  1. This feature has become invaluable ever since decided to remove (or hide in such a manner that I cannot find it) the “convert to local time” option.

    Glad to see the race starts at 14:00 local time, that means barring a red flag I should be able to watch prior to starting a busy Sunday schedule.

    1. @adrianmorse it is still available on the main page. Just scroll down to the calendar and click on ‘your time’ (the Rolex watch also changes) or choose ‘convert to your local time’ link near the session times at the same place. The times will change to your locale.

      1. @evered7, ah yes, thank you. I did look for it earlier, but I did not scroll down on the main page to the calendar. I did find some other articles on with the times, but there no local-time conversion was present.

      2. @evered7 Cheers! I was in the same boat as @adrianmorse

    Does anybody know which Portuguese TV channel shows the race and whether it is free to view?


    1. It’s Sport TV, and, unfortunately, it is not free. @thebladerunner

        Thanks @toiago

        I am staying near the Spanish border on Sunday. From memory the F1 is shown for free on a Spanish channel. Can anybody confirm?

          @thebladerunner – ‘Antena 3’
          They also stream live content via their Atres website.
          But probably you have (to pretend) to be in Spain.

            Brilliant, many thanks.

          2. @coldfly
            Does Antena 3 have lots of ad breaks? I’m on holiday on Lanzarote at the moment, and it seems Antena 3 HD is one option. [RAI may be another one but not sure it works here and whether the Chinese race will be shown.] [RTL does not seem to work for some reason despite being on the hotel TV list. Signal too weak.] There are also a few sports bars here showing live Premier league, which I guess must be on Sky Sports. So they might show F1 as well, but I am not sure they open that early.

            I might be able to supplement with BBC Radio 5 Live Audio using an internet stream (hoping for a decent data rate on the very variable hotel wifi). Has anybody done that before, combining a foreign language TV feed with internet streamed Radio 5 Live?

            I watched the Indian GP on Antena 3 whilst in Lanzarote in 2013. It does have loads of ad breaks! Even worse, either side of the ad break the do the ‘Sponsored by Shell’ bit that lasts almost as long as the ads themselves!

          4. Mike Dee
            For the races not shown live on BBC sometimes I combine German RTL with Radio 5 Live commentary streamed from the BBC. There is no longer any F1 FTA in Belgium. The RTL/BBC option works ok but the 5 Live commentary tends to be 25-30 seconds behind RTL. I get over this sync issue by using the pause function on my PVR to get the pictures and commentary in sync. Don’t know if you’ll have that option.

          What’s the thing with Lanzarote for F1Fanatics? @mike-dee, @thebladerunner Not bad, but I can give you a long list of places (islands and mainland) which would be a better place to visit ;)

          I do not find the ad breaks of Antena 3 any worse than what I see in other countries (mostly the crap in Australia). And the best part is that they keep the race on on one side of the screen and put the ad on the other.
          Even better, if you follow the race via Atres (their online version) there are no ad breaks at all; just no commentators during ad times!! The replays have ads, but they pause the race (very acceptable).

          Enjoy your stay and the race.

            The Canaries, Mainland, Balaerics… All good! ;)

          2. Thanks, @coldfly @thebladerunner @braisim

            I guess I’ll have to live with the delay of the commentary of Radio 5 Live, I don’t think I have the possibility to record on the TV, but I’ll check again. I doubt that the Wifi here will be quick enough for a TV stream, will be tough for the radio already!

            There is still F1 live on Belgian (Walloon) FTA TV (usually RTBF 2), I always watch it when the race is not on BBC. Commentary is not great but at least I can understand it, but I don’t speak Spanish at all, so would like the BBC commentary.

            Lanzarote is quite nice, but I actually prefer Tenerife. Other places in Spain are still a bit cold for Easter holidays.

    2. Only Sport TV has the rights to transmit in Portugal.
      Should be on SportTV 5 channel
      No free options available, unless you have the German RTL in your TV service provider.
      Um abraço
