Well even less viewers then..
Sky only managed 0.56m viewers for Monaco while the BBC had 4.16m down from 6.1m last year, which seems to be the pattern this year, So all the unpredictability on track has done nothing for viewing figures??

Sky Italia have held exclusive broadcast rights to F1 in the past and their coverage won many awards and distinctions. The free-to-air station that the article mentions is RAI, and their coverage is absolutely cringe worthy. If you can speak Italian, search for the "Mazzoni & Capelli Show" on YouTube and laugh at how incompetent and biased the commentators are.

I'd just like to put on (someone's) record, that I find the Sky coverage pretty dull and somewhat forced, and the BBC coverage entertaining and natural. Engineering Man by day & night, but I prefer no suited pyseuado-tech at the weekend thanks. Also, the Mrs enjoys BBC which technically makes it 'Us Time' thereby producing more 'Me Time' to be spent in the garage. Bonus.

I think the Brits here are forgetting that Sky in various nations runs as independant entities, not as a uniform broadcaster across the world. We have Sky here in Australia too, but it's nothing like Sky in the UK, Germany or Italy. Sky Italia have done great F1 coverage in the past, and I'm friends with many Italians who have always wanted it back. Good news for our Tifosi friends who deserve some credible coverage of F1, not the garbage RAI come up with.
