Final Weekend TV Ratings

Aldo Costa makes unbeatable F1 cars
Aldo Costa makes unbeatable F1 cars

Proving once again that even a Mickey Mouse Roval is more entertaining than watching cars drone around in circles for hours, both NASCAR races at Charlotte got a ratings boost this past weekend.

The F1 race took a hit now that everyone knows Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes have the 2018 titles wrapped up again. Mercedes designer Aldo Costa made Michael Schumacher and now he is making Lewis Hamilton into the next super hero. Unfortunately the races become too predictable and people do not watch – you simply do not beat an Aldo Costa designed F1 car.
