I am in the US currently. Where can I watch the race online? I am okay to pay subscription fees.

You do get races on Speed TV. You could try firstrow1.eu which is free. Quality depends on your luck on a given day. I vaguely remember 1 day subscription on Sky UK, but don't know if it is available outside UK.

F1 cars need a horn. It will help Kimi at the start to get a move on!

What cruel luck for Nico. To run an old spec engine and to then have an engine failure.

As for Kimi, what on earth happened at the start?

He went from 2nd to last in a matter of seconds!


Lewis' radio towards the end was interesting to hear. Basically asking him to belt out fast laps without asking questions. All this when he was 22s ahead of Vettel. Toto Wolff refused to give any details after the race about what was wrong with Lewis' car until later. Speculation says they wanted him to build a 25s lead to have another emergency pit stop.

Niki Lauda acting all naive post-race. Haha.

This ought to be interesting to see.

That said, the Tifosi must be the most vibrant crowd in the F1 calendar.

EDIT: Apparently Lewis' rear tyre pressure was lower than what is allowed by the FIA. Mercedes says they did as per what Pirelli expected. Apparently other cars might have similar issues as well. Lewis was asked to speed up to get his rear tyre pressures up. The lowest rear tyre pressure recommended by Pirelli is 19.5. So anything lower than when you get the tyres onto the car will get the car penalized.

Former steward says DQ is possible if teams claim that they were beaten by a team that didn't adhere to set rules.

Looks like the race isn't over yet.

EDIT 2: LH's rear left was 0.3 points lesser than the required minimum pressure.

Here's some more clarity:

Lewis and Nico's cars were 0.3 and 1.1 points lower than the minimum required tyre pressures.

What doesn't make sense is how both Mercedes and Ferrari had the wrong rear tire pressure. It's still understandable if just Mercedes got it wrong.
True. Solid driving from the Iceman. Wonder how the race would've panned out had he got the start right.

As per the report, the Mercedes and Ferrari cars were being scrutinized. The Ferraris were both above the minimum required pressure. But both Mercedes were not.

Late reply but will help you for next races. You can watch f1 only on NBS Sports network in USA. For DISH network subscribers, it's channel 159. SPEED TV is no more official broadcaster of F1 in USA. NBCSN has an app too and you can watch the live as well as replay race there too.

Coming back the the race, what a disaster for Roseburg. The Tifosi went crazy when Nico's engine gave up.

Let's see how Hamilton story pans out.

All in all a good race though not so much for Nico with the blown engine. The last few laps were something and a bit of a scare for Lewis ! How nice to see Massa on the podium. Great driving by Vestrappen. Fantastic drive by Raikkonen in the end.

All good for Lewis, no further action.

Reasoning by FIA, yet to be published.

FIA have clarified that the tyre warming blankets had been disconnected from power source and the tyres were significantly below the maximum permitted tyre blanket temperature at the time of FIA measurement on grid.

True. I really doubt the 0.3 point shortage gave him that massive, massive 25s advantage.

Here's the piece from Formula1.com

Quote:
"In making this determination regarding the pressures, the Stewards noted that the tyre warming blankets had been disconnected from their power source, as is normal procedure, and the tyres were significantly below the maximum permitted tyre blanket temperature at the time of the FIA’s measurement on the grid, and at significantly different temperatures from other cars measured on the grid.
"Further, the Stewards are satisfied that the team followed the currently specified procedure, supervised by the Tyre Manufacturer, for the safe operation of the tyres. Therefore the Stewards decide to take no further action.
That said, WRT Kimi's disastrous start, people start moving faster once a signal turns green in India!

Sad to see Alonso struggling so much in spite of being one of the better drivers around right now.

Quote:
Insiders say that the Honda at its best is at least 100bhp down on the Mercedes - and that the hybrid element of the power-unit, which accounts for 160-180bhp of the total power of the engine, runs out of boost part-way down all but the shortest of straights.

That means the McLaren-Honda is lagging nearly 300bhp behind the Mercedes for a significant proportion of the straights on the Monza track, and is by some measure the worst engine in F1.

The race was so unremarkable that the highlight was, well, Lewis's highlights.

Mclaren. Oh Mclaren. Whither art thou?
What is wrong with this Honda association. A behemoth like Honda is getting it's engines from lada, what? One full season of Mclaren DNA, two world champions, multitude of championships, the current and future champion who cut his teeth here, and it's being treated like an extended testing session? It's becoming ultra disappointing.
For god's sake, if an alien came to a race, you'd be at a loss if asked to depict the history of the sport while pointing at the black car.
The best they could do was race each other, and even with that, one broke down? Geez!
One other thing. Does Mclaren have the most boring drivers on the grid? Other backmarkers,they're slow too, but you get an occasional slide and check, some wheelspin, dragging a bit of gravel. Nothing here!
And.... Vented!
Phew!
