What a race it was brilliant and exciting Max is so exciting to watch

Interlagos has always produced a great race since it’s current version was first used in 1990. Can only imagine how the 2017 onwards cars would’ve looked/performed on the original 5 mile layout, used between 1973-1980

Still think HAM should have kept 3rd place. ALB left the door wide open, realised it and tried to make up for his mistake and close it. Turned in too late and got it wrong!

When Riccardo hit Magnussen Martin Brundle blamed Ricciardo (which was correct) But when Hamilton tried a similar move on Albon Brundle blamed him for leaving the door open 🤔

I'm in love with Max's driving style. Brilliant racer. Vettel showed why he should be kicked out from Ferrari.

Fantastic to hear the comments on Max from a UK channel, they understand and accept his dominance in this sport. If you listen closely they even make it look if there own countrymen Lewis is really no match when both drivers have an equal car. #independentskysports

Not even in the highlights Carlos is shown

Best 10-15 laps in F1 I have seen during last 20 years. Purely awesome.

One of the best races in 2019 ❤️

Would be an even better watch without David Croft shouting at everything.

Everyone noticing vettel-leclerc move, but did anyone notice leclerc-norris one at the end of first lap ? What if Norris didn't move ?

Best race of the decade! Best of Max!

Brilliant driver Max Verstappen

Honda Power ! 👊

Disaster for Ferrari...

On the coming days max is gonna be the strongest one from anyone

What is Kubica and Williams hurrying FOR??? LOL!

Leclerec vettel 😡😡

Oh Max !! We need more of you!

Kevin Nash Jordan Duller this got my heart racing!! I miss it😭😭

Yazz Street think this has to be up there with my favourite races ever 😃😃

On the day we should've been going racing at Mugello, our minds go back to his incredible moment! 🔥

One year ago, Danilo Petrucci produced THIS move on Marc Márquez and Andrea Dovizioso to secure his first #MotoGP victory! 🏆

I was fortunately there to see that historic win by petruix. I will never forget the crowd and how wild they went 😁

Two for the price of one. Cheeky, but a nice move.

I have the entire 2019 season recorded and am sitting here watching the Catalunya race as I type. Mugello was a great race, well done Danilo!!

20 year dream was supposed to be coming true right now! 😭😭😭

Is that it... And nobody else has ever passed two riders in one move. Happens early laps, mid pack, every other race.... Move on

One of the best wins ever!

Great race 👌🏁

what an exciting moment!

Bashed poor old dovi( who was being an old woman b t w) out and stuffed the maggot well and truly, if that happens in every race, by any rider(even his bro) my legs will ache from jumping up and down and my throat WIll be sore from shouting approval, and the neighbour's will think I've flipped

Do we have a date set for the first live race of 2020 yet?

..... and sacked....

“HUGE” balls !!!!

What!!! How!!! 😒

Espectacular trazado

Es todo lo que hizo en todo el mundial...

Velocidad de punta Ducati 356.7 km/h top speed Qatar Losail Austria Red Bull Ring Italia Mugello. Pero como hay irregularidad en sus pilotos, es fácilmente decir Marquez gana por moto siendo l Honda r RCV inferior 8 km/h confirmado por Gigi Dall'igna.

On this day in 2009, Valentino Rossi arrived at Mugello chasing an eighth straight home win! 🏆

Casey Stoner, however, had other ideas! 💪

I've been trying to sign up for months now, yet it refuses to accept my payment information. Says I'm missing information, but all fields are correctly filled out. I would like to watch some racing.

So, we've been home for weeks due to this covid-thing and now when we all can go back to work we get a free month? Talking about a missed opportunity...

Il be all over this when it comes to the UK, cannot wait for the sky sports dictatorship to end!!!!

How do you watch live races in the US? This was to be our first season following F1, but I guess it wasn’t meant to be! I was hoping to pay for a legitimate service instead of steaming races.

It would be great if it was easy to watch F2/F3 through your service.

I’m still waiting for that cast button, or for a app for tv ... I can’t watch racing on a phone !

How can it be a good deal if you’ll have only 2 hours of free access for out of 1400 hours it will only last for 30 days ... lol It must be a joke right? 🤣🤣🤣

I paid for 1 month last oct and they continued to bill me monthly thru the off season for 3 more months. They refuse to reply to my emails. Don't get ripped off

What are the terms and conditions? Any restrictions based on location?

Still no Apple Tv/ Android Tv apps...

So for those of us who paid the full year access membership the day before Australia was canceled, what do we get?

So people have to pay their tv companies to watch f1 (Sky, movistar etcetc) and then also pay you guy for exclusive content 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

It s shame that the app has a huge pottential, yet you cannot cast it on tv. Also pay a huge attention when buying in on your tablet, since a lot of tablets are not supported by the app 😞

I paid the annual sub for no reason

Once you get the right to broadcast live in the uk I'll sign up...

Its not clear, can you watch the live races with this or is it only previous material?

Been charging me for nothing

Will pass

Ferrari c fini 🤣🤣🤣🤣

😂😂😂😂😂 no thanks.
