Sometimes it seems kind of unfair the difference on treatment the media gives on the coverage of F1 and all other motorsports. Ok, F1 is supposed to be the pinnacle, etc, etc, I accept they have more coverage, preference and so on. But the difference is just to big. Race, Build up, Post-Race Commentary, Press Conference, Podium, Qualifyng (also with Build up and post commentary) and even Free Practices are not hard to find. If that’s not enough, BBC still has the F1 Forum on the Red Button. Some hours after a GP, one can find 2 or 3 torrents that download in a couple of hours.
To watch the Imola 6h one has to rely on a live stream by Audi TV, which of course has no obligation whatsoever of impartiality (even though, today’s coverage seemed more impartial than sometimes BBC F1 coverage). Any generalist or sport newspaper in the world has always one page dedicated to F1 throughout the GP weekends, whilst most of them doesn’t give a short column to show the 24h Le Mans race results.
Of course they say they give the public what the public want, but that’s a bit like the story of who come up first, the chicken or the egg..
