Unless British Eurosport startup a HD channel then MotoGP won't be available on Eurosport in HD as they aren't allowed to broadcast it on Eurosport HD due to the fact it's received in countries outside the UK who may have exclusive contracts with their local broadcasters. Thank you Dorna!

Since 2010 the races have been recorded in HD so it's down to the BBC who I understand will broadcast mostly on BBC2 in 2011 so unless the BBC HD channel is utilised I doubt we will get HD coverage except for maybe one or two rounds as per 2010.

With Qatar under floodlights it would be great to see at least this round on the BBC HD channel although I suspect it will be stuck on BBC 3 with traditionally huge 5 minute build up reduced to 3 minutes as they are always running late with advertisements for forthcoming programmes shown when they are already running late.

Useless!

Here we go again!

Laverty rides under on an Irish race licence (for reasons given many times) but being from Northern Ireland he has a British passport.....interpret that any way you choose!

Tony Carter only has a few questions, and his style is bland, Questions such as: when interviewing riders/mechanics/team manager after being on track "what can you take from the last session" "what have you learnt" which is the same question asked two ways, "what changes are you going to make" which is the same question in real terms, all i can say he must be cheap to hire
