F2 Baku weekend

Oh dearis this series getting less popular?

On the basis of the first few rounds which haven't provided much of noteworthines the majority of the field this year is made up of well backed journeymen with a very small clutch of interestimg newcomers.

Aitken seems to have found his feet at last.

I dont know man, i lost some interest in the series with this new car, it sounds horrendous, looks horrendous and the tyres mean drivers are spending the race just cruising round rather than pushing. Not to mention DRS

However one thing ive realised, the older i get the less and less invested i am in motorsport. On one hand i feel sad because through my teen and early adult years id invest every weekend during the season watching whatever i could, getting up at all times, staying up to all times. Now? Now i dont care so much if i miss a race, maybe im just miserable.

i'm always working when it's on (and couldn't afford or justify paying for sky's coverage anyway), and can't be arsed to chase up a decent torrent.

shame isn't it, in a world where itv are making btcc and the support series accessible, f1 continues to push itself and its support series further away from joe average.

Well thatís understandable, although Iím sure Sky do a good job.

BTCC give fans what they want by putting it and the support races on a freeview channel, while F1 and others arenít accessible enough

What is understandable about F1 and the support series being pushed away from the public?

Well it's understandable that it's not always on at a decent time, but like the others, I wish there were more options to show F1 and it's support category

If Sky are paying for the rights to the series, and their customers are paying to view the races - why is it not right for them to have a monopoly?

Coverage is also available via highlights on Ch4 and Radio on the BBC too - so not quite a monopoly, just the prime source for live races.....

Well it just seems that they canít let others show it live, not I have any problem with them showing it live

The problem is highlights isnít enough and how many will listen on radio

I appreciate that the coverage from BBC/C4 is only for F1, the support series does not get broadcast coverage outside of Sky at present.

Although who is at fault for this? TV schedulers will only put things on if there is enough demand - so is the lack of interest from viewers the cause of support series not getting airtime?

Well we get something with F1, but the support series aren't even on a cheaper digital channel.

Maybe the powers that be just didn't think about the consequences of putting those exclusively on Sky, even if there is not as much interest as their used to be

The name is of interest to the wider press at the moment yes but he is not setting the world alight on track.
