He could be resigned by Williams I suppose, but seeing as they've already resigned Maldonardo, I'm guessing that he's going...

F1 is open to ridicule when drivers can 'buy' their seats in an F1 team.

Can you imagine Man U with, say, Rod Stewart as a striker just because he had 'paid to play'!!

I agree it's a daft system, but don't forget that for the smaller teams, without the driver's money, the team couldn't afford to exist. :(

I am not entirely sure that that is such a bad thing. F1 is supposed to be about the very best drivers in the very best cars.

I always thought it was supposed to be about maximising income for Bernie. :))

Well I'm sorry to say I've lost all interest since it would be only possible for me to see half the races. :(

Have to agree with Pam.

I would love Sky but can't have it for various reasons. But it does seem that the BBC has drawn the short straw with the live races, I know they're showing 'extended highlights' of the others, but what's the point in that. I read that they were showing the non live races in full but then that seemed to change back to highlights, so I don't think even the BBC know what's going on :(
It's like no NHL on channle 5 all over again :(( :(( :(( :((

And don't get me started on drivers. I'm so peed off with Force India that I've stopped following them on twitter and Facebook =)) =)) (not that they care =)) )

I just hope Sutil gets a place at Williams or Caterham (get rid of Trulli), it would be such a shame to see him out of F1, but in a way I think it would be good for him to go to a new team.

But Helen, you need to look at the drivers and their ability to make a car go fast rather than as someone you'd like to take you to dinner! ;)

I think he is fast too though :p :))

I may have mentioned a few times that I think he has a lot of untapped potential.
I would actually route for Ferrari if he replaced Massa =)) =))

I feel like contacting the BBC and ask for a reduction in my licence as I cant afford to get sky to watch the other half, either that or ask Bernie to pay for sky for me............ X( X( X(

maybe it would have been better if it had been split between BBC and ITV............ :D

Bernie is nothing but a money grabbing ............................... X(

what does he want with all that money, he cant spend it all.................. [-x [-x [-x

If you know somebody with a sky id, you can use it to log in and watch it on your laptop or pc with SkyGo mate ;)

I already have Sky and am actually looking forward to the new season :)

I don't really understand why Tom is bothered about it. He proved this season that he is happy for the result to be announced anytime within the first six weeks or so after the race. :p :p :p

Every year I say 'No more .. it's cr+p'. Then I find myself getting up at some obscene hour just to watch Qualifying, ffs!

Next year it will be just the same. I will watch every race thanking my lucky stars that ITV no longer have any involvement.

Sky have promised not to interrupt the race with adverts :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

If Ferrari get their act together then Alonso will be the Champion. If not it will still be between Vettell and Button.. imho
