Re: 2013 FIA Formula 1 · world championship
I'm feeling done with F1. Already last winter I didn't follow F1 news daily like previously, just read some articles here and then, mainly about the commercial side, little about the sporting side.
And this morning's qualy showed something I think sucks with F1. The rain wasn't usually heave, still it was too heavy to prevent driving. A normal rain like that shouldn't prevent from competing in an outdoor sport. Yeah, maybe it was getting dangerous, but they should then make wet driving safe instead of not driving on wet. And after all, I'm not too sure it was even too dangerous. Rain should stop driving only if it's as heavy as at e.g. Nürburgring '07 or Malaysia '09 when it was almost flooding on the track. But this morning was just a normal, a bit heavy rain, which shouldn't prevent driving.
From about 2000 to 2011 I never wanted to miss even a practice session if only I had a chance to watch it. But last year I started skipping practice sessions and tonight I'll watch the qualy only if IW SFs end so that there's less than 30 minutes to the qualy.
Finland becomes a F1 force again! However Bottas was disappointing, he finished some way behind Gutierrez which itself alone is facepalm worthy
