I'd rather not. I've tried to watch the races put in place of the actual races and I found them really boring. It's not the same.

Re: Max Verstappen signs new Red Bull contract to 2023

With Max being locked into Red Bull for a few more years, Charles at Ferrari and I presume Mercedes will keep Lewis to at least 2021 and maybe 2/3 there is the chance that one of those 3 have made the right choice.

Re: Now TV coverage in UK for 2020

I think the one saving grace of NowTV is that you're able to have it on 5 devices so I rarely missed a session the last two seasons as I could have the Friday practice sessions on my iPad whilst it was on my desk at work.

Re: Now TV coverage in UK for 2020

The trick with Now TV is to go through their online cancellation after one month. It will automatically offer you 3 months for £60 (£20 per month). Very familiar with the cancellation dance! I often get the movies and entertainment for a fraction of the cost. Hoping to have proper sky for the new s...
