Unsure who's interested in F1 but figured as the season is about an hour away from kicking off i'd start a thread.

I reckons Vettle will rock it again this year, but Hamilton & Button will push him, a lot more than last year.


I also think Sky will wipe the floor with BBC's coverage. Taking Brundle off them will be a major factor.

I'm watching sky via a stream online now!

Managed to record the Quali preview and not quali.

Saw 20 minutes of the actual quali, seemed like the old BBC coverage, but only SD, not free and with adverts. There is only so much you can do with the basic coverage I suppsoe. Will try out the red button services next race.

So far, underwhelmed though.

Won't comment too much on quali for fear of spoilers. Surprising 3rd place and I thought Ferrari would do differently.

Anyone know what time the Beeb are showing qualifying? Not that it matters as I made the mistake of checking Facebook a few mins ago so pretty much know the lineup.

I think i'll invoke a self-imposed media blackout on race days and hope no one spoils it for me. Either that or someone with a Sky ID could be very kind and provide their log-in details for Sky Go...

Slept through it. Saw the result, pretty happy with that. I'll probably catch up with the re-run on the BBC later. Sky sucks.

Luckily for you Sky sucks Apple off when it comes to apps. While the rest of the world fully embraces Android Sky can't be arsed.

How is sky ripping anyone off? F1 is a free channel to those with sports package which I'm sure most footie fans have anyway. 10 a month if not, seems fair price to me

Because if you don't have Sky, it'll cost you at least 30 a month.

That's 30 a month more than I was paying to watch it last season.

What Samdy said. If you already have Sky Sports then great because as you say it's at no extra cost.

I managed to avoid hearing of any of it until I went in the bookies. Damn.

If you already have Sky HD that should read. I don't have sky sports but I get the F1 channel, for no additional cost.

Reminds me of when me and the lads went to Swindon one day, and recorded the rugby. 5pm prompt another mate rung up one of us and asked if we'd seen the rugby, he replied no, then he said 'I won't tell you the score or ruin it for you but Jonny Wilkinson's a legend'.

Match ruined.

Best way not to spoil it is not comment on it at all I reckon.
