Speed did the same thing for some of the races last year. Torrents are your friend. Bonus there is you can watch the Sky broadcast and skip our (Fox) crap one.

Great news!
Maldonado's future uncertain as funding to be cut

Looks like Crashanaldo's going to get his funding cut and (hopefully) his seat. Now Lotus can go find a real driver. I wonder if they could talk all the other teams into writing a partial check for a new driver using the money they'll eventually save from the cars he won't wreck?

Set your alarms early for Sunday Morning. Monaco will be epic this year. The Ferrari's seemed mighty loose on the rear end (recipe for disaster), the Red Bull's are hungry (their aggression may prove to be an additional hazard) and the two Mercedes drivers have a real rivalry going (especially after what happened in Q3 qualifying today). The tail end of the pack will be *much* slower, which will create a massive challenge for the faster cars on the twisty/winding streets of Monaco. Miss it, and you will miss out.

Unfortunately Lotus may not be able to afford another driver other than from their test driver stable and without the sponsor funding may be out.

WOW!! NBC bites hard. They jump into the middle of P2 qualifications to show freaking hockey commentary and recap. The channel guide clearly shows it is formula 1 racing. There are 6 other channels showing hockey, keep the "Pucking" crap on one of those channels, leave the one scheduled for formula one, showing formula one. The last network who had the formula 1 contract did a much much better job. I sure hope they don't do this crap during the actual race. The hockey rec(r)ap has been going on for 20 minutes already. Get back to racing.

I will have to catch it in 3 hours, I didn't realize it was coming on earlier. For the given outcome (I caught the awards ceremony), it must have been one heck of a race. I don't want to give spoilers for those who have not seen it yet.

I do miss Speed Channel, but NBC is doing a fair job; especially when compared to when ABC Wide World of Sports covered the Monaco GP - what a joke, you would miss parts of the race when they would cut to commercials or babes in bikinis.

Awesome race, how can people find F1 boring?!

Tough call by the stewards regarding the PER and MAS accident. VET is getting outraced consistently, he may have four championships but not the racing skills of someone like ALO to get the best out of a subpar car.
