I cancelled it but may have another look. Quest coverage looks ok if you don't intend watching the whole thing, 2 hours at the start, another hour at 10pm and the last four and a half hours to the finish on Sunday.
i think i'm going to cancel it off and try the eurosport player 7 day free trial instead, qualifying has now popped up in the list but won't play so suggests that anything live is going to have a delay which doesn't appeal for these circumstances

Amazon/Eurosport didn't work for me either - not live. Sorry as it was me that suggested. Its all very cryptic and googling just takes to old "help" pages.

The Eurosport player app and free trial works great on my Samsung Smart TV.

A lot of advert breaks on Eurosport during Quali last night though.

Does your TV come with an internet browser? If so, can you just get to the Eurosport Player web site from there and watch it?
Yes it does have a web browser but it's rubbish and very difficult to use! But many thanks for your help. beer

Anyway I've sorted it, I got the ES app on my android phone and cast/mirrored it t the TV, works perfectly and very good quality. Today I've also managed to do sort of the same from my Windows tablet - not sure how I managed it because I struggle to add people to my contacts list!

Someone mentioned adverts - last year ES did a commentary free stream, just ambient sound and it didn't have any adverts, I used that and synced up RLM for the best of both worlds.

Yes mine is now working via a fire stick - the camera quality is abysmal however.

There are a few live feeds on YouTube. A live stream similar to the Eurosport coverage and one in the cockpit of the rebellion car.

Red flag.

That was some odd on the mulsanne straight flipped up over the fence!!


Can that car be repaired for race day or are the chassis scrap?

I'm loving having no adverts in the WEC app.

Lots of cars off in that session. The next one should be interesting.

Yep no adverts as yet on Eurosport.

Looks like Kyosho going for outright lap record again. Will Alonso deliver?

Seems like Eurosport are treating qualyfung like an interview exercise, watched about 10 minutes and most of it was interviews.


Complete and utter garbage. Oh and Carlton Kirby. Please do me a favour and run him over!

Quest are showing the start and finish and the odd bit in between
Not on their website but shows on my planner
Just spotted this too, I’m sure it wasn’t on the planner yesterday so looks like a late addition.
I looked a few days ago and it definitely wasn't on the schedule ,glad it has now appeared.

4.5 hours Sunday morning to afternoon is great stuff.

That’s because of the yellow slow zones.

Eurosport have a show talk 24 or something similar inbetween the core qualifying it’s what is always the case.

Don’t worry there is loads of racing some 2 hours more of qualifying to go tonight

Got the eurosport £6.99 7 day trial going. App casts in HD to tv from phone and all works great. watching the wet qualy now.

Happy days, get to enjoy LM on my birthday again, an annual tradition for the past 5 years now.

Wife cant fathom it haha.

Alonso seems happy to be in a fast car for once in 2018
