Why the gently caress do people hold Monaco in such high esteem? It's a garbage race and the only interesting thing about it is the mystery of how Fraudberg won three times in a row there.

Admittedly the concept of permanent graphics is relatively new to F1 but I'd like to know what people had in mind. I also imagine this is roughly the third of people that haven't been watching since the dawn of time. I grew up in the era of big yellow boxes and gosh darn it they told me all I needed to know.

Monaco is all about the qualifying and it's loving ridiculous driving those cars around the tiny streets, it's quite the spectacle.

Remember, a lot of these fans are old, Monaco is glamorous to them. Jet set life style and all that.

Half the questions are equivalents of "Which of the following have you heard of?". Though its amusing to think the two Manor drivers are the most hated

The Hungary GP is the first F1 race I've watched and as a new viewer of the sport I think there should be a permanent picture in picture of Maldonado at all times

Monaco is only really good if there is massive attrition, and that really doesn't happen anymore. It's a poo poo circuit. Frankly I'm surprised Hungary is that high.

Monaco is great becuse the right way to do the season as a difficult engeneering challenge is putting the same cars in wildly different settings. (With common sense modifications like a better steering rack for monaco). I'm all for old hockenheim and monaco sharing the same calendar. Hungary is more often than not a fun race (isnt it really rare for a pole sitter to win there?)

I've said it before, but F1 fans are awful. They are the LAST group of people who should have a say in the sport's future.

I was just reporting. Besides, I know they are awful, these people want refueling and are against qualifying races.

But like was said, we all don't give a gently caress about Red Bull.

I mean, since you asked it is in that "Poison/RATT" catagory of odd 80s bands before the 90s put rock back on track, with a dash of leftover progressive rock. Normally i keep this to myself because i know how beloved they are. I suspect queen would have faded by now if it werent for AIDS and "The mighty ducks".

Sorry, i forgot music is objective. I dont want to downplay his amazing skill. I put him by far and away the greatest rock vocalist of all time.


*sigh* even with a record, or nearly record-number of races there are too many long gaps.

Here are some interesting ones:
And there is more I haven't cover like reverse grids, customer cars, two tier event with spec, etc

Reminder that this survey took like an hour to fill out so only hardcore f1 fans would have bothered and anyone under the age of 25 wouldn't have had the attention span.

Anyway, what's this nonsense I've heard today that Jenson is rumoured to be one of the new top gear co-hosts? I'm not sure how I feel about this but suspect it's a load of bullshit anyway. Here was me hoping for just one more season in F1 after 2015.
