F1 » Sky Sports secures exclusive F1 broadcasting from 2019


This totally shows that Bernie has completely lost all touch with reality. Comments that why should we watch it for free show a complete misunderstanding of how so called free to air TV is funded, we pay for it either by advertising or by a licence fee as in the UK. Advertisers want more TV coverage rather than less. And finally, the only sport I would want to watch on Sky is F1, which makes it very expensive, probably over £600 a year by the time we get to 2019 to watch approximately 20 Grand Prix. Attempts to spice up the show by fixing something that ain't broke is not going to increase viewing numbers when people like me stop watching because we either choose not to afford to watch or cannot afford to watch on Sky. F1 will be losing this viewer who has regularly watched it on TV since the 70s , since the advent of video recorders I think I have probably missed a couple of GPs. From 2019 I will miss them all expect. The one change F1 to make is to get rid of Bernie!!!

F1 » Horner questions Mercedes sanction


Christian Horner forgets all the times his team have bent the rules to suit Red Bull. The FIA took a pragmatic view of the situation, the guidance given to Pirelli and Mercedes was unclear. As a result if a stronger sanction was given it would have gone through the courts with the likelihood that it would been overturned. Being banned from the young driver test is a gesture. What is more important is that the FIA have agreed to clarify the regulations about testing. Hopefully this will include a review of testing that includes some tyre testing days offered to all teams. I suggest a Monday after one or more GPs.

F1 » Di Montezemolo questions FIA 'courage'


Ferrari the team that is always first to complain if a ruling doesn't go the way it wants. Ferrari the team that cites it it being victimised if it loses a case. Ferrari the team that get extra cash from the Concorde agreement because it is Ferrari. Ferrari the team that complains it is treated unfairly if sanctioned, threatens to sue or withdraw from F1, others accept it gracefully. My view we hear to much from Ferrari, I much preferred them when Brawn was in charge, with Schumacher driving. Sure they manipulated race results with team orders but at least they built a car worthy of a great champion. Time they stop moaning and concentrate on building a better car.

F1 » 'Three in running' for Red Bull seat


At this time of the year I would not believe anything said by Horner about who is going to drive for the team. He is trying to directly unsettle 4 of the potential drivers and see how they react over the next few races. Alongside this he will see how other hopefuls he hasn't mentioned react and drive over the next few races. It is all about psychological game playing in the driver market.
