I'm watching the Abu Dhabi race and thinking that I'd love several huge posters from this race. The views are stunning!

The contrasts of the lit track lit and the lighted buildings and dark skies.

I'd really like wallpaper for my garage. It's absolutely awe inspiring.

Now don't spoil it for me, I still don't know who's going to win. Things are still changing.

what does WPWP mean?

BTW, Jenson is the world champion, nobody cared what happened in Abu Dhabi...his fight with Mark Webber was pretty epic though.

So many ups and downs in that race. I feel so sorry for Hamilton.

Kabayusi(?) did great!

Looks like a great track. I watched this race the other day. I won't spoil it, but it was a fun one to watch

Kobayashi was stellar. If he does not get a drive next year, I will personally start an F1 team based solely on him!

(okay maybe not, but he is obviously a great driver)

+1 on Kobayashi. He was entertaining in Brazil too. It is a good story line to have him come in and be good without being dominant in GP2. He sorta slipped in under the radar. Plus it is fun to say his name...it makes me think of hot dogs.

+125326154765347625342 on DVRs, but they are not the answer to all evils - they don't protect me from bankers or lawyers.

Except he doesn't explode at the end of each test. Maybe there's a company called Mouru that can sponsor him.

In reply to 96DXCivic:

Do you have any cable/dish at all? How close are you to no longer being a broke a$$ college student? I recently signed up for basic dish and got a free DVR upgrade. Seems like a lot of places are offering this (at least for some amount of time), Time Warner, Charter, DIRECTV, Dish Network. I don't know what they offer in your area but free DVR is kind of hard to beat.

I would love to know what that facility cost to build. It's so sad that we have nothing even comparable in the US, though I would argue that one or two of our road courses are better track designs than that one.

Stupid Nascrap tracks..

An estimated one billion (USD).

Isn't there some money left over in the stimulus package?

Keizer Soze's lawyer is racing now? no wonder he's good...no one dares pass him.

One billion? pffft. you can't even get a new Yankee Stadium for that.

But that doesn't even begin to touch the costs of building the 368 (or so) square mile island it sits on.
