Bahrain is braced for three days of protests to coincide with the controversial formula one grand prix as the government and organisers insisted that the event would proceed as planned. According to the The Grauniad.

Exactly, what has the politics of Bahrain got to do with F1 and more importantly why are some of our polititions sticking thier noses into other countries affairs yet again.

I stopped watching F1 at the beginning of the season thanks to that greedy b*****d Bernie. I don't see why i should have to have sky put in and buy the HD channels to watch a full season. Don't see the point in only watching 1/2 season on BBC and some bits that somebody else thinks are the good bits...

I'll stick to the touring cars there's more action in that anyway

I just point the sat towards 19.2E, tune in RTL, put Radio 5 on the sound system and watch all the races without paying Sky a penny :D

Shame you're not watching it Jason as some of the racing has been the best for the last decade...

A big :thumbup: for BTCC and WTCC as well

Really? I gave up of F1 years ago when it just became a procession. 2 then 2 then 2 then the rest. No overtaking and races seemingly one by team tactics. BIG YAWN....

Has it really got better and how much?

As good as the 70's and 80's as anything past that is just pants...

last weeks race was a cracker Gordon

Rosberg had the race in the bag pretty much from the start to be fair but the battle for the rest of the points was the best I've seen in ages, about 8 cars all battling for second place for much of the race
Yes but how many overtakes actually happened on track. Last time I watched it after the first lap was over you could count the number of overtakes on one hand and that was only due to people regaining position after pit stops.

If you want to see real racing have a look as some of the 50's - 80's races. They were a different class. Proper skill not playstation stuff.

You would of had to take off both of your socks to count the overtaking just in the last few laps in the last race..
