    I've been looking around for a good way to watch F1 online and I finally found something that looks promising.
    YouTube TV. It's brand new and only available in 5 areas (including LA and SF).
    First month is free, 35/month after. unlimited DVR storage plus live TV of a lot of channels including NBCSN
    you need a chromecast or computer or a few other options to watch on a TV. Get a free chromecast with your first paid month subscription.
    Watch anywhere in the USA but you have to login in your local region every so often
    share with 6 other people but only 3 can stream at the same time. everyone gets their own account and DVR
    lots of sports content and local channels
    tv.youtube.com
    could be good for watching at the track if someone has the data to spare or available internet connection.

    Have you checked out Reddit? Always has acestreams for free in HD, usually a few shady SD streams too.

    I like to wake up Sunday morning and watch on my schedule with coffee and breakfast or even Monday if I'm out of town.
    DVR type of service is a must for me and I don't want to deal with some kind of home brewed PC solution. I don't enjoy watching a spanish broadcast stream at 3 in the morning either.

    almost "only 2 correct on McLaren pick". I felt really good about Alonso this time around only for him to have a mechanical issue while in 9th.

    This might be the closest they get all year to scoring a point unless it rains again.

    On another forum people voluntarily agreed to add "who should've stayed with Merc power" every time McLaren has been mentioned. So your post will look like this n the proper format:

    That's not a bad idea. Might have a bonus point if you get all teammate war wrong. Probably add another pair of teammate.

    isn't that a bit too difficult to guess ? also what is a "retirement" ? is it failure to start ? what happens when 2 cars crashes each other at T1 ? there is gonna be something I didn't think of that came up. then Grant will whine....

    [/QUOTE]or 2nd place team by total points?[/QUOTE]
    isn't that always Ferrari ? if everyone has the same pick, then it doesn't work.

    YouTube TV is first on our list when the TV "cord" gets cut. Turns out we're still stuck with DirecTv for the next few months anyway, hopefully more options will be available by the time we're able to switch.

    I love this idea!
    It is the first driver that started the race to stop racing, aka: the driver listed in last place in the results. There is no consistency in this and should be really fun to watch. If the driver you pick does not start the race for whatever reason, you don't get any points. You only get points if you have chosen the last place driver.

    Speaking of whining, anyone else thought that the VER radio calls towards the end were pathetic?

    Yes! Seemed out of character. I supposed the car in front was impacting his aero, but Max was not anywhere near close enough to pass him, so I don't know what Max expected him to do. It's not like there was any blocking.

    He got all super whiny while not being to catch a back marker, meanwhile his team mate drives lap after lap right on his gearbox, chewing through his tires and never said a word.
    He's very good, no doubt, but color me unimpressed about the whining.. Get on with the program, kid.
