F1 » Ecclestone: BBC/Sky Sports deal not just about money

Bernie Ecclestone: The situation was simple. It was not just about money, it was about doing what is best for F1. The BBC did a great job but together with Sky we will get even better coverage. Look at what Sky do with other sports, they have very good ideas. It will grow the audience, I am sure of it.

If it wasn't just about money mr two face,why wasn't the other ten races offered to itv,channel 4 or channel 5.
Of course it was about money more money for you,all that bullsh*t about free to air tv you make me laugh.

If you are thinking about whats best for the fans as you claim mr two face how about you paying all the uk fans subscriptions to sky sports next year.
I bet you won't do that.

The sky sports deal with the english premier league has made the premier league teams a bucket load of money, it has also increased the gap between the haves and the lower level grass roots have nots, will i still watch f1, probably, but i also think im going to take my kids to watch some grass roots motorsports at castle donnington and such places before it gets killed off.

It is about money and Bernie is talking rubbish when he says it is not.... It's just greed and Bernie is two-faced when he said it wasn't going to go Sky grrrrrr

you greedy little narrow minded fool, of course its about the money its all you have ever cared about all your life, shame on you! enjoy your tainted money which takes away fans from the sport, why should we pay sky to watch, when it just ends up in your grubby little hands.

We already pay per view,I pay a big fee monthly for my T.V. There is no way I will pay any more to watch F1
The result is the same on Monday.This is the thin end
of the wedge next year it will be all PPV.
