Looks inspired by the RoboRace concept car. Very cool!

New date for 6H Nurburgring conflicts with Montreal double header. Ball is in Agag's court now.

I disagree, it's the FIA WEC the one that should change it.

Not just because the Formula E date was set earlier. The 6H Nürburgring is held too close to the German Grand Prix and the 24h Spa. It should be held in August, and another European race should be placed in July (Monza?)

Not sure why this 'date clash' of events on opposite sides of the Atlantic is relevant?If we go down that road we have clashes this weekend between F1/Indycar/NASCAR/24hr endurance.

You do realize Piquet, Buemi, di Grassi, Sarrazin, Senna, Conway, Heidfeld, Prost, Duval, and Bird all do double duty WEC/FE, right?

Think BT sport might be a more likely option?

It's not going to be on Channel 4 or Channel 5:
The ratings have been abysmal - as low as 70,000 for some races - so they won't be interested.

Plus, Discovery Channel is now the championship's largest shareholder. So I'd expect it to turn up on Quest (which is also owned by Discovery).

How do they calculate how many watch? No one has ever asked me what I see--had satelite TV since 1989-must be over 200 channels on EPG-think I did watch Quest once

Some people have special boxes attached to their TVs, which monitor what is being watched and by whom. These boxes feed back results on a daily basis to create what are known as "overnight ratings". They give minute by minute numbers, as well as programme averages, five minute averages and fifteen minute averages. They have a margin of error of around 2%.

In addition, there's a much larger group who keep diaries of what they watch. These are collected weekly and the data is added to the overnights to produce "consolidated ratings". Because the sample size is four times greater, these have a slightly lower margin of error, however I believe they are only accurate to five minutes, not minute by minute.

In other news, Maro Engel will race for Venturi next season alongside Sarrazin. Should be interesting...

Also, Andretti has signed Félix da Costa to partner Robin Frijns, replacing Simona del Silvestro.

I hope that she finds a decent seat.
