Un comentario sobre “When I started to watch Formula 1.”
yo también comencé a ver la f1 en 1997 🙂 y lo deje en 2008 cuando la televisacion de arg paso a cable, y ademas porque ya no fue lo mismo sin hakkinen vs schumacher. para mi la mejor época fue 1996-2000. el punto culminante el año 2000 (casi todos pilotos veteranos ese año) .
volví a ver la f1 recién a finales del 2018 y ahora veo completa la 2019, por lo menos para mi es todo nuevo ahora.
