  1. formula 2 cant get used to that name

  2. Finally not an early start for me in the UK!

    1. @aidanedgar I don’t mind waking up early for this purpose, although I don’t have to do that much since only four races start in the morning in my time zone (Australia, China, Malaysia, and Japan the same four as in the UK time zone), and to some extent I like that more than the usual afternoon slot or the evening slots of the races in the American continents since there’s less time left before the race, so less wait, but yeah, all the slots have their pros and cons compared to each other.

      1. Yeah I understand where you are coming from but to be honest I am just not a good morning person! (and I only have myself to blame!) honestly I would personally prefer races the I would have to stay up for (e.g. lights out at 12:00am) however I realise I’m in the minority and again it really isn’t that much of a big deal, it’s just my own personal bad sleep patterns

      2. I much prefer the early start because I’ve got a heap of kids. If the F1 is done by 10 then I’ve still got the whole day to spend frolicking about!

      Times for Ch4 Live race coverage are incorrect – thought it looked a bit weird 70 minutes?! Start is 14:50 but finish (including post-race discussion) is 18:45.

      1. The table is saying C4 starts at 14:50 and the race starts at 16:00 – not that the coverage ends then

  3. Damn annoying. The race start is the same time as Manchester United vs Chelsea (4pm).

    I find it easier watching F1 on record, than football. Footy needs to be live so I don’t get spoilers from friends.

    1. @sato113 I have the same problem too lol as you can guess from my username. Although in my case, I can watch f1 live on TV while I only stream football so my priority is F1 for this Sunday.
