@infernojim: sorry for the late reply, but I thought I had better explain the system that was used to decide which races would be live on which channel. Each side got to pick three races in turn, with the BBC going first. They pretty much had to pick the three they did – Britain because it is the home Grand Prix, Brazil in case the championship battle goes down to the last race (especially if it had involved a British driver), and Monaco because of its status. Sky seized the opportunity to make the first two races exclusive to them. Personally, in the BBC’s shoes, I would have taken Australia over Monaco, but in an ideal world, they’d have both.
Here’s what I’d go for next year, though I know that it won’t happen because of the aforementioned system of picks:
6. Monaco (or New Jersey, if it goes ahead)
