BBC selling Formula 1 - BBC Sport ????

I read the BBC are selling the remainder of their F1 Contract to the Channel 4.

Out National 'Pride' ??

No Cricket - No live Football (other than FA Cup) - No Horse Racing (not bothered myself) No Formula 1 !!

Fair enough we get Rugby, our third national sport and a bit of Athletics on the BBC.

I feel sorry for those Pensioners who like their sport but can't afford £60 plus a month to be entertained in their senior years if they haven't good health (and who either can't afford or have the tech knowledge to have internet).

I'm in a challenging mood today !!

So Richard how do you think C4 did? My only gripe was the loud clangin music between segments but apart from that whoopee DC is on board and nice to see Mark Webber )t' The intervals didn't matter as it was highlights, promised no ads in live races thank goodness. What a race, apart from the nasty accident, cannot believe Alonso was not injured testiment to safety I suppose, I love the fact Sainz and Verstappen fighting like mad for points in the first race. Lets hope all the following races are as good.
