Valentino Rossi said it would be a great circuit for F1. I like the gravel traps rather than pavement for runoff areas.

I thought the race itself was terrible and, except for the restarts, another snoozer.

Cold and foggy at Nürburgring, as you would expect in October.

USA TV viewers for Nürburgring, live and same-day DVR viewers, 490,000. How many fell asleep during the race, nobody knows. SKEDBALL: Weekly Sports TV Ratings 10.5-10.11.2020 | Showbuzz Daily

In a country of more than 300,000,000. As the season has progressed, the viewers have dropped out.

Because it has become predictable and boring. The vast majority of times whoever is leading going into the first turn wins the race.

Hamilton's domination makes it boring as well, just like when Schumaker was winning everything. No competition makes racing dull and makes it look like follow the leader rather than racing.

I really miss Ayrton Senna. He could have won the pole today by 5 seconds.....driving the Williams.

Snooker legend Ronnie O'Sullivan says Lewis Hamilton does not deserve to be knighted (Hamilton fans are saying he should). Sullivan says other British sporting greats are much more deserving.

"If you have a car that is going a second a lap quicker than the other cars, in theory all he has to beat is his team-mate [Valtteri] Bottas – who seems to be comfortable and happy playing second fiddle.'

"I wouldn’t have felt as good about my career in snooker if I had been playing on a table where the pockets I was using were bigger than my opponent’s.”
