Sky have now announced a dedicated F1 channel from next season. Sky Sports f1hd. Supposed to have a tonne of interactive options aswell.

Have also said they will show the races without advert breaks.

Am looking forward to seeing what they do but will miss the beeb coverage.

Good of Vettel to fake a gearbox problem yesterday so Webber could have a turn at winning.

The Sky coverage is probably going to end up just being the same as BBC anyway, giving they've already got Brundle and members of the BBC production crew signed up.

Someone needs to hire Rowan Atkinson as an F1 presenter. He'd be superb.

Why would he bother doing that though? If he was instructed to gift Webber a win, surely pulling over on the run up the hill would have made the point much more clearly. 2 years ago, I'd have agreed with you, but not these days.

If his gearbox really was that bad, why didn't he just park it indeed?

His lap times after Webber got past him certainly didn't tail off, and he comfortably held on to second place. Hardly indicative of a car that was holding Webber up on the track.

I see Bernie's been opening his gob again. Apparently Europe is no longer F1's spiritual home, despite it being where all the teams are based. He sees western Europe having maybe only five races in future calendars, replaced by the likes of South Africa, Russia and Mexico.

So look forward to more races with no fans in the stands on identikit Tilke tracks full of sweeping corners, long straights and perpetual boredom.
