  1. Thanks
    I logged in well before the start and after about a minute the picture froze and I refreshed the page and watched a faultless picture throughout the race. The sound was a little hit and miss for a few seconds several times but no problems, I was able to watch the Sky sports live broadcast of the Bahrain F1 throughout the whole sessions and their sound quality was about the same so ?
    Great service much better than last year well done.

  2. Hi there, I’m considering purchasing the one-day VIP access for Sunday to watch the Canadian GP. One question, though: is the streaming webpage compatible with iPad/iPhone? In other words, is it flash-based or not? I need to know whether I’ll be able to play the stream on AppleTV via my tablet or phone. Thanks!

  3. Can I watch on my laptop/iPad, at home, after watching previous sessions on my desktop?
    Or will it lock me out…?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. I advise to log out properly on the first device and it should be OK. If any problems then send an email, regards
