    Waste of time. Once you start eliminating portions of the race it relly becomes meaningless. He eliminated the last two laps, weren't those two of Kimi's fastest?

    Yeah, I don't get it. If they want to figure out who actually won the race, then watch the actual race.

    Malaysia intrigues me. I half suspect that Vettel will get away unmolested and the Red Bull will do its run-and-hide strategy. Like Jenn, I'd love to see a different outcome.

    If the Lotus was also easy on its tires last season, how many times did it take fewer pit stops in a race?

    I can't recall them doing less pit stops... but getting old, memory going...
    I do recall seeing Big John eating people up at Montreal towards the end of the race (credited towards having plenty of tire life). But other than that????

    This may be covered someplace in the 26 pages but maybe one of you know instantly because Google can't seem to help me.

    Where can I watch 2013 F1 races and qualifying streaming online but not live? As in I'm either riding when the races are on or sleeping so I can go riding...

    Any help?

    For some reason your "issues" simply add to the level of awe I hold you in. If only I could have your problems with watching the races!!!!

    Actually, it may not be awe but rather a level of jealousy bordering upon dislike...:freaky

    Very tricky. Not sure that it can be done. You have two choices, it seems to me.

    1/ Figure out a way to record a live stream, including a way to click on a stream and make sure that it works, and find new streams if it doesn't. All without you being there. That sounds almost impossible to me.

    2/ Find a website which has links to rights-owning television stations which are running a repeat of the race.

    I can show you where to find live streams. But that's about it. Maybe there are torrents of recorded races, but that's getting into a piracy area that I avoid.

    There are ways, you just have to have the resources, sometimes social, sometimes capital, to get these races.

    Of course there's torrents. But that would be illegal....

    I'm surprised that they don't have a sub service on their website like MotoGP does.

    Maybe it's a tangle with the national television rights holders? Now I'm curious about what kind of replay rights are agreed to in the contracts.

    I agree with you, some kind on online replay would make sense. Then again, I don't think Ecclestone is too impressed by the internet's possibilities.

    Here's a very old news clipping on the issue. Sounds like each contract is its own being, and without standardization it would be difficult for F1 to host an on-demand library of F1 races.

    He's won the race 3 times, you'd think he could dispense with the map by now.

    With the 2013 season beginning, the BBC introduce new lead presenter Suzi Perry by way of a fantastic opening sequence.

    pretty cool....
