This weekend marks the second race of the F1 season and as an added bonus it is also the first race of the 2014 IndyCar season. F1 Malaysian Grand Prix:
Malaysia is always site of an entertaining, and at times, controversial race. For those that remember last year it was the race that involved the "Multi-21" scandal. For those that did not follow last year, the Multi-21 scandal involved Red Bull Racing and their two drivers, one of which ignored team orders and dive bombed his teammate. This fun video should jog your memory.
The race should be fun, as the weather conditions change second to second, from bright sunny day to monsoon conditions. The teams are also still coping with reliability issues of the new engines and the heat of Malaysia could be an issue. If you on the west coast (PST) you can catch the race on NBC Sports at 12:30 am Sunday March 30, or set your DVRs.
IndyCar at St Petersburg Florida:
IndyCar returns this season with the first race occurring at a street course in St. Petersburg. If previous years are any indication this race could either be one of the most exciting on the calendar or turn into a 50 lap yellow flag death march.
IndyCar is a season mixed with exciting road course and several oval tracks, including the famous Indy 500. IndyCar has a diverse field of drivers that have endurance racing such as the 24 Hours of LeMans, to even former F1 drivers such as Juan Pablo Montoyo. Take note of the schedule for 2014 and note that IndyCar makes two stops in California with the Long Beach Grand Prix on April 13th and the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma on August 24th. You can catch the St Petersburg Grand Prix on ABC at noon on March 30th.
