After much anticipation, the Formula 1 season begins this weekend. We'll see who made the most of the new rules, including the exhaust routing and front wing tricks most of the front runners have spent the off season perfecting. Will Redbull and Newey walk away from the field in time attack or will there be a bit more parity at the top? Is Schuey going to have a competitive car? Will Webber ever win a Driver's Championship before leaving Redbull? Only time will tell. The 12 hours of Sebring is also this weekend, live via webcast and replayed on ABC the Sunday after it's completed. Look for new cars from Audi (R18 E-tron) and Porsche (new 911 GT3 RSR) in the field, along with the usual suspects from ALMS. Last but not least, today starts the NCAA Tourney. If you're reading this, it's too late to make a bracket so just pop on the tube and to watch the craziest weekend in collegiate sports all year; the first two rounds of the tourney. Enjoy the warm weather and green beer this weekend.
