Eurosport won't be showing this weekend's second race live. Repeats of cycling and tennis are more important.

Recap of the weekend:

Hurr, durr, I'm Tom Gaymor.

lol, Chilton.

Wow, Michigami! Doubled his points tally to a whopping two! (And he only did that through a bit of attrition.)

Was just watching this the other day. If completed, I agree it looks like a decent circuit.

As an aside, look up the one the TCR Int series are racing at too. That's a bit odd.

Nice to see plenty of new tracks in China.

What stupid penaltys are assigned to the WTCC this year. At first, Huff was hardly deserved, recently to someone else, it seems Bennani, and now in general for nothing 5 seconds for Chilton. There was no contact between him and Erlacher at all, there were not even any marks on the Lada ... It's so stupid.

Anyone else struggling to stay interested in WTCC this year? Really lacklustre so far.

I was skeptical about TCR at first but TCR has had some brilliant racing this year, whereas WTCC seems to a snoozefest

So much so they felt the need to create artificial overtakes with than silly joke lap idea in Portugal.

The DTM has been dull too except the first race of Hockenheim and the second race at Norisring

The pit lane exits under the start straight onto the outside of T2/inside of T3. In races with pit stops there could easily be crashes there. Better off exiting on outside of T1 like a normal circuit.

It's building nicely to some politics and argy bargy between two manufacturer teams for the last couple of rounds, provided that both Honda and Polestar have drivers in contention until the last race.

Not just this year, ever since they introduced TC1 I felt this way.

Standings after Argentina:

1. POR Tiago Monteiro (Honda), 200
2. SWE Thed BjŲrk (Volvo), 188
3. HUN Norbert Michelisz (Honda), 171
4. MOR Mehdi Bennani (SLR CitroŽn), 164
5. NED Nick Catsburg (Volvo), 159
6. GBR Tom Chilton (SLR CitroŽn), 147
7. GBR Robert Huff (MŁnnich CitroŽn), 135
8. ARG Esteban Guerrieri (Campos Chevrolet), 113
9. ARG Nťstor Girolami (Volvo), 69
10. FRA Yann Ehrlache (RC Lada), 45
11. NED Tom Coronel (ROAL Chevrolet), 34
12. FRA John Filippi (SLR CitroŽn), 15

With just 16 drivers, the WTCC must change rules for 2019.

I see two options: go cheap (TCR), or go big (like DTM-WTCC merger or something).
