  1. Why on Earth did the BBC choose to show this race, and Monaco, which, lets face it, never produces the most exciting of results, live, and not show the Montreal GP or the new American GP. Certainly have earned their licence fee.

    tbh, without being able to see all the races live, I am starting to zone out of F1

    1. @ob1 even though monaco isn’t that good a race, the BBC know alot of people will watch it. because it’s monaco!
      they probably didn’t choose to go to montreal because the BBC are trying to save costs, and a fly away race costs more in terms of transport.
      they also didn’t choose the US GP because there was doubt as to whether it’d happen or not. the BBC have only 10 races to show so why risk choosing a race that wouldn’t happen this year?
      but still, valencia is a weird choice. maybe they had no other options left?

      1. @sato113 Well they’re obviously showing Brazil live because it’s the season finale, don’t see why they can’t do the same with the season opener (Australia) even with the keenness to reduce travel expenses.

    2. Because the BBC did not just choose the 10 they wanted, they took it in turns. Meaning there was some crap left over at the end which we have ended up with.

      1. Just like when teams picked sides for football when I was growing up, I expect Valencia was chosen last, like me!

    3. given the choice, the BBC would obviously chose the season opener the US GP, instead of Valencia. But its obvious Sky were not willing to do that. Having exclusivity is worth a lot. I am sure there were intense negotiations about which 10 GPs would BBC be able to show live.

  2. They should have shown:
    Monaco: many people watch it
    Canada: Always has good races, and won’t be shown at 10.30 pm
    Silverstone: Lots of people watch it
    Germany: Unpredictable weather: remember 2007 Europe?
    Spa: Unpredictable weather: good races result
    Monza: is a great race to watch
    Singapore: is fantastic to watch, and the prospect of a wet race is huely exciting
    Japan: is a superb track
    America: Huge interest in it, and likely to get higher viewing fugures,a s shiuldn’t be shown at 10.30
    Brazil: Weather reasons: exciting races

    1. Yeah but then they wouldn’t have shown a live race until the end of May, which would’ve probably made a lot of casual fans switch off. But I can see where you’re coming from, those are usually the better races.

  3. GP2 and GP3, cool :)

  4. its a pain when you are 1st to get the sun…
    we have to wait another 12hrs before we can watch F1 in NZ…
    23-55pm start times, but we get them all if your willing to pay SKY…
    anything later like Canada and its Monday morning 5-55am…
