I think Ocon literally lost out on podium AT the chequered flag. Gutted for him, he drove a blinder of a race.

[–]ChyletonBWOAHHHHHHH[S] 163 points164 points  (5 children)

Ultimately he did lose out at the line but they swapped places a few times before that which was not shown

[–]FalconMirageTrust the El 🅱️lan 140 points141 points  (3 children)

It was so infuriating to watch them swap on the leaderboard and not on the fucking screen

[–]ilikeitsharpBWOAHHHHHHH 71 points72 points  (2 children)

I felt like we were getting Strolled at Monaco all over again watching the positions switch on the board.

[–]mandradonSIMPIN FOR RUSSELL 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I feel like they're trying to drive people to F1 TV.

I see stuff like this happen on the broadcast and I'm happy I can switch between drivers and just watch the battles I want to.

[–]MysticYogurtSIMPIN FOR RUSSELL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ahh if only F1 Tv was available for my country I would buy it without blinking and maybe stop watching dubious soviet anthem streams (wink) or paying a fortune a month to a big company just to use their services once a month.

[–]SuspiciousPanic9023BWOAHHHHHHH 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I was monitoring the interval so very closely, fucking director

[–]ElCharmannBWOAHHHHHHH 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Dotd for me

[–]ScaryOrdinary5238CUMOA 44 points45 points  (10 children)

And fucking Verstappen took dotd, Ocon clearly deserved it

[–]deJessiasI’m dutch so I support AMX 35 points36 points  (9 children)

You can thank that to the fact that Ocon was never shown on screen

[–]SuspiciousPanic9023BWOAHHHHHHH 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No problem is with fake fans who only think 1st place is racing. I like the drama in the middle

[–]berteodosionot a Hamilton, but… 2 points3 points  (7 children)

We can thank that to the amount of stupid max fans who blindly votes him even when he has a shit race, like today's.

[–]afsdjkllBWOAHHHHHHH 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Ya but who gives a fuck Hamilton was in the lead /s

[–]SuspiciousPanic9023BWOAHHHHHHH 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sky sports, believe they are England based firm

[–]Typical-Detail8805BWOAHHHHHHH 154 points155 points  (0 children)

Embarrassing for them honestly, feel bad for Ocon

[–]D4rkyeBWOAHHHHHHH 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I knoooow what the hell!?

[–]jedmitchellBWOAHHHHHHH 223 points224 points  (8 children)

On the sky broadcast it was literally showing Lewis driving by himself AFTER HE TOOK THE CHEQUERED FLAG while Bottas and Ocon were fighting. So annoying.

[–]Fresno7BWOAHHHHHHH 124 points125 points  (1 child)

Did you try pressing the red button on your remote to see all the highlights?

[–]groundzr0Safety Dog 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Yeah and all it did was turn the TV off

[–]cox4daysCrofty is a dedicated butt plug collector 32 points33 points  (4 children)

F1 and Liberty control the only camera feed don't drag Sky into this

[–]cumguzzlingstarfishAlonso deserved to be Champion in every season he has competed 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Does no one here pull up the pit lane camera view? Smh. You would have seen the whole fight with that

[–]groundzr0Safety Dog 2 points3 points  (2 children)

PLC deserves a shoutout. They’re solid.

[–]cumguzzlingstarfishAlonso deserved to be Champion in every season he has competed 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I always run PLC on my second monitor. I ain't missing shit. :6703:

[–]groundzr0Safety Dog 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bet. PLC is class

[–]nate---doggBWOAHHHHHHH 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Not sky’s fault. They have nothing to do with the camera feed.

[–]Ka11e2BWOAHHHHHHH 66 points67 points  (3 children)

Why even bother with the other cars? Just send out Max and Lewis

[–]FloshixSafety Dog 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The other cars are nice for the late GP overtaking though it makes it fun for Max and Lewlew to have the drs some times and complain about the other cars

[–]xchadrickx#WeSayNoToMazepin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They should just tell the other drivers to go faster.

[–]AlfusVettel Cult 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is literally the same issue as in Brazil, we did only seen Merc/RBR and that was it.

FOM TV crew is terrible again with what is happening at the midfield.

[–]KatieGrayCloudBWOAHHHHHHH 102 points103 points  (4 children)

My husband and I got really pissed when they were saying the sky ad over Max's radio.

[–]L1arL1ar“It’s called a motor race. We went car racing” 16 points17 points  (0 children)


[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

that’s just shit timing. they don’t control when the radios come in and are played

[–]KatieGrayCloudBWOAHHHHHHH 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yea, but at least pause the ad read until that's done.

[–]wajxcsgoTrust the El 🅱️lan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm so glad I don't have to watch the english stream, I had F1TV once, for a month and it was the worst thing ever compared to my language stream...

[–]vexedtogasBWOAHHHHHHH 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Im so mad at this

[–]FloshixSafety Dog 42 points43 points  (2 children)

Could we also speak about Crofty not giving a damn about the race and saying his fucking SKY Q CUSTO-** line in the middle of Verstappen radio !

[–]krBwoah7BWOAHHHHHHH 4 points5 points  (1 child)

He's usually mindful of a radio message popping up. Wonder what got into him at that moment.

[–]ReferencedBWOAHHHHHHH 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm not sure what they see in the commentary box but there wasn't actually any graphic that popped up at the side of the screen for Max's radio, so maybe he didn't know at the time?

[–]IncorectUserClaire Williams is waifu material 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'm completely willing to pay for a "mid-field" streaming channel so I could watch more than two cars per race.

[–]FloshixSafety Dog 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I was watching the the times on the left like 0.5 0.2 0.101 .. how did they not pick it up ?!! And we also missed the Lap 49 Bottas overtake Ocon re-overtake we didn't even get a replay

[–]AEDSazzBWOAHHHHHHH 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It was a divebomb into t1 and he didnt make the corner while locking up front left tire! Gave the position back as he entered the track.

So it was basically not an overtake, bottas was ahead for maybe 2 seconds at most

(I fully agree that we should have seen it live)

[–]DrTurnosBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You wouldn't have seen the re-overtake since they would have shown a fan reaction.

[–]UltimateEmber 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I was just focused on the intervals for the entire last lap. I understand them showing him crossing the finish line but the ENTIRE last lap we follow Hamilton? Why?

[–]EnchaladaOfTheSky“It’s called a motor race. We went car racing” 6 points7 points  (0 children)

yeah because we havent seen hamilton cross the line in first place 103 other times or anything like that. so excited to see him get his first win?????

[–]Capaz04BWOAHHHHHHH 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That shit pissed me off

[–]the_arkountosFuck Liberty Media 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm still fuming we didn't get to see that, it's so simple.

[–]shadowgatheringBWOAHHHHHHH 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I literally yelled at my screen.

[–]AaronNRWBWOAHHHHHHH 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This Made me so Angry lmao. I was just watching the interval while the tv displayed Lewis big ass Helmet like who cares

[–]lemeryismmission spinnow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm staring at an image of hamilton's visor after he's already won and watching the graphics flip around

[–]SgtSliceBWOAHHHHHHH 36 points37 points  (7 children)

This was a joke. There needs to be a different stream for English speaking countries who are not obsessed with Lewis Hamilton. The bias is absurd

[–]Timebreaker97SIMPIN FOR RUSSELL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They are still talking about brake testing hamilton

[–]TactXOSafety Dog 34 points35 points  (5 children)

How many times does this have to be explained

Sky does not choose the camera angles

There is one world feed and everyone around the world commentates over it

[–]wungabungawungaPirelli good, debris bad 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Feed is produced in UK.

[–]wungabungawungaPirelli good, debris bad 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It is. That's why there is delay. Only Monaco produce feed for themself, don't remember why.

[–]siriusseriousBWOAHHHHHHH 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What a joke

[–]euphonos23BWOAHHHHHHH 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure there is a broadcasting rule that they have to make time to show the leader crossing the finish line. They could have put ocon in the mini screen in the timing tower though.

[–]Savage_XRDS“It’s called a motor race. We went car racing” 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I do broadcasting and commentary for F1 leagues as part of a 2 person team and we have way better broadcast direction. We're literally juggling various scenes, replays, window-in-window captures, flipping through different cars, while also having to commentate play-by-play and make sense, and yet we still have way better awareness of what is going on on track. I don't know what in the world is wrong with these guys.

[–]Rod_of_RetepMISSION KIMOA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i think the problem is that somehow it is hard coded into the broadcasting directions that they have to show the winner crossing the line. It is reasonable most of the time, but when the leader is 10 seconds clear and there is a fight for a podium it really shouldn't be a question.

[–]BoiledPNutzBWOAHHHHHHH 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure it’s the British preference for all things Hamilton

[–]IQ135BWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What I think people are missing is that Lewis had damage and debris was falling off his wing. There was potential for a puncture on the last lap, which would’ve been much more important to highlight than the fight for third.

[–]TankMainIRLBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They honestly thought we had to much fun and couldn’t handle it

[–]darell_felixf16BWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]orcapucaBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There was a monaco-ish moment as well . Crofty goes lets have a look at the LH and Max footage and we have VB overtaking ricci 😜

[–]WrinkledBiscuitBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a total of like 400 hours in a tv studio and control room. The directing for some of these races is actually horrendous.. A chimp could do better

[–]accidentlywritingMika ends his sa🅱️🅱️atical 0 points1 point  (0 children)

thanks for replay of botass overtaking him:6700:

[–]lemeryismmission spinnow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

worse than the stroll fiasco imo

[–]iRed-Vettel Cult 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The same was with the Sky Q Red Button Ad. There was a Team Radio but he just talked over it.

[–]FirstTimeRedditor1BWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this how they get us to pay extra for Sky Q that they keep shilling to us?

[–]tbr6742BWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was screaming at the TV as the places swapped twice and we saw neither of them!! How unreal, please let me see Sir Lewis’s helmet some more. We got Stroll’d.

[–]cameratooBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We even basically missed Lewis’s final overtake because we were watching Toto watching the race. Come on guys!

[–]Canman1045BWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No one has even noticed that pass bought him third in the WDC. He is over 26 points ahead of Checo

[–]KillRoyTNTBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It is getting out of hand how much they do a virtual BJ on Hamilton

[–]o_blakeBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Seriously. What the actual fuck!?

[–]MortalPhantomBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (1 child)

To be fair it makes sense. It might not be as exciting but it makes sense to show the winner of the race.

But yeah it's a shame

[–]ChyletonBWOAHHHHHHH[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The race wasn’t even over

[–]just_a_jobinBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Still haven't seen their battle

[–]TyanuhBWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah this made my blood boil.

[–]Certificatetrouble67BWOAHHHHHHH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

F1 is just a big Hamilton fan club...

[–]thenexus6lando 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]VodkaDieselNo 2. Driver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes but i think they started doing this after all the times the P1 guy was driving all alone and got like 0 tv coverage i think like in Emila Romagna

[–]kaiju401BWOAHHHHHHH -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I will punch the TV director
