just wondering does anyone else watch this

it seems to be on nearly every weekend that F1 isnt which is perfect -its not quite as good now as Mueller has left but its still worth watching especially on a sunday afternoon - some of the driving is immense & some fabulous overtaking - definitely another great sport :clap3:

Yvan Muller is a miserable git. Probably. It was on ITV after Imola - terrific racing. And great that a privateer won, and that the works Honda team gave him spare parts to help fix his car. Now that's sportsmanship.

Mueller may be a miserable git (and he probably is) but you have to admit that hes a great driver - i loved all the fights between him & Plato :clap3:

yeah was really good a privateer won you could see how much it meant to them - he fairly kicked a## :thbup:

obviously im a Turkington fan - got to support the local talent - i think its amazing how they launch them cars round at serious speeds side by side most of the time - brilliant stuff :D

I remember Ivan Muller from the V8 Supercars last year at Bathurst.

He drove from Team Betta Electrical and i remember all weekend he was complaining about he heat inside the car (40 degrees Celcius) so Betta Electrical tried something during the race.

Then he told his pit crew that it was too cold.

You just cant please some people.

BTCC is NOTHING compared with DTM. Jamie Green got pole for both the opening race and this weekend's race yey :) Hopefully there'll be another British DTM champ this year

I think BTCC is more of a contact sport than DTM.........

hmm... not sure, there have been some moments in DTM where you would have expected them to dish out penalties but haven't - see some of the norisring race from last year.
