Hahahah gently caress Buemi that was an awesome battle, he should be proud to have put on that good of a show in the final lap. His pissy reaction totally ruins that.

Also hello racing goons. This is the first racing series I've ever paid attention to. It's fun!

edit: look how good this poo poo is:

Buemi even argued with the wrong amlin andretti driver for a bit. Frijns was super confused.

And now Buemi gets DQ'd for having an underweight car. He's going to be extra salty tomorrow.

Does that sort of stuff happen a lot? He was DQ'd in germany for having under pressured tires too, right?

I think the explanation is that his second car was underweight because that was the car he crashed during practice. They didn't have time after rebuilding the car to weigh the car.

Pretty big news, Renault out, Nissan in as part of a motorsport partnership between the 2 according to Motorsport. Will likely end up being for the 2018/19 season with e.dams staying on as the actual owner of the spot. The article says Buemi will probably stay on despite driving for Toyota in WEC but I heavily doubt that.

If the posts on the FE subreddit are any indication, there won't be any more non-geoblocked VLC streams this year.

At least there is now a legit way to watch the races live in and a Eurosport Player subscription isn't massively expensive, I guess.

Yeah slightly obnoxious but at least Fox Sports airs the races live in the US on one of their channels. Currently watching quali time delayed on FS2

e: according to reddit, singapore is open on youtube, we'll see if it's open during the race.

Drive through for Bird not leaving his car in the tent (and also for nearly pasting a dude)

e2 also the new graphics are kinda crap, i'm sure they'll tweak it throughout the season. especially the position swap animations during the pit stops

Channel 5 seem to have improved their coverage, they actually have Vernon Kay at the track now and it's not just 2 people in a cupboard. Still extremely rear end that they're not showing the race live though.

He does pronounce Dario's surname "Frankitty" though.

Yeah I watched the race on my TV and while the TV is HD I watch TV through the regular antenna because lol spending an HDMI port on a TV box. The stack was super hard to read and I completely gave up trying any time numbers were on screen. Fun race though, I hope Mortara can keep doing cool stuff through the whole season and doesn't just completely fade after one race.

Also, Bird has a 10-place grid penalty tomorrow for nearly killing a man in the pits.

The Danish Eurosport commentator randomly interjects with “and now I have to provide a summary for the replay”, proceeds to sum up some of what’s going on, and invariably gets distracted. He also missed every single fan boost announcement, except for the one by Abt. I can’t tell if he’s incompetent or overworked.

Lotterer DQ'd first race, binned it on the last corner in the second. Not exactly a great debut.

The Finnish one keeps talking about stuff we can clearly see onscreen, and still gets at least half of it wrong.

Apparently, "the FIA security stickers on the inverters and motors did not correspond with those declared on one of his car's technical passport." As a result, Abt has been disqualified, handing the victory to Rosenqvist.

The security stickers would basically be the things to identify the internals to ensure they haven't been changed from what the team say is in the car if I understand right. So he wasn't running with the motors the team said he had which is either the team being caught cheating or someone hosed up and declared the wrong equipment.
