Where have the F1 fans gone?

mclaren-soul:

If you watched the race on Sunday you might have noticed that the grandstands were not packed. Actually, there were big empty spots everywhere - a big change from the sellouts of Silverstone and Austria.

What I find really funny is the analysis the F1 media has done of that. Instead of…

To expand on your comment on youtube, IndyCar.

Before every race weekend (outside of Indy) two to three drivers are asked to give a preview of the race. After the race, highlights, interviews.For the Indy 500, you had highlights from each practices, highlights of qualifying and they gave Josef Newgarden a camera to do vblogs this year.

They’ve got a mini series like thing called IndyRivals going on too (basically, a driver gives sound bites while they show clips of them racing).

Before the start of the season they got a bunch of drivers to do a season preview. Two years ago they had a mini series called the OffSeason. The IndyCar36 (basically 36 hours with a driver) series that they did with NBC as part of race build up? They’re on their channel with no region block too!

Most of the teams themselves have youtube channels (as well as twiiter and instagram like their drivers). Andretti Autosport took it further and teamed up with Cinsay to have their own website full of videos (for all the series they’re involved in so expect Formula E from them soon too) and the likes.

With the money F1 has, Bernie could take the template IndyCar is practically handing him on a plate and take it to the next level.

just ordered 7 bandanas for £4 

i love amazon

i only meant to buy one

oh well now i have one for every day of the week

I read this as “bananas” and was like Amy wtf don’t buy fruit on amazon that’s a terrible idea also why are you wearing them. 

bandanas makes A LOT more sense…

£4 for 7 bananas??? I’m no banana connoisseur but I’m pretty sure that’s a rip off

Maybe they’re the allegedly extinct bananas from which we get banana flavour from?

First, he is a lovely guy and a breath of fresh air but as a driver, my God, he is getting the job done.

I was so happy for him when he got that first win in Canada. He is doing the job and he is not in the easiest car to drive.

The fact he is relaxed in his personality is one thing which is great but it’s ultimately what he does in the car and he just does it. I can’t praise him highly enough.
