Sorry. There will be an F1 Legends on Eddie Irvine. Have the producers forgotten the premise of the show?

He is a 'legend' so to speak over here in the UK. Him and Berger for example, non WDC but they are known, forever written, nearly men, great men.

And with some great stories to tell. Which is why I'm looking forward to it, always seem to learn something knew from them.

Oh I know, I'm from England originally, don't let the American flag fool you. I just found it funny that he's being profiled as a Legend.

So Nothing But c**p considers some people on bikes to be more important than German GP practice, but even that pales in comparison to the fact that they also considered some people on bikes to be more important than the British GP. If they're still treating us like this during Spa I'm going to start a petition.

I like the coverage of Abu Dhabi Sports 2.
There is a complete coverage of the weekend of the Formula 1, the GP2 Series (qualifying and races), the GP3 Series and the Porsche Supercup races.

At no additional cost, I have the possibility to watch the entire weekend :)

I hope that Abu Dhabi Sports will keep up the rights, although I don't know when the current contract will expire.

Anyone watch the F1 Show with the live studio audience? I thought it was rubbish, much worse than the usual show. What the hell is the BBC's and Sky's obsession with Alastair Griffin? The show did not need to be an hour and a half, and certainly did not need him taking up time.

I believe in 2016 but I don't think AD is very keen to keep the rights.

It was not so bad. I liked the questions from the audience but I find Natalie so "fake". She's very annoying :roll::

Even though it was long but they didn't provide a lot of information, showing the sky news team behind the simulator :zz:

It was ok but certainly not as good as it could have been. They should have made more of the audience questions, chopped it by 30 mins and got rid of the unnecessary singer. They would have been better off just doing a straight audience question show. Hand the mic round, people ask, pundits answer. WOuld have been good enough for an hour (or 45mins if you add in the weeks news and dump all the other rubbish like the soap box thing and the triathlon).
