Interesting - I think Steve Jones is great on the CH4 coverage, he isn't there to be an expert (and doesn't try to be) but to smoothly link everything else together nudge the experts in the right direction if they're veering off topic - and he's very good at that. It was the same with the "On the marbles" podcast they did for a while - Steve anchoring it and guiding it along but getting the best out of the other contributors in the process.

P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I can't say I object to Steve Jones as he does link together the racing and the peripheral stuff quite well.In fact I found that by watching the C4 highlights last year I was getting more done on a Sunday as the boring parts of the on track action were skipped over.the hard part was avoiding websites and new broadcasts until the highlights were shown.If they could show the broadcast at say 8 o'clock on race day it would be great.During the odd times when Top Gear is on in opposition,the +1 option would be useful.Lets just hope there are some highlights worth watching this year.

Actually, to solve this problem, we should hope viewing figures drop like a stone.
Otherwise, they think they are doing the right thing by putting everything behind a paywall

Subscription services covering all sessions where lesser teams may well get highlighted and discussed for several minutes at time with their sponsors fully on show, in addition to equally and race coverage.

It's not as straight forward as you think.

When IndyCar when to cable subscription, in the early years of the IRL running the series, a lot of sponsors jumped ship and went to NASCAR.
