The scheduling argument is a red herring these days considering BBC2 daytime has been pretty much gutted of all new content.

It's pretty obvious that cricket has suffered from not having a presence...

The hour delay did not help because it meant the entire race was up against Wimbledon, rather than half as was the case in 2012.

Clarkson isn't really kicking on this season, disappointing. I didn't think it was good enough he seemed to think the restart would be a standing start rather than under the safety car.

You appear to have misunderstood. People don't watch races via Twitter, Twitter is used to publicise the sport and engage with the fans, thus driving up tv ratings that way. Do you understand now?...
