Formula 1: Are there any fans here?

I'm a big Formula 1 fan and I was wondering if there were more people out here who watch Formula 1.

And has anyone seen the race in Monaco today?
I loved the race. It was very exciting to watch. At the moment I'm still pro Alonso eventhough he didn't do too well today. He let Heidfeld and Webber pass him too easily.

But I'm glad Schumi 1 didn't win.....again

I have been F1 fan for a long time but ever since Damon Hill left the show I couldn't find a personal favorite driver.Perhaps Alonso can do something about it .I'm beginning to like him.Today's race was good,but it can't compare to the one when Schumi was chasing Alonso for 10 laps.Glad he didn't make it

I used to watch the old school guys like Prost, Hill, Mansell, and the great Ayrton Senna. But since I moved to the west coast, I don't watch as much anymore. Plus since Schumacher has dominated for so long, it was kind of boring until this year.

I was a huge Damon Hill fan back in the day. He was the man.

These days I try to take a keen interest, but its tough as the races are shown very late here. I've missed the last couple, I wanted to watch Monaco but just couldn't stay up as I had to do stuff this morning.

Try as I might, I just can't get as into it as I used to be about 8 or 9 years ago.

I'll keep trying tho - if only for this thread!

I read that thinking that 9 years as though it was like early 90's but shit... thats like 1997. Just when I was really into it was well... Villenueve vs Schumacher

Man I'm getting old.

The Schumacher Streak has killed a lot of interest.

I used to be a fan back in Senna's glory days... I'm starting to like it again, probably because Michael Schumacher is no longer the permanent number 1.

I started watching F1 in 1997 too. I've seen Villeneuve win the title. That has been quite a while now, yes. But for me, there's still one thing that hasn't changed: I hated Michael Schumacher then and I still do now.

I'm glad to see that there are people here who now Senna, Mansell, Damon Hill and Alain Prost. My favorite of these legends is Ayrton Senna.

But I wouldn't dare to tell you who I was a fan of back in those days(1997)....

I'm huge a MaClaren fan since I started seeing F1. I loved (and love) Senna and I really dislike shummi.

Go Alonso and Kimi. For me, they're the future of this sport.

oh and I should praise Monteiro because he's portuguese like me. He's driving an horrible, very horrible car.

Senna was the Ali of F1, if perhaps without the accolades to make him THE greatest.

Great character, great driver, great loss.
