Hi,

 

Thank you to SKY TV NZ for cancelling the Formula1 coverage for 2019 - they really want to lose more customers.

 

Anyway, does anyone know of alternative TV streaming subscription services to watch the F1 2019 season?

 

Since the races are at odd hours, I would like to either have the ability to stream on demand or even use Cloud DVR - so I can watch the races the following day.

 

Thank you

 

Tom

Will that be live or on-demand (the following day).

 

Also, no pricing revealed yet - or even a go-live date?

As far as I've seen there will be VOD content and I also believe it will be live before Melbourne.
Price is one thing we would like to see but I am sure it will come out in due course

Brendon Hartley confirmed as a sim driver for Ferrari for 2019.  A life line of sorts.

Cancelling?  You know how Sport contracts work right?  They didn't cancel it, they lost the bid.  Someone else bid more money than they did.

F1 pre-season testing in 2019 will take place at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya with two four-day meetings.

 

The first on-track outings for next year's new cars will take place on Monday February 18 with the first test finishing on Thursday February 21.

 

 

 

The second test will take place from Tuesday February 26, ending on Friday March 1 - precisely two weeks before first practice for the season-starting Australian GP.

Prediction: no overtaking, Mercedes and Hamilton to win, *yawn. 

 

Ideal: F1 proves me wrong.

There were some really good races, and often plenty of overtaking, but I thoink what you mean is, we habve a series like

 

All Blacks

 

Argentina

 

Tonga

 

Lithuania

 

 

 

We already know the results (slight exaggeration)

 

I wish there was not change in tech, so that the last few years of closing the gap have a closer gap. last year Ferrari could easily have won. They messed it up. With wholesale changes this year, its unlikely that any teams will be close, it will take a few years to get that , all over again

F1 is at that crossroads of the latest and greatest tech and excitement to watch as a sport.
In the modern age, computer control of many aspects is the latest, along with electricity power as well, and frankly that's not necessarily aligned to the vision of the drivers as superheros.

 

Safety and 'green' aspects have hurt the appeal of the sport, so I'm just hoping any changes made this year will have an impact in terms of following abilities etc.

Anything that veers away from that painful formula of 'race for 2 laps, fuel save, change tyres, drive smoothly, race in last 5 laps' type situation will get my vote.

Yes. If they raced the same car or same engines, its a drivers race. Then its not the pinnacle of motorsport. F2 has 2 races, why not a same car Saturday race?

 

Imagine going to a horse race. Every week the same horses are there. MotoGP is great racing, F2 and GP3 can be really good too, something needs to change

I really think the 'Green' aspects of F1 are the greatest hypocrisy ... how un-green is the whole circus from producing all the single use tyres alone (the circus runs on more than just tyres), to flying all their gear all over the world (the circus also have 1st class humans and economy class crew to cater for).

 

Anyway, I'm not here to complain that they are not green, just stating as matter of factly that they are not green and I don't see how they can ever be.

 

Now back to burning petrol .... (or kerosene)?
