Like watching a car wreck

I don't even like Formula 1 racing. In fact, I don't like car racing at all. Yet, after I heard what a mess the United States Grand Prix was, I watched more than an hour of the rebroadcast of yesterday's race. Just couldn't take my eyes off this thing even though (or because) it was a complete farce.

This was just a complete joke of an event. Six cars, three teams competed. Only one team had cars with any chance of winning, so it was a battle of teammates. More than 100,000 angry fans for a sport that's been trying to crack America. I suspect it'll be a good while before that succeeds.
