This season is turning out to be highly entertaining. Been several great head to head battles between the Silver Arrow teammates, Ferrari seems to more competitive than they have in years, Red Bull is on the rebound, McLaren's rate of improvement is starting to be something to watch and the US finally has a homegrown (mostly) team this year.

Any other garage folk keeping up this year?

PS: The engines still sound like my kitchen's garbage disposal.

I want to start following F1. What are the basics I need to know? Huge fan of racing in general, just not familiar with the F1 teams, big names, etc.

Who's the US team you're talking about?

Austria was 100% Nico's fault. To think otherwise is ridiculous. He claimed brake problems, but if you look at the replay he wasn't even trying to steer in towards the turn. The collision at Spain was a bit more complicated.

I had a friend spoil the fuck out of the Silverstone GP for me (seriously, who the fuck texts someone the winner at 930am on a motherfucking Sunday?!) but it still ended up being a really entertaining race (thanks Mother Nature!).

Was amazing watching almost every driver lose it in turn one and seeing them (mostly) recovering it.

Another boring race up front with Mercedes domination.

Fun stuff further back however. I've found that I'm pretty entertained every race by rooting for Kimi. He's doing some amazing stuff, too bad the car's not up to the challenge.

I'm starting to watch more and more over the last couple of weeks. The wife likes to sleep in on weekends and that just so happens to line up with early morning races.

At the US GP Gerard Butler conducted the post race driver interviews on the podium. I'm 95% certain he was drunk while doing so

Most people don't like making the switch from cigarette boats to tankers, so that seems unlikely.
