    …is actually using a VPN + F1 subscription illegal – after all you are paying for it?

    Hmph. F1 cars have wings, not spoilers.

    They’re called spoilers because they mean nobody can overtake the car in front, so they spoil the racing.

    I don’t think so but it is against their T&C and they’ve said they will ban anyone attempting to use a VPN to access 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.

    Looks like Mercedes finally chucked out the sandbags. Redbull showing promise, but oh dear Williams – what were the gp2 laptimes like?

    i wonder if Williams are just hanging on until the new 2021 regs/rules/budget restrictions (or at least to see what they are like – being shown to the teams on March 26th)

    i bet declerc had brown overalls after his little bit of off roading.
    Ferrari & red bull suspiciously off the pace. suspect they’ll swap the unleaded for something richer come quali time

    Interesting piece on aerodynamics:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/47527705

    (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…

    For this that may be interested,

    Sky are offering F1 for £10 per month.

    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.

    Can anyone tell me: if I by a NowTV stick, can I buy 1 day NowTV pass and watch F1 on catchup? Or is it only live? (I see they fo a Skysports 1 year pass for £195…but I doubt I’ll watch all the races and don’t need any other sky sports stuff)

    Surely it’s cheaper to just pay Sky £10 a month?

    20 races at £9 a race is going to cost more than £10 a month for 7-8months.

    I thought the 10 quid was only for sky subscribers, on top of the existing contract? Could be wrong, probably am.

    It almost certainly is. I am, so it’s not a problem. It’s also only £8 as I already have HD.

    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.

    edit – it is for new subscribers

    Formula 1® Channel Offer: Sky TV required for £22 pm with new 18-month minimum term, standard price £27 pm outside of new minimum term. Set-up fee up to £20.

Sky Sports F1 offer: Sky Sports F1 £10 extra a month for 24 months for new and existing customers, cancellation requires 31 days’ notice. Upon cancellation, this offer will not be redeemable again.

    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.

    Just waiting to see how long it will be before Christian Horner and Max V start slagging off Honda for producing the worst engine in the field.

    Desperately trying to avoid spoilers….

    i notice the race is on Sky One tomorrow.  I assume that’s not going to be the case for the season, and of course that is the “carrot” that gets you to sign up before the April 1 end to the deal?

    Possibly shouldn’t be here then. 🙂
    I listened on BBC and think I’ll make the best fort to watch it tomorrow. Could be great if quali is anything to go by.

    A Mercedes romp isn’t going to do the viewing figures much good! Think I’ll be actively looking for spoilers

    Has anyone watched “Formula 1: drive to survive” on Netflix?
    I’ve just about finished binge watching all 10 episodes, have enjoyed it

    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.

    Williams uncovers “fundamental” fault on 2019 F1 car

    FFS. Last year’s car was the bottom of the barrel. This year they’ve opened a whole new barrel beneath that.

    Thank God for the rule changes making overtaking easier or that could have just been another one of those boring processions.

    Saw the highlights on the news. I feel like that’s enough for now

    Have to say, I hate the commentators on Sky. Simon Lazonby is outstanding in his ability to name the wrong driver in ANY race situation. I also prefer David Coulthard to Martin Brundle.

    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 highlights

    This is why I’m considering the £10 direct to Sky…

    £10 was worth the incredulous happy look on Bottas face. wait til he realises he got in Lewis’s car by mistake in the pits!
