Re: F1 2012 thread

Sky can rot in hell, and most (75%+) of F1 diehards would agree with me on that. They have already fucked up the intro and half of the Sky crew are a bunch of bloody idiots and are even worse than EJ. He was just pretending to be like that on the BBC.

Brundle: Very Good idea.
Croft: Good idea
Davidson: Good idea.
Kravitz: Good idea.
Rider: Brit arse kisser.
Hill: Brit arse kisser, boring and has a major chip on his shoulder with Schumacher.
Thompson: Stupid blond, typical Sky.
Pinkham: Another bimbo reading off a script.
Lazenby: WHO????? A rugby presenter.....

Re: F1 2012 thread

worst case (for me anyways) is i believe the speed channel replays them, just like foxsports replays the cricket from channel 9 the next day. streaming would be horrendous.

Re: F1 2012 thread

Do you reckon the races would be uploaded on here ? or would nobody bother.

a 1 hour highlight show on bbc on a sunday night isn't gunna cut it for me.

Tho i imagine the viewing figures will be huge.

Sky will take it to a new level like they have with most sports. They make things bigger & better. Yeah they can't please everyone but a whole channel dedicated to F1 can only be a good thing. The sport will get more exposure because of it and it'll put more money into F1.

The only down side is that it's on not on free TV and not everyone can get it. With that said BBC still has plenty of races.

The thing is nige SKY cant take it to a new level, the FIA have always had their own camera's over the circuits unlike other sports that Sky "improved" so this improvement people keep saying will happen will infact, be very very small if anything at all.

Yeah the F1 channel sounds great but sooner or later when it starts to get boring it will become the next Top gear while running out of decent material.

Plenty of races? Have you seen what the BBC got out of this deal, about 60% of them are the REAL shit races.

China: zzzzzzzzzzzz (Sorry apart from last season this circuit is crap 9 times out of 10)
Barcelona: Boring!
Valencia: Super zzzzzzzzzz (Now being predicted to be dropped this season) leaving BBC with 9...
Monaco: Thank god the first decent one!
British GP: YES!
Spa: Wicked
Singapore: Boring!
Korea: Boring!
Abu Dhabi: Always Shit.
Brazil: Another good circuit.

So 4/10 are actually decent, Spa, Brazil, Monaco and Silverstone. The rest arn't races, that's called torture against the basic human rights.

No Japan, No Monza, No Hungary, NO CANADA!, No Hockenheim and No First GP of the season....

All the BBC get is stinking Tilkdromes that deserve to be shot if they were living.


For once after the Schumi era, British intrest in F1 hit a 10 year high even with RBR winning 2 years straight with Seb, but still the BBC improved it far beyond what ITV ever did in the Lewis hype era. It's all because of the shitty 2012 Olympics, so they took the axe to the only profitable YES PROFITABLE!!!! sport going on the BBC, football was negative, tennis was negative, snooker negative, darts was negative, they mostly were apart from F1. They could of axed BBC four ffs, but no they wanted to piss off around 7-8 million, ((on average, peak numbers like China and Canada would be 10-11 million)) F1 fans instead because the board is run by a bunch on Wimbledon dickheads that would rather support some overhyped Scot in tennis, rather than supporting 2 British (((World Champions))) that the world are jealous of.

That's what I think of this "improvement" personally

I hope Ofcom arserape BskB and everybody linked with News International and shut the fuckers down for corruption on the highest degree and it looks like it will happen sooner than later.
