TV ratings for Azerbaijan:

Total viewers: 598,000 (well above the average of 467,000).

Viewers 18-46: 164,000.

Majority of viewers are old – same as other forms of auto racing in the U.S.

Liberty Media has a lot of work to do. Bringing in Mariah Carey won't be enough.

I should ask it here, as someone will answer. I have a friend who's a fan of F1 racing. He's in South Africa these days and texted me about how he can watch the grand prix in SA. Can someone tell me what advice should I give him? I think he's not on cable TV.

It was nice to have a fight for the title while it lasted. Looks like a day in the park for Mercedes from now on. Their upgrades have worked much better than Ferrari's.

Maranello seems to disagree.

Gotta give credit to Lewis for hos sportsmanship today, however the championship turns out he truly displayed a lot of class today.

Another race decided at the first corner.

Vettel's only chance to pass was on the final restart. If he could get right behind Hamilton in his slipstream he could slingshot by. But Hamilton, going up Eau Rouge, (intentionally) backed off the throttle momentarily which meant Vettel had to turn out of the slipstream to avoid him. He had no speed advantage and could not pass.

After that, even with better tires and potentially faster lap times, the aero wash kept him from getting close enough to pass.

My TIVO has a great feature called Quick Mode. It plays a recording 30% faster but preserves the sound pitch so people don't sound like chipmunks – they just talk faster. A button press to turn it on or off. With that and skipping through commercials I watched this parade in about an hour.

Ferrari really messed up today. This is not what the championship needed.

I wanted Vettel to win, but:

How can anybody blame Verstappen for the accident??

He was driving in a straight line between Raikkonen and Vettel.

Raikkonen started to move to the right and Vettel, possibly not seeing Raikkonen, rapidly moved to the left squeezing Verstappen in the middle.

Verstappen had nowhere to go.

After that it was the standard modern day F1 snoozefest.

Yeah. If there's anyone to blame for that one, it's Vettel. Gigantic mess up. He really needed the Singapore win, now it's really uphill. Malaysia will be dominated by Mercedes, no contest. The rest are either a toss up or lean Mercedes.
