Yes,they show the practice and Qualifying also...a choice of about three or four lingo's, including English. Another one that I use on occasions is "EverywhereTV". Since the BBC lost some of the races because of the "SkyTV" takeover, I have used these...there is no way Rupert Murdoch is having any of my money!

I agree Pete even though I could afford Sky I refuse to pay for something that one time use to be free and I never have since Sky was launched in 1992 or whenever it was.... and also we have the Internet where you can view almost any sporting event under the sun for free.. so why pay

Great thread for F1 fans looking to watch the races they can no longer watch. Lets keep it on the first page guys!

Thanks god that in Holland F1 is free. But we have commercial breaks during the race. During the breaks I switched to BBC, but that's not longer an option Well, for some of the races.

No need for us to worry here in the UK this weekend, as BBC is broadcasting the race live.
What you racing lately Bob?...I am into GPL's and for some reason never got it in the past; I should have done, as it is fantastic! If you have not tried it here is a link http://www.gpllinks.org/ that will get you through all of the updates etc. You can play it now in HD and the graphics in the updates are very acceptable, considering the game came out about 13 or 14 years ago!. It is taking me a while to get all that can be got for the game online; but well worth it. There is a massive on line following of the game...I was very surprised. I am starting to think it is the best racing game I have ever played on the PC.
Keep racing Bob.

Pete.

Hi Pete,

I'm playing Race07 the last couple of weeks. I've donwloaded some new mods and tracks and it stays an awesome game.

Grand Prix Legends, sounds awesome! I've seen a couple of gameplay clips on Youtube and it looks like the cars have very less grip. Problably awesome to drive. But the graphics look bad. And i'm kind of a graphics guy.

But maybe i will try it. Is it a free download? Or can i find everythink on the link you posted?

You have to buy the game Bob...I got it for £3+ from Amazon, all the rest that you need is free and the upgrades make the graphics not to bad. It is a very demanding game, but the physics are great, best I have come across in any racing game...you can feel what the car is doing through the wheel and do corrections accordingly. I,ve got into drifting through corners; as there is no downforce as such on the old F1 cars of the times the game is set in. I had a lot of trouble getting the wheel set up though.
Anyway, it is something for you to think about...all I can say is; that I have not played Race07 since getting GPL.
Pete.

Started following Jenson Button on Facebook, He likes to post F1 news from

http://www.autosport.com/f1/

@Pete I kind of see your point about Lewis and him being the superstar, he has 1.3 million followers on Facebook poor Jenson has only 24,000. I follow both.
