Well Brawn did accuse Lotus for devoloping exaust with clever engine system and accused them for cheating indirectly. But i agree with Lotus guy, Brawn should really spend time looking in his team instead watching others what they did. This still confirm my rule: If you can't speed up, you can atleast try make your competition slower. Brawn follow that rule 100% percent, his head is on platee if Mercedes dont deliver results this year.

Thank you, I do to for the commentary, however, I believe Sky Sport is broadcasting the test on TV and was wondering if anyone knows of live streams available online.

update: I just found that the SP are broadcasting the test live from 2pm GMT on each day of the test. There will be live streams available, but obviously not for another 5 hours or so!

I believed that too – but it's not on... Dunno what all the fuss about them doing it was about.

Sorry, I don't get what your post above tells us. What I am telling you is that I have Sky Sports F1, and they are not broadcasting testing. They certainly were advertising that they would be, but they are not.

It tells you that Sky will be broadcasting the test from 2pm GMT. I'm looking at the website which was updated yesterday.
