Despite being palmeirense, was hoping for the Flu to win today so I can see the race live on Sunday :clap:

Fellow Formula1 lovers from Brazil, I have a question about your F1 race. I kind of got lucky and will attend the Brazilian GP problaby. It is quite unexpected, but all the more joysome!

I was wondering if you have any advice? Whats the best way to get to the track from Sao Paulo? And is it worth it to visit Senna's grave? Any other general advice is greatly appreciated!

Hi Requiem, check out my trackside reports from the 4 GPs I attended there, there is plenty of info (but no real advice per se).

Even after Fluminense has taken the Championship there's no certainty what Globo will do... Qual is confirmed. They can not broadcast it live on cable because of the FOM contracts. So, why don't they show their beloved Corinthians @19:30 and F1 @17:00? Because most stupid Brazilians who don't have a life still watch two of the worst ever made shows: Faustão and Fantástico... And please don't ask what shit they are about... :(

Hmm ... Palmeiras will play at race time ... maybe they will broadcast it? If so, what a day it will be, won't see the race live and will see Palmeiras going to 2nd division (yes, I'm palmeirense) :cry:

Hi Tiakumosan, I'm sorry that your Palmeiras was in the way of my Flu. I actually thought they'd give Palmeiras the game, in exchange for that 2010 help, but I guess that Fred really wanted to start his vacation right away.

As for Globo showing the USGP live, forget it, they don't care about the fans, only about their business. We'll have to wait till SporTV show the re-run at 10pm. :o

You sure? FOM contract doesn't allow it, afaik.

Edit: Besides, Globo confirmed the Qualifying on Saturday @16:00. Unfortunate they've confirmed as well some lame football game on Sunday... Where did you get that SporTV will show the race on Sunday?

Autoracing Blog (http://autoracing.virgula.uol.com.br) confirmed this. I guess it was Lito Cavalcanti information, and I am trying to double check with him.

I'd seen it on Lito's tweet feed, sorry for not mentioning it.

And I guess FOM is fine with it, isn't it what's going on in the UK with some races free to air and other ones on paid TV?

Globo's problem would be with the local sponsors, but they must have sorted that out.

Anyway is a change on Globo's politics, the clash has happened before and us the viewers where always let hanging, looking at pips in volleyball games.

They must be having an important decrease on regular F1 viewing numbers, because this year has already seen the introduction of all year pre-race show for the first time as far as I can remember. So we are slipping away and now we get some love...

Thanks saudoso and all above. I'm going to my mother's house to have a late lunch and watch the race live which means I'll score twice!

I still think they've dealt with FOM though — their contract I am sure says no live qual or races on cable. Perhaps FOM took it as an exception this time (and it actually isn't, just show the 19:30 football games or start one @ 15:00 — Globo owns all Série A schedule, they can do whatever they want). Which is weird as long as F1 will get less attendance, but if they are happy with it so are we! :D

The last thing we need is a new tilkedrome, when a refurbished Interlagos can be just fine.

Even the new Rio track, once it gets built, makes more sense.

AFAIK, none, but elsewhere...

Sauber team victim of Montreal robbery

Jun.18 (GMM) The Sauber team was the victim of a robbery in Canada recently, it has emerged.
The Swiss newspaper Blick reports that a team van was broken into in the carpark of a Montreal shopping centre on the Wednesday before the race.
Catering supervisor and truck driver Fritz Steinmann was shopping when the thief stole a laptop, mobile phone, passport, money and credit and ID cards.
“We were also the victims of a robbery in Canada three years ago,” Steinmann noted.

Initially, thanks guys for the great patience for all the photos and informations you've been posting! I wish you continue the work if possible, please!


Plus, in all fairness to Globo, it was a tricky situation that the relegation match for Palmeiras did happen simultaneously w/ the Texas race, given the circunstances honestly (and that's me) I don't condemn them, at least they gave us the option to see live in Sportv and then full replay of the race in alternative time in main channel. Nonetheless, also giving credits where is due, it was a very welcomed addition the 30 - 40mins of live pre-race broadcasting with in-track personel, that deserves a congratulation, too. Hope the good trend continues...

Anyways, really liked this lastest Bem Amigos, despite the emotional moments of Felipe, it was nice to see Galvao and Massa openly calling the incompetence of our automobile confederation, applaud them for that!

They should broadcast the whole race, not only the first hour.

Yesterday on FP2 they said Sportv would broadcast at 20:30 the whole race :down:

I would prefer it too.

Effin SporTV runs 45' cut of the race. They had a 2h slot for the race so I just skipped Globo's first hour and avoided internet the whole afternoon to pick the whole race with recorded live timing. Bastards.

BTW, how was the game at 4pm? Who won it? I still don't know.

If by "over there" you mean Miami, the answer is yes. I think Brazilians are chiefly responsible for the recovery in Miami real estate.

Latin Americans as a whole are chiefly responsible, but I haven't noticed any particular increase in the percentage of Brazilians living in the fastest developing parts of Miami (Brickell, downtown). IME, it's been mostly Ecuadorians, Colombians, and Venezuelans.

Brazil 3 x 0 France. A boring game. :down:

I watched the first hour on Globo and watched the rest on SporTV cut.

A few years ago I would've understood, but isn't there enough passing in Interlagos already these days with DRS and all that? I don't get it. Or are the pits moving to that straight, and that's just to extend the straight slightly longer so that it's easier to connect a pit exit to it?
