The Australian GP is in the Books: So Where's the Review?

As you might reasonably expect of a site called F1-Geeks, we're big fans of F1 and all things geeky.*  So it would be reasonable to expect that soon after the conclusion of any given race the Geeks would be hard at work writing up a review of qualifying and the race for our, and hopefully your amusement.  Like most, you envision us all toiling away in our dark, dungeon of a computer room, littered with empty Cheetos bags and half drunk cans of Mountain Dew and Coke Zero, frantically typing away, trying to come up with something that pleases our masters, just so we can avoid the beatings.  Then it happens; the day after the race you go online, click your F1-Geeks link eager to read the literary gold we've produced, only to find no review, no mention of the race.  "What's the deal!" you ask?  "I've been had!"

As it happens, the Geeks have busy, some would say crazy schedules.  In spite of those schedules, we like to try and get together to watch the races, which sometimes doesn't happen for several days after the race.  In the mean time we sequester ourselves off in isolation, sensory deprivation chambers, or my personal favorite, under the "Cone of Silence," in an attempt to prevent the rest of the world from spoiling the race for us.  After all, who wants a race spoiled for them?

The thing is, we figure the reason our loyal fans (both of you) read this site is not to find out who won any given GP -you can find that out almost anywhere- but rather to read our take on it, hopefully gain some insights, laugh a bit and then leave comments giving us all your perspective. 

So the reviews of the races may be posted a few days after the teams have packed up and are on their way to the next circuit, but we're hoping you'll find waiting for the write-ups was worth it.

* I confess, I never could get into Dragon Ball Z.  Or First Person Shooters on consoles. Mouse and keyboard rule!
