As usual, thanks for the ping, Chode.
A while back I believe you posted some links to F1 live streams. Looked, but cannot find that post anymore.
Could you repost those links, please?
Where is the ping? Where is Saturday’s qualifying?

Duh! Scrolled right past that... Will try ‘em tomorrow.
Armed attackers have targeted British Formula 1 driver Jenson Button in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, his McLaren racing team have confirmed.
His car was attacked, but Button was unhurt, McLaren said.
Button had been in practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos, and will start 11th on the grid.
Brazil's major cities have a bad record for serious crimes of violence, which have caused concern ahead of major events like the 2014 World Cup.
"Would-be assailants made an attempt to approach the car that was carrying Jenson Button" on Saturday, said the statement from McLaren.
Button, 33, was quickly driven away by an armed policemen in the reinforced armoured vehicle provided by McLaren.
Button's manager Richard Goddard and trainer Mike Collier were also in the vehicle.
"The police driver of Jenson's vehicle reacted swiftly and, using avoidance techniques, rapidly forced his way through the traffic, taking Jenson and the other occupants of the car immediately away from any danger and back to their hotel," McLaren said.
The team added "the Sao Paulo authorities have also acted efficiently and will be providing additional security" on for Button and other team members on Sunday.
Somehow my DVR missed both practice and qualifying. Wow, Hulkenberg on pole, would have never thought that was possible after the year they have had. They’ve been 2nd tier all season (strong, but not fighting for top 5 finishes), and to go #1 and 6 on the grid is awesome for them.
Poor Button, he has really had a tough time these last 4-5 races.
My guess is Webber is not at RB in 2011. I hope it is Vettel’s friend Kimi. It is no coincidence that Kimi’s rally sponsor on the Peugeot jnr team is Red Bull.
I did not see “qually” as Alonso calls it. I think it had been raining and it had started to dry. The Hulkster go on slicks.
didn’t something like this happen about two or three years ago?? an F1 team was leaving the circuit and got robbed??
hulkenburg didn’t just take the pole, he destroyed everyone...his second to last lap in Q3 was like .4 up on the field then he was .9 faster on the last lap...destroyed everyone...
i'd love to see Kimi/Vettel next year
the ping list is on my home page if you ever want to use it
Awesome. There was scuttlebutt that he was fighting for his job, might have saved his future in F1 with that drive, even if it is not with Williams.
I doubt the rest of the teams have it. Brazil has always been dangerous with crime for the teams.
Kimi and Vettel are friends and as soon as Kimi went to WRC to drive - he had a Red Bull sponsorship. I think he had the deal before he left Ferrari.
I prefer Vettel to win the WC followed by Alonso but maybe now I want Webber. He probably deserves it. He has pushed “the next Schumacher” all season long.
remember it well...believe if was after friday practice...betcha they mention it during the telecast tomorrow...
“Teams are always on the watch for attempted armed attacks on members leaving the circuit after previous incidents over the years despite a strong police presence.
Members of the Toyota team were ambushed at gunpoint four years ago as they left the circuit, with shots fired by a gang of youths who also tried to kick in their car windows. None suffered any injury.”

And Brazil has the Summer Olympics in 2016, right? That ought to be interesting.
Then Mogadishu in 2020? It would seem to be the natural follow up.
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin tested his capacities as a Formula 1 pilot, driving a racing car for several hours at a speed of 240 km/ h (149 miles per hour) on a special track in the Leningrad Region in Russia's northwest.
Three racing cars - two vehicles for racing in the Formula's youth completions and one intended for the Formula 1 Grand Prix, were put on show in St. Petersburg on November 6 and 7. As part of the presentation of the racing cars, Putin personally drove a racing car on a special track in the Leningrad Region. Before getting into the car's cockpit, the premier received detailed instructions on how to drive the racing car.
The premier put on a helmet with Russia's national emblem and the word Russia inscribed on it, and also a Formula 1 outfit with his initials. The yellow color of the racing car was reminiscent of the Lada Kalina sport car that Putin had used to drive along the Chita-Khabarovsk Highway in the Russian Far East earlier this year.
A month ago, Putin attended a ceremony of signing an agreement with Formula One in the Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi, under which Russia will stage a Grand Prix in the country between 2014 and 2020.
When is race time?
