The things I've heard so far about the red button during the race sound good - access to live stats and some extra feeds I believe.

ITV did a good job in the end and the BBC have a lot to live up to. If it wasn't for adverts it would have been hard to say I was happy for BBC to take it.

I'm just glad Martin Brundle was kept on. I would rather have suffered adverts than lose Martin Brundle as a commentator.

James Allen did a good job in the later seasons - once he stopped trying to fill Muzza's boots (which was painfully embarassing at times) and just started to be himself - I thought he got a bit too much stick.

Yeah - I'd much rather have him driving a car, but his commentary is strong and getting better with time. I've found there to be a marked difference between his and Brundle's technical insights (although that's par for the course, given Davidson's experience of developing contemporary cars)...with a bit more practice behind the mic he'll mature quite nicely I think

Oh, I envy you guys. I am assuming the online feeds of practice, and such, are only going to be available to UK residents?

Still, the good news is I'll be getting the BBC feed on TSN (well, I am assuming it is going to be the BBC). Alas, I feel rather certain they will be sticking ads in regardless, . The good thing is the radio and websites are available as ever (even if the feeds are resitricted, which they presumably are).

It really is rather fitting the BBC taking the coverage back coincides with the big changes in the sport itself.

As a licence fee payer I couldn't possibly condone it, but rumour has it that if you find a UK proxy server you might be able to see the BBC feeds

Ah, indeed. I forgot about proxies, for some reason.

On that account, is the BBC showing the races online? If so, that deals with the adverts problem.

I imagine it'll be the 'preview' show they've been showing all week (before the classic GP stuff), sadly.

Satorian has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Under which URL would I find the practice live stream?

I might set up a second TV beside the one I'll be watching the race on, probably for keeping on the stats screen. Just a pity the official timing screens won't be on the red button, that would be ideal.

Shouldn't the live coverage be starting now? We're getting the 94 season finale again.

Thoughts after first practice - great commentary team in the Radio 5 Live crew. If the main TV commentators are as good as their radio counterparts, we're in for a treat this season. If not, I'll be watching the telly on mute with 5 Live on in the background As far as the TV feed is concerned (or in this case, the red button feed) we were given more car-to-pit radio footage as promised. There seemed to be more on-board shots too - Massa, for instance, had one camera on the nose and one behind his left shoulder.

A big thumbs-up from me so far.

I'm struggling to find the BBC video stream of P2. Where is it?

OK. Scratch the above. I have found it. Now it is just a matter of getting it running. I keep getting a message telling me a script in the video is casuing Adobe Flash Player to run slowly, and this may cause probelms and what not. Like computer becoming unresponsive. It seems whether I say continue with the script or not, it still pops up the same message box in a few seconds time with the same message.

It means I am just stuck on the revolving dot circle loading image thing, rather than it making the final step to showing the video.

So, nearly there. Nearly but not quite. Anyone got any thoughts on resolving this issue?
