Photos by Roberto Motta
We woke up one morning to find that our Italian correspondent Roberto Motta had sent us his photos from the F1 practice at Monza. Suddenly we realized that the season was almost over (it was MONZA already!) and we had yet to watch one race.
Although VeloceToday has covered every single Grand Prix race since 2002, we finally gave up in despair this year as no one was watching, us anyway. And so it seems that way for Speed TV too, who gave up the series to Fox who then gave the franchise, perhaps like a hot potato, to NBC Sports, who in turn has not handled it well, according the viscous vibes coming from NBC readers (on their own site!). And while the Austin F1 is still with us, and may or may not be televised on normal NBC this year, the New York/New Jersey effort seems to have stalemated.
But the beat goes on. So, to catch up then, let’s show you some of the main contenders this year along with current championship point standings after Monza. Note; they are in order, but not all have photos. Thanks for Roberto Motta’s great photography and for waking us up.
Ho hum. I guess we haven’t missed too much after all..
