    so, BBC, which is it classed as? a Fly-Away race or a European Race. If I remember correctly, for non live races, Fly Aways were to get 2 hour show, and eurpoean to get 1 1/2hr show. Sunday’s show is only 1hr 20 mins according to tv guide. Or maybe they took a gamble and didnt expect there to be a race so had to crowbar a show into an already decided schedule?

    And in Australia we now get an SD telecast and DELAYED! **** channel ten.

    • Jenkins said on 19th April 2012, 14:00

      Yep. Living in SA we get a 30-60 min delay (Worse for Western Australians / Daniel Ricciardos family?)
      :( Looks like it will be for the rest of the year too…

      • MPJ1994 said on 19th April 2012, 14:04

        Here’s hoping there is a backlash and they put the race back onto ONE. Does anyone know if they will still stream the race on their website?

        • sozavele (@formula-1) said on 20th April 2012, 15:30

          That won’t happen even if there is a backlash, I presume you can all still watch it for free, whereas us in the UK can only watch 10 live and the others highlights.
