    Knowing Bernie, it would cost the BBC more to get out of the contract than it would to stay in it...

    I hope they don't drop it, because I can see it ending up on Sky if that happens.

    Don't worry, Bernie will have the BBC Executives on a fact finding mission to Monaco and suddenly the F1 coverage will be 'an important part of BBC's sports coverage'.

    I have already made my complaint, saw this on PlanetF1. There is so many things on the BBC which I find total rubbish and many other sports like Golf which I dont know anyone who watches it.
    Surely F1 has become much more popular, I remember when it was rarely in the news.

    Surely that works both ways and there will be people saying they would rather watch sport X rather than F1 and would rather see more original programming on the BBC

    I hope this doesn't happen. It'd be a shame to have F1 coverage interrupted by adverts if it had to be moved to another network. If it went on SkySports then I'd be gutted because I don't have that package. I'd also be gutted if it was aired on Eurosport because Eurosport is utter tripe and their MotoGP commentators do my head in.

    Fingers crossed that someone sees sense.

    True but then F1 is more in the news then Golf, except that cough cough cheating issue.

    I would rather watch over 80's indoor curling myself - about as interesting - though I heard someone did overtake once :-)

    The BBC do some cool programming, but a lot is complete guff. I now no longer watch cricket as it is not on the BBC, not interested in adverts or having a dish on the side of my house. I would do away with the football based programmes in exchange for F1 any day of the week. However, I am sure I will just stop watching F1 and what little tennis there is on, my children will no longer be inspired to be sports people (they run around the house pretending to be Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton on an F1 weekend) and be inspired to be Katie Price clones instead.

    Why is watching people do sport badly, like strictly come dancing, more popular than people doing it well, like cricket, f1, rugby, cycling. I will never understand people.

    F1 cost them a lot of money to cover...

    Which lets face it, Strictly Come Dancing costs them what exactly? They probably pay the Judges/hosts/Trainers, if I remember rightly the stars go on that show get paid nout? and I am sure that it costs no where near 40Mil to have that show on. Probably wouldnt cost them that for 10 years...

    You can't base what sports the BBC shows by how much news it receives.
