Yep, I'm a fan of Formula 1, occasionally dip into other motorsports too but rarely have the time these days.

Yeah thats kinda cool i watch moto GP occasionally in between long break's in formula one.

So how do you see the season so far...

Any perticular Team / Driver(s) your favorites ?

Mclaren are doing so fantastic this year shame alonso had to leave tho.

Also quite surprised how vettel has been behaving like a very immature Kidult...

I've been a fan of Max Verstappen's driving style since he first showed up in Formula 1 - I'm sure he'll win the championship some time in the future. I was never really a Vettel fan, though he's certainly very talented. He often has a point when he gets angry, but last year and even moreso this year he's been going a a bit off the rails. Perhaps it's frustration, because he really should be challenging the Mercedes drivers and Leclerc better.

Verstappen's & Leclerc will win world championship sometime like you siad in the future.

Verstappen's driving style is awsome brings back some skill to the races entertaining to watch.

Leclerc is a interesting driver for the future thats for sure not sure how long he will stick with his current team tho, because of vettel and all that mistrust being developed between him and vettle, i can see vettle retireing sometime in the very near future and will be NO big loss to the sport.

Looking forward to the next few races for sure. and for the 2020 championship, they need to in my opinion take a lot if the garbage off the cars and some of the driver aids and bring back real driver skills.

Yeah, looking forward to it alright, though I'm hoping it won't be easy for Mercedes. I'd much prefer if it was hard fought and close between the top 3.

Yeah you bet its not gonna be easy for the merc's this year they are going to have to be better than they have been the last few years that's for sure.


And that not to say the valtri is gonna be pushing Lewis even harder this year as well so quite some extra pressure from inside the garage as well.


Not gonna say anything about the Scuderia Ferrari gonna leave them for now. ( don't get me started LuLz )



But redbull is going to be harassing the top runners this year as well also HASS are going to be strong as well as a few other mid teams as well, And finally fingers crossed that the williams team is going to take the head outta there ass's this year and good luck to mclaren this year as well.


And don't count out Mr Max as well he is going to challenge the top teams as well, so this year is gonna be something outta this world for all F1 Fans of all ages and creed's... hurry up march 2020.

I enjoyed the esports version of our local Australian Supercars championship. The graphics looked lifelike.

Breakin my heart how non competitive F1 is these days. I'm remember thinking the Schumacher era was bad, jesus I never even finished watching last season because of the severe monotony. I think the best season we had in last while was the year Jenson Button one the championship. 8 different winners that season I think. Now that was more interesting.

I am definitely looking into watching the Indycar series for more wheel to wheel action but not sure how to get it without having to pay yet.

MotoGP, yes you get the odd more boring race but most are exciting and there are frequent mix ups in positions unlike F1 pottering around protecting their tyres. Re-starts again this weekend yay

If you forget Mercedes, it's pretty interesting now

I'm really waiting WRC and WRX to start around September, love to follow them more than other motorsports.

I used to watch a lot of motor racing on TV... F1 definitely became boring the last few years and Formula E is usually quite entertaining.

That said, I haven't watched anything on TV since March 2020. I now get most of my entertainment from Twitch and YouTube. The Rocket League tournaments can be completely unpredictable sometimes.

Yep, there's definitely plenty of entertainment to be had if you look at the actual racing and not focus solely on the end result. I've been a big fan of Max Verstappen's style ever since he first appeared on the scene, and Charles Leclerc is similarly often exciting to watch. Daniel Ricciardo is a very entertaining driver too - last year some of that was lost because his Renault wasn't nearly as competitive as the Red Bull he was in prior, but it seems there's more potential to see a bit of his excellent late braking skill this year.

Kinda like Verstappen, but kinda don't as well. He was a little accident prone for a while. Since I haven't been keeping up with it last year or so I dunno if he has matured. Of course his exciting racing style is enjoyable, but sometimes I feel like he needs a good slap. Much like Eddie Irvine did

My fav back in the day was Jean Alesi. When I stick on Micropose F1 GP you know who I'm selecting
