Anarchy is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Formula 1 fans?

So are there any F1 fans here??

For me F1 is my main sport I have watched it since I was young and continue to love it and we Brits always produce good drivers

Whatever Martin Brundle is on, I think it's Sky as they mentioned some Red Button thing earlier (Red Button a relative of Jenson Button? ) ... I'm watching live in Oz right now.

I usually fall asleep before the end

You could be right - I'm watching on BBC with Jake Humphrey amongst others. Can I ask how you get to watch in Oz - Is it a subscription channel, or free?

It's on free to air, either Channel 10 or the digital-only 'One' channel.

Generally live but the commercial breaks are painful ...
