just had this in my mind...i hope in the near future, there would be a motor race - formula 1 style in the olympic games...imagine the names that would enter for each country....alonso for spain, raikkonen for finland, michael schumacher for germany, lewis hamilton for great britain, bruno senna for brazil, and all of the top names in motorsport

I'm not particularly interested in watching young Chinese girls miming/lip syncing,the F1 with a new track and a close championship is 100 times more interesting.

Ditto. You can add fake fireworks to that as well.

There was a report that Chinese gymnasts lied about their age. That sucks.

A1GP means to do that,and fails to attract big names.
