    Formula E is worth catching up on for the chaos of the last few laps. Some missed time strategies there! And a nice save on the finishing line too!

    Yeah I watched it today, good stuff. Feel bad for Wehrlein though, so close on two occasions now!

    Also is it me or was Buemi's defending pretty questionable in T1 late on? Covering the inside then swinging back to the outside.

    My F1TV ruse doesn't seem to be working any more. My VPN and account is set to Luxembourg, but it is saying that I am in an unsupported region (the UK) and won't let me watch the testing. Bummer.

    Iím just watching testing and that Ferrari looks very orange in the Barcelona winter sun. I thought it was the mclaren at first glance.

    Looks like Williams are going to miss the entire first week of running because their car is not ready.

    Waiting for that first batch of title sponsor money to be wired no doubt. Hopefully they will mercifully be bought out by someone by the end of the season because I can see them folding completely otherwise.

    It would be very sad to see Williams go, especially like this.

    I wasn't impressed by the livery and missing the testing is worrying. I noticed Lance Stroll was a twat and spoke unprofessionally about them now he races in his daddy's team


    ďAll I can say is that the car was badly born last year and the engineers did not know how to develop it during the season.Ē

    ďWhen I took part in a test session two days after the last race of the season in Abu Dhabi [with Force India], I was 1.4 seconds faster in a car I had never driven. I think the times did the talking in Abu Dhabi. But itís a thing of the past. Iím starting a new chapter in my career.Ē

    Iím most interested to see where mclaren end up this season. I can put the last few years down to a shit engine, and then the first season with a different engine supplier and not much time to prepare. This season, no excuses. It wasnít that long ago they could produce a car on a par with red bull.

    Also Alfa Romeo, just because Alfa Romeo. I donít expect the top of the tree to change much. Ferrari will probably start with the fastest car by a hair, then itís all down to the development race/ drivers.

    The documentary on BBC2 about Frank Williams and the team was good.
    Shed some light on other things. It canít be easy if your brother is not helping and having the grumps for years on end.

    Yeah Williams is a sad situation. The queen should buy them if it looks like they will go bust. F1 shouldnít be so broken commercially that no one would want to buy one of the sportís greatest teams

    The queen should buy them, paint them with real gold leaf and have no sponsors, just a coat of arms on each side, oh and a flag pole with a union jack up top.

    I hope Perez takes great pleasure in destroying young Lance. Sergio is a much stronger teammate than heís had in the past.

    McLaren are setting some reasonable times. I don't think they are going to be quite as dogshit this season.

    DRS failure for Ricciardo didn't look too great today.

    I doubt that'll be the last time it happens this year. Going to be under some serious stress, and that's not a lot of material.

    NowTV to release a 9 month "F1" pass for sky sports. £195 though which is a lot more than the £150 last year. Still tempted, is this the cheapest way to watch F1 in the UK this year?

    Tough call. I made pretty good use of it last year.

    £9 a race. Not quite as appealing put that way.

    Looks like IndyCar might be on SSF1 this year...

    Those NowTV passes would be worth it if I could watch the race on demand and it wasn't still a shitty 720p25fps feed, but it is.

    I bought that £1 pass for mobile, but it doesnít have the F1 channel... they really take the piss, as Iíd be happy to pay the normal mobile price.

    I assume F1TV isn't available in the UK because of Sky's coverage?

    Correct. I've got F1TV Access though for the archive.

    Does this let you watch the races on demand after they've finished? I'm rarely up for watching it live.

    If not I'll stick to the cheap F1TV access we are allowed in the UK and just watch the 30min highlight videos when they go up.

    I love streams. Nothing more awesome than desperately trying to find a replacement when yours dies 5 seconds before the start of the race.

    Do you use Acestreams Psycho? They've generally been pretty good for me.

    From my experience, I watched the whole previous season with them and didn't have an issue. Unlike shit Kodi streams etc (I hate Kodi, I prefer downloads) but if you're that fussy...
