1-what is your favorite motorsport - Open wheel: IRL,Cart, F-1

2-how often to you watch - I even watch NASCAR every week, but I love open wheel racing! I watch every race I can.

3-how long have you been watching - Went to my first Indy 500 in 1983, been watching ever since. Been to Michigan 500, Milwaukee, Colorado, Pocono, Dallas, it's a blast!

4-who is your favorite driver/team - Andretti Green now, used to really enjoy Bobby Rahal (now an owner) I just wish the IRL and CART (or whatever they call themselves now! Champ Cars?)could get back together and get the big turbos back on the Indy Track! I almost hate to admit it, but my favorite driver is Danica Patrick, she grew up about 20 miles from my hometown. Yeah she looks good, but she CAN drive. I think she's been grreat for the sport. Especially for people who don't follow it regularly.

5-what is your least favorite formula. (E=2m2)kidding! I don't like truck racing!

Fummala Wun, as that renowned man of the people, Bernie Ecclestone, calls it.
I have no earthly idea why. Like as not the race will be a parade.
Maybe it's to see what sort of unintended consequences Mosely & Co can create with their constant tinkering with the regulations.
My favorite at the moment is the 5 buck air restrictor on the Toro Rosso V10, which has vaulted them from the anticipated rear of the grid to mid-pack.
All the teams that spent hundreds of millions to develop 2.4 V8s must be saying to themselves, "Now, why didn't I think of that?"

Funny enough, the race was fantastic and they seem to have gotten it right for once. Let's hope they stop messing with it for a while

Smile F-1 is there anything else?

1- F-1 & ALMS. Both are showcases for high tech.

2- All the time. I also tape them to enjoy them later.

3- On TV I watched F-1 whenever it was televised. On speed tv I watch it all the time. In person I watched GP racing at the 1957 GP of Habana. Saw Fangio win, Stirling Moss and Marques de Portago as a kid with my father. It was loud and no ads on cars at the time. Lots of Ferrari's, Maserati's and Alfa's. Next time at Watkins Glens when Alan Jones became champion with a Saudia- Williams. Ferrari was no good then. I attend the GP of Canada in June. I take my son and son in-law.

4- Drivers I enjoyed watching would say: Fangio, Senna, Schumacher, Raikkomen & Giles Villenueve, the father. Can not forget the GP of France in the eighties and watch Villenueve in his #27 Ferrari go wheel to wheel with Rene Arnoux in a turbo Renault for second place. They banged wheels at 200 mph on a long straightway. Arnoux conceded the position to Villaneuve ended in third. Teams, I like Ferrari, Williams, McLaren, Audi in ALMS series,

5- Nascar & IRL. Have total disdain for going around in a circle.

after the first really exciting grand prix of the season it as to be F1 back on top of my list, Le Mans 24 hours is something you have to be at least once in your life time.

I will miss the citroen team in the rally, but Peugeot will be back at le Mans with apparently a diesel engine (Audi also apparently)

the Paris-Dakar is also quite exiting, i nearly run it in the eighties

Alain Prost Cocoricooo!!
and in the new lads, Alonso, Raikkonen and the son of keke Rosberg who was splendid last sunday in F1

Sebastien Loeb in Rally

the most boring to watch is probably the BTCC or similar which was so good in the early years, what a shame but the top teams are gone now and who wants to follow a team like skoda?
