Interesting that Bernie is looking at creating a new F1 Masters series

For me Bernie, the races need to run on a Sunday morning and...

I haven't thought this out very deeply yet so don't shoot me down too hard, but I wonder about scoring based purely on penalty. So a win scores zero, second scores minus two, third scores minus 3...

Double points for last race ?
I agree with all the criticisms so far.
Maybe it's finally time to stop watching the artificial farce that F1 is becoming.

Sky have removed access to USTV Now on their NowTV/Roku box which has upset my American friend who watches the sports including F1 there. But he has Plex, so he's ok until that gets blocked too........

And we did.

NBC's in race advertising / commentary quality is a different subject - picture / stream is the main issue here.

I'm going to watch the USGP live on NBC with an American friend who has access via his NowTV box. Lots of adverts no doubt but it's an option.

Good that others have the thought too.

Bernie of course will manage to come out squeaky clean in the legal proceedings when we pursue our commission.:)

Odd idea maybe, but It's a wonder Bernie isn't developing an F1 specific Roku box (a Sky NowTV box is an example) for watching over the web. HD can be done too - much better than Sky actually deliver...

I agree. She's OK with the highlights when she can go for another take, but she's terrible live. I've finally realised why I'm hot and cold on her performance - and that's the reason.
