    Another kick in the teeth! I have been watching F1 for many many years and I can say that over the past couple of years since the Beeb has been presenting it has been fabulous, the coverage, the information and the interviews has certainly made F1 more accessible and interesting to a wider spectrum of people, I fear that this will no longer be the case with half the season going to Sky – the reason behind it is what? Greed? cutting ones nose of to spite ones face springs to mind. I cannot and do not want to afford a sky subscription quite frankly I think the TV licence is enough considering the toot that the BBC broadcast most of the time. I would have thought with obesity on the rise the last thing anyone should be doing is encouraging people to sign up for more TV programmes ;-)

    Unbelievable watching the BBC plow millions into the olympics and moving their facilities to Manchester, yet one of the most succesful broadcasts they have they ditch early to a con job deal with Sky – who havent in turn even had the deceny to offer F1 access without the rest of Sky Sports

  3. Tim Stratton UNITED KINGDOM

    It is a discrace that we should now have to pay in order to watch F1. This act of injustice should be considered an act of absolute madness

  4. Timothy Stratton UNITED KINGDOM

    This is an outrage

  5. Oscar Cator UNITED KINGDOM

    The agreement between BBC and Sky goes beyond the denial of sport for the masses – it will kill sponsorship interest in F1 leading to its demise.

    It’s a shocking move. This sport reaches a wide demographic, male to female, families as well as, those young to old. Hence the need for it to be accessible to all. After reading the BBC report (March 2011) into the ‘The BBC’s processes for the management of sports rights’ it further adds to the irregular and baffling choice of the BBC to act out of the public and viewers interest to whom it serves and without consultation. The actions have restricted not opened access. Currently I can access F1 live and in full. Next season this would be limited to the remnants of the BBC provision inclusive of an incomplete delayed, edited season which does compare. Whose interest is being prioritised?
