From an F1 worker

OK, folks are asking, here's what I've got. This is the most recent preliminary schedule sent to F1 workers (most recent in that I've received 2 others before this one). Times for the F1 sets haven't changed. Times for the support race groups keep changing. Given some of the things we've been told, I fully expect more schedule changes before the first car ventures out Friday morning. So don't take this as anything official, just the current thinking that's been shared with us folks on the ground

I'm 101 miles away from the track. I desperately wish I could go this year.

Tickets were out of my price range.
