  1. I wish Australia got coverage of GP2. Even if the talent pool is a little shallow this year, they generally provide some decent racing. Last year’s Abu Dhabi race was one of the best I’ve seen. I can only imagine what they would do on a good circuit like Sepang.

    1. I’m sure someone will have a link for us on the live blog. :)

    Is there any way of watching the Indycar live online?

    1. @sennanmbr1 Depends where you are and who the broadcaster is. I don’t believe Sky have it on their online platform but I’m not sure.

        UK and not a Sky customer :(

        1. Doesn’t stream online live for those contries that don’t have a live deal?

    2. An unofficial way to watch it is to look for the Sky F1 stream on vxxbox.

    keith i’m pretty sure the build up is longer than half an hour!

    1. @sato113 I thought it looked short but that’s what it says on their website.

      But it’s the race start time that matters and that’s definitely 9am.

      1. I see they’ve now changed the time on their website so I’ve updated this accordingly.
