So Brundle has gone to Murdoch. The man that has been making fools of us. The man who has his tenticles amongst our politicians. The man who has been invading our privacy with impunity.
We are in trouble when the good guys do nothing. Take a view if you detest Murdoch don't hook up with sky or anything from News Corporation.

Fair enough. Brundle is a businessman and going to Sky is the best decision for him. I despise the fact that Sky are stealing the coverage, but that's not Martin's fault.

If you want to protest then don't subscribe to Sky. If they don't get enough new customers out of the deal, they won't renew it. Then F1 can come back to terrestrial TV in future.

Makes me laugh listening to people knock sky. You cant deny they have greatly improved the viewing experience with many sports. I am sure Mr Murdoch will be really upset that these holier than though 'fans' dont subscribe

Martin moved from ITV to BBC, no-one complained. He is the lead commentator on F1 so will continue to be so.

You think Martin is a businessman? You should meet his brother Robin. Now there's a businessman.

Some of us holier than thou fans can not afford to subscribe to rupert murdochs piggy bank.
Personally i've been watching F1 for fifty years its had its good times,its had its bad times,its had its tearful times but now murdochs got his talons in F1 i'm b*ggered if i'm going to pay upwards of 350 pounds to watch it every year and after this stab in the back from the bbc if i could get away without paying my tv licence i would.
the bbc can stick their shabby excuse for formula one coverage next year and they can also stick wimbledon.
As for Brundle he can go where he likes i will not be watching.

doris. there are internet sites where you can hack into sky etc. then if you have a dongle for your tv, you can project on to your tv.

i'm thinking of setting up a second sat dish that i've got for next year.
i just need to find a free to air channel thats showing f1 live in 2012.I can't take highlights from the bbc i'd sooner not watch any f1 rather than watch highlights.
F1 always was a rich mans sport it looks like you've got to be rich to watch it now as well.
