Thats sounds pretty interesting. Im going to check that out. Thanks.

On another note...Have any of you seen the movie Rush? Its about the 1970s rivalry between Formula One rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauda. It was pretty good.

Ive heard mostly good things about the Netflix series. Some teams, Mercedes, chose not to be part of it. I get the impression its a lot of Danny, whos very good in front of camera. Im not paying for Netflix just to watch it.

Rush has been on my watch list for some time. Missed it during last free preview weekend for one of the channels few months ago.

One of these days it will show up on a channel Ive got. Thor must have shrunk to play a race car driver.

The complete serie I had downloaded because I do not have Netflix, it was very good to watch, for sure the faces of that Renault guy Abiteboul was fun to watch.

And Mark Priestley was at Zandvoort:

Dont have that ability. Kept getting email from the F1 app about the free trial of F1TV. But watching on phone doesnt have much interest. Ive watched other Motorsports on phone. Works to a point. But almost always freezes up at some point

I have switched to Hesgoal for a stream. It has always a solid stream and its Dutch although I love the Sky commentators.

But a good performance of all Honda drivers. A sad decision fram Gasly not to drive a 2nd lap causing him to drop out Q2

Fell asleep 5 minutes before qualifying was to start last night. Watching replay now. Know the results but it’s good to see the cars running. I’ve only followed it loosely over off season. I know there are diehard Williams fans. That can’t imagine F1 without them. But it looks bad

Worked and watched sebring until FP3. Then fell asleep before qualy. Just finished replaying. Hoping the wing changes and race pace brings some exciting battles.
