Chan­nel 4 praise

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

Chan­nel 4’s cov­er­age of the whole Sil­ver­stone F1 week­end, in­clud­ing free prac­tice, was fan­tas­tic, should be ap­plauded and con­tin­ued to show what can be done to please the many free-to-view TV spec­ta­tors.

Scenes of packed grand­stands, gen­eral ad­mis­sion and camp­sites made the Bri­tish Grand Prix a shin­ing ex­am­ple of why we need the his­toric tracks on the F1 cal­en­dar.

Sil­ver­stone, Spa and Monza are all awe­some venues for the F1 cir­cus that in my time as a petrol­head I’ve been to in dif­fer­ent F1 eras. But I will not travel to some far-flung part of the world to ex­pe­ri­ence one of the new so-called ex­cit­ing mod­ern cir­cuits.

The BBC drop­ping F1 was a shock to free-toview spec­ta­tors but Chan­nel 4 have stepped up and grabbed the ba­ton ad­mirably so I hope the cur­rent F1 ring­mas­ter is tak­ing note of their hugely suc­cess­ful broad­casts and the crowds the his­toric cir­cuits gen­er­ate.
