There was nothing wrong with the BBC coverage and the Sky coverage isn't any better. There's more of it but quantity doesn't always guarantee quality.

It's only live in the UK if your pants have been pulled down by Rupert Murdoch

I see three problems here.

Firstly If it's not in 50fps, you're going to get horrible motion blur

Secondly If it is in 50fps, everything is going to look like a **** american soap opera

Thirdly aren't you going to get horrendous motion sickness everytime they cut to the onboard? My eyes are telling me, i'm doing 150 and about to enter a tight right hander...but my **** is telling me i'm sat on a sofa.

One final thought though...this could make F1 a LOT more boring....3D doesn't handle moving cameras terribly well....which means every shot will have to be static, no more swooping crane pans & no more wire camera at silverstone...

3D is practicably useless for F1, as the kind of shot that works in 3D (static camera with action moving directly towards the screen), isn't something F1 does well.

When 3D was last used in F1, focusing issues and motion blur meant it was never viable.

Sorry Taz, my pants are right round my ankles and old Bob can smooch by big white butt if he wants, (well, 30% of it), the combined watching of Sky (mainly sport but a bit of other stuff) in my household makes the cost around 20p an hour and that's WELL worth it.
