Those McLaren pitstops are unbelievable. Very unlike McLaren. It wouldn't surprise me if most of those mechanics in the video had never performance a live pit stop before. I've be flabberghasted if this crew did the pitstops at Melbourne ;)

I've just had an email from NowTV for what looks like a 9 month pass for the F1 channel for £150. I haven't decided if I'll take it up. It's less than half price but I also have to consider that due to my job I can't watch all the races live anyway.

That's getting the stage where it's almost palatable, but the last time I used the Now TV app for Windows you couldn't change the screen it was shown on, so I couldn't stick on the TV. No idea what the app on the TV is like either, and I'm not willing to subscribe to test it.

If F1 was in better shape I'd consider it more, but I'm finding it really difficult to get enthused about it at the moment. I used to be giddy at this stage of the year, but I'm not even mildly excited for Melbourne yet.

I use NowTv via my apple devices and it airplays well enough. There's a slight delay of a minute or so in the coverage so takes some fiddling to synchronize it with the live timing.

I'll be surprised if Grosjean keeps the Haas seat next year. With the exception of Austria, he's been abysmal this year, seemingly running into anything that's moving and a lot of things that aren't. He's always been mistake-prone but this has been a new level of fail. Magnussen must surely be Haas's ideal choice going forward.

On the subject of TV, I have Sky F1 through Virgin Media on my flatscreen TV, which makes a great home cinema in the living room of my flat.
I know other deals are cheaper, but I find it more practical to watch TV the old-school way than to try streaming the live feed through my devices etc. I've done it in the past - most often watching the live Sky stream on my laptop - but I've found that both the airplay itself and the WiFi signal are too prone to glitches to show whole races reliably.
