I too think the C4 team is excellent (and would be even better with less EJ & more MW), even Suzie Wolff makes a contribution that is more than just being married to Toto!
The shame for me in losing live races to highlights (apart from Silverstone) it that it will alter my personal viewing habits. Presumably the highlights will be shown in a prime time slot which is where I could not monopolise the use of the TV over my family ('The Wife' would hit me, or just talk all the way through it). What this will mean is recording qualifying and the race, avoiding the internet and news programmes, then watching them early the following day on my own.

What will be interesting is whether the deal will be for a complete sky production rather than C4 continuing to produce it's own content.

From the wording of the press release, it does sound like C4 have bought a package from Sky that would include Sky presentation and commentary. I can't see a separate production.

Would this open the door to DC and Webber joining the Sky team? In a way I hope not, as the Sky team work very well together.

Both teams, Sky and C4 work well together, I just have a slight preference for C4.

Got a feeling it's the same as now since Lee McKenzie has been posting about it on Twitter and Instagram.

Its the 40th anniversary of F1 starting to show F1 on British TV on a regular basis, with BBCs Grand Prix. Back then it was only highlights, now with only the British GP being shown live on FTA, with the other races in highlights, we have come full circle

Some of the hysteria in the comments on her twitter feed make me glad I'm not on twitter.

P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Its a much better outcome than I had feared.I find the Channel 4 presenters entirely adequate and hope they will have a chance to continue in some shape or form.Is it too much to hope that if the highlights are at a sufficiently delayed, they might feature Ted Kravitz's ramblings delivered from the pitlane after the race? I know some people dislike him, but on the odd occasion I have seen the Sky coverage at the pub, his reflections have added to my understanding of the way the race unfolded.

I only realised halfway through the race that the Brazilian GP was live on Sky One, which is included in my TV package. Was this a one-off, or have I missed other live races too?

It was indeed a one-off, of sorts. ISTR the British GP was also live on Sky 1.

To put the odd event on Sky 1 or Sports Mix is just a freebie taster...enjoy this then sign up for the one of our sports packages.

The equivalent on when the sports channels do a free to view weekend.
