Formula 1 Thread

We might as well have one big thread for it, considering the massive amount of people here that follow it.

After watching a practice session and qualifying for this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix, I'm pretty much hooked.

That knockout qualifying they used was pretty cool. In the last second of the third session, Raikkonen crossed the line to take the pole, followed by Alonso who bumped him down, who was followed by Massa who knocked HIM off the pole. I've never been so excited during a qualifying session.

After approximately three hours of watching practice and qualifying, I kinda get the impression that Ferrari and McLaren are the top two teams, eh?

It's on live tonight/Sunday morning at 2:30AM EST, but replays again Sunday afternoon at 3:30PM EST, like TennesseeFan07 said.

Qualifying re-airs just before the race tonight/tomorrow morning at 1AM EST.

Yeah, they tried it there this year and I think they did it at Mexico and Watkins Glen last year. It's much more entertaining than watching 43+ cars individually take 2-3 minutes to drive at a time.

Now did NASCAR do the same thing? I didn't really pay attention to the Busch qualifying at Mexico or Watkins Glen, but I got the impression that they just put a group of cars out there at one time to turn their qualifying laps.

F1's knockout qualifying isn't the same thing as that at all.

Neither Renault car made it to the third session of qualifying and they were making a big deal out of it... Did Alonso's departure from that team make that big of a difference? They also said the tire was giving them fits since they apparently primarily used Michelin tires in previous years instead of the Bridgestones that all teams must use this season...
