F1 » Channel 4 to televise F1 as BBC cancels contract

First they loose the complete rights, then Top Gear goes and now the rest of the rghts. I wonder how they're going to fill 60+ hours of TV that not showing 10 live races and qualifying + highlights + 10 higtlights only for less than the £20 million they've "saved". I've always been a stauch supporter of the license fee as in general it does give gvfm compared to ad ridden alternatives but am now getting to the point where Im fed up with the BBC dropping key events while still iirc paying large amounts for football and reportedly (from a quick google) £40m a year for Wimbedon. Sky isn't a proper alternative, first you have to fork out £20-30 for all 3 sports channels even if Cricket/Football doesn't interest you and then they still show ads....grrr

F1 » Hamilton rues lack of freedom on strategy

richard: lulus tyres were shot when he came in for his last stop. huge blister on the front left, which was odd as it was the less stressed one.
There was a blister but don't think you or I can say they were shot unless you work for Merc or Pirelli and personally checked the wear markers. The blister was most probably due to a lock up on the IN lap or possibly even braking heavily at the start of pits given it looked fresh and tyres were being ditched (early probably) so of no importance.

F1 » Hamilton rues lack of freedom on strategy

I think your all missing his point, the race like most other Merc one twos was boring as Mercedes once they hold those positions consider safe gaurding status quo paramount above anything else. Given two or 3 pitstops were possible I suspect Lewis would have preferred mixing the strategy like Ferrari did with Vettel eg instead of Rosberg into pits, 1 lap later call in Lewis on all pit stops they could have for example on last pitstop after Rosberg pitted allowed Lewis to do 5 more laps on the harder tyres then switched him to the softer tyres for the last stint. That might have resulted Lewis loosing a little time during those 5 extra laps but reasonable chance of pulling it back after the stop and potentially get close to Rosberg in the final stages with slightly more grip. But Merc plays it safe and bores us to death.

F1 » Alonso: Lack of development makes racing boring

Testing doesn't automatically mean massive budget increases, teams used to test when they liked and weren't teatering on the edge of administration like so many seem to now. The way I see it Team X designs a new front spolier or their engine supplier a new part(s). It gets built but they have to sit on it till the next Friday practice (or longer if engine part) so in the meantime spend ludirous amounts of time in the wind tunnel (not cheap!) or dyno. Alternativly they take the car with old and new parts to local [nominated track...silverstone for most of them] and run back to back tests with old vs new. Time taken to evaluate = 1 day or less at a track, cost maybe 50-100 litres of fuel, some tyres, track hire, maybe 10 mechanics who'd otherwise be at rhe factory anyway. Often the old real world testing is cheaper and much quicker than virtual testing on computers or static wind tunnel tests.

F1 » Ron Dennis brands Eddie Jordan ‘a village idiot’

I like EJ, sure he's a bit of a baffoon but dares to ask questions other pitlane reporters shy away from and perfect balance to DC's more straight laced approach. As for Ron, he's the idiot that fired Whitmarsh, brought in the useless 'I got lucky results one season' Boulier and well one his way to leading the team to its worst 2 years in its history + can't stand his pompous 10 yard stance everytime I see him in the garage

MotoGP » BT Sport price rise for MotoGP viewers

Not sure what this means for Virgin Media cable customer. I get BTSport free with my TV package and don't pay for extra addons like *spit* SkySports or F1. If the knock on effect of BT paying over the odds for football rights which I dont watch means the freebie deal with VM ends then I'm out. Note - I might be prepared to cough up £5/month for MotoGP but anymore and out of principle I won't be paying and suspect the already reduced MotoGP viewer base in the UK will shrink further
