Eliminated Vodafone from my shortlist of networks for a new mobile.

Wasn't sure why at first.

Think it must this.

Are you listening Acer, Vodafone, Red Bull, Hugo Boss, etc.??

TBH 75% of every race is boring. you'll still get the good 25% and 50% of the boring carp.

No race is boring even enjoyed Canada's race this year even though DC's bird watching was a bit bad, was a part of motoring history watching it after all it was the longest F1 race ever.

F1 is about the only motor racing that I am really into.

If I can't watch it on my dads Sky next year I won't bother at all.

There should be a F1 Channel after all the 2012 season is 9 months long and preseason testing in February thats 10 months they could easily fill 12 months of TV to have its own channel.

I didn't bother watching Valencia when I got in later in the day.

When F1 is leaving circuits like Turkey and staying at places like Valencia it's obvious that it's about money and marketing and not racing.

F1 can't claim to be the pinnacle of motor sport while it's ditching places like Turkey and parading around Valencia.

The BBC persons responsible for this have been summoned to appear before an MP comittee. This is due to the complete polarisation of stories from each side as to how this "deal" was brokered. The BBC are saying its up to F1 who they choose, and F1 (Bernie) is saying it was the BBC who approached him with the deal. Someone is lying....

Mind you, I dont hold up much hope of the MPs actually doing anything once they have ascertained the facts!
