    I would watch it if it were all the current F1 drivers because of thier Sim experience

    Then if they added some drivers from the past and today's E-F1 guns it would be very interesting

    Not so sure about that ~ hell of a lot of money tied-up with F1 events, and you know what they're like about money ; they never want to loose any.

    Ross Brawn is betting they'll get 17 races done this season* ... I'm not so sure about that either..

    They only need 8 races to constitute a season ; my hunch is they might get 11 races done (because they'll need that many races to make up for the losses incurred from scrapped events)

    Time will tell ... for sure a lot of people are wasting money on their FOX/SKY sports channel subscription this year.

    Yeah, will be interesting, personally, i cant see it happening (depending on country)
    This SARS CoV 2 is with us for years now

    They will have to have testing done on all patrons attending the event.... How?
    So that means 14 days lock down, BEFORE you get tested etc......

    Just can't see how you can have any mass patron event until they nail a lot more down

    So far Governments are just tagging us alone, so the panic isn't worse than it currently is... drop feeding us

    IDK, still speculative on various countries rules regarding international travel & on social distancing in the short term future.

    What a brilliant Race this morning, sadly, it was better than Real Life, with the lead changing some 60 times

    I hope a little gossip from the real world is permitted in this virtual escapade.
    IMO a much needed and wanted comeback chance for Ricciardo if this really happens:


    ...yeah and ABC link, better put on my flame suit.

    LOl, you're ok Uncle, I heard this rumour a month or so back, the questions now are where is he going & who gets his seat.

    F1 has a couple of speculative articles on the subject, interesting, informative reading, but still speculation for the most part.

    Sadly it looks like Ferrari have decided on Carlos Sainz based on Ricciardo's poorer performance last year.

    Ricciardo brought a fun element to F1, maybe the conservative Ferrari does not like that either.

    Ricciardo will be out of contract this year. Shame if that is the end for him, well at least he got a bit of money but money does not buy everything.
    Back to Red Bull....??

    Ricci in a Ferrari would really get me back watching every race!! You never know but I think it unlikely.
