I get RTL Austria/Germany/Switzerland SD which is free to air with adverts; these can be long and annoying. 5 Live for listening but there is a delay however if you do not mind watching starting after the race has finished the audio is on IPlayer so you can sync to within a couple of seconds quite easily with a video recording. Getting it installed by a pro cost me less than a year of Sky some years ago.

You don't need a Freesat tuner you need a Free to Air tuner the type Aldi, B&Q and Lidl sell as a kit for about £50 or just the tuner from Ebay from £25, there is a ready made clamp on LNB holder you just bolt to your Sky dish arm or Freesat LNB arm, don't know whether RTL HD is encrypted now but wasn't in 2015

I should have mentioned before that I also get Eurosport Germany with all the major and some minor tours and some of the one-day cycling, loads of winter sports, football matches that are somewhere in the minor leagues and motor sport including Le Mans. N-tv is odd, they cover a few FP1s and occasionally qualifying if it clashes with a more important programme on RTL.

I have a biggish dish and an Icecrypt box which I think may well be SD.

I really hope this is a brilliant race. Other half is in hospital at the moment, and has been for the last week. BUT. We get channel 4 on the TV at the hospital and it’s live on channel 4 this weekend,(I hope) so a good race would be a massive boost. I will take my iPad with me, and maybe chat on chat. Not sure just what I can do on the hospital internet connection.

As a Middle Eastern state apparently on our side, it seems very strange that they would dig their feet in quite so much. Maybe we don’t know all the facts ?

Kimi summed up the track ":censored:"

I can't remember the race being entertaining and enjoyable to watch even the race in 2012 where Vettel probably should have finished a lap down and somehow managed to finish 3rd at the end

Sorry to hear that Titch I hope your other half is better soon.

I am hoping for a good race this weekend, not expecting one, but hoping all the same ;)

I think we’re in for the long haul. Unfortunately. What started with a fall and a broken ankle has spiralled elsewhere after a scan.
