VIEWER RE­SPONSE

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The news of the loss of For­mula 1 from free-to-air TV from 2019 on­wards has split opinion among the sport’s fans.

We ran a poll over our @Mnewsracing Twit­ter ac­count, which gar­nered 255 re­sponses. Of the feed­back, more than half of fans sug­gested they would stop watch­ing F1 al­to­gether if free live cov­er­age of races ceased in the UK.

The num­bers tally up with fears for the fu­ture of the sport raised by the Grand Prix Driv­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion ( see page four), which re­leased its state­ment crit­i­cis­ing F1’s busi­ness de­ci­sions within hours of Sky Sports’ an­nounce­ment.
