I thought when Sky first announced I felt that they need to get some of the support races too to compliment the coverage of F1 I didn't think they'd do it but they have and they will be using the Will Buxton world feed for commentary unbelievably awesome news eurosport was a unreliable and Motors TV lets not get into that and @Binza STOP WHINGING LIKE A GIRL THIS MOANING ABOUT F1 ON SKY IS NOW TEDIOUS AND VERY BORING!!!!! just get the package needed or get out

Well since hardly anybody outside Europe bothers to turn up to watch any of the support races let alone the Grand Prix, I suppose its a good thing. But personally I am going to get off my **** and watch some proper racing this year starting with autoGP and maybe some good old touring cars. GP2 in the last few years has so far produced a few back marker pay drivers and the usual red bull corporate lackies.

People are still complaining about having to pay for Sky? If they don't want to pay, then that's fine. They're clearly not that passionate about F1. Sky packages are dirt cheap, so I don't see what all the fuss is about.

Aye, for a lot of people it is nothing to do with a lack of passion for the sport
and is more to do with not giving any of our hard earned cash to any company that has Murdoch connections
it is a decision based on morels for me and I suspect a lot of others

If it's a question of morals, then fair enough. Each to their own and all that. But I'm assuming that people won't lose any sleep at night just because they're paying for a Murdoch-affiliated service. I know I don't. I've had Sky for a few years now and I know for a fact that I'll be glued to their F1 channel. I just want to see all the races.

Aye, well that's a matter for you & your conscience, but to me and many more not paying money to any Murdoch company is more important than prostituting our principles just so we can watch the races
The problem with it being on $ly is a lot bigger than it being on pay TV

did the 1st one that said something check twitter. Eurosport said that due to contract running out these guys will not show GP2. therefore Sky was not robbing anyone. I was waiting for this type of answer
