It’s not often I post F1 related news on the site, but a little tit-bit of information passed my eyes regarding the upcoming season. Specifcally the BBC coverage. It’s this one line from the BBC’s Internet Blog:
Formula One! The Chain! Murray Walker! They’re all back on the BBC!
Yes, that did say “The Chain!” – as in the iconic Fleetwood Mac tune which has been missing from the TV coverage for many years, but as soon as those first few notes are played instantly bring back memories of Nigel Mansell tearing around a track, of the kind of wheel-to-wheel racing that has been missing from F1.
Alright, yes there’s loads of technical stuff about the coverage – including a very interesting sounding “split screen” view on the Interactive services, but no HD coverage.
