Had hoped that with the Owners of Virginmedia controlling things, we might have got coverage without needing Sky Sports.

Doesn't look like there's even highlights or replay on BBC, other than on 5 Live (yeah, about as good as live snooker on the radio)

The free F1 coverage is now on Channel 4. They showed highlight of the Australian GP. Not sure if they are showing any live broadcasts this season but they did last season.

I heard live darts on the radio once, both dull and odd in equal measure

Jenson Button to replace Fernando Alonso at the Monaco Grand Prix when Alonso will go and race in the Indianapolis 500.

Re: 2017 Formula 1 Season Thread

Looks like we are going to see a real battle between Ferrari and Mercedes this season.

As for McLaren, and the 3rd year of the Honda engine, well Alonso said it "never had less power".
The first season, teething troubles were to be expected, but it's getting beyond a joke when it has neither power nor reliability.

The Honda engine is in one team only, with no works team.
Mercedes are the best team running Mercedes engines
Ferrari are the best team running Ferrari
Red Bull (under the re-brand as Tag Heur) are the best team with Renault (the Renault team being last other than the 0 pointers)

I agree, it looks like Honda will be supplying Sauber in future too though so that must have got Sauber a good deal.

Not strictly F1 but news not so long ago that the F4 driver that had a horrific crash at the weekend has sadly been left with life changing injuries.

Rotten from McLaren, absolutely dire. Hamilton's car is failing, Daniel Ricciardo out, gets worse to watch every week.

Seriously wondering if Alonso will be at McLaren by end of the season. He's not happy with the car, as he shouldn't be. At a minimum, McLaren must be getting points each race. They are diabolical. It's almost as if they have no desire any more.

I can't see him sticking out this season let alone signing for 2018, it isn't really McLarens fault as they're in contract with Honda for engine supply, however i expect them to have a different supplier for next season unless things drastically improve although they would need to find a away out of this Honda contract which runs until 2024.
