    Adding more and more rows of tyre barriers for trucks would be the absolute worst thing you could do. One of two things would happen. Either the truck would lift off into outer space, or the whole thing would flatten itself from behind and there would be nothing left. Either way, the driver wouldn’t stand a chance.

    Absolutely amazing that the driver there escaped alive. Truck racing is one step too extreme for me, I think!

    OK, clearly I care too much about this…

    Not wishing to spoil the party, but Sky told me the F1 channel will not be available at launch to people who are subscribed to the Sky Go Monthly Ticket – I was told it will be for Sky dish subscribers only.

    So the long and short of it is, we can’t really be sure until March…

    I expect the commentary team will stay the same, providing they are happy to work under the BBC/Sky arrangement. Ted would probably stay in the pit lane, perhaps with Louise and Jake sharing presenting duties. Jake would obviously stay with the BBC as he’s their star presenter for the Olympics.

    What does Johnny Herbert do these days? Sky might try and use him as an analyst. Maybe they could get Jeff Stelling to commentate on the pit stops…

    The petition won’t work for the simple reason that none of the parties involved have done anything wrong, F1 is not a protected sport on British TV and there is no reason to involve any of the regulators.

    Whilst it is frustrating to lose the coverage we currently have, it is, unfortunately, completely above-board. Of course, I would love all my F1 on free-to-air TV, but I’d like it for my cricket too, and plenty of other things.

    I do agree with the sentiment of all these things, but there simply is no need or justification for anyone in Parliament or otherwise to interfere in what is essentially a straight commercial decision which has been brought about of the BBC’s own doing, and the BBC have to cut something…

    Clearly, they feel the F1 is better to cut than something like BBC Four, and whilst I don’t like that, within their remit as a public service broadcaster, strictly speaking, something like BBC Four fits in with their remit more than F1.

    Sorry to be such a realist, but when I remove my own personal vested interest in not wanting to pay for F1, there’s not really much else wrong with this.

    The story says he has critical injuries, but also says he might race tomorrow, which obviously would be wrong. Such a shame that some people feel the need to hack websites and put stuff up like that.

    Keith has asked people before to let him know if there are adverts that play sounds because they aren’t meant to appear – can’t say I’ve had a problem with them.

    With regards to the site itself, it’s only natural that it feels different to two years ago. The site is used by so many more people, there is so much more on the site now – it can’t be the same as it was before.

    As the site evolves, of course there will be things we like and things we don’t. That’s life. Keith can’t please everyone, nor should he try to. The live blogs is a good example – some people like it, others aren’t so keen, but there are things Keith has to consider as the owner of the site that we don’t have to. It’s not always as simple as people like to think.

    Fundamentally, F1 Fanatic is still a fantastic site – there aren’t many F1 sites of this quality on the Internet.

    All I can dig up is that a British driver led the Drivers’ Championship after each of those races.
