I am not watching next year. I am not getting Sky Sports on top of my TV license, current cable subscription. May aswell go and watch the race at the track for the amount it costs. I hope it fails big time and ruins that little !?&@ and the other !?&@.

F1 has lost its appeal, young UK drivers stand no chance of coming up with the money it costs, so lets leave F1 to the countries that can afford to support their young drivers

To the Beeb, get GT's on TV much more interesting and goodbye Bernie thank you for all your support

And don't forget, a Sky Sports subscription doesn't just put money into F1 - it helps stuff the pockets of the obscenely overpaid footballers.

its a sad day but since i'm one of the lucky ones who have Sky they might take the coverage to a whole new level. If you look at their coverage of the Premier League/Super League Rugby and even Speedway its second to none I hope they put Tony Jardine as one of the pundits.

I'm not going to let the bbc and sky stop me watching F1 for free.
