Why do we need last year's champ results in this thread? Teams & driver lineup would be better

Subject to how good the coverage is, I'm quite happy to see that Foxsports will have live coverage for this weekend instead of just OneHD/Ten.

Will they also cover the rest of the season?

Fox has the whole season man (and Ten only has half of it). It should be all the same coverage Sky has (not sure about red button stuff).

If you and Nis could do arse a favour: Try out Foxtel Go (or whatever it is) this weekend and see how much F1 coverage extends to streaming. If all sessions are streamable I may fold and get it.

I can tell you right now all sessions will be streamable. It's on Fox Sports 5 which is streamed live on Go all the time.

I'm pretty certain normal foxtel will have all the red button stuff too - or at least some of it - as the v8bogancars coverage has a heap of that stuff. Fox are pretty awesome with sports content. That won't be available if streaming tho. Foxtel Go app isn't that smart.

I'm heading to my parent's for the weekend to watch it on Fox on their stupid 4k 65" TV

Also, have a read of the VDG/Sauber appeal on Adam Cooeper's shitter https://twitter.com/adamcooperF1

Sounds like Sauber have absolutely no basis for appeal and the judges are laughing their tits off at their poor form. Verdict at 4.30pm local time.

Tl;dr of twitter/reddit is that VDG won the Swiss case in December. Sauber officially terminated his contract early Feb for breach of contract for speaking to the media (bahahhaa). Ericsson and Nasr were not informed of that hearing until VDG launched the legal action in Australia. Banco do Brasil have said they will terminate their sponsorship if Nasr doesn't race this weekend.

So yeah, Sauber are fucked.

Yeah, he's definitely their best shot at points by a large margin.

Supposedly Ericsson brings more money than Banco do Brasil and paid at the very least a significant amount of it up front last year to keep them afloat. They have shot themselves in the feet big time, because regardless of whether or not they win the appeal they have pissed off 3 drivers and all their sponsors.

Meanwhile, it's not over in court. From @adamcooperF1:
  • @GvanderGarde has filed a Contempt of Court Application to force @SauberF1Team to comply with the order
  • @GvanderGarde's lawyer talking of "potential sequestration of @sauber's assets and committal of its directors" if team doesn't comply
  • And Justice Croft agrees and asks @SauberF1Team to provide list of assets, ie the equipment that's here in the paddock
  • Court proceedings will continue tomorrow at 1030am, ie two hours before practice starts.

This is crazy

I know I can buy at the gate but is it more expensive than what prices are at the moment?

I don't really feel like paying an extra $20 for the pleasure.

Will drop you a message, your number finishes in 913 yeah? Will have a mate from Canada with me.

Ok, the website is buckling and it's difficult to sign up. I created an account but it keeps giving me unspecified errors. Anyway, looks like it's going to look something like below. Giggigty!

Apparently your account login will work across desktop & mobile app too.

So next chapter in the Saga of Sauber is the Contempt of Court hearing that kicks off in 20 minutes I believe. Mixed reports of VDG being in the paddock/locked out of the paddock, but suggestions that Sauber didn't even attempt to rush the superlicence application through. If they're found in contempt of court today, their cars will likely be seized and it's weekend over for Sauber.

F1, you are never boring off track, even if you have boring races like Sochi.

Quality of Go is like a high quality low res stream. Great frame rate but not HD.. I currently have it full screen on my 2nd monitor (1680x1050 22") and it looks reasonable. It's reliable.

The couple of HQ reddit streams are much better quality, but at least you know fox isn't going to get DCMA'd at any moment


[ed] lol just after i posted that it starts buffering on & off. Most of the time it's great. Prob getting smashed by all the F1 fans trying to watch at work
[ed2] was only a brief spat for a few secs. Has been fine since

F1 site is completely broken There's a "problem with my account" (presumably CC details), which I can't fix because they haven't enabled account management pages yet. I can log in, but timing says there is no session running.

Launching a public beta on the first day of the season. You stupid ****s.

To be fair, I don't think Bernie can be blamed for the backend failure of an otherwise very promising website overhaul.

Unless he forbade them from testing it before the AusGP. Which is possible.

Well, I've managed to catch every race every year with almost no need for Ten's coverage! Just get the streams from /r/formula1 every weekend.

That said it can be a PITA staying on top of it as streams die. That's why I'm on the verge of getting Fox, as dirty as I feel about it. I can't put a dish in, but the old man has one - so he'd get the box (and his rugby), and I'd stream all the F1 coverage via Foxtel Go. $25ea/month doesn't sting too much.

You mean Foxtel Play? It's the same price as regular Foxtel. You have to pick a "genre" category before you can add the sports.

Guess I'll be checking out the streams when needed.
