It's a shame, really, as they could do a lot with it. Maybe they should put me in charge of off-season programming. :yes:

One thing that would be nice to see (they may actually have done this but I haven't heard about it) is analysing the performance and development of each team over the season, showing key upgrades that made the biggest differences in their challenges.

I am VERY pleased that the BBC seem to be showing both Spa AND Monza live next time :thumbup:

Having a 24/7 F1 Channel was a silly idea to start with; they might as well just made room on one of the many existing Sky Sports channels!

The off season hasn't been great, there is a 'year review' on Xmas day though I believe.

As far as I'm, aware, the BBC hasn't shown anything F1 related since the Brazilian GP!

It's not called BBC F1 though.
To use my phone in the car I deleted all my German contacts, it's now Hans free.

Something that occurred to me today; on the BBC, the iPlayer shows the practice, qualifying and race (when shown live) on demand, I'm surprised that Sky don't have the same feature on Sky Go, often I am unable to watch the session live, it would be nice to catch up when I have time, but instead if I don't see it live or one of the re-runs, I'll have to miss it!

I think most people have Sky+ so are able to record it.

This year they have started televising the press conferences they are a bit strange

I suppose there is that aspect, but it would be nice to have programmes on demand as well!
