    With practice starting tonight, I can't wait. Don't usually watch practice but with it being the first of the season, it'll be interesting to see what happens with sides like Toro Rosso doing so well, and McLaren looking suspect.

    Anyone else going to be up watching it? Will post a stream if/when I find one.

    Just found out it's also being shown through BBC's red button service, so i'm sure there will be a stream online for those at the computer/abroad.

    International stream through BBC? So the tax payers money will allow someone from *insert disliked country here* to watch the racing for free? Don't let The Sun find out!

    What's the page to watch on the BBC website? I'm either dumb or tired, 'cause I can't seem to find any sort of streaming or some sort of placeholder page.

    The Mclaren was looking after its tires better than the Redbull over the same 7 lap stints.

    well, there are what can be descibed as chunks/holes in the tires after 6-7 laps, at this rate, look for 10 stops per car! :D

    Give it up already.

    Anyhow, I have to channels to watch F1 from, one is a commercial Channel and one isn't. :)
    Fingers crossed for all last years slow teams and for the teams that struggled during the testing season.
