Wow I see I'm the only one who voted for watching the A1 :D

Oh well I think that one is the most importand things I do of the options mentioned above. I just got kinda entousiastic after seeing the A1 in Zandvoort last year, that was just great. It sure isn't F1 yet, but it is nice.
I am counting down till march, but not biting my nails (I'm too fond of my nails to do that, they're rather long and I use them often, so would be a shame to bite on them :P )

As for the other stuff, well I don't own a F1 DVD so I do watch some of the old F1 online and stuff but not too much. I dreadfull suck at racing games, so I don't play them. (aside from Batraces, which is fun to play, not that I'm being verry good there)

But it also helps to just hang around here at the forum, and the other forum. And going to the winter endurance race yesterday was also great. Sure boosted my morale a bit , was great walking in the pitlane and watching the pitstops and stuff. Just being at a race. But it also made me realize even more that I miss the F1. And I surely don't like the wait at all....*sigh* still over 2 months to go.
But we at least have some testing, A1 racing and team presetations to look forward to, so I can't really be gloomy untill March.

Actually it is about them and their career not the accident. It includes Graham Hill, Bandini, Rindt and other great drivers. It is nice to learn how great these drivers are , I think

The F1 racing mag takes me about 3 days to read when I combine it with real life! However, I watch NHL hockey and I have a lot of schoolwork to do!
