I grew up in England and I love Formula one racing, not just the cars and the glamour but the personalities and the drama that surrounds each team. It is a truly international sport with teams and racers from around the world.
This mornings race was in Melbourne, Australia, the problem is that it is shown live on the Speed Channel, at 3.30 am and I missed it! I know a Super Life Coach should set her alarm but really 3.30am and no repeat later in the day for those of us who are not truly nocturnal! The other problem is that each country that they race in is in a different time zone so next week in Malaysia will probably be in the middle of the night too.
The BBC will let you watch the race on their website but not in the US. Why can't we choose the provider of our entertainment as in a free society, where the company providing the best product will win? I thought that was the idea of competition?
OK, Rant over-I had to watch a highlight reel online. The great news is that Jensen Button,(British) won! Rule Brittania - until next week! I am sure Alonso (Spanish) will be back with a vengeance.
My goal for next weekend - find out the time of the race, set my alarm and make myself a nice hot cuppa tea to keep me awake.
Well this is the chequered flag for this blog. Next time I will see it live.
