+1 falling asleep towards the end.

Maybe 2 nice passes at the beginning of the race.

Lewis had a bad start--wonder if it was due to his mismanagement of clutch/engine or just the car itself? Either way, something they need to work on.

Uneventful race. Good result for Alguersuari though finishing 8th.

I think I've seen the graphics for one of the Ferrari on the start, and either Alonso or Massa emptied the KERS allocation.

I actually fell asleep when there was 7 laps to go. Valencia dishes up another snore-fest.

Let's hope Silverstone is a bit closer - although that is traditionally a very strong circuit for red bull.

I think Sutil made his opinion of the track known.

Boring. Tweaking the technology to try to enable passing just avoids the issue that some tracks are inherently dull unless there's rain or driver error.

That coverage is great isn't it? So much better than the commercial every 4 minutes we get with Fox.

Big Vettel fan, but this race put me to sleep...doesn't help that this track blows...it isn't even the slightest bit interesting, and has absolutely no flow to it.

And how anyone can put up with Matchett and Hobbs blabbering on is beyond me...BBC FTW

You're my hero now!!!
Now I'm even considering just ditch SPEED's live broadcast!!!
I hate they had to squeeze the "grid lineup" and "storyline" during the short parade lap and barely finish before the 5 red lights are on.
I hate when they cut into commercials when there's actions.
I hate when they cut into commercials on inlap after checkered flag and cut out the entire parc ferme.

You really can not beat the BBC coverage, their broadcast is unbeatable and the access they have around the pits/garages/grid/etc is amazing.

What is a reliable site to find the bbc torrent? How soon after the race is it uploaded? Hows the quality?

Thanks!

yea, thanks for that link man, you have saved F1 for all of us. The only downside to the stream link, is that its not as good of HD as the speed broadcast but thats a small price to pay.

I too will never watch SPEED again, from now on, BBC stream FTW

Wow that race was boring. I was more interested in fixing the bicycle in front of me than watch the race.

And I put on the race so that I could procrastinate fixing the bike.
