I just use free livestreams now. After their latest price jack I refuse to pay ever again especially after half a season last year that they charged full price for.

Exactly! I'm already logged on watching the last bit of moto3. As soon as motogp warm up lap started, it kicks me off. Still cant get on as I post this.

I'm pretty much at that stage. Can't tell you how many times I've turn off auto subscription. Only to have it somehow turn on back by itself.

Race turned out to be uninteresting. Thought it would see a lot more interesting stuff happen. Best aspect was Aleix getting the Aprilia on the podium. Best ride of the weekend easily. FQ was on fire. Can't match that corner speed or braking at all. Well done on his part. He'll easily win the title this year since no one else has enough consistency to make a run.

I'm just getting extremely tired of the Michelin tires because they do not lend themselves to interesting racing in my opinion. Tire management is a part of life, but now it's become the prominent theme in every single race. Doesn't make for good or interesting racing. Embarrassing.

Yeah dunno.
Fab ran the soft front.
Our commentary made a big deal of him maybe running out of pace toward the end.
Didn't happen like it did to Bagnaia.

Totally agree there. They seem to have the same issues they had from back in the days. The Bridgestone's to me were far more superior! The michelin tires is one overrated product/brand. In my 50 odd years, the only times I've bought michelin tire new, is when I buy a new vehicle with them on. I can tell you as they ware, they are rubbish.

I've never been a big fan of races at Silverstone. Always thought of it as a parking lot with chicanes. Too flat. IMHO the lack of elevation changes always makes for indifferent racing, with bikes.

Fabs was great, no surprise there.

Schmarquez rode like a 16 year old. Really disappointing. No doubt he wanted to get to front and run away before Fabio could warm up his tires. What a schmuck.

Rins had good racecraft on the day.

Good for Espargaro and Aprilia. Loved watching him dice with Miller in that last lap, tho his passing him again in that nice tight line, was pretty much a given, as even after all this time, the Ducati still can't turn.

Pol while not on the podium, looked as in-control of the Honda as anyone not named Marqez, has done in ages. He rode the bike pretty damned smooth, not making crazy shapes that Marquez needs to win.

Re: Michelin street tires, I respectfully disagree. I have three bikes and go through tires on a regular basis and have tried all the better known sticky rubber and don't find the Michelin to be drastically better or worse than the competitors. I like the Power Pilots; sticky enough and very predicable.

Feed packed up just before the start demanding subscription which was paid 4 months ago. Feed cam back with 1 lap to go. What a load of bollocks. Then got a message apologising 3 hours after the race. I reckon its caused by over selling subs and the servers can't cope with the demand just before the race. I'm done with it.

How do I find a free feed?
