I doubt the current spec of Google Glass technology can withstand the forces of F1. But I'd expect the technology to be developed into something that you'll in many sports in the next few years.

McNish on 5Live. He was really, really good on Sky. I'll miss him there.

More embarrassing part was he should have known better, since he had served as the driver representative steward a few times before. Anyway he'd be a valuable asset to the team, though Jaime 'it's difficult to say' Alguersuari exceeded my expectations as a commentator. :p

The app is free but to get any live timing (or indeed anything useful) you have to pay 24 quid. Apart from that it's just an F1 info app.

Viewing the tv guide, I see that Abu Dhabi Sports does have the rights for the Formula One, although they show only the premium channels, probably to convince the people to subscribe to their sport package.

I'd like to have a setup with 3 lnb (13e-19,2e-26e) :)

Because they are only showing the premium package. Abu Dhabi Sports 2 will show the races for free (Arabic).
