I've just heard that the BBC will be sharing coverage with Sky. BBC will only be covering half of the races live.
I wouldn't be happy with that since I don't have sky

You will get to see it on speedway soon with ads and terrible commentary Kev

Edit: It also doesn't sit well with my current boycott of any news corp stuff.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

I was searching for the sky/BBC thing on google and it came up. It's good to see Hamilton back to his x self

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Hi,

on one hand I am very disappointed about the Sky/BBC decision as I have no desire to pay for the very sky tv service. On the other hand at least it means some F1 stays on the BBC. May it is back to RTL 1 coverage for the races not being shown live by the BBC.

Have fun

Martin

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Sounds like 50% will be live on BBC and 50% will be the full race but on later. Guess this cuts the money they pay to Bernie....

SO no need to get Sky :-)

I heard that the delayed 50% on the BBC will only be extended highlights. They have implied that Monaco and Silverstone will be shown live on BBC.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Fernando. Felipe is faster than you

Can we give McLaren a crash course on strategy?

I'm glad Button won. Not glad that Vettel has extended his lead.

3 British drivers in the top ten

I still don't understand how you, who is British, can have so much hate for him

I do like Button better than Hamilton...but this year is a battle for second after this race


The battles between Button and Hamilton were amazing. Some of the most entertaining racing I've seen

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Well, as I am now based in the USA, I was unable to catch the race at Spa but after reading how it progressed, I'm gutted to have missed it.

Great race from Schumi. Didn't something happen to Shammy

Am off to the local cable supplier asap to get the full sports package. Can't mis another race.

Either that, or you may have to get to like watching cars racing round and round in circles.
