Viewing figures anyone?

Following Sundays....erm....'race' and all the excited responses from people watching such an enthralling ...erm...'race' does anyone have the viewing stats for the UK over this or other seasons, and indeed anywhere else? Money talks and all that, so if viewing figures are down (surely they must be), the sponsors will be getting jittery.

What worries me is that the viewing figures may not be down.

Perhaps we have some kind of mass brainwashing taking place here.....

Worldwide figures are up, or so I've read.

Why is everyone talking like all races are like Hungary? Bloody short memories - the race previous was a corker, and therehave been several other stand-outs this year, especially Bahrain and Monaco. Figures even for Hungary may well be up, since most people would not know in advance that any one race was going to be dull.

And now we're on to Spa - all racing fans will tune in for that, surely. And who wants to miss Monza - fantastic spectacle. Or the Chinese race, which looks a promising layout. Or Suzuka. Or... you get the idea - not all circuits are like Hungary.

I'd like to add France to the list of good GP's this year... lot of overtaking there, not just Rubens taking Trulli's podium spot in the last turn...

I can't wait for Spa... Monza... and the new track, China.
I hope it rains in Spa, we've seen some great racing there in the past, especially when rain messes up qualifying too. (Like 1995... and I was there :P )

Also don't forget, Webber is a has-been because he spun and Montoya and Button were out-qualified so are past there best.

I guess some people would say they've taken to removing their rose-tinteds more often this season.......

every year we hear that viewing figures are down only to read at a later date that the're up. by about 5 per cent this year i believe. anyway what real f1 fan,regardless of who you support,would miss a race,it's like breathing.also i agree there have been some great races this season.and how can seeing and hearing those gorgoeous cars ever be boring!

To be fair, I used to think that way, schumifan, so I can hardly criticise you for feeling that way now. I'm afraid the sound of the cars just aint enough to do it for me these days...... (then again, if I was able to go to a few of the races, perhaps I'd think differently). Pracying for a wheel nut to stick in a Ferrari pit stop is really beginning to fill me with gloom and despondency......

Put it down to my age.......

So, did you not enjoy any of the races so far this year then? Perhaps you should take your rose-tinteds off so you can see the obviously very enjoyable races that we have been having. No season has ever yielded a cracking race every time - this year has had a few dull'uns of course, Hungary being the nadir.

We've had a sprectrum this year ranging from Monaco and Hockenheim at one end and Barcelona and Hungary at the other - why do you only refer to the dreary races? Are you just determined to see and describe F1 in a negative light because you don't like who is winning?

I have.

Yes and no - or no and yes. I haven't enjoyed much F1 this year, t'is true, but then I probably have too high expectations. I'm not at all determined to see and describe F1 in a -ive light - I think that right now it manages to do that all by itself.

True enough, I don't care for seeing Michael win every race, although I would find that easier to accept (applaud and enjoy) if he had some serious competition from time to time..... But I also accept that having little or no competition is hardly his fault.....

I guess what I should say is, don't mind me. If you find what is served up to you entirely palatable, indeed, at times positively tasty, that's great. But not everyone has the same tastes and just like everyone else here, I reserve the right to be picky with my food (and cantankerous......... )

The viewing figures will contine to rise as more counties, like China now have access, and theres a fair few people there.

In the USA the TV figures are smaller than a tom & Jerry cartoon, in Europe it has not grown.

F1 can still put on a good show, but to me thats all it is now, a show, there is no sprit, no heart or passion.
