Well - the live stream was a nice touch - was only running 5 seconds or so behind the TV feed. :D

However - it was broadcast in 16:9 so ideally you need Media Player Classic to open the asx file so you can asdjust it to 16:9 instead of the 4:3 it wants to show it in.

Minor issue though.



Anyway - nice that Sheikh Maktoum did the For the pride of your nations bit...

Also - how nice is that trophy. Gold and Silver things wrapping round with a glass globe on top. That beats the Australian F1 trophy.

And the start of the Sprint race is underway...

France up into 2nd past New Zealand

Brazil in the lead.

Netherlands has spun possibly - looks like hes stuck. Few bits of wreckage around - Actually - accident.


After lap 1.

Looks like South Africa may have been involved with the Netherlands


France are currently fastest - 1:17.399 on lap 1


Netherlands was smacked up the bum by South Africa. Which sounds painfull.

Not running that closely at the moment. I was expecting the cars to be closer. However - they may not be fighting to much as the feature race is yet to come and they don't want to rsk it.

Portugal is right up behind Pakistan - very close.

You can tell the difference between the top drivers and the lower drivers - 3 seconds a lap...

Brazil go fastest on lap 5 - 1:17.255

France go fastest again - 1:17.141 - lap 7

Still reasonably stationary on lap 10. Brazil seem to be comfortable in the lead.

Portugal having a good wiggle through Paddock Hill Bend - nicely held though.

Good old Opera - reloading the live timing page every 5 seconds. :D

South Afrrica are still running.

Aaaah...Live Timing has stopped...gone blank.

Time for some guesswork. :D

Oooh...and it's back.

Pakistan and Portugal are still fighting for 7th place.

Switzerland and Ireland are fighting for 9th.

Japan and Malaysia for 12th

Brazil is slowly pulling out a lead - up to 2.3 on lap 13.

Lap 16 - 2 Laps to go...

Not much happening - ones mentioned above are still close. Thats the problem with Brands Hatch - nowhere really to overtake.

Final Lap...

Brazil are going to take the flag win at the first A1GP race...

Well Done Brazil and Nelson Piquet Jr..

Lovely drive - not a single wheel wrong.

OK, bit of a dilemma here - do I stick with the A1GP feature or jump between that and the Goodwood Revival?

I see the remote getting some work.

Or - have a HTPC with 2 tuners. ;) :p

Or - Watch Goodwood and stream A1GP...
