Inside F1 - BBC News Channel

Just noticed this:-



For the first time Inside F1 will come from the circuit at every round of the championship with news, interviews and expert opinion produced by the BBC team on location and presented by Lee McKenzie.


You can see the show on Friday and Saturday of each race weekend from 1845 GMT on the BBC News channel and on the BBC Sport website.

I've tried to watch the Sky HD F1 channel but got off to a bad start with 2 presenters holding ridiculous microphones in front of a huge iPad.

Just watched DC & Jake with no Eddie (well it is St Pats day) and no Brundle as far as I could tell. Then an Aussie with DC commenting and I was gone.

I must really be a grumpy old man as I liked it just the way it was.

Indeed.

A political decision by the BBC to be seen to be spending less, whilst they still have all the people out there (including camera crews for the walkabout shots).

I sincerely hope they ( and all the other media coverage ) will ignore this .............

Just watched the BBc2 "high"lights! I thought it would be a cut down show with full quali sessions, I was wrong. I didn't like it.
Thanks to no Sponsor I might get up in the morning to watch the race!

Unfortunately we in Australia get the Sky commentary.
I say unfortunately because the bloke who is partnering Martin Brundle (? David Croft) thinks breathless motor mouth yelling implies passion, but for me it makes me mute the commentary - unfortunate as Martin Brundle is worth listening to.

Some things are worth getting up early for. More of the same next week please.
Streaming greatly improved 2nd half of the race too.

Well done, Jenson, a perfect race.

Kinda makes ya wonder about all those team bosses who were saying McLaren would pay for not having the same stepped nose design of others.




And well done, Lewis, for getting through a race without hitting someone.........

Watched the race on Catalan TV with the sound turned off and BBC-5 on the satellite box feeding the hifi with the English language commentary. So that's the way it's going to be this year.

Brilliant drive from Jenson, much enjoyed. Pity Hamilton couldn't find a smile at the end.....

Indeed, he was like a petulant child. His body language on the podium said everything about his mood.

He needs the back of his legs slapped.

Great drive from Button, and overall a decent result for McLaren, but RBR looked ominous.

I'm off to KL Friday and will wave to you from the back straight grandstands.

Yes, if that was David Croft impersonating Murray Walker, it was a massive fail! This'll be a hard season to listen to. I'm gonna miss Brundle & DC now.

And rumour has it that that may have been the last Melbourne race, so no need for Europe to set their alarms so early to watch a race. Poor things, Bernie really does care bout you lot!

Great race by Jenson - and great effort by Vettel.

Lewis was an also-ran.

Webber (and Alonso) brought up the rear.

The safety car bunched-up the field.

Sorry BUT "Lewis was an also-ran." Carp he stayed out of trouble and kept in the points, something he had problems with last year. Think his "attitude" came from his radio call about shot tyres [rears] and was given no help from "his" team.

Personally, I am really sorry that the BBC have seen fit to get rid of a large part of the F1 action. I far preferred their take on it although Martin Brundle is a good catch for Sky.

Very good race Jenson and well done. Sebastian seems to have been very lucky with the safety car but that is little excuse for the poor show of petulance from Lewis. Grow up lad!
