    True, they'll probably get it together the latter half of 2018... right before sky locks everything behind the paywall...

    I don't have the sky coverage but Damon has to be better than channel 4's Steve Jones, he's so wooden.

    I know people didn't seem to like Suzy Perry but I thought she was okay and at least showed enthusiasm he looks completely lost.

    I like Herbert as a person but he's an awful presenter, I do have access to some sky f1 show he is on.

    Yea Susie Perry at least was interested in what she was doing and was able to direct DC and Jordan who appear to have the attention span of children at times. Wolff has some good insights but she too is wooden. Get more Chandok, he was always great during free practice commentary the times he poped up. I donno what it is but Jones requires double the concentration to listen to. Its like listening to one of those text to speech programs.

    My God F1 coverage must be bad this year if you lot are missing Suzi!

    I'm taping it it skipping anything that isn't cars going round in circles really fast.

    Even Skys Coverage has not been great. Way too much extra stuff that nobody cares about.

    With the constant debate been can Lewis make it a championship fight or not. DNF or not finish first tommorow he can go do his music for the season as he wont win championship and p2 is guarenteed due to Mercs advantages.

    First time ive ever heard the sky commentary team sound worried that they might not have any show during Q1.

    Ferrari is no threat, If the track temp is not perfect they are not in the same race.

    Who want to bet MiniMax gets a bit... over-enthusiastic... into T1 and hits someone?

    as for Ferrari...

    Oi, don't you dare tar me with that brush! Her absence is one of the best things about the shift to Channel 4.

    Thankfully, the race commentary is fine.

    Rumours yesterday that Hamilton could take a season out. They got over this before so anything could happen.

    Fire Marshall spraying the extinguisher into the wind and hitting his mate in the face :D

    If Hamilton takes a season out he will not return. Hamilton either wants to chase down shum titles or quits.

    He has matched / beaten senna which was his big motivation.

    Think Nico just will not be renewed in truth. Get a 2nd driver in his place and give Lewis defacto number 1 status.

    Outside of Lewis F1 will struggle to attract the casual audiance that it needs to survive. Berni will beg Lewis to stay just for the sake of the sport.

    I voted for Rosberg as a driver of the day @ F1 website... Without his stupid idea, the race would have been so much more boring. :hehe:

    If Hamilton will leave Mercedes, then he would head to Ferrari in my opinion. Ferrari wouldn't let that chance slip.

    Great drive from Verstappen - that was a lot of pressure to soak up.

    The Mercs weren't missed, TBH.
