Anyone else getting bored with..

...Formula 1

I used to be a huge fan and have watched it since Senna and Prost were around.

I have found that lately I have been flicking channels during a race.

Have I lost my love for it? or should I stick with it?

Yes, it's been boring for about 20 years now. I also used to enjoy it as a youngster but it's too predictable nowadays.

It's nice to see a few different teams dominating this year, last 2 years have been exciting for me with a brit actually winning again

I have been a fan since the great Mike Hawthorn became the first British world champion winner in 1958 and whilst I agree that there have been some rather uninteresting years of late, this year looks like it could be the start of a new era with Hamilton, Button, Vettel, Alonso and others, all likely to be championship winners in the next few years.

It's good to see the likes of Brawn and Red Bull at the front of the pack, with the likes of Ferrari etc struggling a bit - but we are only a few races into the season. BBC commentary is dead boring. I still don't think that the pack is close enough together to give us more overtaking moves.

I agree about the BBC commentary athough this is somewhat compensated for by the lack of adverts.As for the overtaking this will become of an issue as teams adjust to Kersand the new diffusers throughout the season.

they should get rid of KERS, and give the drivers NOS.

Agreed

this year is a transition year. personally im fining it a bit more exciting than the last few years.
but you will need to wait till about mid season where you have the cars tooled up after more testing to get the pack closer together

Boring and predictable????????

So who predicted this years winners being Button and Vettel???? Brawn and Red Bull, Toyota competetive, Ferrari and McLaren not!!

Get a grip! Finally we have a whole new generation of good drivers and with the reduction of driver aids half decent racing. At last weeks Chinese GP there were over 60 overtaking manoeuvres.

IMO Schumacher's dominance ruined it for many years, it became so predictable. I much prefer it when any of a number of drivers can win, then the excitement element which has been missing for years, starts making the races much better.

Not this year i know - but i meant generally over the last few years. This year as you & others have said there are many people who could win a race. Still i feel the excitement isn't there in the sport like it used to be.
