 6, 2013

  • Charles

    Is there a replay at 11:30? I can't find anything on on NBC Sports website.

    March 5, 2013

    • Charles

      Jon, I don't know why your picture is on my account

      March 5, 2013

    • John W.

      I hacked your account as part of my plan to take over the world! Or there could be an issue with your safari.
