"Yeah, I'm supporting [team] who I'm with today, they've got a great car. [Driver A] is in a great position, but I'm sure [Driver B] is stoked to beat him."
Stoked? Is this high profile American celeb also a professional snowboarder/skateboarder/surfer?

So you think the double points system for the final race is crazy? You should take a look at the British Superbike points system they award the top six riders 500 points each when there are two rounds remaining to create a six race shoot out so even if the rider in 7th in the champion could have still won it,,, tough titty....

OMG, Bernie is saying that Las Vegas wants to host another GP. Given how awful their previous efforts were, I would be more likely to award an F1 race to Syria than to Vegas. LOL

Just goes to show that Bernie wants F1 to be all glitz and glamour and **** the sporting side of it all dough and no show..

Edit

F1 HAS LEFT THE BUILDING...

Bernie stopped giving a shit about F1 as a sport the minute he sold Brabham up the river. The day it finally dawned on him that he didn't have to run a team to run the sport he sold a great make down the river, got his chum to donate the rights to the sport to him for a 100 years and Bobs your mothers brother, out went sport and in came profit.

Bernie has never got over the fact that he tried to play hard ball with the owner of the Long Beach circuit years ago (can't remember his name) and the guy turned round and said Long Beach didn't need F1's buisness. Ever since then Bernie has been trying to prove that F1 can be the biggest thing in the US and it must bug the living crap out of him that he just can't get it right.

LOL

You have clearly not seen NASCAR's points system this season. Top 16 drivers get set to 2000 points with 10 races left, with a 3 point bonus for every race they have won. After three races four are eliminated. Top 12 get set to 3000 points. After three more races four more are eliminated, Top 8 get set to 4000 points. After three more races four more are eliminated, Top 4 drivers are set to 5000 points, highest finisher in final race among those four drivers wins the championship.

So you should!

Anywho, if any of you were unfortunate enough to see the previous versions of the Las Vegas GP you will realise that it is a dreadful race in a dreadful place and we should start a petition to ensure this travesty is never visited upon us again. Austin is a wonderful track and looks spectacular we don't need another shit box race on a shit box circuit.

I'd rather see F1 racing round what Bernie once described as a "shitty little oval" when asked why NASCAR at the Dover Speedway got more spectators than F1 at Indy.

Well Ceasers Palace Car Park has now been built on so I think the only big land space in town would be the airport. That would be interesting to watch.
