Racing drivers NEVER compliment other drivers...
Jp

Except their teammates, they are always really underrated.

offtopic, after last season:

 

Verstappen: If only my teammate was as slow as Bottas

For regions without a broadcast deal, the race will be available via Twitter and Facebook!

Their version of live timing is apparently 'Write something to Twitter occasionally'.

Well, naming a top 5 without times is like going to a concert with headphones on.

So no live stream on YouTube? That was one of the cool things about DTM and its support series...

Chadwick easily led the field in fp1 with a 0.35s gap to second.

That gap is unsurprising, Chadwick is far too good for this series.

I was wondering about where to watch in the USA.
Did they do a live deal or is it delayed on CBSSports channel?

So far, no news on the USA. You can most likely watch the livestream:

 

Fans in areas without broadcast deals can watch the race via Twitter and Facebook livestreams to see the action.

Full details of livestreams will be made available on W Series

Twitter and Facebook are terrible platforms for live streaming, WTCR dropped the idea after a year of unsuccessful attempts to promote the series that way...

It looks like she spun off and couldn't resume, causing a short red flag and missing the end of the session.

Italian F4 streaming is usually reliable on Facebook too. But I think they would get more viewers on Youtube.

Three talented drivers, three drivers with more than just a little link to South Africa. Ladies and gents, @TJP31, Desiré Wilson and @NaomiRacing. 1f44f.png1f1ff-1f1e6.png Recognise Desiré? She's the only woman to win a non-championship #F1 race. 1f3c6.png#WSeries

So there will be only one 33-minute race this weekend? That's disappointing.

Ted's Notebook @ W Series

 

 

Even though everything is the same, he mentioned that in order to have absolutely no advantage or perception of advantage, the cars, the engineers and the mechanics will be rotated. Hadn't heard that one!

Impressed with Jamie Chadwick's character in bringing up her enhanced single-seater experience as a primary factor in her being quickest.

Rare quality in a driver.

I have wondered from time to time why this isn't done in established junoir categories to determine the truly best driver. Then I remeber that money exists.

so what we know:

 

 

UK: Channel 4
Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland: Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT)
Netherlands: ZiggoVodafone
 
Rest of the world: currently sold through Pitch International partnership (known for WRC, FA Cup and Guinness Six Nations Rugby rights)

 

 

So in Finland the race tomorrow is on Viasat Ice Hockey HD Channel. :drunk:

 

I´d have to pay about 30 euros more per month to see this series. I'm already paying about 41 euros per month for my sport channels, so no thank you!

Live timing could appear under this link tomorrow for this series, but it's not guaranteed. Just check it out when qualifying or the race starts tomorrow.

In Poland Eleven Sports will be broadcasting, starting from qualifying tomorrow. It is a pay channel, the same that transmits F1.

Also it is rumoured that Polish National Television (TVP) got rights for FTA broadcasting, no details available yet. (fellow Poles please refrain from political comments).

Looking forward to this! As I work as a producer for a broadcasting station, I will be watching this series as a motorsports fan and a professional. Really want to do my best to present this as well as possible from the beginning. In my country at least, female sport performances are getting more and more attention and I'm personally very excited by this!

If you are living in Denmark, TV3 Sport will be airing qualifying live, and the race will be shown delayed in the evening, or if you are subscribed to our streaming service, you can watch both sessions live!

This series is already more exciting than Formula E, IMO. Proper race cars, proper circuits, young drivers, and a super-professional production and media outfit. Everything I’ve seen so far has been really good. I will be looking out for Chadwick and Visser!

Well I think they're equally exciting   ;)

 

Completely different series, completely different mission, completely different approaches. Doesn't warrant any comparison whatsoever.
