Okay, first of all, this is not a thread for discussing the Sky-BBC deal. We have discussions on the main site for that.
No, in this thread, you’re taking on the role of a fan who has been approached by the BBC executives. They want to know which ten races of the 2012 championship should be broadcast, and they want you to decide which ones. Bernie Ecclestone’s proposed calendar has been released, showing twenty races (Turkey has been dropped), with a few – most notably India, Korea, America and Bahrain – being moved around. You can see the full calendar here:
So, which ten races should the BBC broadcast? We already know that Monaco, Silverstone and the season finale – Interlagos – will be shown (but you can advise the BBC to drop these if you wish).
Please note that any answers along the lines of “The BBC should show all twenty races” will be interpreted as “We want to see ten races at Valencia!”. Like I said, this is not a thread for discussing the decision to split the broadcast – it’s to separate out the ten best races from the championship, the ones with the msot intrinsic value.
