  1. I hate it when the clocks go back/forward – for some reason my brain really struggles with working it out. Do we lose an hour or gain an hour? We gain an hour this time right? :(

    1. We gain an hour. To be precise, we get back the hour that we lent during the Australian GP weekend :)

    2. Spring = Forward. Autumn = Fall – that’s the way I remember it anyway!

  2. I’m going to have a day off tomorrow so that I can follow the Indian GP weekened from the beginning. Not sure I’m going to wake up to watch FP1 but later (for FP2) I plan to join F1F Live for the 1st time!

  3. 5:30 AM race for me…might be a downloaded race weekend.

  4. 10:30 am is when the race will begin in the iberian countries.

    1. That’s the same for Italy.

  5. That’s if we get a race to watch…power has gone down two times already in India

    1. @racingfanatic96

      Speaking of which, Marting Brundle doesn’t have much of a view and he’s not too happy about it:


      1. Doesn’t look nice, no natural light for 1hr 30mins in somewhere as hot as India. Somehow I don’t think there will be a gridwalk

      2. What? A brand new circuit build from the ground-up, and the commentary boxes don’t even have a window overlooking the main straight?

        Part of me hopes that it’s because the real commentary boxes haven’t been built yet and will be ready for next year.

        The other part of me thinks that a track shouldn’t hold a Grand Prix until it’s actually ready to.

        1. agree, its a joke that India and Korea can just walk into the F1 circus with undercooked facilities and Bernie was giving Silverstone a hard time for years.
          I know in the 70s and so on they had a non championship race a year before to see if they met the standards. Surely these tracks today could at least have a national race first or some form of racing before they got the go ahead. Even recently as Singapore, Bahrain, China, Turkey and Malaysia were properly prepared before F1 came

      3. Hmm, not much point them actually being in India really, is there?

  6. Too much to content,regarding Clocks going backwards,having to wake up slightly earlier,Speaking of waking up;Timing & Basic intelligence to crucial.Well at least its not as early as Japan & Korea.

  7. Experience or no experience, that commentary setup is a very poor do.

    1. @MattHT Pretty dreadful!

  8. Speed Channel does fine with that kind of setup and has for many many years. Sports Broadcasters call the action off of what they see on TV anyway. Don’t get me wrong Natural light is always good thing, but still they have everything there that they need to call the race.

    1. Not if there’s a power cut. Which is more likely than usual due to the unreliable electricity supply.

  9. Gonna be an effort to get back home in time for qualifying after being out tomorrow night!
