first reaction is that its not a surprise, the BBC in the current climate would be hard pressed to justify the cost being asked
Mark Blundell (markblundellF1):
I understand anger at cost I really do, and in a way same as footy fans having to pay for premier league matches on sky an ESPN a while back
it's de ja vu in a way as I and others lost jobs in channel prev to BBC with F1 but at least half races still live on BBC better than none:)
Tony Fernandes (tonyfernandes):
Martin Whitmarsh has said it may breach the Concorde agreement...
I'm as confused as all on sky deal. Just saw on my twitter the unhappiness.
Oliver Jarvis (ollyjarvis):
Dissapointed with the Sky F1 news! Although I think Sky will do a great job F1 should be available to all!
