So I officially cut the cord to live TV this weekend... next race, I’m going to try that F1 Live app/subscription plan. $10/month... figure I’ll finish up the rest of the season. No reason to pay $50/month for DirectTV Now for live TV if everything I watch is DVR’d anyways.

 

But yes, at this point, I’m cheering for Lewis to start breaking records. Bottas and Ferrari can’t mount a challenge.

Pretty good season for sure...but I'd like it to be even more exciting than that, if anything.  The aero rules need so much work - but I don't think aero rules alone will fix things - track design also plays a big role.  Paul Ricard is one of the worse on the calendar, tied with Monaco.

F1 TV subscription seems pretty cool. Signed up this morning and used the app...

streaming seems nice and clear, and watching the onboards side by side with the feed is interesting. 

 

Would I get this if I had cable tv, probably not, but as a cord cutter paying $10/month during the season seems reasonable.

That was an emotional rollercoaster.

I've watched this at 0.25x like 50 times and I'm still amazed how much attention to detail it takes to pull this off.  Watch the green lights on the torque guns...

That was an AMAZING race!!!  Damn, if they were all that exciting no one would complain... 

 

That guy on the right front was on the ball, if the other 3 had been as fast as he was it would have been at least another tenth or 2 quicker!

Also, Netflix were in the Mercedes garage this weekend...

Excellent race, also fun because Honda with McLaren could barely get a top 10, 2 seasons with RedBull/STR and they are podium regulars and race winners...
