That's great! Been trying to get shops of the dvd myself. Think ill order up netflix this weekend.

We here in Holland where so lucky to see it on TV after the last GP.
It was indeed a blast from the past with the cars and so on.
They should go back to those cars.
Straight body, just front and rear wings, wider cars and tires so the mechanical grip is bigger and overtaking is easier.
Not like you have now with the small wings and all sort of extra winglets gurneys,diffusers and so on.
If the cars are on one line after another they have to much trouble because of all the vacume the spoilers are creating.

regards Roy

Watched Senna as the in-flight movie on the way over to Vegas for the IIC this year. Great start to a racing week

I got to see it in the theater here in Columbus during its North American tour. It was very inspiring.

So the F1 mains are 10min long? Very cool. I wonder if the drivers get a bit tired after the race.

I picked up a set of the F104 front and rear wing sets from 3Racing. The rear is nice and straight, it even has a diffuser. The front wing however is extremely warped. Do I dip it in boiling water or use a heat gun to straighten it out? What other remedies for warped plastic parts have worked for you?

Nah, but the turnmarshalls do. Gotta do that after your race.

How bout the gas guys running an hour and their turnmarshalls having to hang around for an hour.
