This represents awful value for the fan. Not only do you get tied into an expensive add on to watch one sport, you'll be paying for it knowing half are being shown for free too. But no fan will just put up with watching half of the races, so they pretty much have to get Sky. That's a ridiculous compromise.

A massive blow to the sport and fans - watch the interest plummet Mr Ecclestone...
