Good to see the season underway and that Australia is the first race

I'm glad ferrari are struggling and that my favourite team.. lotus Renault.... have a good car with petrov doing a lot better than I expected. However if heidfeld doesn't improve someone else should get a look

I think Petrov drove a great race. Releived that my favourite team has finally got it's act together McLaren.

I'm with you on Ferrari that was good to see.

I find the whole F1 a bit of a yawn nowadays (but I bet Bernie doesn't!).

If you find it a bit of a yawn why did you trouble yourself to open the thread?

I'm annoyed because I forgot which way the clocks went and turned the TV on just in time to catch the last lap.

Then my sister came round to visit just before the 1pm repeat

Good point, and I'm not sure!

It's one of the unwritten rules of the forum. If anyone starts a thread on F1, someone shall respond as to how crushingly dull they find it. There will usually be some mention of 'paint drying'. Other rules include; If a football thread is opened, someone must trot out the tired old cliche about all footballers being on £3million a week and being girly boys. If a rugby thread is started, someone must quickly twist it into a tired old rant about how rugby is 'better' than football. All naysayers are then to continue 'bandwagon jumping' until such point as the FE shows a modicum of support for the thread subject at which point they will 'switch sides' and say things along the lines of "As FE has correctly pointed out...", or "Good point FE!".

You hit the nail on the head there!!!

You forgot to mention the anti Ferrari bit as well that always gets mentioned.
