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.


Quote:
Last week, FIA president Max Mosley spoke out about the future of F1 on the internet, and admitted that it is a neglected area of the sport. He said the ideal would be to have all the timing screens available online, with archives, plus everything that is available to the teams. He included multi-camera angles, with choices of in the garage, the motorhomes, and everywhere around the paddock. Nothing intrusive, of course, but anywhere public within a Formula 1 weekend could be available on the web.

Now, Bernie Ecclestone has jumped to his own defence saying that the onus is not on him to provide internet broadcasts. As the rights holder to Formula 1 and all it's footage, you would think otherwise, but Bernie says the contracts he holds are very specific.

Bernie says that all the countries have different contracts, and each individual one restricts what FOM (his company) can do with the content. This does make some sense, as ITV would not have wanted to invest in simulcasting the sessions, if they were going to be available on the official F1 site as well. However, it is Bernie that negotiates the deals, and he could surely do something about this. Stipulate that there has to be some kind of internet activity, or else FOM will do it for them.

It seems as though, for what is supposedly the most advanced technological sport of it's age, Formula 1 is lacking severely in it's IT department. NASCAR fans get a lot more from their coverage. However, as the different broadcasters around the world begin to catch on, things may be about to change.

Whew! Or more aptly, strewth! They spent some money on that one. Helicopter, rights-restricted music, car shots. Love the production value. And the self-deflating humor.

I must say, I don't like over-long opens. I prefer to get right to the action. One benefit of DVRing the F1 coverage is that I can skip through the opens, intros and general jabber and get straight to car going in circles.

Hmmm.

The smaller slash/vent opening wasn't there for Oz, was it? Cooling? Or more coanda?

I think it is an access slot that was covered up before... I'll have to dig through some of the other shots.

Now that you mention it, I do remember some sort of cover there.

My good buddy Bob Varsha is doing the honors for Malaysia! In a reverse of the Speed situation, Diffey's called away (to do IndyCar this weekend) and Varsha pinch hits. It does my heart good to see he's still involved.
