Well greedy Sky managed to **** this up for every one.
Lets hope that only a minority buy there package. There was uproar when ITV had it & lets bo onest the BEEB have done a fantastic job this year which Sky will not be able to better. And it was FREE. If Sky's viewing figures are down then maybe the sponsors will help to get it back to Free per View.

Have to agree here with'baldi1kinobe' - the BBC have done a truely wonderful job with F1 their coverage has been superb!! I for one cannot afford to purchase a Sky subscription, I'll be lucky if my wages cover the basics next year! We're expected to pay more for many things these days, but this is a step too far for my budget. This could be a huge mistake all round. Anyone with Sky will be able to watch F1 anyway, but I don't foresee a huge rush for Sky subscriptions, just for the privilege of tuning into an average of 200ish hours of F1 coverage!
Bernie has done a great deal raising the profile of F1 around the world, but I think it's now time for him to retire before he does anymore damage to the sport.

Im just thinking now that Sky have taken F1 away from Millions of UK Non Subscribers how many of the sponsors will withdraw their advertising etc When they realise the lack of enthusiasm in the sport caused by those that cant afford Sky. its the sport that will suffer.

After avidly watching Formula One all my waking life, I will only see half of this year's races.
I'll still have my memories from the British glory days of Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill and James Hunt. I won't forget Nikki Lauda's ghastly fireball, nor my local hero Nigel Mansell. Then there was the brilliant Damon Hill, the cheating Scummacher, and now current heroes Button and Hamilton. When I first watched back in the late sixties, F1 was very dangerous, with countless teams taking part. Gradually it has become sanitized, and safer for drivers and spectators. F1 drivers could finish well in about half of the year's races, and yet become Champion! So many DNFs: crashes, breakdowns, blowouts....
I am now disabled: I have no personal income except my Disability Allowance, and I feel bad enough about relying on my wife's earnings, without asking for money for Sky-Sports subscripts.
However, there is a silver lining: even if I could afford forty pieces of silver, I wouldn't want to

to finish my sentence....

However, there is a silver lining: even if I could afford forty pieces of silver, I wouldn't want to line the Judas Murdox family pockets with them!
I am sickened by UK gov't and BBC having any dealings at all with News InterPhonicall and SkyTheeVee.
