    I bet Jenson Button is massively regretting not going to the Mugello test. The tyre experience he could have gained there seems to be costing him dearly now.

    Whilst I prefer the Sky commentary team, as I am using only SkyGo, I will watch the BBC’s live races so I can watch in HD!

    Having watched all of Skys coverage this morning and only 7 minutes of the BBCs highlights so far…Sky have a lot of work to do…but let’s give them time.

    I think a good shake up of the team is required and luckily Luca Di Montezemolo won’t hesitate to do it. There just seems to be no innovation from Ferrari. Whilst other teams are coming up with ground breaking ideas, Ferrari just seem to tag along and rely on a late season push.

    The only Sky option I can use is Sky Go (monthly ticket).

    Sky’s ads are misleading – the race control features are not available if you subscribe via the Sky Go monthly ticket. So for £35 a month I’m getting a vastly delayed stream, no extra features, and if I want to watch other Sky channels (generally I don’t) I don’t get the range that’s available if I had a Sky+HD TV package (for less money).

    Totally agree here. I can’t believe Sky aren’t offering the Race Control features to SkyGo monthly ticket customers. My circumstances don’t allow me to have SkyTV so the monthly ticket is the next best thing. Even though we have to pay £35 for the service, it seems minimal at best.

    As for the coverage; Martin Brundle was the main reason I made the switch to sky but I agree with the general consensus re the rest of the team. I find Simon totally one dimensional and corporate. Damon will get better with time and offers a good insight. Georgie’s role is a waste of time really. I would have Ant in the main show along with Damon rather than fannying around on the sky pad. LOVE the Brundle/Croft commentary partnership and not really got an opinion on Natalie’s reporting. Ted a breath of fresh air as usual.
