ITV new contract. Wow what a news..
The internet and broadband concept is gaining so much popularity that now you can watch F1 live.
Formula 1 2008 got off to an action-packed start on Friday in Melbourne, with drivers’ skills tested to the limit on the first day of the post-traction control era.
Ferrari and McLaren looked closer than ever on pace, while Red Bull led an intriguing tight midfield pack.
Now it’s time for the serious action to get going, with the first qualifying session of the new season on Saturday morning.
ITV Sport’s live coverage of the fight for pole position begins at 2.15am on ITV1, with a re-run of the action later in the day from 1.20pm on the same channel.
And don’t forget if you are in the UK and not near a TV for this weekend’s action from Albert Park, you can now watch the live ITV1 coverage simulcast here on itv.com/f1.
Qualifying show highlights:

Comments: I watched yesterday it was a very good experience. Picture quality was good and no doubt it was worth watching a F1 friday testing as I had never watched in past. Watching Fischi in 9th and 12th was very special. In total great concept by the ITV people
