No German GP is a travesty. Kinda looking forward to the Dutch GP. And I hope to see more progress and success from Honda.

Still no full streaming access through F1 TV in Canada. Getting tired of hunting for questionable sources for full access to the SkyF1 broadcast. What is everyone using these days?

Wow, you guys created a 2020 thread already??

We should state our predictions and then follow up at the end of the season to see who was correct... I'll just state the obvious:

Lewis Hamilton wins his 7th WDC

:)

Otherwise, i suspect that redbull will surpass ferarri in the points and Mclaren will get a couple podiums as well (in the right conditions).

the logistics behind the 1 week timelines on some of these dates seems insane.

Did they renew 2020 yet? I know 2019 was the last year of the last contract, and I would be certain F1 would allow F1TV in the new contract. Can't find any info though, so fingers crossed.

I hope we do get F1TV streaming in Canada. It's been a pain to watch it and there seems to be a lot of commercials on TSN.

I just started getting into F1 last year mostly because of the documentary and started playing a lot more sim racing games lol. I did sign up for F1TV to watch the old races which has been pretty sweet so far

Unless you work for TSN or F1, we don't know that yet. They have no announced a new deal for 2020. The last deal ended at the conclusion of the 2019 season. I'm hoping they include F1TV Pro so I can cut my cable and watch onboards and listen to driver audio.

My prediction for 2020 is that Kimi will be the most honest driver in interviews while remaining the most amusing as always.... Probably will swear a few times on the radio too. If he gets a podium he will drink as much champagne as the other two drivers spray. Other than that I got nothing that I know for sure.

I've tried to do a poll on here but there are too many limits on number of choices etc. Could make it simple and ask everybody to post their forecast for WDC and WCC before the first race. I'll commit to doing that.
