Watching on Motors TV UK. Feed is so low quality SD, they really need an HD feed. It feels much worse quality than any other SD channel, so fuzzy.

Just saw Priaulx's crash, I think he thought he was on the outside lane which was a faster entry, big brainfade. Lucky Christensen wasn't alongside could have been a bad accident.

I see Medion is still Sutil sponsor. He is commentating the ROC on Sat1.


And he said he's in FI talks but can't say anything definitive before contracts are signed, obviously.

Else I find the ROC pretty mediocre in terms of presentation. The stands are more than half empty, to compensate they show faked enthusiasm by grid girls frequently, which is too obvious and uncanny, and the races kind of disappear between all the other stuff Sat 1 is broadcasting around them.

Edit: Prioulx: throttle stuck open

Try watching a non HD NTSC live feed from the USA on MotorsTV

Contract conflicts are a huge shame in a race meet like this, but by chance then, car(d)s have fallen Schu and Vettel's way, as they love the X-bow and the buggy.

....but why can't Vettel atleast, drive all cars?

The X-Bow is Audi powered...

I haven't seen Vettel in anything other than the ROC buggy, aside from the X-bow...

I think MSC has always had that kind of restrictions when he's been under contract with Ferrari, and Merc. He can't drive "manufacturer cars", whatever that means. So I think the KTM car is fine because it's not named Audi X-Bow?

EDIT: So he can drive at least the buggy, X-Bow, and the stock car.

Really? Ok, was it for an 'important' race then, or was it once they'd already wrapped the group up?

Cool. You have to admit though that he does sit in the ROC buggy more than any other driver, so it's no surprise that he is so au fait with it.

If Spanish TV is right, the race Vettel vs Lorenzo should have been in the Lamborghinis, but since one is damaged...

Schu has actually driven the stock car a couple of times, and he's good in it too.

Well, you quoted me when I was talking about Schumacher. Not me not keeping up there, really :up:

Btw, considering Schumacher has consistently maintained he is not comfortable driving tin tops, his performances are quite impressive.

I thought Doohan and Lorenzo would be much quicker though, especially the former, he got himself those buggies a while back to practice. I think father time has well and truly caught up.

Are we sure Vettel isn't under similar conditions with Infiniti as Schumacher is? After all there's a car called '** Vettel'?

Back on topic, the four finalists in Nations Cup also in the quaterfinals today.

Vettel's driven a VW-owned Lambo already, and as Red Bull have a relationship with VW, I'd imagine that any RBR-specific deals can be overridden by the parent company.
