    Because the rest were arguing over it. :)

    I hope it will be a corker of a season with so many ex champions. But who will have a car to match Red Bull?

    I watch the races 'cos I like F1, but I watch each race individually and it's not really a matter of the world championship.

    Right as next year it's going to be on bbc and sky I'm happy for others to come over to mine to watch the sky coverage however space is limited...

    Fill in your names here first come first served, equally if you miss out last time then you need to apply again in the next sky race...

    First race:Australian Grand Prix 18 March 2012

    I am up for Australia GP mate. Can we get drunk, smoke, slag off Ferrari, slag off other boarders and act like contenders? Can we? Can we?

    Just on Twitter: David Croft confirms that he's joining F1 to commentate alongside Martin Brundle. Anthony Davidson, Natalie Pinkham and Ted Kravitz are also joining the new Sky F1 channel.

    How long would it take for a 3 hour race program in HD to be encoded, uploaded and torrented?

    You didn't like Ant on the radio and FPs? I thought he was far more interesting and insightful that DC ever was.

    Kravitz and the rest are crap though.

    Kravitz is good. At least he can recognise when a car has a new front wing part or wharever. Try watching f1 on foreign tv and you wont be criticising the beeb's coverage for long

    We used to pre the big TV shows about 8 minutes after the end of transmission when I was involved in that sort of thing, and that included the time to FTP it to our topsite. Granted, that was in SD and usually hour long shows, but we've got faster chips and fatter pipes now :D

    so then (could google it I guess but easier to ask here)

    in order to watch the GPs on sky will i be able to add just the F1 channel or will i also have to pay for all the prima donna bollcks such as football?

    i *think* from this as a HD customer i will be able to watch for no extra fee?
