C4 coverage while still good seems to have lost its edge due to sky deal. I notice that they were using F1 feed for the pen and not sky's offering. It must grate with the C4 presenters to have to tell us about sky's live coverage as well.

I've had a combo of ESPN, who just take the sky feed (official F1 feed), and the f1tv coverage recently.

The later is very good. Apparently there were massive problems in Baku and I got a refund. Although I didn't notice any problems.

Today I was at home so had the telly on and laptop/tablet to watch the timign screen and in-car. Hey modern world, not bad. I don't mind paying a little when I can watch anywhere, enhance the watching and access loads of old races. It's $4-5 a race with the season pass.

I feel the same. Almost as if they're playing with it now. That said the interviews with Toto and the Ferrari chief were good and the new McLaren bloke was interesting.

I was up at 5 AM this morning in order to watch my recording of the C4 race highlights before coming to work, and felt that the programme appeared quite good. Sometimes Steve Jones comes across as a bit blokey/jokey at times, but agree that the Toto and new McLaren guy (sorry, I can't remember his name) interviews were very good.

I was listening to the race on catch up from Five Live in the van on the way home from work on Sunday evening. When live they only ran one hour of the race and then carried on over on the web site because they were covering some bladder kickers.

I searched the web site but couldn't find a catch up there for the second half of the race. The Bat & Ball Club still has no real commitment to motor racing. Or was I just incompetent and couldn't find it?

The BBC still has no commitment to motor racing? Apart from originally getting the coverage of F1 to the point where not only every race, but every qualifying is live! It may have waned since, or at least the cost became higher than what they could justify.

They still push it at every possible opportunity on 5 live, probably because that costs them a few million aswell as the races are live on there.

But current F1 on radio is even more dull than it is watching live or on telly.

it simply is not a sport most sane people will watch at the moment, most other sports are significantly better. And I count every sport in that, let alone the fact most motorsports are better too.

They do have Formula E on the iPlayer. Vernon Kay is awful on the coverage though - anyone that thinks Steve Jones doesn't add anything to the Channel 4 coverage should take a look at the Formula E coverage - that's the best advert for what he brings to Channel 4. The difference is night and day.

The average age difference in the audience between the two is massive though. F1 is late 50's whereas FE has massive growth in the 13 to 17 age group.

I find both good at what they do. I'm not interested in a front man with good technical knowledge. I want him to bring out the character of the drivers and experts which both do well IMO with their respective audiences.

Wow. Do you have a source for the average age thing? (I don’t disput it, but would like to look into it more).

That is great for FE.

Interesting - I'd have said that Jones blows Kay into the weeds - he just seems more on top of what's going on around him and in control of the situation, Vernon seems to always be several steps behind what's going on and trying frantically to catch up.

I'm the opposite. I do enjoy FE, but I find the coverage pretty poor. I much prefer a more technical look at things. Kay is fine, but he looks like he's putting on an act and isn't that interesting really. He's not really a motorsport guy is what I take away from it.

I much prefer the more in-depth look at things.
