PSA - they just released the F1 TV app for Roku, if any of you are subscribed to that. I haven't installed it yet, but just saw it in my news feed this morning. I can finally stop casting the stream from my laptop, yay.
Signed up for the F1 TV "Access" last night. $26 for the year for access to all the race/session replays and all the historical stuff. Watched the 1998 Spa GP last night. Good stuff.
I figure on the odd chance I do get to watch a race live I can just watch the normal Sky sports feed via ESPN. Works pretty well on the Roku. Wish fast forward had a preview of the seeking like every other fast forward interface in the world.

“In the middle of the car we have followed the pit lane trend by moving our upper side impact tube to the lower position and banking the aerodynamic gain that comes with this layout.
"At the rear of the car we have gone for an adventurous suspension layout in order to free up aerodynamic development opportunity. All three investments were improvements in their own right, but their real effect is to mobilise a raft of secondary aerodynamic gains both during the winter and, we hope, across the season to come.”

Explaining why the 2020 car was not revealed, [CEO of Renault F1, Cyril] Abiteboul said he had grown tired of the media commenting on theoretical representations or fictional pieces that are often used in launches as if they were real.
“After last year, I read what they wrote, and I read what people say about what they write about the images we publish, and I felt extremely frustrated by people, you know, really reacting to cars as if they were real.” .
