- F1 2019 (spoilers obviously)
…is actually using a VPN + F1 subscription illegal – after all you are paying for it?
If you’ve got a subscription in one EU country and watching anywhere in EU, then it shouldn’t be blocked anyway under EU cross-border portability rules. Except for those in UK after 29th March (or whenever we leave), then they go back to blocking it.Posted 3 months ago

Interesting piece on aerodynamics:
(Takes me back to uni, although I’ve forgotten most of it long ago.)
Seems to correlate with Horner’s comments that the Mercedes looks fast but demanding (another “diva”?). But then if you’ve got if you’ve got a driver who’s not just fast but adaptable then that’s a route you can take. Alonso’s the gold standard there but Hamilton’s probably the next best thing.
For a while I’ve had my (metaphorical) money on this being another season where Mercedes overhaul Ferrari through development… time will tell.
Nothing counts for squat until Q1, anyway…Posted 3 months agoroot-n-5thSubscriber
I have to admit I do feel F1 has been stolen from the common people. Bring back our F1, think about the children.
Watched every race since Hill in ‘96, albeit highlights in last few years, and dipped in since the eighties. Not sure how good the highlight will be on C4 this year but will just have to lump it as not paying for Sky. It is £10 a month on top of the existing subscription. Thanks Bernie.
Williams don’t look too hot but rooting for Kubica to surprise everyone.
Mercedes for pole? Ferrari sandbagging? Will make for very interesting Q3, but won’t be able to watch until 12.30. Enjoy the early morning oh fortunate ones.Posted 3 months ago
Well, Now isn’t Hi def, you have to pay again or for a weekend pass to see the qualy as well, and you can’t record it.
Im tempted by the Sky offer, hi def coverage recordable around my cycling. Goddamit. It’s for 18 months with another £10 for 6 months on renewal too, so you’d watch half of 2020 and get hooked before cancelling if you aren’t strong enough.

Oh boo … Williams’ poor pace looks like it might be genuine from the first practice session. Looks like it’s going to be a tough season. I was never under any illusion that the car was going be best of the rest but was hoping for something a bit better than that to allow Kubica a few opportunities to shine but think it might be very the current car.
I hope Ferrari find their pace soon, it’ll be good to see a tight battle with the Mercs.Posted 3 months agobluearsedflyMember
Has Kravitz had the boot from Sky Sports? I’d managed to forget how annoying Chandhok is.
Merc looks a handful but fast, Vettel looks like he should be on some sort of ‘list’ with that tache and great to see Norris/McLaren in the top ten. Would love to put Alonso back in there for one fast lap to see what he could rag out of it.Posted 3 months ago
FFS. Last year’s car was the bottom of the barrel. This year they’ve opened a whole new barrel beneath that.Posted 3 months agoescrsMember
Have to agree, i much prefer DC’s commentary to SKY’s
Unfortunately due to C4 now only showing highlights 7 hours after the race has finished (today’s race) means ill no longer be watching on C4
Have bought a Now Tv sky sports pass for a year for £195 (offer ends on 31st of March)
Only downside is you cant record races to watch back at your own time and they don’t have a on demand service for sky sports on Now tv, so it means ill have to watch every race live no matter what time it starts but its better than trying not to find out who won for 7 hours and then only seeing highlightsPosted 3 months ago
