I received my first speeding ticket when I was 18 years old. I went on to receive 5 moving violations during my 21st year of life. I've had countless speeding violations on my motorcycle--which is why it's a good thing I've switched to bicycling. I love to go fast, and I love watching others go fast.

That's why I love watching Formula 1 automobile racing. Open wheel cars on city streets, courses in some of the best urban environments in the world--what's not to love? And now NBC is airing the races for all in North American to view.

My friend Denny, who lives on Whidbey Island, shared the following YouTube video with me. It explains the difference between the 2013 and 2014 Formula 1 cars. It's worth watching, even if you're not into this type of thing.

Also, check out the trailer for Rush, a film directed by Ron Howard (now available on Netflix) about some legendary Formula 1 racers.
