    And Sky have annoiunced their team...mainly nicked from the BBC....
    Brundle we knew, Crofty hsa also been confirmed, along with Ted K and Natalie Pinkham and Ant Davidson (from 5Live commentary).

    All we know about the BBC are Jake, DC, Eddie and Lee are staying...with Lee taking over duties when Jake is doing Olympics. No BBC lead commentator annouced yet..hope it is not LegEnd Legard..hope it is Ben Edwards.

    If there is enough interest, I have a site for a fantasy f1 league. Pick 2 main drivers and a test, engines, chassis, tyres etc and get the best results from your budget. It needs a few people to make it interesting.....so if there is enugh interest I shall set it up closer to March...

    Right here.
    is it right that SKY will have a dedicated F1 channel and subscription? I hope so as I don't want to pay for Sky Sports since all I want to see if F1?

    Thanks Satty

    Yes Sky will have a dedicated F1 channel.
    All sessions live.
    With various programming and i am sure plenty of repeats between races.

    You will get the Sky Sports F1 channel if you subscribe to the Sky Sports package, or if you subscribe to the HD package.
    If you dont have Sports or HD then you will not get it - and will just have to watch those 10 non BBC races on Spanish telly.

    BBC will cover China, Spain, Monaco, Valencia, Britain, Belgium, Singapore, Korea, Abu Dhabi and Brazil all live. Others wil have extrended highlights late afternoon / early evening

    Nope. No PPV per race thing expected.....maybe they may do a free teaser a few times....maybe onthe first weekend in MArch....who knows...

    However, have a luck at this very lucky driver, who just basically drives under a crashing car, which could have been very bad indeed..

    I can't say I'm fussed tbh I've always thought the Spanish circuits have always been among the most boring in Europe, especially that HORRIBLE one in Valencia.

    I think this is going to haunt Lewis for a long long time :lol:

    .

    Just more proof that he is a bit of a twat!

    Kubica has reinjured his leg last week, and is unlikely to be in F1 ever again!!
    And Lotus have a new active suspesion system for controling ride height under breaking, that is legal, and the Prancign Horse also have it in development.....

    The new 2012 F1 season is abut 50 days away.
    If there s enough interest, I can set up a "Fantasy" league, using an external sit.
    You select drivers, engines, chassis, manager, tyres, and guess qualy posiitions and race times for points.
    The site used is: www.pff1.net

    It needs a few people users to be worth while so this post is to guage interest.
    It dont take that much of your time, a few minutes prior to the date base closing a few hours befor qualy is all thats needed.
