    i know we have a few NASCAR fans here, but are there any open-wheel racing fans out there?


    this is the kickoff to the 2012 Formula One Season. i know i'm not gonna last through the entire race..hell, I didn't know they were racing today until a half hour ago.


    i'll check it out for a bit, anyway.


    i'll say that old man Michael Schumacher wins the race, and Lewis Hamilton won't finish.

    doing the warm up lap now :cheer:


    i dig that they all start from a stopped position. usually leads to chaos before the first turn.


    no big wrecks, just wheels touching and spinouts.

    It has to suck bad to have your hopes dashed on the first turn of a race.
