I never watch the races on the tv because of the bad commentary, but I looked it up. It seems the pay TV channel here in Romania showed the race live at local time 9AM and then had a replay at 30 past midnight(I assume they use F1 replays to fill in their programme when there’s no football to be shown). I can’t discuss the commentary since I haven’t seen the actual race on their programme, but I will say that they’re usually pretty clueless, so there’s that.
@Nick I don’t really believe there is any sort of Romanian connection, I was just implying that if there is any sort of deal involving Kolles and Romania, it’s more likely to be with Dacia rather than some obscure Ferrari dealership in a country which has no market for such cars.
As Dacia is part of the Renault group, I highly doubt it will have any connection with Ferrari. Also, I haven’t heard any buzz at all in the local media, but that might be just because the national media are completely oblivious to any other sports besides football. I honestly think the Ferrari dealership having the same name as the possible entry is just a mere coincidence. Kolles was probably linked to a deal with Dacia if Renault had offered quite strong backing.
@Victor_RO I haven’t been able to watch races on national TV channels for a long time anyway. Probably the last time I watched F1 on TV was in the Eurosport days. The commentary was just horrible, there are no words for how bad it was. In the days when the state-owned tv channel broadcasted the races, the commentator was busy narrating about how he went out to dinner with Schumacher’s wife. Although I’m subscribed to the cable company which has bought the rights for F1, I always watch it online on streams as both Brundle and Coulthard are miles better.
@andae23 of course it’s a one-year contract, knowing Hülkenberg. If he does make the step to a bigger team at the end of 2014, he would’ve switched teams 4 times in 4 years (full-time driver). I don’t really remember that happening before; if it did happen, it was probably a pay driver trying to swing his money for a drive from team to team..
