Well greedy Sky managed to **** this up for every one. Lets hope that only a minority buy there package. There was uproar when ITV had it & lets bo onest the BEEB have done a fantastic job this year which Sky will not be able to better. And it was FREE. If Sky's viewing figures are down then maybe the sponsors will help to get it back to Free per View.

Have to agree here with'baldi1kinobe' - the BBC have done a truely wonderful job with F1 their coverage has been superb!! I for one cannot afford to purchase a Sky subscription, I'll be lucky if my wages cover the basics next year! We're expected to pay more for many things these days, but this is a step too far for my budget. This could be a huge mistake all round. Anyone with Sky will be able to watch F1 anyway, but I don't foresee a huge rush for Sky subscriptions, just for the privilege of tuning into an average of 200ish hours of F1 coverage! Bernie has done a great deal raising the profile of F1 around the world, but I think it's now time for him to retire before he does anymore damage to the sport.
