    Yeah, that is F1 driver territory. In fact, that contract is worth more than all the F1 driver deals except Fernando Alonso, whose contract is worth $37.2 million per year

    Its a great experience seeing them play. It was a good atmosphere. The fans stood up the whole game and never sat down. They have a great fan base.

    Wow. I guess I never knew what kind of money those drivers make.

    I need to learn to drive in circles. Yeah I know there is more to it than that. F1 do have to turn to the right.

    You are thinking of NASCAR. It has been a long time since an American was competitive in F1. You have to get a much earlier start - most of the drivers are involved with competitive karting by age 10. Only the very best drivers are still competitive in the sport in their mid-30s or later. Reaction times just start to fall off too much as you get into your 30s.
