It's the same for you as it is for us when they do daytime races in Asia

I would probably tend to (subjectively) believe that it is hell watching in Australia, on a race-by-race basis.
Australia: 4pm
Malaysia: 6pm
China: 5pm
Bahrain: 10pm
Spain: 10pm
Monaco: 10pm
Canada: 4am (Monday)
Valencia: 10pm
Silverstone: 10pm
Germany: 10pm
Hungary: 10pm
Spa: 10pm
Monza: 10pm
Singapore: 10pm
Japan: 4pm
Korea: 4pm
India: 7:30pm
Abu Dhabi: 11pm
United States: 5am (Monday)
Brazil: 2am (Monday)

Given that 10pm is usually a good time to sleep on a Sunday night, that's 14 of 20 painfully fun races to watch.

Im in Eastern Standard Time and I find the "normal" F1 hours this weekend totally weird! Its thrown off my whole F1 watching routine. Alas, I am VERY excited to see how the drivers do in this first session. We don't get to see them learn a new track with such interesting features very often.

“If the grip is good and we find some good overtaking in the race — this is a question mark until Sunday — this can be probably the best circuit on the calendar,” said Alonso

"Michael Schumacher's Mercedes catches fire as he prepares to head out of the garage. Thankfully, his mechanics are on hand and have the extinguishers on it in super quick time."

Hahahaha, what else can go wrong for Michael this year?

McLaren always carries the Verizon logos in North America instead of Vodafone.

:thumbup: Verizon is Vodafone

Just a different name in different countries
Most giant companies who buy out others do this. Much like Lynx body spray is Axe in the rest of the world

Drivers are complaining that the circuit seriously lacks grip. As in like driving on a wet circuit on slicks.
