I know money talk specially in the sport of F1. But why is it that broadcasting rights change in the UK only whereas every other broadcaster in a different country has a long term commitment which helps in the consistency & satisfaction in watching the program. UK has been very fragile with it as earlier it was ITV, then the BBC & now Sky. There's no point sharing the rights as every broadcaster will have its own way of presenting it. And if key people are gone to another channel then we have a choice but I don't know who will interview the drivers during the race weekend. Lee used to do an amazing job.

We don't want that c**p commentary or analysis as it used to happen on Speed TV in the US. I am sorry if I have offended anyone. But just expressing my views.

I like David Droft, his voice is divine :)

And that Sky sports magazine show seems quite promising, any information on that?

I'm amazed with the "Sky will be sending 80 people to every F1 race" thing :blink:
They could be nice and send 81 (me being the 81st, of course :p )

The BBC sent between 45 & 55.

Maybe I should look at their recruitment page :p

Any idea when the BBC will announce who's replacing Brundle and the rest who have left?

Much as I'd hate to do it but if the BBC get Legard or Allen I'll probably pay up for Sky.
