    Interesting… although the charts hardly mean anything these days

    (I’m assuming this got into the charts off the back of being played on the F1 coverage, if it was just released this week than that’s no big deal)

    I read that the song was written for the F1 Outro?

    Song was written specifically for the BBC outro yeah.

    “There is a star that lights the road

    Will it take me to the end well I donít know

    For one last time

    Iíll take this ride

    And just drive

    I wanna be the only one to make it to the light

    Take it to the edge where I have died a thousand times

    And maybe I could be the one to ride in to the setting sun tonight

    And just drive

    Breathing out I breath it in

    Broken down but I will live to fight again

    For one last time

    Iíll take this ride

    And just drive

    I wanna be the only one to make it to the light

    Take it to the edge where I have died a thousand times

    And maybe I could be the one to ride in to the setting sun tonight

    Just drive

    There is a star that lights the road

    Will it take me to the end well I donít know

    I wanna be the only one to make it to the light

    Take it to the edge where I have died a thousand times

    And maybe I could be the one to ride in to the setting sun tonight

    Just drive”

    Works well with Abu Dhabi – setting sun tonight :)

    he sounds identical to Gary Barlow from Take That. For those that are interested on his website you can download a copy of the song for free if you sign up to the newsletter

    Typical BBC getting someone to write a song for them. They really do treat F1 like a work of art sometimes. It’s a sport man for Gods sake!

    It was an awful song. They should’ve played some Def Leppard at the end.

    I don’t know about Def Leppard, but it was certainly a massive anti-climax. Probably the worst part of the BBC’s coverage all year.

    @sw I thought it was Take That!

    I wish the song had been a bit more chirpy. We’d had the best season in years (possibly ever) and it was such a depressing tune.

    Def Leppard would have made it. Best thing about the last year of ITV coverage was ‘Rocket’ being played every time it went to an advert.

    I quite like the song though, but it is a little downbeat for such an exciting season.

    almost shed a tear during the outro.. something about credits after the whole season seems to mean something.. the final channel 10 V8 video springs to mind; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9HbZ2sss1k&feature=related

    but i agree, the song could have been used at a better time.. say if we were saying goodbye to driver’s or commentators, or just goodbye in general.

    but to sum up an awesome season they really needed an upbeat song, and def leppard probably would have done that.

    i still reckon the F1.com spa race recap with Pendulum-Witchcraft is possibly the best F1 music/promo i’ve seen

    I thought it really worked for the end credits. Upbeat is great after a good weekend but this was for the end of the season, so it was saying goodbye, not to a person but to a fantastic year of f1.

    I love upbeat music, but you can’t end with it

    I don’t think anything will beat last year’s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Pfc7ZubfF4

    Except maybe the 1998 one using The Cardigans: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjSvIpvweQ8
