    Re: F1 coverage in the UK moves to Sky Sports

    Where is Eddie Jordan?

    He missed qualification in Melbourne and the whole weekend in Malaysia. So far, he has only been there for race day in Melbourne.

    Sky's coverage was much the same IMO as it was for Melbourne. Did you hear the tiny fight that erupted between Croft and Kravitz over whether this was Sauber's best result? BMW Sauber won a race with Kubica. Croft claimed that was not a Sauber win but a BMW win whereas Kravitz viewed that as a BMW and Sauber win. It was a trivial point but it escalated live on air.

    I enjoyed the BBC coverage very much but the F1 Forum is now fake. It was pre-recorded so it wasn't really an interactive forum where live tweets and emails were put to the interviewees. It's effectively continued recorded coverage.

    The BBC's Ben Edwards is still hard to listen to. He shouts and screams his commentary and makes some really strange sounds. Not as bad as Jonathan Legard but it's close IMO. I prefer Sky's David Croft much more to him.

    I watched the F1 Legends programme ... Jackie Stewart and Jody Sheckter so far. I missed the ones about Nigel Mansell and Emerson Fittipaldi. I will catch up with those on Tue and Wed. Very interesting interviews IMO.

    Sorry for going OT - but just noticed, in DC's signature, that he's selling his Cayman S..!!

    DC - please let us in on it.  Open a new thread and tell us why you're selling and what replacement you're planning ....

    Re: F1 coverage in the UK moves to Sky Sports

    So far, I've watched the F1 Legends interviews (the 30 mins versions) with Sir Jackie Stewart, Nigel Mansell, Jody Sheckter and Emerson Fittipaldi. This weekend, I am hoping to watch the interview with Mario Andretti.

    It's been a nice series of interviews so far IMO ...

    Re: F1 coverage in the UK moves to Sky Sports

    The SPEED channel had carried US F1 coverage for many years (with Will Buxton, Steve Matchett, Bob Varsha (Actually BBC guys, right?)). Next year it is moving to NBC. A few races will actually be on NBC and the rest of the coverage on NBC Sports Network. However, I am happy to see that they plan to broadcast every practice, qualifying, and race session!!  (SPEED was a little light on the practice sessions) 


    Re: F1 coverage in the UK moves to Sky Sports

    Another year following F1 ...

    The BBC's coverage is so so with obvious flaws and some good aspects.

    Suzy Perry is just dreadful as Jake Humphrey's replacement. She has yet to make an insightful comment. Coulthard and Jordan continue to be excellent but Jordan doesn't appear on race weekends which don't have live coverage from the BBC. I really like the technical analysis from Gary Anderson. Commentary is still the weakness with the unbearable Ben Edwards. The F1 Forum used to be more casual chat but now it's just extended coverage allowing the BBC to move regular broadcasting away from F1 earlier. Most of all, there just isn't the same chemistry anymore with Suzy Perry being there.

    By contrast, Sky Sports F1 is now much improved. Excellent chemistry between the whole team. You can actually tell they enjoy working together. Lazenby is the weak link IMO. I'm glad Georgie Thompson left. Natalie Pinkham is doing a good job. Brundle needs to start his grid walks earlier. Not enough on grid interviews IMO. The music and entertainment segments are now vastly better and are now better than on the BBC. Croft offers good listenable commentary with insight from Brundle. In the Paddock, Herbert and Hill offer good insights. Great analysis from Davidson and Chandok. The star is Ted Kravitz. His Notebook shows are required viewing ... Sky Sports F1 coverage has moved up so many notches it has really left the BBC far behind.

    I watch the Drivers' Press Conference, the interviews on Gear Up For ...., Practice 1 & 2, Team Principals' Press Conference, F1 Show, Practice 3, Qualification, Ted's Qualification Notebook, Track Parade, Race, Paddock Live, Ted's Race Notebook, F1 Midweek Review (even though Anna Woolhouse is unbearable).
