I’m certainly no expert, but what makes me such a fan is that the level of competition creates the need for amazingly imaginative strategy. The highest performing cars, the best drivers, the most challenging tracks, bleeding edge technology, and the biggest budgets. Planning the day before how to enable your car to be in front after the last pit stop with only a perfect drive is very impressive. One, two or three pit stop strategy is very exciting to the F1 fan, knowing that the only way your team or driver can win is to squeeze out tenths of a second on a light fuel load for an extra few laps while his opponent is in the pits so that when he pits, those saved tenths enable him to rejoin ahead. Watching the pit crew get the car in and out in six or seven seconds with new tires and a load of fuel is also great fun for the fan. The rare but exciting overtaking on the track is sometimes awesome. My spouse loves it as much as I do and we’re looking forward to the Monte Carlo Grand Prix next week. I guess it’s not for everyone, but for those who love the pinnacle of high performance combined with brilliant strategy it’s wonderful.
