BBC F1 are doing a marvellous job in their first year back as F1’s broadcasters in Britain. That much is clear on the live blogs whenever fans outside Britain get a glimpse of BBC’s work and comment on how good it is. But although it’s great to finally see some improvement in Formula 1 broadcasting, … Continue reading BBC F1 is great but motor sport coverage in Britain is getting worse
F1 is great – but it’s only on 17 times a year! On other weekends I look elsewhere to get my racing fix – whether I’m in the stands or on the sofa. Here are the races I’ll make sure to see in 2009 – what are you favourites?
