It's been one of the best seasons of F1 I've seen. Really like the new track in Austin too. Those last 4-5 turns are really exciting. Plan to go next year with some friends

Can't wait to see if Ferrari has anything for RedBull tomorrow....and I am still confused about the Weehawken, NJ race next year! Two US Grand Prix's??
I hope it happens, I'll be 20 minutes away!

As Steve Matchett would say..."go on son" (Ferrari, hint, hint)!

The New Jersey race got bumped to 14'. From what I heard there was concern (and possible lawsuit) by Austin promoters because it'd come on just a year after the first Austin race

F1 fan since the mid-sixties - will be sitting in front of the TV rooting for Kimi tomorrow....

Hope Vettel wins the championship though.... 36 poles in 100 starts - amazing

I was on the list for tickets right up until they said I had to spend at least a grand a piece on seat licenses. Then have to pay what ever the ticket cost was going to be. I'll go next year though.
