    Default F1 returns to the BBC - YAY!

    Some great news for UK F1 Fans ...

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/moto...ne/7306123.stm

    No more adverts ... no more missing the racing ... or the end of the race like one year
    Lets just hope they bring back the Fleetwood mac guitar rift too


    The only thing I'd like to remain from the ITV show is Martin Brundle
    I'd rather be topless !

    Oh man thank you very much !! I hate ITV's coverage, there's so many damn adverts that you lose interest in the race and start to wander to other channels or things. I do hope they get a decent commentator though, that exciteable guy from Robot Wars/five would be ideal, he would bring a sense of excitement to watching the race.

    Also get rid of the muppet who walks around the paddock and grid at the start of the race, he's a pompous git imo.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Exactly ... should be good coverage ... no adverts ... also sounds like it'll be on BBC TV, BBC Radio (I'm guessing Five Live) and Streamed over the web (I'm guessing via iplayer) all at the same time

    I hope the TV is on BBCHD

    He lives near me and has a garage near me I don't mind F1 on ITV, I have never known in on IT/v, so I can't really comment, but I do know that no more adverts can be good

    and I agree Hybrid with the commentator from robot wars -

    Do you mean?

    Craig Chalres


    or

    Jonathon Pearce

    There are 5 lots of adverts during the race there should be no more. I always find myself counting them so I can send them my pre-typed letter of complaint if there are more than 5. This is how much I hate the ads, just as someone is going to overtake lets go to the ads.

    Best news of the day.

    No Nodz ... the Beeb have it from the 2009 season ... sounds like Bernie had a get-out clause with his current contract with ITV

    I hope the main presenter is either one of the existing Good BBC sport presenters ... or someone who is known to be into F1

    swiping Brundle from ITV wouldn't be a bad idea

    GOOD NEWS .


    No more ads YAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    I also get the feeling that pretty much all of the ITV crew will jump over to BBC. I'll be happy if James Allen doesn't he annoys me (that guy loves Lewis tooo much !)

    dunno how much truth there is in this story, but from the front cover of the guardian newspaper mentioned that maybe richard hammond might commentate F1 next season

    No I really like Hammond, but if he commentated F1 I think it would spoil it abit imo. As much as he's funny, just my inital impressions of him commentating aren't great I think he'd either try and be funny, which I don't think would suit the race, or if he was serious, it wouldn't seem right for his character ...

    Just my 2 cent.

    I heard Murray Walker would consider coming out of retirement .


    That would be class, I mean he was the voice of F1 like 10 years ago so if he came back that would be a huge plus for the BBC coverage.
