I watched qualifying this morning. I don't track my car at all but I loosely follow GP and LeMons.Singapore is a wild looking track.

It has been a while since I watched a race, and had no idea that the Renaults had mad it back into the spot light. Kind of disappointing that BMW won't be a manufacturer team after this season.

Holy ****! They just replayed Scott Sharp's crash in the new P1 Acura at Road Atlanta. He went for a ******* ride!

Irony, I just got done watching Project LMP1 last night where they talked about the making of that car. Pretty sick that they used the same sized rubber all round. However I forgot to turn on Petit, time to start watchin'.

EDIT:

That turn at the end of the straight reminds me a lot of Laguna Seca.

I love Laguna. I raced it quite a bit in Gran Turismo for Playstation2. LOL!

Just watched the qualifying. I hope I'm not spoiling it for anyone, but I'm glad Lewis ended up where he is, he's had some bad luck lately.

That crash clinched it for him. There were a couple guys going purple in different sectors behind him just before the red flag.

Watch it. If you're willing to sit through practice, which although I love F1 I find practice boring, qualifying was well worth the time.

It is good that Hamilton got pole, I would have thought either a Red Bull, Brawn, or Renault car would have taken it.

Also for anyone who heard bout BMW Sauber not coming back next year, apparently they don't feel that the F1 series is helping them advance their cars as much, so they are going to focus more on Le Mans and AMLS supposedly.

Side Note: What is up with Porsche pulling its LMP1 (or were they P2?) cars out of AMLS?

I think Porsche was in P2. Don't know about BMW, but it is nice to see Peugeot in the lineup again.

I'm going to watch it here in a minute. Hamilton already spoiled it for me on facebook...

I don't care though, the night race is such an awesome show I don't care if I already know the outcome. The only race I'm looking forward to more from a scenery perspective is Abu Dhabi.
