Re: Turkish Grand Prix - Istanbul 2011

I think this circuit is first rate and it will be a great pity if this is the last time it will be held there.
If it is I only hope it is replaced by something equally as challenging or better.

Unfortunately Bernie would have i going round the M25 if the Govt. would cough up enough dosh. Spectator sport ? Bernie is only interested in TV $$$.

Re: Turkish Grand Prix - Istanbul 2011

Bernie isn't the only one making the dosh in Sport...just look at the amount of money the football clubs, managers, and players make...then take a look at the earnings of the supporters that religiously buy extortionate priced season tickets and other paraphenelia!

As with anything, one mans boredom is anothers excitement and entertainment, and not a great deal happens on Sundays in Great Britain so personally I enjoy it

Re: Turkish Grand Prix - Istanbul 2011

My point is that other sports are desirous of live spectators... F1 and Bernie would be happy to do it behind closed doors. Then they could just televise it.

Re: Turkish Grand Prix - Istanbul 2011

I know! A wet Istanbul made P1 results rather interesting...


Is rain predicted on Sunday? If so, could be very exciting race Seems it may be sunny for Quali. tomorrow, though cloudy/uncertain on race day..

"The rain made Friday morning’s first practice session in Turkey something of a lottery, and as Fernando Alonso dominated it by 1.4s ahead of the Mercedes duo Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher, world champion Sebastian Vettel returned to the pits on foot after heavily shunting his Red Bull on the exit to the infamous Turn Eight."

More news here:

P1 results from this morning (Istanbul):-
Pos No Driver Team Time/Retired Gap Laps
1 5 Fernando Alonso Ferrari 1:38.670 13
