I watched this online after Aus, but can't see to find a link to it for BBC. Anyone watching it, anyone got a link? BBC website is terrible to navigate.

I was watching on Red Button and there's no sign of it.

I think there mightn't be one.

I couldn't find it on the website last week, they didn't mention it at the end of today's show and there's nothing on my red button.

Have they given up on it? Was the first episode any good?

It's listed on their site, so I presume they cancelled it having already spent 30 minutes waffling under the red flag situation.

With the 50 minutes of chat after the race finished, I think they thought they had said everything that needed to be.

Fair enough though, they'd just be repeating themselves.

Yeah that does make sense. I was just frantically trying to find it because last week it was good.

yeah but they spent all the time after the race stopped talking about driving in the rain and whether the race would restart.

what I wanted to see was discussion about all the stuff that happened beforehand:

webber's awesomness
ferrari's exotic tyre choices
toyota's spot on tyre choices
and more.

I pressed the red button on my remote but all it did was switch off :confused:
Where did I go wrong?

It would have been worth having forum just to interview Massa and Rob Smedley about the visor request! :rotfl:

Was it him that said 'I want the white one?'
I'm surprised the PC contingency didn't make out that was a rascist comment :D

I was really disappointed that the forum wasn't shown this race - they could have at least let us all know that they were not going to be showing it, I spent a while looking for it LOL

At least they never told you it would be on.
