I think it’s fantastic news, but I don’t think it’s going to be enough to convince people who don’t want to subscribe.
Although you would be paying for 50 races instead of 10.
It does look rather like a bubble that will burst
Proabably quite spectacularly. Is Danny Bahar behind it all?
The fact they also lost their lead driver to another team
Maybe Plato already knew they were leaving and was told he could discuss options with other teams?
Had my ticket for Copse B booked since about August I think. Not the best position but it was cheap and it’s a christmas present from the wife.
Can’t wait. First ever GP for me :) See you there @Spud ;)

According to PitPass, Sky have signed a deal with Ted Kravitz as pit lane reporter, Brundle/Crofty to be commentators whilst DC and (thankfully) Jordan stay at the BBC. They also think it’s between Georgie Thompson or Simon Lazenby (currently presents Sky’s ruby coverage) for the program host with Mansell as a pundit. Of course it’s all just rumour at the moment, but it doesn’t sound *too* bad at the moment.

Gravel traps don’t exist on more modern tracks precisely because tar-mac is safer. If a driver goes sideways into a gravel trap and the wheels dig in, the car could flip and injure the driver. tar-mac run-off areas negate this risk.

I missed silverstone this year except for the final 7 laps.
