TVlizer carries some sports channels live, including Eurosport France which carries some F1 sessions.

The ‘Wheels’ channel on TVU may be showing the session live. You will need to download the TVU player to view it.

There’s usually discussion about where to find the session in the comments so do check in to see what other people are using.

    I’ve only just joined Quali, what happened to Kimi?  It’s just finished Q2…I couldn’t bet on the results that have just come in!

    On you go Vettel!

    technical problem left him stuck on the track (on the entry to the pit lane) and therefore he was not allowed to continue.

    In that last session Kubica could have taken pole had he not ran wide.

    Just saw on ITV, I can’t imagine Kimi’s going to be chippy cheery, it’s not looking good when a front runner (nevermind grid car alone) breaks down.  I’m not sure about Domenica’s ability in the first qualification of the season alone.

    Massa’s obviously not got to grips with the car (TC perhaps?), I didn’t expect such a sub par performance, but good on Kubica.  Even when he ran wide it didn’t look as bad it may have seemed.

    Shame on Ferrari and Williams, good on BMW.

    Hi Loki, sorry I missed you comment earlier, the live discussion runs in a separate window – the link is at the top of the page. Do drop in for the discussion tomorrow, it starts an hour before the race and there’ll be a new post on the site for it.
