    It looks like the 2010 Canada GP is the last 1-2 MCL finish prior to this. That's a long time.

    Good for NOR respecting team orders. His time will come I'm sure :)

    IMHO, one of the real winners today is the halo.

    Also, I’m super excited to hear from all the internet stewards RE: Lewis-Max crash. Not.

    Personally, I found it a bit hypocritical of Max to not check on Lewis after the shunt. Remember Max was complaining that Lewis celebrated the British GP while he was in the hospital. Max just walked past Lewis even after seeing his car was literally on top of the Merc.

    Was waiting for the race last night at 9PM on Fox Sports kaso wala na pala. Ironic that they showed qualifying on Sat, then no more race coverage on Sunday.
    So how do we watch F1 now race fans??

    I didn't notice (what channel we were watching) but I think, instead of Channel 253 (SkyCable) they showed it on the other Fox Sports Channel, Channel 254. But I still don't know where I can watch come October.

    Dang!!! I didn't know it was on another Fox Sports channel. I was on ch.253 the whole time where Moto GP was the program. Had to resort to illegal streams to watch the race - which gets cut off every 5 mins. :(

    Also with the same problem here. My friends watching F1 on their Android boxes say that their SkySports F1 channel keeps cutting out. So I'm now 50-50 with that route.

    I was using a Twitch stream to watch the past 3 races. The portability to watch anywhere was really great!

    However yesterday while in lap 18, the stream was abruptly cut-off. It turns out the account was terminated lol. I'm back at sp**ts**ge.net.

    Seriously, F1 TV needs to be more aggressive in other regions. Lots of users willing to pay for their service.

    I am a cheap bas***d so I watch I live sports on Livesports24 dot net. It does not get cut off every 5 minutes but a lot of pop-ups.

    Any thoughts on subscribing to F1Tv via the app? The US version of the app allows live streaming and full coverage on the app, not just timing, etc.

    I figured since I use a VPN for Disney+, Paramount+ and HBO Max anyway, might just subscibe to the F1Tv subscription for $79.99/ year (not prorated even if there are just 8 races to go, sadly).

    Thinking of going this way, considering Fox Sports is being pulled out of Cignal.

    Watched it last night. It showed the human side of Schumy:

    SCHUMACHER: 8 of the biggest revelations from Netflix’s new documentary on the seven-time F1 champion
    https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/...documentary-on-the.JrqwQM1VMaNcaxSb2YYMG.html


    I was also struck by how he partied, and even sang karaoke, with "the enemy" David Coulthard, and how he and Hakkinen had a healthy professional respect for each other--they even compared notes and spoke with each other almost as if they were friends (but as Mika clarifies, they could not really be actual friends because of the rivalry).

    Can't imagine the same with Lewis and his rivals, be it Nico or Max or whoever.

    I got watch the film last night as well. Equally as surprised as you with his partying with Coulthard. I was half expecting Corinna to tell us how exactly he's doing but maybe better off keeping that private.

    TBH I was never a Schumi fan. Haha I actually hated him. I hated how he beat McLaren during his 5-year dominance. I hated how easy he made it look to win. I even hated his stupid jump on the top step of the podium. Hahaha.

    But I do appreciate and respect him for his contribution to motorsport. Truly one of the greats.

    Hehe, of course, I cheered and celebrated during his dominant years, but to me his star shined brightest in the 90s when he was also the most motivated (and the documentary implicitly agrees as it glossed over his 5-year dominance.)

    Another key moment for me was Ayrton seeking out and scolding the young upstart very early on; it looked to me like a father scolding his teenaged son and putting him in his place. Looked like the scolding had the opposite effect and only spurred Schumy to strive harder.

    I actually felt sad at the end of the documentary, and I could sense the pain whenever Corinna, Mick, and Gina talked. Couldn't help but feel they agreed to the documentary if only to help with Michael's medical bills.
