That's only an impression of what the BBC should do made by somebody on their PC, it isn't official BBC material, there are loads on the net like that, but the common thing is the chain being the music !! Reading about it all in Autosport over the past year that looks like the only thing that is certain ! The actual graphics we will all have to wait and see !

Best thing will be no ads !!!!

Cheers

Simon

Okay this is really going to make me sound young now as I've never experienced watching the F1 on anything else apart from the ITV. I have always liked the ITV intros but looking back at how the BBC and some mock ups have been made for this year I must agree with Tim about the music. Hopefully they will make F1 feel more British to watch and who knows maybe Donnington in 2010 really will put us back up there with the rest of the Worlds Circuits.

For F1 nuts out there go on the RED button on BBC intercative, they are looping old coverage from Australian GP's past. Basically these are the old BBC highlights programs. Watched the 1986 and 1994 ones last night (when Mansells tyre expolded and Schumacher drove into Hill (dirty cheat))
Murry and James, the Chain, Turbo F1 cars, lots of overtaking oh and a points system that worked !!! (Glad Bernies system has been scrapped this week !)

Tim, you will love it...press the red button NOW !!

Practice sessions ... red button ... do you know what times they are running these Simon. I know the recorded coverage is being shown at 1pm but not as long a program as I expected for their return to F1 ... only a few hours?! May have to trundle through the BBC website to find out. Oh thinking of that would be good if the F1 coverage is to be available on iPlayer for those occassions when I miss the race live? Now that would be handy.

As far as I am aware they will not be showing the Forumula 1 in HD, at least not for the opening season I last heard.

According to a reply by Roger Mosey, the director of BBC Sport, the network will not be making F1 racing available in high-def, though he does confess to "wanting to." Yeah, we'd love to say his "I'll keep you posted" remark gives us overwhelming hope, but sadly, we can't.

3rd Practice session on the red button at 3am Saturday morning
Qualify is on BBC1 at 6am (tune in at 4.55 and you will get the first airing of "The Chain" !!!!)


Watched the 1st practice this morning at 1.30, they use radio 5 live commentry which was good. New cars look good on slicks, not sure of the front wings yet but Brawn, Williams and Toyota look to have this rear diffuser thing working well for them, Mclaren look gloomy at the bootom of the times, but then I susspect they are looking to run full fuel for the race start to at least scrape a few points in the race.

Looks like it will be a fantastic weekends racing anyway.... oh and watche the session this morning was fantastic... 1.5hours uniterupted with no adverts !!!!
