Also had criticism for Antonio Lobato, but that F1 was free and now you pay for having a quality… And speaking of Lobato, also complained about Twitter the ads they put on Movistar F1. Does advertising on a pay channel that promises to give you the race with no cuts? Yes, split-screen, and that on their own website, they promise not to interrupt…
