The apologia is at http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/sporteditors/2011/07/f1_coverage_to_be_shared_betwe.html

Comments are heading towards 4500 at a rate of knots. Mine's at 4250:

Sorry Ben, but while I can accept the argument that BBC needs to save money and prioritise what it spends on, I don't agree that this deal is the best option for anybod except Messrs Ecclestone and Murdoch.

You've given us a very high quality service since 2009, as shown by the awards the coverage has won, not least a BAFTA. I don't accept that the coverage won't suffer by shifting to show extended highlights or even the whole race on a delay. The BBC is either committed to live sport or it isn't.

The comments I've seen here and on other fora (facebook, ten tenths and various news sites including Guardian, Telegraph and even Daily Mail) are overwhelmingly negative. I think as an organisation you should reconsider.

I'd be disappointed if the BBC cancelled or didn't renew its contract with FOM, but better to do so and allow another free to air provider to pick up the contract for all live races.
