If we could get a full season of races as exciting as this year's Bahrain, Brazil 2016 or Baku 2017/2018, I'd be a very happy man.

The last couple seasons have been pretty boring. Once in a while there is some action, but not often enough. I've seriously thought about switching over to Indycar but can't quite commit to it yet. I've been hoping that Ferrari and Renault/Red Bull can catch up to Mercedes for a few years, but I've lost faith in them at this point.

If you watched the Indy GP at IMS last Saturday you saw one heck of a race. More passing & a better race than F1 has ever had. I really like F1, but the racing has been pretty poor & processional. I truly hope it gets better.

Although Indy cars on an oval is not for me. Aiming at walls while going 200 MPH is stupidity of the highest order.

I've been meaning to get into Moto GP for the excitement. I'll have to check out Indy one of these days. I might be watching the Indy 500 next week, but only to see how Alonso does - Mr. Potential Triple Crown.

He crashed in practice so theres that. I hope he does well though too.

moto gp is alright, just kind of lacks something..maybe cause the following bike doesnt get much tow from aero. i dunno.


indy car racing is more exciting this year than f1, you can tell they are really fighting their cars grip potential etc.

They had electrical problems all last weekend before the crash, so it's really not looking stellar. Hoping they pull it off for a good quali and race weekend.

No need to watch how Alonso does at Indy. He was bumped out. I wonder if he'll come back next year.

Has Ferrari fixed their issues? Will the Benz boys start fighting each other? Monaco this weekend will answer those questions & more.

Yeah, I saw. Big bummer...

I'm thinking either nothing at all will change and we'll get another Merc one-two, or Max may do very well. RBR has been pretty king in the twisties these past few years.

I hope Monaco will be fun to watch, but unfortunately there's not much overtaking on that course so I'm pretty sure it'll be like the last race.

Last year was fun only because Ricciardo was on the brink of being passed for a good part of the race. I'm hoping something exciting happens this year.

I was just heading here to post; you beat me to it.

It was a treat seeing him on the grid every race weekend - still active and passionate. RIP, you legend.

RIP , he was quite young . Waiting for more details, i read in the past year or so he got a double lung transplant. Maybe complications of that.

I hope they honor him at Monaco with some type of dedicated tribute.

I'm sure he had his lung transplant due to complications from breathing in fire & fumes when he crashed in 1976. He was so lucky to survive, go on to race again & be world champion 2 more times. What a life. I sure will miss seeing him in the Mercedes garage.

RIP Niki. You will be remembered.
