Just a thread to talk about the TV coverage :P

Quote:
Former Ferrari technical director Ross Brawn says he has been unimpressed by Formula One's television coverage in Britain.

Brawn, currently on a sabbatical from Formula One, has not returned to the paddock since last year, and has instead watched the first three races of the season on television.

The Briton says he has been left frustrated by the experience, and admits he misses the amount of information he used to have available to him.



"It's definitely a new experience for me to watch it with a different perspective and also the quality of commentators on English TV," Brawn told Autosport magazine.

"I sympathise with you - it's a very frustrating business to watch F1 on British TV.

"We're used to having all the data and all the split times and we can see the race developing. What's clear when you watch it on the TV is that you don't get that information.

"Our commentators don't seem very good at conveying what is going on. It's very frustrating to watch a race and not have that information which is available to everyone at the track. So condolences for that."

Formula One in Britain is broadcast by ITV, whose line-up of commentators includes James Allen, Steve Ryder, and former Grand Prix drivers Martin Brundle and Mark Blundell.

British Tv is similar to Italian coverage I presume. For data, the closer you can get is the F1 Official live timing, which is great.

Italian TV give quite an Ok coverage, apart from being toooooooo biased in favour of you know who.

I think the commentary on Speed channel is good. I wish all the races were on Fox broadcast for the HD. Speed HD is not yet available in most places. Plus I don't like cable tv.

That depends - do you watch RAI? Personally I passed to SKY, they have a full coverage and so much more - best F1 offer I've ever seen personally. The commentators aren't the best ones around, but sometimes they have Gabriele Tarquini, Marc Genè or Giancarlo Minardi, so there is some expert comment sometimes.
