    Congratulations Keith, what a great success the site is and driven by your content, ideas and stewardship! (And some other contributors too).

    It’s really something to be proud of.

    I do like the classic races and don’t really analyse the coverage too much, in my mind they seem to be doing a pretty good job.

    To be fair its not the be all end all, the race is most important and quite often only tune in about 30-15 mins before the race.

    Geoff Crammond’s Formula One Grand Prix on the Commodore Amiga!

    I like, it looks different after having the last chassis so long but good luck to them.

    Seems like they are more modern Pippa Mann was saying last night they are at last putting carbon brakes on them…couldn’t believe they were still using steel!

    Will be able to watch this on Sky when I get the new place…woop!

    As much as it would be interesting to be true I doubt Button is stig due to that old thing called a diary, not sure if you follow Button on Twitter you will see he’s a pretty busy guy!

    In terms of the race very unlikely to be stopped as not really near any population centres and not near any trouble.

    Football was stopped as football grounds/stadiums are normally in towns and cities so would have been too hard to police.

    After the earthquakes I don’t the NZ has the money to host a GP or would want to spend the money on it for now.

    And yes I hear Harvs on the All Blacks, sometimes the UK can be the same about sports and Royal Wedding as if nothing else is happening in anyone elses life! “The Whole World Is Watching” is one of the most over-used statements ever!

    Seems reasonable name to me?! Whats in a name anyway, the other manufacturers are only other people’s surnames which is rarely done anymore, and Cosworth is just a mash up of two names. If they get the result we will forget the name anyway.

    I am always pleased to see more competition in the sport, the more the better I say as long as it is serious competition. Cosworth to me have come in and fully expected to be last best and are happy with it for some reason, its almost like a glamour project which is a shame.

    Still there is hope yet!

    Hello all,

    I don’t want to upset anyone but this is really just noise, I have seen 3 petitions already so far to the government when really you are looking at the wrong people. The government would not now be able to retrospectivley create events that are “protected” and even then would likely on be the British GP for obvious reasons.

    If you want to petition anyone it would be Bernie Ecclestone, he took the bids and arranged the deal, Sky aren’t even in the wrong, they put in a bid and it was accepted.

    I am in the very fortunate position of being able to afford the coverage but even then like now I am unlikely to watch much of the build up. I don’t on other sports either, to me there is only so much you can talk about in hindsight.

    I do agree with many that its a massive shame to cut the coverage of F1 for savign money when there are other programs with much lower viewing figures that seem to survive, much of the programming on BBC3 is of such a low quality I am suprised sometimes that the channel is still going. It would have been far more sensible to cut the budget of the coverage and not the coverage itself.

    Maybe not full split-screen but a pop-out of some other action would be useful. For example without sound yesterday (at neices party) I did not see Mark Webber enter the pits, would have been nice to show it and would be useful for others to see.

    I agree though, its mostly OK but then everyone has a different view on who they want to see.

    Nah they will stick it out, any publicity is good publicity and likely Mark will leave at the end of the season.

    Yeah could be but more errors seem to be happening, Red Bull and McLaren and not just British GP either.

    I really don’t have an issue with it, but as with most sports I find the programme too long so I watch about half-hour before and then just after presentations. But I do often watch the different practices when time permits around work etc.

    Not sure on F1 Forum I find it over analyses stuff and I have moved on by then. but then football is the same.

    No issues with dress sense, they can where what they like as far as I am concerned.

    Thanks BasCB, always good to widen the net a little further!

    Wonder if anyone else is out there on LinkedIn?
