could see this coming a mile off, as I said months ago, quite honestly he's not really WARNING that it could end cos it's a done deal, and for all you sky viewers out there the next step will be PAY PER VIEW over and above the subscription you pay at the moment wait and see

anybody read Tom Bowers Biography about Bernie called No Angel...... read it if you get a chance, it shows him up for exactly what he is, a money-grabbing little cant.
you hear up and down the pitlane about hows he's helped out teams or principals who have got in the mire, but he doesn't do that out of the kindness of his heart sometime he expects payback big style and every hand he gives out has an IOU attached to it ...... horrible little man

This guy is a piece of work. These strong arm tactics wouldn't work here (US). There's too much going on. The competition for the entertainment dollar is too high. He would drive himself out of business.

@ Taz those are some staggering numbers. I have seen both broadcasts and the BBC coverage kicks butt. Whomever is paying for the Sky coverage is getting ripped off. My opinion of course.

Speed tv in the us airs all f1 races live no matter the time I can't believe that f1 is delayed for the true f1 fans. I'm rare in USA because of NASCAR fans us f1 people are second priority and we get it all live and then replayed in the afternoon.. I hope they don't screw you guys and try the pay- per- view on you.. You need all races free and live and replayed on Sunday afternoon then again on Wednesday afternoon

Hey Bernie we get every f1 race free in America and live too. How can you do that to your people? F1 Will never get new fans unless it's free. I've seen people in the pubs watch it just cause its on and become interested, I am then able to engage them and build the sport up and answer questions. You need to grow the sport it won't grow with pay per view You greedy **
