Attrition Game: European Grand Prix

Valencia – home of the brightly-colored happytrack (I think crags is the one responsible for my brain now calling it the happytrack, but I am too lazy to comb through my timeline to find the exact series of Tweets.

Upgrade weekends and delayed FOX broadcasts (don’t even get me started) mean the Attrition Game for this week is fairly sparse. Unless you’re finding alternate means to pull race coverage from the UK or other parts of the world, you’re stuck waiting for the FOX broadcast in the middle of the day. It’s frustrating as a fan with a bit of a unique perspective to have to reconcile what should be done with how it’s done.

Anyway. Don’t we have an Attrition Game to play or something?

Players:

We have two winners! @fhchandler – the co-creator of the Attrition Game and my dad – correctly chose five this week. So did our friend @dr_mikki – who is an all-around incredible person (and someone I will get to meet in Austin – huzzah!). Congratulations to you both.

I refuse to give away any details of the race, but it was a stunner. Looking forward to the rewatch later today.

Attrition Game: Canada Grand Prix

I hate races on FOX. I know it’s bad of me, as it’s really good to have races where folks without access to SPEED can see what F1’s all about, but I just can’t get over the number of ads…or the need to explain things I’ve known for years…or try to dumb down terms so people can quickly grasp some of the bigger underlying concepts of F1.

I should probably shut up – could do an entire post on what I think about this topic. This post is about the Attrition Game.

The Players:

I picked three. @EusticetheSheep picked one, but got the entry in too late for consideration this week. (Sorry!)

We had four cars retire – so no. winner. again. This is getting ridiculous.

That said…seven different drivers winning the first seven races! Nothing like keeping the championships wide open to keep people watching. Think we’ll see 8-in-8?
