As the new F1 season approaches I find myself completely unmoved, as I do every season. That’s not to say that I’m anti-F1 in the way that some people are passionately anti-football. F1 just holds no interest for me. I do enjoy some motor sports, like the World Rally Championship and TT Road Racing but not F1.
Also, here in the UK I’m one of the few people not angry that the television rights are being shared between the BBC and Sky. I don’t think the publicly funded BBC has any business trying to compete with premium sports networks. It’s not an effective use of its limited budget, no matter how popular certain sports are. I get the impression that I hold a minority view about this too.
