  1. Look on the bright side. They have Abu Dhabi and that’s double points, so really it’s 10 races…..

    With the BBC not running every race in full (even delayed) I significantly watched less F1 this year. That’s by my choice, not because they showed less. It was just too odd trying to get into race highlights. The races with little overtaking had no suspense and those with plenty got too confusing to follow who was were. I didn’t even watch the last 3 races, live or not. Not even the highlights, as my interest of on and off live races had sapped my enthusiasm. I haven’t done that for years.

    But now with the crazy double points rule and less than 50% of races in full for me to watch, I may start to miss some during the main season too.

  2. No Brazil or Monaco on the BBC! What a joke. I am not paying for a subscription though, will watch Moto GP on BT sport I got for free from my broadband subscription. Better racing, no BS!

  3. Apparently in Australia Ten have signed V8 deal from 2015 alongside MotoGP and F1. The V8 deal is a sad day for motorsport as it will be like BBC/Sky TV deal. James Warburton the CEO isn’t revealing anything till the 2015 V8 calendar has been announced. All I know is that MotoGP runs out at the end of next season while Formula 1 runs out after the 2015 season and no other broadcast wants either of them. Ten is the ‘home of motorsport’ in Australia.

  4. I’m concerned less about what races are going to be live etc. but more corcerned if the BBC are going to keep Suzy Perry as the main presenter. She’s absolutely hopeless and that’s being kind. What’s unforgivable, is that she actually got worse as the season went on. It got so bad, that I had to stick her on mute everytime she was talking during a live broadcast and deliberately used to watch the highlights delayed by twenty mins, just so I could fast forward through the her bits. It’s excruciating seeing her struggle so out of her depth.

    1. Yeah man she isnt great I agree with that. But she is no worse than David “monotone” Coulthard.

    2. Christian Horner always seems to find Suzi Perry interesting ;-)

      She could talk to me about the water in wallpaper paste evaporating as the paper sticks to the wall, and would have my undivided attention :-)

  5. I don’t think its fair to F1 fans who can’t afford sky etc..the programme used to be great on BBC when they showed all F1 races. they show full coverage of other sports so why not F1

  6. As a child neither of my parents were f1 fans but I was able to find f1 on TV (free to air) and watch it. If it ends up all pay per view how will the next generation find the sport unless a parent is paying?
