Well, a tv subscription is definitely worth it to me over some shoddy livestream, but that's just me.

I just watched the race online. I'm not paying extra to watch F1 -.- has always been free, now I need to pay for digital TV which I don't need + subscription for a sport channel with football and all of that while all I want is to watch F1, so it'd cost me more than 300 euros a year. For what, really? Sorry, livestream for me.


I agree on that... luckily in germany everything is on free tv still practice 1 & 2 on Sport 1 (even tho that channel is to 90% filled with porn its free at least) and the rest at RTL .... if they change that and only Sky will keep F1 then I dunno what I should do...

Watched the first practice sessions on Sport1. Nothing spectacular yet, it was only Ronald van Dam who is calm and relaxed, which I prefer as a commentator. Think we''ll see dual commentary for qualifying and race then.


Id rather kill myself than to ever listen to Ronald van Dam again.
He comments like its a knitting contest.

Maybe subscription video feed, and listen to stream commentary meanwhile. Probably out of sync though.

Well, if I end up not keeping Sport1, I'll be watching the RTL Germany on tv (for free!) and either put up with the German, or use an English radio feed for audio. Of course, Sport1 or not, I'll tune into every BBC race they broadcast.

Streams are about 20 - 30 seconds out of sync with livetiming.

But I don't know, seems like there's no real reason for me to get a subscription for Sport1 then.

BBC is also 10-15 seconds off, so no harm there.

Strange, the review was on Veronica today and I saw Olav Mol present in Melbourne. Why didn't Sport1 have a proper preview before the race then? I mean, didn't they hire Olav Mol to be on location?

Well I know some people really hated Olav Mol, but he's 100x better than Ronald van Dam. Really, I miss Olav Mol already with his huge enthusiastic comments. No offence to Van Dam, but sometimes I really have the feeling that he has no idea where he is talking about. Doornbos was a valueable addition though, hopefully he'll be there much more often.

..apart from being real cheap for the first 3 months, and HD quality. They also have 3 channels (how was that btw?). Im considering it since my tv package doesnt have rtl+.

Will Moerer (VP) says Sport1 is working hard behind the scenes to find/make improvements to the show, based on the enormous amount of 'feedback' (criticism).

Sport1 hard bezig met F1-uitzendingen
Dinsdag 19 maart 2013, 18:00

De opening van het Formule 1-seizoen op Sport1 zit erop en de Grote Prijs van Maleisië komt er dit weekend al weer aan. Sport1 heeft via mail, Twitter en Facebook veel reacties, kritiek en tips ontvangen om tot een beter Formule 1-product te komen.

‘Wij van Sport1 nemen al jullie feedback uiterst serieus en zijn achter de schermen druk bezig om te zien hoe we beter kunnen aansluiten op jullie wensen. We komen hier op korte termijn concreet op terug’, reageert Will Moerer, Vice-President Film1/Sport1 op de reacties op het eerste weekend Formule 1 in Australië.

Door het grote aantal reacties zijn we er niet toe gekomen iedereen persoonlijk te beantwoorden. Wél hebben we al jullie feedback verzameld en geanalyseerd. Formule 1 is nieuw voor Sport1 en we realiseren ons dat we er nog niet zijn. We blijven er dan ook aan werken de uitzendingen waar mogelijk te verbeteren.

Probably the most criticism is about the lack of a proper preview show.

After 8 races or so, Ronald van Dam still can't tell drivers apart. For half a lap he mistakes Sutil for Di Resta. Their helmets are completely different. :rolleyes:

Massa crashed in FP2, visible on the tv broadcast, it took van Dam more than 10 seconds to see it.

I stopped watching the preview shows years ago. They hardly showed anything that I hadn't already read or seen online.
