Huge crash at the Macau GP for Sophia Flörsch. She has a fractured spine but amazingly survived.

Incredible crash! Apparently contact down the straight and lost control. The car just doesn't slow or turn for the corner, but it would seem the photographers are just as hurt.

Missed this last week but Sophia was interviewed on ABC, she’s up, she’s ready to start rebuilding muscle and she intends to be back in the car for the next season in February

I noticed it was on and flicked over but it was between races so I changed back and forgot to go back.

I had this on in the background for part of yesterday and today, it was fun though I always find those but I always find those tracks hard to judge with each driver on a different section... but it's nice that it builds up into that final sprint on the straight. Some incredibly close finishes!

It appears that BT Sport have lost the Indycar rights:
https://motorsportbroadcasting.com/2...ndycar-rights/

...and that Sky may have picked them up:





Now to see what they do about adverts and commentary. I find the races too hard to follow with the US style ad breaks so hopefully Sky either continue the same approach as BT covering the ad breaks with their own commentary, or just provide their own commentary for the whole race.

YES!!!!

With luck they’ll keep the BT presenters for the adbreaks or at least the BTSports style

Bit more info here, guess we'll just have to see what happens with ad-breaks:
https://motorsportbroadcasting.com/2...orts-for-2019/

Hopefully Sky will realise they'll get a much higher audience by sticking with the coverage during the US ad breaks, at least during green flag conditions.

I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but a new Netflix docu-series on Formula 1 is coming this Friday.
