    ONE is showing both the race and qualifying live!
    10PM Saturday and Sunday night.

    Here’s hoping Webber can do it and that we can whup the All Blacks to make it a perfect weekend.

    1. A Webber win would do nicely :)

  3. Qualifying and race will be broadcasted live by Dutch broadcasting company RTL7.
    Sa 22 aug. 13.55-15.10 RTL GP: Formule 1 – Europe – Qualifying
    Su 23 aug. 12.45-13.55 RTL GP: Formule 1 – Europa – Preshow
    Su 23 aug. 13.55-15.45 RTL GP: Formule 1 – Europa – Race
    Su 23 aug. 15.45-16.00 RTL GP: Formule 1 – Europa – Review
    Times are local (CEST).

    However commentary is in Dutch and there will be commercial breaks. In most parts of the Netherlands we can receive BBC via cable, so I prefer BBC myself.

    1. You’ve been a great help.

    2. Thanks for that Soenarko!

        When I was younger I always wanted McDonalds would jump on board during the F1 season and sell a Gerhard Berger.

      Yeah I once went there and quali was live had a 30minute build up then switched to ITV coverage now they should be switching to BBC coverage i believe.

  6. @al. No problem. Enjoy your stay in The Netherlands. And a nice European Grand Prix of course!

  7. On the F1 European Grand Prix 2009 for the BBC Grand Prix and the intro to the Red Button for the European Grand Prix they have a song as the intro which is just a guitar (electric guitar). Anyone have any idea what song that is? It is driving me mad!
