Before the race in Melbourne the drivers got together at the front of the grid for a minute silence to commemorate the lives lost in Japan.
I noticed that the Australian coverage talked all the way through it – even continuing to interview personell on the grid, which I thought was very poor form. When the interview finished, they showed a top-view of the grid and the commentator mentioned, almost embarrassingly, that they had just finished the minute silence
Did any of the other broadcasters pay attention to it and note it, or did they just talk straight through it as well?
I thought Channel 10 in Australia were being very disrespectful.
