MotoGP » BT Sport signs MotoGP deal with North One


If they used the Dorna feed with Gavin Emmett & Nick Harris (as BBC and Eurosport do for moto2/3) they could save a few bob and save us from the lousy pronunciation of the riders names by Tony Moodily and Jillian Raider. One good thing is that the chances of any nightmares in bubble cars is almost zero. The fox has been shot. It is an ex-fox. I too have BT so get it free but as fibre is not here I can only use the online stuff. And that won't work on secure computers, only windows ones as they use the appalling Microsoft Silverlight viewer (dumped by almost everyone else). I did watch the test in Valencia. No comment about the feed as it was a straight lift from Dorna, picture and commentary but it was peppered with adverts. If they start putting adverts in qualifying or the race, I'll watch a low quality dodgy feed without ads. The motogp.com coverage is really good but at £23/mth for the limited and £33/mth for the full package, not really justifiable for me.

F1 » F1 to introduce pole trophy


I think I know what's happened. The FIA have been having 'business discussions' with senior members of the Co-op Bank. That or they have been having 'strategic meetings' with the Mayor of Toronto. Coming up with all these batty ideas doesn't come easy, you know. Holding the meeting immediately after the annual FIA How many bottles of Krug can you drink in an hour Dinner isn't such a smart idea.

F1 » German bank to join legal pursuit of Ecclestone?


Its starting to look like some orchestration is going on (cue: Man in swivel chair stroking cat). Could it be that someone wants the little one out and has found a chink that has eluded many? Bernie is looking tired and confused nowadays (q.v. revolving door) and while he has made F1 a global spectacular, that was several years ago. For the last 10 years he has been making money by flogging F1 to clueless countries who hand over vast amounts for a couple of years and then get fed up. The tyre debacle is largely down to BE 'spicing up' the show. The medals and sprinklers fortunately were consigned to the bin. Does F1 need Bernie any more? They could certainly do with some more of the income stream. And as for the owners, they have had to suspend the floatation because of the court case and that must hurt. The Christmas card list is getting shorter and shorter.
