  1. bbc qualifying highlights?

    1. They are just underneath the table. It seems that @keithcollantine has made a small mistake :)

  2. can the gp2 or gp3 titles be wrapped up after race 1?

  3. Australia will get qualifying live on One and race on Ten for everywhere else except for Perth who will see it on One

    1. @william Argh! Back to blur-vision!

      1. @stretch – but Ten are simply the best broadcaster in Australia at F1 and I hope they get V8s as well. I don’t see why would you complain at all be grateful that is on Ten and not Fox Sports. I am getting every qualifying and race live on One. I don’t know what Ten’s plans are for next year

  4. @william Do you have any races on Ten? I just want sports in HD, it’s the only thing I watch from our TV networks. All they seem to be doing lately is pinching bandwidth for their 24/7 shopping channels.

    If FOM would do a HD streaming subscription of all the sessions just like MotoGP does, I would jump on it right away. You hear me Burnie? No, probably not…

    1. @stretch – Yes the Canadian GP and Australian GP. I know that but everything should change next year as no analogue. The old TEN HD may be back next year. But those 24/7 shopping channels are useless and I hope there will be a red button to view the practice/races live.

      Ten should have V8s not 7

      1. @william I think the government eying off selling the spectrum freed up to the mobile networks as it’s quite valuable, so we’ll see what happens. More could be allocated for FTA but I not getting my hopes up for HD main channels.

        Yeah Seven always seems to cram the time slots. I don’t really watch them all that much anymore except for the endros.

        1. David Gyngell has said that Nine will be in HD from Jan 1 2014. Seven sucks at V8s as I would rather back the 1997-2006 era broadcaster. Ten’s Upfronts will be very shortly

          1. @william Sounds good, fingers crossed Seven and Ten follow suit.

  5. @stretch – Ten will I think and 7 won’t unfortunately next year as we will be stuck in the dark ages. Due to Ten’s Wake Up I think the last 2 rounds will be shown on One

    1. @william If Ten show every race in HD I will be happy. I think their deal with FOM runs out at the end of the 2015 season. They might do COTA race on One as its the same time at the breakfast talk shows (6am), but Brazil is 3am so they could go either way.

      1. @stretch – that is correct where as MotoGP is at the end of 2014 season. Breakfast shows start at 5.30am. Ten should renew the rights for MotoGP/F1 next year as no other networks seem interested

  6. Ahhh, here in the USA we get no live quali, followed by the most ridiculous broadcasting choice yet–a one hour delay. ONE HOUR? This manages to **** off everyone, you have to be up early, but you can’t watch live…. I’d be pulling my hair out if I had any.

    1. @methylone Wasn’t qualifying live on CNBC this weekend in the USA?
