I personally would like to see Kashmir, by Led Zepplin.
It would take some editing to get it to build enough in the time allowed for opening titles but the suspense would be epic. Especially for the first race.1st February 2012, 18:33 at 6:33 pm #191323GeorgeDaviesF1Participant
I heard rumour (although to be honest it was probably an Alistair Griffin fan) say that Just Drive might be used. I like the song but doubt it will be used because it was recorded for the BBC2nd February 2012, 13:42 at 1:42 pm #191324Dougy_DParticipant
I don’t think there will be a “signature” tune. I think it will just be like the football music. Some generic classical piece in the background.3rd February 2012, 11:07 at 11:07 am #1913253rd February 2012, 16:03 at 4:03 pm #191326AnonymousInactive
It’s not the genre I’d associate with F1, but I still think it would fit.3rd February 2012, 17:20 at 5:20 pm #191327The Bucket Of VindalooMember
Sorry. But MCR and Metallica as Sky’s F1 intro theme would make me hit the mute button in 0.5 of a second.
This would be my choice. Truth by T-Square. It is to Japan what “The Chain” is to the UK, F1’s unofficial theme and in my opinion it’s very catchy.
21c remix I do believe.
If that remix is not to your liking then there’s this 20th anniversary mix.

never heard that T square thing but I actually quite like the idea of something weird and 80’s sounding as the theme.
Hence my choice – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8rZWw9HE7o4th February 2012, 11:25 at 11:25 am #191329JustAnF1FanaticParticipant
I think that Dance with the Devil has the right sort of build up into the rock that i can just picture a montage of f1 clips in my head haha4th February 2012, 11:27 at 11:27 am #191330JustAnF1FanaticParticipant
i also think that the chorus is somewhat appropriate5th February 2012, 1:28 at 1:28 am #191331ShaneB457Participant
Rob Dougan-Will you follow me would be good I think..like on this 2008 review..http://youtu.be/GrIE2Vg1pvo5th February 2012, 2:02 at 2:02 am #191332sibkoParticipant
I’d love sky to do something like fox did with their nascar intro and redo a song with racing lyrics.
cant see country music going down to well in the uk though, so it would have to be something a bit more rock….. 5 live’s ACDC seemed to work ok6th February 2012, 0:33 at 12:33 am #191333jonchuckleParticipant
I can’t believe no-one’s suggested George Harrison’s Faster. He’s being driven around by Jackie Stewart in the video, for heaven’s sake.6th February 2012, 2:02 at 2:02 am #191334jodrellParticipant
I know this is against the spirit of the question but I don’t see why Sky couldn’t use The Chain…after all, they’ve nicked everything else from the BBC haven’t they ;-)
Oh, and if they don’t use that how about the Knights of Cydonia by Muse?
