Putting the "F" in F1

The fans of F1 got "F"u*ked Sunday during the United Stated GP at Indy. For years I have contented that F1 is nothing more than a billion dollar parade. Everyone follow Michael. Well this season the rules changed and the competition was better than it had been in years. I, a confirmed NASCAR fan, started watching F1. That is until now.

As I settled in to watch F1 at Indy I set my DVR to record the NASCAR race at Michigan. The F1 broadcast started with news of a tire issue and the possibility of all 14 Michelin shod teams withdrawing from the race. I couldn't believe it. Would F1 shoot its self in the foot again? I was riveted to the TV. As all the cars started the warm-up, I thought the drama was over but when they came up to PIT IN, every Michelin shod car pulled off the track, all 14 of them. I could NOT believe what I was seeing. 6 cars, two from Ferrari, Jordan, and Minardi sat on the grid waiting to start the race. I was in shock. And much to my amusement it was once again "everyone follow Michael".

I could not believe what was going on. These self proclaimed Greatest Drivers in the most technically advanced cars in the world just quit. The FIA, Michelin, and the teams could not come up with any solution so they just quit. Over 150,000 fans got to see 6 cars run 73 laps. Hell, most funerals have more cars!

Hmmm....maybe "F"uneral is the right word to describe the USGP.


Ok world, I've decided to start a BLOG. Why you ask??? Because I've got LOTS to say.
