how much would you pay for this?

the $15 (10 GBP) per month online f1 channel would be pretty awesome.

The $800 (510 GBP) per year for all tv... might be a hurdle, but it's partially offset by getting rid of my current cable bill (about $360 for tv).

How much would I pay? Probably.....tops, $40/mo. $15/mo would be a dream. That level of coverage with HD streaming, live.....yes yes yes.

You gotta know to avoid social media as well as all car forums/blogs if you want to avoid spoilers. What's really pissing me off is Facebook now shows "suggested" posts with F1 news from various sites.

I see you like Breaking Bad. "Suggested post; here's how Breaking Bad ends" AVERT EYES!!!!!!!

I gave up on trying to avoid all spoilers at the beginning of 2009. The last race I successfully avoided all news about was the 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix. I went and had lunch with the GF, didn't look at my phone, and fired up the DVR when I got home.

Since then I have zero self control.

Conspiracy theorists: get your typing fingers ready!

RBR have copied Williams' hollow front hub design, but only have enough parts for Seb's car, per Ted Kravitz.

RBR floor.



Williams using the curved rear wing again.



Williams blown hub. The silver duct feeds air directly to the caliper.

That, or they are testing it on one car and leaving the other for comparison.

in my opinion, he's shown flashes of speed, but it just seems like he can't keep it together.

hmm I seem to remember a certain 3 time world champion who was willing to give him some pointers and set him in the right direction. Oh yeah that's right he doesn't need any help.

Given how hot and miserable this region is right now, I really feel for the drivers. They will suffer today and tomorrow.

I'm hoping Grosjean's performance improves on the new chassis, but I'm not holding my breath. He admitted he's struggling on the new tires.

Seemed to be lots of radio traffic yesterday indicating RBR might be struggling with brake temps on the new blown hub setup.

Interesting [Dr Evil]"lasers"[/Dr Evil] being used by Mclaren.

I'm sure they'd rather be in Bahrain than Malaysia or India.

Although the humidity is lower here (for now, anyways), there is the matter of civil unrest. I find the blowing sand to be rather infuriating as well.

We're still about 1.7 seconds off of last year's qualifying best and the track only picked up about .3 seconds between FP1 and FP2. Last year drivers were running 1:33.5 in FP1 and they got it down to 1:32.8 in FP2. Overnight the sand moved back in and times were back up to 1:33.2.

Either it's not rubbering in much this year or the drivers are being extra careful with the tires. I wouldn't be surprised to see slower times in FP3 today compared to FP2, given what happened last year.
