Pudsey_Bear Stopped watching F1 years ago, now I watch MoTo GP, much better more racing and more risk to the participants, but it too was tied down by BT sport, so only get the highlights now.

Agree. I was away at the weekend and missed the race but damn sure in future I will be able to find a stream on my Kodi box if i want to watch the F1.

That’s EXACTLY what I did.

Very Interesting result (the race that is)

and you have presumably not seen the BBC News either where some details about the start, the race and the result was shown ? You are not aware that ********************** won ?

(I have deliberately inserted enough asterisks to ensure no clues from the number.... ?)

See I do think about you, and am aware that C4 is not showing the highlights until 2.00pm GMT.

Mrplodd The whole thing is now a VERY hi tech industry and, regardless of the regs the top teams will always be pretty much neck and neck but with slight variations in car design.

I would love to see Hamilton, Vettel, Verstappen and now Le Clerc all in identical cars just to see how they perform on a level playing field.

Maybe they should introduce something like that? Something like a “Super Qualifying” lap run at the end of the season with every pole position driver having to drive the same car on the same track to see who gets THE fastest time. Could prove enlightening eh? Especially if they have to drive one of the lesser teams cars.

I have not yet watched the Oz GP so no spoilers please!

A huge change to the cars, especially to the aerodynamics allowed AND the introduction of ballast to counter driver weight differential will both have significant impacts on lap times. Plus of course there is a drastic reduction in the number of tyre compounds allowed.

Remember that 100th’s of a second per lap make (or DID make) all the difference.

Andy
Because of the qualifying positions being much the same as last year but I think it will take at least three races before all is clear?

I DO appreciate that you haven’t posted a “spoiler” above, thanks!!

Andy
No problem Andy, I had a screenshot ready to post but thought I might spoil some fun.

Unfortunately it appears Sky have tightened up on what they share, a retrograde step for fans in my view.
