My father has Sky so I've been watching the races that Channel 4 do not
cover live on Sky and, I am very unimpressed with their coverage.
Channel 4 tend not to jump to conclusions about track events until they
have some detail of what happened. Case in point was VER going off track
at Silverstone. The twat on Sky was screaming about VER and RIC
colliding when then were over 30m apart. No effort made to correct this
error nor apologise to the two drives for the false accusation ...
Today, VET goes off and the impression I got from the commentators on
Sky was VET was 100% to blame. DC on Channel 4 implied that VET was to
blame but he was more lenient in his remarks in that the conditions
change so quickly and, by being the leading car, VET doesn't have
someone in front of him to show where the slippery patches are.
All in all, I will be very disappointed next year when all we have for
F1 is the abysmal Sky coverage.
As an aside, to watch F1 next year with Sky, I will have to pay around
£60 per month. I simply cannot afford that. Were it not for my father
having Sky, I would have to stop at the end of this year.
A bit of a let down for someone who has watch the races live from 1979
until the BBC mucked everything up and tried to save money for paying
Jimmy's compensation ...
