Really? I thought he was a laugh. Pity he wasnít commentating on last seasons F1, it might of made it slightly more interesting. I reckon there is a fair chance DC and Brundle could be the com team in this new F1 channel.

He is very excitable even when nothing much is going on. Not sure whether that's because he's having to translate into what is pretty good English, in his head before he says it, or whether he is equally excitable when doing the F1 coverage for Sky Italia

Brundle had his shot at being the main commentator and back out to the second seat again. I believe that he's also in "golden handcuffs" with Sky. I could perhaps see DC join Sky once the Channel 4 contract expires, as one of their rotating group of former drivers and champions.

You would imagine that over time it will impact on their TV rights revenues as no TV company is going to pay top dollar for F1 when they are showing it themselves. so I suppose it will end up with an equation, but of course Liberty will ultimately be able to cut TV companies out of the loop and then not be reliant on them deciding not to buy TV rights in the future.

I wonder what Liberty Mediaís long term plans are for their F1 channel. Could they throw other race series into the channel and make it the goto place for motor sport. As far as iam aware, Liberty Media own the television rights to Formula E. They could drop that into their channel package. Instead of the two series becoming rivals in the future, put them together in the same media package. As we all know, one of the main problems with motor sport is itís used to sell contracts for networks. In an ideal world all motorsport should be available in one place.

It is a conundrum for Liberty because Mr E sold the UK broadcasting rights to Sky before Liberty bought FOM, and on a contract that lasts through 2024. They are now in the position that their own cable company in the UK, Virgin Media, has to pay Sky for access to a product that their parent company actually owns, and, if things haven't changed in the last few years, they also produce at each circuit (the production facilities built into transportable containers were called Baker's Village, named after the guy who ran the production team on behalf of FOM).

And, after this year, Sky has the sole broadcasting right for live action over the weekends, apart from Silverstone which will have to be made available for a FTA broadcaster if one wants to pay for the concession.

i think it's just who he is. it's awesome, all these dry boring commentators who are too hellbent on seeing what we can see already. a good bit of excitement is exactly whats needed, and he knows his stuff too.

Itís the guys passion that is such a pleasure to listen to and at the same time can educate the viewer in an entertaining way. Another commentator that springs to mind is ex driver now nascar commentator Darrell Waltrip. Great informative commentator and comes off with some crackers. Last weekend he said when driving, there was weekends that he was on it from start to finish and other weekends he was so lost that google couldnít find him!!! He also calls four new tyres as 4 Mr feelgoods.

Agree re Waltrip. I dont watch NASCAR but I knew of Waltrip and found his angle on the Bathurst 1000 brilliant. Here is his in car commentary lap and post lap interview. Gold. Im sure it worked in the US where they may not have known the Bathurst race that well.

A shining example of Darrell Waltrip at his best. That was absolutely brilliant to watch and listen. What an event, what a race and what a race series. Superb. 👌

according to this site, looks like SKY has responded to the F1 TV service with a price drop.

https://www.racefans.net/2018/03/02/...hannel-stream/

this site also has a list of the 40 countries where the new service will be available on launch.

https://www.racefans.net/2018/02/28/...ble-confirmed/

sadly Canada is not on the list.

The article is somewhat disingenuous in that it doesn't give the whole picture.

Sky actually dropped (considerably) the cost for purchasing the F1 Channel if you also had the basic TV package. It is £22.00 per month for the basic plus £18.00 for the F1, although that is for a minimum 12 month contract.

It's still a lot of money, but if you are a Sky subscriber (and there are a few million of them in the UK), then you don't need to purchase a Now TV gadget for however much.

I remember a lot of years ago a service provided by Sky called F1 Digital + It provided the various feeds including on track onboard (all cars) replay channel and time screen. What was brilliant about this was when I watched the replay of qualifying or race, I still had access to all the interactive feeds. I wonder will this new service provide the same because like many of you, dew to time zones or family or work commitments I rarely watch the F1 races live. Thatís providing we get this new service in the UK.
