This is worrying for F1 fans because as we already knew ITV only cares about football so now they have FA cup matches to televise I can see Qualifying becoming a time delayed broadcast or hightlights package at midnight and F1 races being shown on digital channels so ITV can use ITV1 terrastrial channel to broadcast wall to wall football and coronation street.

I think we should be very concerned

Nothing to worry about, Bernie won't like F1 going to an exclusive Cable/Satellite provider because it simply doesn't reach enough people. To go that way is to take the High road to A1GP obscurity.

What is a serious possibility now is that F1 could go back to BBC, as after losing the Football bid they have a spare 300-400 million burning a hole in their back pocket. Which would potentially be a good thing as it would bring an end to adverts interupting the race.

ITV are contracted for 12 games across the season (Setanta have 17).

The FA Cup is what 8 rounds of matches ?? of which only the last 2 or 3 are in the F1 season. With Saturday Evening (5.15) kick offs, and Sunday 4pm (or later) I really don't think it's an issue.

For the England international coverage? well it's a Saturday where I'm sure ITV can get at worst a 3pm slot ...they might even want use prime time slot so that shouldn't effect the F1 coverage either.

Whats even more worrying is, ITV showed 140 hours worth of F1 in 2006, the USA showed between 150-170 hours and the Germans got 800 hours[*]

Talk about short changed in the UK



As for the footie, if it clashes, ITV will stick the F1 on either ITV 2, 3 or 4 and anyone without Sky is likely to lose out

[*] according to F1 racing mag

I hope they don't show more F1 on ITV. Despite the excellent Steve Rider the non-race coverage is awful. Even now they have abandoned the Bev goes shopping items.

Yeah, Steve has been very welcome addition to the ITV coverage in my book.

I do hope the Beeb have a crack at getting F1, as the BBC's sport coverage is getting ever more thin on the ground. And I'm pretty sure they'd do a good job of it this time around. And I'm pretty sure they'd have the common sense NOT to offer James Allen a contract

When does the ITV contract with FOM run out? Seriously though, I feel sorry for you ITV viewers, you miss so much action during the breaks. Here in Aus, because the races are nearly always on half hour - hour delay, Channel Ten stops the races (so to speak) during the ad breaks so we don't miss anything.

All the football they have is FA cup and Champions League. The cup is only on for about 6 saturdays in the year, and the CL is weekday evenings. Nothing to panic about folks!

ITV had the FA Cup coverage a few years back but I don't think it ever clashed with their F1 coverage or caused any probs for us lot so I'm not too worried.

What ever became of Bernies F1 digital,never has there been more comprehensive coverage of F1 than what was offered there you could move the camera around from in car to the pits etc and everything was covered from warm up to all qualifying,great stuff for f1 fans.

I got hold of some Premiere (German coverage) of the Australia practice sessions. That is how F1 should be televised.

It is still digital over there of course.

We in the UK will always get a raw deal whilst terrestrial TV has anything to do with it. ITV should be banned and people should have to pay a small sum for the privilege of a new F1 Digital.

Well, my point isn't that ITV should show more, it's just that we could get so much more.

Sky in 2002 was great. F1 on tap if you like, with the choice of 6-8 channels, shame it was such a dull season.
