The Formula Renault 3.5 exodus continues – now Norman Nato makes the switch with Arden:
He must be unique in having been team mate to two Formula Renault 3.5 champions: Magnussen in 2013 and Sainz Jnr last year, both at DAMS.29th January 2015, 8:48 at 8:48 am #291026
There’s a page dedicated to this subject in the FAQ:28th January 2015, 15:35 at 3:35 pm #290983
@davidnotcoulthard It means “something that sounds a bit posher than ‘sponsor'”… :-)28th January 2015, 10:34 at 10:34 am #29095827th January 2015, 15:44 at 3:44 pm #290896
@craig-o He certainly seemed to go better in GP2 than FR3.5 where he was struggling on his own at Tech 1 for much of the season. And had that big crash, of course. I wonder if Lotus are keeping him on or throwing all their weight behind Ocon?27th January 2015, 14:35 at 2:35 pm #290892
Here comes another Formula Renault 3.5 driver who dipped a toe in the series last year: Marco Sorensen joins Leal at Carlin.27th January 2015, 14:32 at 2:32 pm #290891
I saw the press release the other day, just looks like HP have built them a new CFD machine (the original one was built by Dell in the BMW Sauber days as I recall). There was no mention of any branding on the car so it doesn’t look like a major deal.27th January 2015, 11:18 at 11:18 am #290870

It is tricky though because the pricing structures vary a lot from country to country.26th January 2015, 18:00 at 6:00 pm #290832
It’ll be tough to live up to last year. But I’m very keen to see how Leclerc does after his excellent performances in FR2.0 Eurocup last year. And Russell too.26th January 2015, 17:58 at 5:58 pm #290831
@ares OK, but presumably you don’t have to buy one of those basic packages in order to watch TV? So I’m wondering what the cheapest one of those is.26th January 2015, 13:17 at 1:17 pm #290813
Thanks very much to everyone who has taken the time to reply to this so far. It is fantastic to see responses coming in from all over the world: Indonesia, Uganda, Tunisia, Namibia and more are now on the list.
I’ve got a few questions for those who’ve posted the most recent updates. I’ll try to incorporate any responses to them into the table in time for the start of the new season:
@knightameer (Pakistan) Can you confirm, do you pay absolutely nothing for the package that includes Star Sports, or do you have to pay for the package?
@fer-no65 (Argentina) Do you know how much the SD subscription costs?
@royce Thanks for the contribution but I think I’ll have to consider cruise ships a special case and stick to territories for now!
@ddonovan (Ireland) I already have the info on BBC and Sky but need the prices for Setanta please
@ares (Canada) Can you confirm, do you pay absolutely nothing for the package that includes TSN and TSN2, or do you have to pay for the package?
@Thaischumi @pH (Czech Republic) There are some differences between the information you have provided – could you have a look at each other’s posts and agree which parts are correct? It would be useful if you could use the template (see below):
@Pstaffan (Sweden): That’s unusual – qualifying is live on TV10 but the races aren’t? Also do you not get Viasat.se if you subscribe to Viasat Motor?
@Karmen (Spain) Have the broadcasting arrangements changed in Spain for 2015?
@F1Lauri (Estonia) How much is a cable/satellite subscription in addition to the €75.96/year for Viasat Sport Baltic?
@PawelF1 (Poland) Sorry I don’t understand how you’ve replied to the questions. Can you do one set of questions for each channel, please?
And anyone who would like to contribute can do so by posting responses to the following questions:
1. What country are you in (and state, if applicable)
2. Which channels broadcast F1 near you?
Please complete one set of questions for each channel/network which broadcasts F1 in your country
If there are no channels in your country which broadcast F1, please say so and leave the rest blank
Please don’t include details for broadcasters from other countries whose transmissions you can receive
3. Do they show all the races live or only a limited number of them live, or are they delayed (if so, how many?)
4. Do they show all the qualifying sessions live or only a limited number of them live, or are they delayed (if so, how many?)
5. Do they show all the practice sessions live or only a limited number of them live, or are they delayed (if so, how many?)
6. If they are a subscription channel, what does a full year’s subscription cost (excluding limited time offers)?
Imagine you’ve just bought a TV and have already paid any taxes or licenses necessary to use it. What is the minimum you then have to pay per year in order to watch F1?
7. Do they broadcast coverage online? If so please post link/s
8. Please supply any other relevant information such as alternative viewing options

@wsrgo I remember the article you’re referring to – there was a mistake on it initially but it was corrected the same day:
