MotoGP » Rate the 2014 Qatar MotoGP!

bonnethill: I dont have BT sport damn. Chris 76 I would be standing up shouting at the tv as well instead I have to wait till tomorrow to see highlights on ITV 4. I am going to sign up this week . I think this season could be a cracker and i dont want to miss anymore
You could Google vipbox in the mean time :)
Don't bother with BT Sport - get a video pass. At least you get a sensible commentary, replay on demand and EVERY session covered. BT claim to cover all sessions but forget about warm up practice. Also you can avoid the desperately shiny and dull James Toseland and get to see the non-British riders interviewed. Both worth a lot more than the subscription.

MotoGP » Smith hails maiden MotoGP front row

OrangeOrNot: Great to see BS38 being competitive and hope he can get a decent result in the race. In respect of BT Sport, I think they are doing a good job. It's the first event and will take some time to settle down, but the coverage is excellent and the fact they are covering all the sessions is a step further than BBC managed. Stop complaining and just enjoy the coverage!!
OK. So where are the warm up practice sessions for moto2 & 3 then? I always used to watch the practice sessions live on BBC - maybe online only but then thats exactly the same as BT. Except BT use Silverlight which is rubbish and too Windows-centric. I have managed to get it running smoothly on Linux now though. BBC also provided a catch up service on iPlayer. None of that on BT. If you miss the race then tough. ITV4 are doing a highlights show. I also dont see how you can have the race, live timing and on-track location running simultaneously as you are only allowed 2 devices at once.

MotoGP » Qatar Moto3 - Qualifying Results

@Jed Spot on! Especially about the moto2Lowes coverage. Incidentally - another BT Sport whopper fib. "We will be covering every lap of every session live" So, tell me, why does your programme start this afternoon at 1500 when moto3 warm-up practice starts at 1350 and moto2 warm-up starts at 1425? Aside - Just watched the first Asia Talent Cup race. Moto3 bikes ridden by young Asian riders (youngest is 13!) and free to view on Very close racing and good fun.

MotoGP » Qatar Moto3 - Qualifying Results

Have these idiotic commentators on BT Sport ever seen a moto3 bike before? Doesn't sound like it. Also have they any idea about the rules? They keep referring to 15 year old Livio Loi. He is nearly 17 and the minimum age is 16. Its also getting very tedious the way they constantly keep going on about the British riders and then get surprised that Rins did well. And none of the fancy extras on their crappyapp are working. Disappointing

MotoGP » Rossi: Espargaro is the race favourite in Qatar

@codger Other than the off track stuff, the feed is the world feed from Dorna i.e. exactly the same as the BBC used. Would agree about the commentary though. For practice the BBC always used the Dorna team (as they did for moto2/3 races) which was excellent. Bit too much shrieking with Hatpin near a mic for me and his knowledge of moto2/3 seems about the same as Melanie Sykes, although at least she is more likely to pronounce the names properly.
