I have to record it and watch it with my family in the morning. I'm excited though.

It was a wild 3rd practice and I'm anticipating a wild qualifying as well. It'll be interested to see the new format. I hope it works out.

Too exciting for me to wait. I promise no spoilers.

Just got home from work but I may catch some of it. I'm amped too! We watched FP 1 and 2 three times. Confused about what team to pull for now but Haas is looking like our choice. Eden loves the Renault livery but she loves Grojean also.

This new format is retarded. Who thought this up anyway? No doubt it greatly reduces the show for the fans. Fewer cars on the track. The whole thing is determined in the first few minutes.

I'm a long time McLaren fan. My son pulls for Hulkenberg.

That was about a big a fail as one could imagine, from the perspective of a show for the fans. As David Hobbs said, "If you had paid three hundred bucks to have a seat near the track and nothing to watch you would be pretty upset"

I was kind of hoping it would be more exciting than last year, but it's even worse... how boring can F1 be? F1 is digging it's own grave if it keeps this up.

+1 I fell asleep while watching Q3.

The start of each session was exciting. The end no so much. Even the TV director was caught out. They had commercials during the most exciting parts while showing the empty track at the end of each session. Q3 was a major disappointment for most fans. I am mostly interested in the small struggling teams so Q1 is normally the most interesting to me.

It was funny how some of the announcers called Renault "Lotus". As opposed to previous years when they called Lotus "Renault".

Watched Q1 and Q2 last night. I do agree not as exciting but it's not race day yet guys! Oh and the new system is just stupid... It will take me until October to figure it out probably.

Hard to say who I will be routing for this year. I found myself hoping Renault will do well, but I think I'm going to pull for HAAS and Grojean. What I'm really hoping for is actual racing this year... Not having Hamilton win by a lap every single race. The best racing were the battles for 7th-10th place last year. Kinda want to see some excitement up front.

Please help me here. I'm sure there must have been worse, less thoughtful rule changes in the overall sporting world. But I can't come up with one.
