    I'm struggling to navigate this right now, will you also be able to watch races after they occur or is this just for live streaming? If so, I'm going to sign up immediately...

    The beginning of the video in the link mentions being able to catch up on demand, so excited.

    Also if their archival footage is anything like the quality shown here, my mind is gonna be blown.

    ^That's one of my recent favorite F1 videos. Such a great story and Jacques tells it well.

    Hamilton on mediums a half second clear of second fastest time on mega softs today. Yikes.

    More proof that this season, tire choice is going to be a roulette game of "match the tire to the track" rather than a simple linear algorithm of softer = faster, harder = slower.

    I only saw the times and was about to get excited about a McClaren 'only' 0.5 down, but had a nagging feeling there was devil in the details. Those are the details.


    pretty excited about the pay-to-watch option.

    We all knew Mercedes was going to be strong, however I don't think we can put too much weight on the testing times at this point.

    I'm not really concerned.

    2018 Pre Season Testing

    Danny Ric sets new outright lap record at Circuit de Catalunya in testing, 1:18.047. Over a second faster than last years pole. Stitch together fastest sectors and mid 1:17s are expected.

    Halos are still ugly.


    Edit:
    Never mind, Vettel goes 1:17.182 the day after Ric.

    Maybe it wasn't Honda's fault all along.
