The combined average audience of 1.64 million viewers is the lowest average audience in the modern era for a Formula 1 race in the UK dating back to at least 2005.
Sky are paying £100m a year for F1 from next year. It might prove
cheaper for them to post DVDs of the race to subscribers.

Canada is the worst of all worlds for broadcast in the UK if you're not a
Sky subscriber. 11pm race start time, so you either stay up very late on a
Sunday to watch the highlights on the night before the working week, or
you record it and get up the next morning to hear the result on the
breakfast news programmes and spoil the event!

11PM start time - luxury.

Here in NZ the euro races starts between midnight to 2AM. A hanful are
afternooon, and the Americas ones 6AM or so.

So if I want to watch the F1.com live timing that makes it hard. But for
most races I do it.
